I stand up and I brush myself off
and you won't even know I was down
if I'm screaming and crying for help
well I won't let you hear but a sound
cause I'm inching up slowly my way to the top
one day you'll see
how I long for the day when I'll hear you say
it's ok for me just to be me

cause I'm trying to make you
make you proud
so one day you'll see me around
so tell me now
are you proud

well I'm down on my knees
and I'm begging you please
do you think you can give me a chance
cause I'm trying so hard to
to be where you are
but I'm so used to hearing you can't
so until the day when I have the courage to say
all the things that are weighing me down
I'll just follow behind 'til I make up my mind
I'll keep trying to make you proud

cause I'm trying to make you proud
so one day you'll see me around
well tell me now
are you proud

are you proud
are you proud
cause it seems no matter how hard I try
I'm always met by disappointment in your eyes

so one day you'll see me around
