Don't Give a Damn

Standing alone
Suddenly he's
Confused, upset
Uncomfortable in his own skin.

He doesn't know
Who he is anymore
He doesn't know
Why it's wrong for him to love someone.

He thinks,
'I shouldn't have told them'
He thinks,
'I shouldn't be like this'.

Nobody ever told him that he's
Perfect just the way he is
And nobody ever thought to tell him that he's
Beautiful no matter

Who he is or
Who he loves or
What he wears
Beautiful no matter what.

So he stands alone
Watching people
Avoid him at all costs
Like they'll catch something

When really, the worst that could happen
Is that they'll give him the false impression
That somebody actually
Gives a damn.
