I'm the best at failing certainly but that makes me best at something (I know which one I would prefer) You're not the worst at winning naturally I've got nothing on your charm (I know which one I would prefer) If winning isn't everything then I could say that you've got nothing (I know which one I would prefer) And breaking mirrors with each lonely glace beats failing life hands down (I know which one I would prefer) Don't expect from me what you hope to achieve I'm nothing compared to you But the question is do I want to be? I'm nothing compared to you I know which one I would prefer You've got such expectations That I can't live up to again Waste my time It's all I do in your eyes I will not be What you want me to be

As she looked out of her window Hoping it could never get As bad as this again Little did she know That there was someone Somewhere waiting for the chance To make amends And take the time to show With every word he said If you can honestly forget it I'd be happy to let it go It won't hurt you if you don't let it Let me be the one to show That every word I say to you Means all the world to me But as he screamed Each word from the top of his lungs She still didn't notice a thing She was too caught up To be able to see Or was it just that their friendship Meant more to her? And she had seen before How it could spoil everything If she'd just take a chance He could show her romance And how good it could be Take the time to try And think up reasons why I fight so hard Maybe it's all that I have If you could paint my perfect picture It would show every hopeless dream I keep to myself In fear of facing reality I can't stop now (I'll take my chance) I'm too far gone (I'll take my chance) And I'm just waiting for your hand (I'll take my chance) To stop painting (I'll take my chance) My perfect picture (I'll take my chance) And make it real.

When they turn and smile at you You Should be wondering, wondering why There's dishonesty in their eyes Don't trust a single word they say They love to hate the songs we sing And hate to love the lines They love to hate the songs we sing And hate to love Pull the book wide open Read between the lines You must be blind To think that they are real Don't search here for assistance We'll redefine their lies You must be blind To think that they are real Sparkle and shine and light the stage (They love to hate you, they are so blind) And show them how it's done (They love to hate you, they are so blind) They love to hate you, they are so blind They're so blind

She said I'm a lost cause Waiting for you Somebody to call my name And I won't stop until I'm noticed And he said I'm craving all attention That anyone can give And I won't stop until I'm noticed Stop trying to be (Stop trying to be) Original You'll only end up being the crowd Why can't you be (Why can't you be) Content with who you are Stop trying to be (Stop trying to be) Original You'll only end up being the crowd Why can't you be (Why can't you be) Content with who you are And they said We've been noticed but It is not enough And we'll do anything to get You to see What it means to be Original and different just like the rest And it makes no sense When you all claim to be Pioneers of originality Cos you all look the same And you all dress the same It's such a shame You need this You need this To make yourselves fit in You try so hard To be the only one But end up as a trend.

With each passing day As the aching pain subsides The memory stays ever strong As we begin to find That we can see A way to make it through To make it through To make it through these longer days That aren't the same without you No one knows just what to feel A chill runs through the room The stage will never be the same without you I'm wondering what to say to all these empty souls I know you've never felt as lost as you do now And you don't know where to go from here Don't worry Believe me There is no right way for you to feel Don't worry Believe me Because we're all there for you know Don't hide away, don't hide away He wouldn't want you to go it alone (One for the kid) We'll keep searching for better days You don't have to do this on your own.

I look around again At all the faces that I know And in this room full of friends I feel so alone I would have done anything To see you safe from harm But that was then If I'm honest, which I always am Then listen cos I barely know you Complaining that I have changed I'm the kid that you grew up with And I'm different But I've always been the odd one out Not afraid to show And I thought that By now you would have worked that out I don't want to be the same as you I'd be better off alone I'll walk away Just to save your breath I've broken my spine Bending backwards to please you If you're done with this And that's what I mean to you I'll break my spine For someone else's time Don't pretend you understand Or care to show when you go.
