There's a girl
Who sits under the bleachers
Just another day eating alone
And though she smiles
There is something just hiding
And she can't find a way to relate
She just goes unnoticed
As the crowd passes by
And she'll pretend to be busy
When inside she just wants to cry
And she'll say...

Take a little look at the life of Miss Always Invisible
Look a little harder, I really really want you to put yourself in her shoes
Take another look at the face of Miss Always Invisible
Look a little closer and maybe then you will see why she waits for the day
When you'll ask her her name

The beginning, in the first weeks of class
She did everything to try and fit in
But the others they couldn't seem to get past all the things that mismatched on the surface
And she would close her eyes when they laughed and she fell down the stairs
And the more that they joked
And the more that they screamed
She retreated to where she is now
And she'll sing...

Take a little look at the life of Miss Always Invisible
Look a little closer I really really want you to put yourself in her shoes
Take a little look at the face of Miss Always Invisible
Look a little harder and maybe then you will see why she waits for the day that you will ask her her name

Then one day just the same as the last
Just a day spent counting the time
Came a boy that sat under the bleachers just a little bit further behind...

    We all want someone to accept us. The world and the people in it are harsh. Those that don't fit in are marginalized and sometimes bullied. Some retreat inside and have a hard time coming out. Take someones hand today and let them know you care. Some day you will want a caring hand offered to you when you no longer fit in.

    I think this song is about a girl.. Whose always invisible to everyone. She gets
    Unnoticed though she tries her hardest to be noticed even just the smallest bit.
    And then at the end.. Maybe,just maybe,the boy who sat under the bleachers noticed her and maybe wanted to befriend her.
    This song is really wonderful and is an inspiration for my upcoming story. I can really relate to this and i personally know how it feels to be alone. And be unnoticed

    This song means a lot to me. When i was three years old, i was diagnosed with highfunctioning autism. I've made alot of progress since then, and most people are surprised to learn i'm autistic, becuse i seem like the other kids. I acctually didn't even know i was autistic untill a couple years ago when i did a report on the subject, and my parents told me. But i still don't really "fit in. " i'm also really shy. I used to get picked on a lot, because i'd say things that were strange. So i just stopped talking to other kids, therefore giving them nothing to laugh at. Sadly, it worked. I mostly just get ignored now, and i'm to afraid to speak up.

    In 7th grade, i sat next to a special education boy who was in a wheel chair. (i'm technically special ed too, but i only on the level that a person with adhd or dislexia is. ) i became his keeper, and he became someone i could talk to. He and his aides would tell me every day how wonderful i was. I regained a lot of the confidence i had lost in the eight years before i had met him, but i'm still really quiet. But i at least know now that i'm not all the things they used to tell me i was. And even if i am, there is so much more to me than that.

    This song is very touching to me personally. I used to be the girl who had friends, then some things went really wrong with life, forcing my family to move around. Now, I'm seen as the quiet girl who sits by herself at lunch at yet another school. This song is kind of like a way to comfort those people who have a hard time. It's not typical for people to take notice of the fact that there are kids who are without friends, because it seems to be just those few once in a while who go unnoticed. Thanks, Marie Digby, for being someone who understands.

    When i go to school i try to remember this song, i try to remember that people are always waiting for someone to talk to. There are always people that are going to be mean and laugh at people, so you always need to be nice to people, you never know their story. I
