.wallflower.

i've got a lot to say to you
with words that may make no sense.
i've got some things to lay on you
that may cause some offense.
i'm sick of being a shadow,
of being a flower on the wall;
it's time for me to break my roots
and stand up strong and tall.

your ego may be wounded,
that's the warning i'll give.
your intelligence will be questioned,
that's the truth i'll gift.
your shoulder will turn cold
and your lip should curl;
because the dislike i feel
is sour and icy real.

i've got a lot to say to you
most of which you won't understand.
i've got some things to lay on you
and the weight will break your hands.
i'm sick of talking and being unheard,
of wasting breath on caring words;
it's time for the lies to be broken
and for you to be outspoken.

i've got a lot to say to you
i've got some things to lay on you
but you're too proud to believe.
