I feel like a fish out of water, a bird in the sea
But in the mirror is a girl who looks just like me
She goes through each day like she did before
Suddenly she just isn’t content anymore.
Each day is so fake, words are so hollow
She takes all this in, but it’s hard to swallow
Who is she, this girl that I see?
We look so alike, but how can this be?
I’m a horse in the city, a dog in a cage
A little girl in a body that’s three times my age
That’s not me in the mirror, no not at all
This girl hangs her head low, I held mine up tall.
How did I get so out of place
I want to look in the mirror and see my real face.
I want to hold my head high, I want to see;
There’s a girl looking back, but… she isn’t me.
