Anyone I hate just stands by
Doing the things I can't stand
But do I say a word?

And I just mope around when boys I love
End up dating obnoxious chicks
But do I speak to him?

Why can't I be open?
Why won't my feelings show?
Why are my emotions so packed?
Why don't I speak my mind?

Let me hate
Let me love
I want to open up
I don't want to be locked up

Make me feel alive
Help me become happy
Show me how to speak up
Tell me that I can do it

Does anyone know what I mean?
Sure, I'll respect my elders
Of course I'll be polite
And I'll restrain my voice properly

But my mouth's gotta open at some point!
My mind can't be bottled up forever
All you people out there…
