They thought me merely a stupid girl.

They thought I had no thought of the world.

But in truth,

My wisdom was years ahead of my time

With ideas that would blow their minds


I felt so imprisoned

I felt the need to hide

They kept me from flying high

Spreading my wings wide


I'm not naïve

I'm as wise as I can be

I'm not as stupid as my sister

And I won't be compared to her.

I'm learning from other's mistakes

And I know the right things

I'll be the person I wanna be

I'll speak how I wanna speak

I'm so tired of being told what to do

I'm so tired of you


They thought me someone with special needs

They thought I was too blind to see

But, in truth, I saw right through the lies

My mind worked in ways they never realized.


I felt so imprisoned

I felt the need to hide

They kept me from flying high

Spreading my wings wide


I'm not naïve

I'm as wise as I can be

I'm not as stupid as my sister

And I won't be compared to her.

I'm learning from other's mistakes

And I know the right things

I'll be the person I wanna be

I'll speak how I wanna speak

I'm so tired of being told what to do

I'm so tired of—


"I'm right, you're wrong

You're weak, I'm strong

You're a brat, I'm perfect

You're trouble, not worth it

You're naïve, I'm wise

No, I didn't lie

You're a demon, you're a mess

I hate the way you're dressed

Go change everything about you

I hate everything you do."


"Excuse me honey,

I'm sorry to say

I don't live to please you

I gotta live my way."


I'm not naïve

I'm as wise as I can be

I'm not as stupid as my sister

And I won't be compared to her.

I'm learning from other's mistakes

And I know the right things

I'll be the person I wanna be

I'll speak how I wanna speak

I'm so tired of being told what to do

I'm so tired of you

I'm so tired of you
