Do you see me - do you care
Ya talk about me - like I'm not there
Don't get a word in - when you're around
I bet you don't know - what I'm about

'Cause I will, I will speak for myself
What you see isn't all I am
I need a place to stand
I will, I will speak for myself
There's so much you're missing
If you cared you'd listen

You suffocate me - you drown me out
I'm tired of waiting - without a doubt
I feel I'm fading - I flicker out
My heart is screaming - without a sound

'Cause I will, I will speak for myself
What you see isn't all I am
I need a place to stand
I will, I will speak for myself
There's so much you're missing
If you cared you'd listen

I'm not sorry for who I am
Take it or leave it
It's my time to take a stand
Throw it or keep it
Know that - don't need to understand
Won't say it again

'Cause I will, I will speak for myself
What you see isn't all I am
I need a place to stand
I will, I will, you know I will, speak for myself
There's so much you're missing
If you cared you'd listen
If you cared you'd listen
I will, I will speak for myself
