    people dissapoint
    don't take it personally
    that's what they tell me

    I do a good job
    I put it out of my mind
    turn my attention

    but it seems all wrong
    why should I get used to that
    being let down - why?

    people say my worth
    is gold but seem to lead me
    in a let down faze

    trying my best to
    rise above the past pain said
    can't go on this way

    why why why why me
    let down again and again
    from the same people

    They say I am worth
    Yet they let me down anyway
    I got feelings too

    Do my best always
    And treat folks right yet they blind
    And the let down comes

    Within me I know
    I' m a true friend take a look
    Stop letting me down

    people are careless
    try not to let it hurt me
    disregard feels bad

    easy not to care
    maybe that's why many don't
    wish I didn't feel

    I am not famous
    So why shine the light on me?
    What's so intriguing?

    Just trying to live
    Making it from day to day
    Like you try to do

    Perhaps you see what
    I still could be....Secretly,
    do you admire me?

    I need love badly
    too used to dissappointment
    I don't fully trust
