[Verse 1]
I take these pills to make me thin
I dye my hair, and cut my skin
I tried everything, to make them see me
But all they see, is someone that's not me

[Chorus]
Even when I'm walking on a wire
Even when I set myself on fire
Why do I always feel invisible, invisible
Everyday I try to look my best
Even though inside I'm such a mess
Why do I always feel invisible, invisible

[Verse 2]
Here inside, my quiet hell
You cannot hear, my cries for help
I tried everything, to make them see me
But every one, sees what I can't be

[Chorus]
Even when I'm walking on a wire
Even when I set myself on fire
Why do I always feel invisible, invisible
Everyday I try to look my best
Even though inside I'm such a mess
Why do I always feel invisible, invisible

[Bridge]
Sometimes when I'm alone
I pretend that I'm a queen
It's almost believable

[Chorus]
Even when I'm walking on a wire
Even when I set myself on fire
Why do I always feel invisible, invisible
Everyday I try to look my best
Even though inside I'm such a mess
Why do I always feel invisible, invisible

    This song is very touching to me. It explains me in my 7th grade year, trying to find out who i am and following whats in and whats not.even though i thought having completely straight hair, wearing tons of makeup and dying my hair so many different ways would make people notice me and make me feel wanted, it just made me depressed and making me addicted to pills and sexting doucebag guys and just making me invisible. So now i know who i am... The intelligent, confident, beautiful person i am today and no one can change that

    I think be yourself is enough to be attractive sometimes we want to do some changes n in this way we choose to behave like other one. Instead of being a other person, we can make some changes about ourselves example make some changes about our hair... I love people just the way they are

    I deleted this song from my phone because it unexpectedly spoke to my soul when i first heard it. Its a beautiful song but it damages me because i feel like that everyday. Look my best/feel like a mess is too much for me to hear
