EVERY SHAMEFUL INCH

(Sarah Middleton-Woolley and Nigel Smith)

Standing in my room

Crying again

Two hours to go

Will I compare with my friends

Make up will have to be re-done

Down my face mascara has run

But I’ll hide the truth, nobody needs to know

 

The wardrobe laid bare

It’s torments on view

I fall to my knees

I just can’t choose

Ripped up clothes across the floor

Crying like I did before

But I’ll hide the truth, nobody needs to know

 

I raise my head to see

What is standing right in front of me

Every shameful inch

Of my reflection

 

It’s time to go

I’m still not dressed

All that pain

Thrown down the stairs

I turn up a little late

With a smile on my face

Cause I’ll hide the truth, nobody needs to know

 

Next time I’m asked

I’ll just say no

I’ll say I can’t make it

I got somewhere to go

It’s better off that way

I’ll conceal myself away

And I can hide the truth, nobody needs to know
