The Glass Child – Letdown lyrics

What if I change the things I say
So it sounds better in your ears
I can tell you exactly
What you want to hear

What if I change the way I dress
So it looks better from your view
I can pout my lips to fame
And be pretty instead of true

I’ve been trying to stay real
And true and proud who I am
All those ideals of how to look
I’ve been trying not to care

But I’m still holding my breath
I’m still watching every step
I’m still tip-toeing away
When I’m getting to ashamed of myself

I don’t want to be your let down
I’m scared like hell I’m not enough
I don’t to be your failure anymore

I don’t want to be your let down
I’m screaming loud without a sound
Have to find a way to
Be the best of me
Failure scares the hell out of me

And the music that they’re liking
Says nothing about the way
That I am disappearing
So I’ll keep it to myself

Though I’m mostly quiet
I’ve got a lot to say
But nothing seems to please you
So I’ll keep it to myself

I don’t want to be your let down
I’m scared like hell I’m not enough
I don’t to be your failure anymore

I don’t want to be your let down
I’m screaming loud without a sound
Have to find a way to
Be the best of me
Failure scares the hell out of me

If I’m not good enough for you
Am I not good enough for you?
Your expectations I can’t live up to, no

I just want to be someone
To mean something to anyone
I’ve got to hurry up to be someone

I am fading can you wake me up
So I can be, all those things that I’ve been dreaming of
I’m the fall, this is the cutting of my wings
Oh you’re killing my belief
To be myself
And if I can’t make my own way I quit
