I feel them looking down on me
Or am I paranoid?
Nowhere to hide, no room to breathe
I'm like a flower in the shade
I'm like a bird in a cage

I want a real life, I just wanna feel life
Getting tired of livin' in a bubble
Wanna get in trouble
Gotta be my own self, I can't be nobody else
And If I could only make one wish
I just wanna live a real life, a real life

Inside your castle in the sky
I'm just a prisoner
Sometimes I wish I could
Kiss it all goodbye
I try to please you
But don't I matter too?


I'm just a simple girl
In a complicated world
I'm giving it my best
But I'm in over my head


I'm like a flower in the shade
I'm like bird in a cage
