Am I not pretty enough
Is my heart too broken
Do I cry too much
Am I too outspoken

Don't I make you laugh
Should I try it harder
Why do you see right through me

I live, I breathe, I let it rain on me
I sleep, I wake, I try hard not to break
I crave, I love, I've waited long enough
I try as hard as I can
I laugh, I feel, I make believe it's real
I fall, I freeze, I pray down on my knees
I hope, I stand, I take it like a man
I try as hard as I can

    General CommentI know why kasey wrote this song and the meaning towards it about the radio stations etc and all the other stupid evil teeny boppers. But I also think that most ppl out there can relate to it because its just talking about you know ppl not feeling wanted etc or not being popular because they might not be pretty enough or not the "in" thing etc etc. I hope you get what I mean.

    General CommentI just began listening to Kasey. When I first heard this song, I felt like someone finally understood how I can feel sometimes. It may not mean exactly how I feel but if you look at it from different views, you can take it in in many different ways. She sings the music lovely and it sounds great. I'm surprised she isn't all over my radio station, YET...

    General CommentHmm that's really interesting, I do agree with taking it in your own perspective though, that's what music is: interpretation. When I heard this song I could relate it to a guy that I like who doesn't like me: am I not pretty enough? Is my heart to broken. Don't I make you laugh? Should I try it harder. Why do you see right through me? *I love this song*

    General CommentI know the true meaning behind this song, and believe it or not, it's not a song about teeny boppers on the radio. This song was inspired by the true feelings of someone I know very well. Everyone can relate to it because it's from the heart of someone just like you or me. It's a beautiful song.
