I need to be brave
to show you these feelings I have
For too long I’ve been imprisoned
by my own creation of silence

I’ve been too scared
Society’s been unfair
They say I should know my place
or they’ll put me in disgrace
A lady should save her face
and always watch out what she says

I hate it
I’m suffocated
Why can’t I too be honest?
Why can’t this be expressed?
I think I’m also entitled
to open up and be straightforward

These have always happened
just because I got way too quiet
painfully shy and frightened
Why do I have to remain such a coward?

Every guy I’ve ever loved has gone away
without hearing what I had to say
Some say it’s life, although not okay
Others still blame me anyway

I think I need your help
so I won’t be too scared
Help me to find my courage
to say those three words out loud
even if I’m still choked up
by my own self-doubt:

How about that?
