It seems I have many,
So when I'm with them, attention,
I never get any.
They are blonde and brunette,
Dark skinned and light,
So whatever I am,
Just isn't quite right.
I thought I had all the ingredients,
But I guess it's the wrong combination,
The basics are here,
So I blame faulty preparation.
I've tried every style, every trend, every fad,
I've tried being myself, but I'm told that's not cool,
I walk down these crowded halls everyday,
And I still feel like I'm in middle school.
I just want to be the popular girl,
I want a hockey player to talk to me,
But second string is all I'll ever be.
I know very well that there's life after high school,
But there's still every day of this year to get through.
I know someone loves me, more than I can mention,
But is it wrong just to want a little bit of attention?
