Open up your eyes, take a look at me
Get the picture fixed in your memory
I'm driven by the rythm like the beat of a heart
And I won't stop until I start
To stand out
To stand out

Some people settle for the typical thing
Livin' all their lives waiting in the wings
It ain't a question of "if", just a matter of time
Before I move to the front of the line

Once you're watching every move that I make
You gotta believe that I got what it takes
To stand out, above the crowd
Even if I gotta shout out loud
'Til mine is the only face you'll see
Gonna stand out ...

'Til ya notice me

If the sqeeky wheel's always gettin' the grease
I'm totally devoted to disturbing the peace
And I'll do it all again, when I get done
Until I become your number one
No method to the madness, and no means of escape
Gonna break every rule or bend them all outta shape
It ain't a question of "how", just a matter of when
You get the message that I'm tryin' to send
I'm under a spell, I'm in over my head
And you know I'm going all the way to the end
To stand out, above the crowd
Even if I gotta shout out loud
'Til mine is the only face you see
Gonna stand out ...
'Til ya notice me

If I could make you stop and take a look at me
Instead of just, walkin' by
There's nothin that
I wouldn't do if it was gettin' you to notice
I'm alive
All I need is half a chance,
A second thought, a second glance
To prove, I got whatever it takes

It's a piece of cake

To stand out, above the crowd
Even if I gotta shout out loud
'Til mine is the only face you'll see
Gonna, stand out, staaaand out

Stand out!
Stand out!

'Til mine is the only face you'll see
Gonna stand out

'Til ya notice me

    This is so cool!The meaning of this is that everyone should stand out and be themselves not doing what everyone else is doing.It means that you dont go with what what people think your gonna get.Just because your typical doesnt mean your not also original.In fact this song makes me wanna tell everyone who makes fun of me to just back off my case!If its my biz its not yours!Its between me,my family, and the person who did it to me!It just makes me so proud to have a person like Tevin Cambell make this song so people would know that there always original!Its just so heartwarming!
