E͟x͟p͟e͟c͟t͟a͟t͟i͟o͟n͟s͟

Hidden from the world, their expectations too

h Hidden from the world, their expectations too

i h Hidden from the world, their expectations too

g i h Hidden from the world, their expectations too

h g i h Hidden from the world, their expectations too

I will never reach them,

I will never reach them, even if I

t I will never reach them, even if I

r t I will never reach them, even if I

r t y I will never reach them, even if I

So I change myself;

So I change myself; My face,

So I change myself; My face, my hair,

Everything that makes me ME,

Everything that makes me ME, no one will care.

Soon enough, I'm not the same as I used to be

No longer that little kid that everyone loved to see.

I have become a fake person with fake aspects

So afraid of their expectations of having to be perfect.

I have lost the only people that cared about the real me

Now I'm a nail, holding up their reputations like the tool they want me to be.

I am defenseless and the only thing I can do is be quiet

This is what I wanted, right?

This is what I wanted, right? The new look,

This is what I wanted, right? The new look, personality,

This is what I wanted, right? The new look, personality, and diet.

I wanted to reach their expectations and still,

I wanted to reach their expectations and still, I fail to do that

I changed myself for them but still, they walk all over me like a mat.

I guess their expectations were too

high I guess their expectations were too

I couldn't go that far

Now I have to live with them sucking me dry of myself like the leeches they are.
