The Wreckers – Stand Still, Look Pretty lyrics

I wanna paint my face and pretend that I am someone else.
Sometimes I get so fed up, I don't even wanna look at myself.
But people have problems that are worse than mine
I don't want you to think I'm complaining all the time.
And I hate the way you look at me I have to say.
I wish that I could start over.

I am slowly falling apart.
I wish you'd take a walk in my shoes for a start
And you might think it's easy being me.
You just stand still look pretty.

Sometimes I find myself shaking in the middle of the night
And then it hits me and I can't even believe this is my life.
But people have problems that are worse than mine
I don't want you to think I'm complaining all the time.
And I wish everyone would just go and shut their mouth.
I'm not strong enough to deal with it.

I am slowly falling apart.
I wish that you would take a walk in my shoes for a start.
You might think it's easy being me.
You just stand still look pretty.

I am slowly falling apart.
I wish that you would take a walk in my shoes for a start.
You might think it's easy being me.
You just stand still look pretty.

    It already sickened me that one of my favorite pop/rock singers Michelle Branch has done a total 360 and went country. However, I can totally relate to this song. I went through this situation with people not accepting me for who I am, just by looking at my appearance, not accepting me for who I am on the inside, and you wish you can hide away from your problems. It also expresses someone walking in your shoes, then they go through what you're going through.
    So yeah, I'm a country hater, but this song is very meaningful. It's sad when you listen to it, and even just by looking at the lyrics makes you sad.
