For once, I feel okay
Saying this so openly:
Even with the others
It's about me.

I try to be humble
I try to live modestly
But once, for one day
Can't it be about me?

I guess it's cruel to say
I know you won't agree
Because I'm sure you think everything
Is always about me.

I know you're doing a lot
And I know it sounds crazy
But while I've tried to think of you
You've forgotten about me.

I'm fat, I'm ugly
I'm stupid, I'm lazy
So I can understand, I suppose
Why you don't care about me.

It hurts, it hurts
Why can't you just see?
You've thought of everything
Except thinking about me.

I'm not like all the others-
I thought you know that about me-
So for being so unlovable
I'll just say this: I'm sorry.
