I'm a ghost of a girl that you looked right past
I'm a voice you didn't wanna hear
I'm a page in a book that you read too fast
But I'm still here

Never can't, never tried, never even asked
And maybe I didn't want to say
You shut your eyes,
Told your lies,
And you had your laugh
And that's okay

'Cause you don't know me
You don't wanna know what's real
And I'm not sorry for who I am, for what I feel
If you don't know me

I've got more on my mind that I've never told,
I've got pain that you've never felt,
I've got the scars I can deal with it on my own, I've got stories that I'll never tell,
But maybe it's just as well.

'Cause you don't know me
You don't wanna know what's real
And I'm not sorry for who I am, for what I feel
If you don't know me

I'm strong,
I'm a mess
I'm together
An emotional wreck
I can scream
I can beg you to see I'm alive

I'm awake
I'm unglued
I'm not gonna break down now

'Cause you don't know me
You don't wanna know what's real
And I'm not sorry

'Cause you don't know me
You don't wanna know what's real
And I'm not sorry for who I am, for what I feel

'Cause you don't know me
You don't wanna know what's real
And I'm not sorry for who I am
You don't understand just how I feel
'Cause you don't know me
