"Speak For Myself" as written by Adam Watts, Andrew Dodd, Amanda Joy Michalka and Alyson Michalka....
Do you see me
Do you care
You talk about me
Like I'm not there

Don't get a word in
When you're around
I bet you don't know
What I'm about

'cause I will, I will
Speak for myself
What you see
Isn't all you
I need a place to stand
I will, I will speak for myself
There's so much you're missing
If you cared you'd listen

You suffocate me
You drown me out
I'm tired of waiting
Without a doubt

I feel I'm fading
I flicker out
My heart is screaming
Without a sound

'cause I will, I will
Speak for myself
What you see
Isn't all you
I need a place to stand
I will, I will speak for myself
There's so much you're missing
If you cared you'd listen

I'm not sorry for who I am
Take it or leave it
It's my time to take a stand
Throw it or keep it
Now that I don't need to understand
Won't say it again

(I will)
(I will)
(I will)
(I will)
You know I will

'cause I will, I will
Speak for myself
What you see
Isn't all you
I need a place to stand
I will, you know will
I will speak for myself
There's so much you're missing
If you cared you'd listen
If you cared you'd listen

I will, I will
Speak for myself

    General CommentI love this song... it said in the CD booklet cover thing about this song and in one line it was described. Something about 'kids shouldn't be ignored'. It's all about teenagers being able to make their wn choices and they should be listened to and they're their own person.

    And lyric correction, it goes:
    I will, I will
    Speak for myself
    What you see
    ISN'T ALL I AM

    NOT 'isn't all you', it's 'isn't all I am'

    General CommentThis song was created for their parents. It is their way of letting the parentals know that they have their own opinions on things and that they are capable of making their own decisions.
