"Conversations With My 13 Year Old Self" as written by Alecia B Moore and Billy Mann....
Conversations with my thirteen year old self
Conversations with my thirteen year old self

You're angry
I know this
The world couldn't care less
You're lonely
I feel this
And you wish you were the best
No teachers
Or guidance
And you always walk alone
You're crying
At night when
Nobody else is home

Come over here and let me hold your hand and hug you, darling
I promise you that it won't always feel this bad
There are so many things I want to say to you
You're the girl I used to be
You little, heartbroken, thirteen year old me

You're laughing
But you're hiding
God, I know that trick too well
You forget
That I've been you
And now I'm just the shell
I promise
I love you, and
Everything will work out fine
Don't try to
Grow up yet
Oh, just give it some time

The pain you feel is real; you're not asleep, but it's a nightmare
But you can wake up anytime
Oh, don't lose your passion or the fighter that's inside of you
You're the girl I used to be
The pissed-off, complicated, thirteen year old me

Conversations with my thirteen year old self
Conversations with my thirteen year old self

Until we meet again
Oh, I wish you well, oh
I wish you well
Little girl
Until we meet again
Oh
I wish you well
Little girl
I wish you well
Until we meet again
My little, thirteen year old me

    General CommentIt just such a relateable song for so many people. The lyrics speak to me in such a profound way, i think Pink is an amazin artist, she takes her experiences and writes about them, Its fantastic because its tellin us that is ok to feel down and hurt and angry. It'll pass.

    General CommentI love how Pink sings about her own experiences and shares them with people that may have had the same experience. She also sings about her beliefs and that is rare in the rock/pop genre. I love Pink!!
    This song speaks to those who have felt how she describes her life at 13 and it's letting them know that she knows how they feel and that it'll be ok in the end.

    General CommentI heard the Song once, nothing special
    Heard it twice, didn't like it much
    Heard it the third time, and listened to the lyrics, and it just connected. I could Imagine an older me, coming up to me, and just telling me all this. I feel this way, every single lyric, and it helps, with everything. I especially love the lyric
    You're laughing
    But you're hiding
    God I know that trick too well
    as that is what I do, smile and laugh, even though you are hating every moment of it...

    General Commentmy friend gave me her ipod one day and i came across the song we were on a school trip and when i listend to it i was near tears when i got home i instantly downloaded it every single lyric to me means so much to me then and still now ,pink is an amazing person for writing this song and without it i don't know how i would have got though it without her she is like the big sister i never had.I have spent many times alone listening to this song in floods of tears but with hope that it was'nt just me going though this hard time. the line your laughing but your hiding was one of the best lines for me as that was what i did and still do.one of the most powerful sounds ever written.
    to be honest its actally a postive song as she is saying that she is know the shell meaning you will get through this and it will make you a stronger person.
