It Gets BetterIgnore their comments, ignore their jeers
Tomorrow is better, there'll be no more tears
Gay, lesbian, bi, whatever you are
Even with all this strife, you've come so far
Take one step at a time, you're never alone
Stay strong as you can, don't fear the unknown
Believe in yourself, believe it'll change
Entrust love to others, and never feel strange
Temptation may tell you who you are is not right
Take advice from the others, your future is bright
Eventually, I know, you'll see it come through
Remember you're beautiful just being you
What he doesn't knowIn a crowded middle school hallway
She held the hand of a nice boy
She smiles and pretends to like him
He was sweet to her in his nerdy way
She didn't want to hurt him
But she didn't want to date him
She kissed him on the cheek for show
Because she wouldn't kiss him on the lips
She'd been pressured into this
Living a lie every day and for what
To spare a nice persons feelings
To end a rumor that tormented her
To pretend to fit in for once
This had to end before she went crazy
She turns to him and says it's over
He's hurt but she stays strong
He'll never know the reason it didn't work
Because she was a lesbian
But no one needs to know that
It wouldn't have helped anyway
Pretending.Every day I notice my mistakes,
Every day I make the same ones,
Every day I live in a fantasy
Every day I still pretend.
Pretending is one thing, But
doing it every day becomes a skill.
I am an actress,
You wouldn't tell.
Act like the group
Show no emotions.
I continually tell myself.
It works. Nobody notices.
Finding a way to blend in is easy,
Keeping pretending is the challenge.
I am as real as the next girl,
Even if I pretend
Five years we've been together, This group and I
I thought they all would see past the plastic smiles.
Twelve years I have known two of them there.
Even they do not notice or if they do.
Do not care.
Pretending not to care is a skill.
Those words run through my mind.
I'm in a glass box where I can see out but nobody see's in.
Despite me leaving the key to the door.
Until that one person notices and comes to my aid.
Or so I thought.
They enter but do not see.
"I don't understand why she doesn't just tell
Thinking about you.As I sit here and ponder
I just can't help but wonder
if you still feel the same about me
Do you still love me, I wonder
Doth your love for me grow fonder?
I really don't believe it, honestly
I hope that you remember
you're the fire to my ember
you're all I think about all night and day
I'm in love with your blue eyes
and your smile that lights the skies
but do you still feel the same about me?
I recall one icy winter
the sharp air like a splinter
where you said you would hold me through the night
I thought "I must be crazy"
to think you're so amazing
because something about you just feels so right
I want you as my first kiss
Don't worry, I'm sure you won't miss
I'd be absolutely pleased to be your bride
I'd walk with you 'til sunset
best we not get our feet wet
in the to and fro reclining of the tide
And as I sit and ponder
I just can't help but wonder
What will it take to make you always mine?
