Lyrics




She had the mind of a woman, and a body of a man
No one she talked to,would wanna understand
Spent her lonely days pretending
Some how fitting in
But at night she put her high heels on
Showing her sexy skin
She'd tear up the dance floor
Breaking every rule
Driving every guy crazy
No one really knew
The struggle she was goin through
Playing different roles
Wouldn't let you get you close
Afraid to be exposed


Be you the real you
Love who you are
Don't let nobody confuse your precious heart
Somebody's right might be a wrong
Girl you know where you belong
Do what you gotta do
Even if the world aint ready for you


Guy at the corner store
Got a daughter who likes girls
No matter how he tries
Daddy can't change her morals
So he buys her pretty dresses
Instead of Baseball Caps
And handpicks her flowers
And kisses her while she naps
The girl loves her daddy
And wants to see him happy
Says "I do" to a man
Hugs her family at the wedding
But underneath the vail
She feels she decieved
Herself
Her man
Her lover
And the daddy she wanted to please




So easy to laugh at somebody
Without giving a chance
Single out the stranger
Not trying to understand
That people come in different
Sizes, colors, and beliefs
So quick to point the finger
Until the finger points at you
