I make 1 mistake,
And suddenly i'm the devil?
You've never made a mistake,
Have you?
Well I'm sorry I'm not as good as you,
But has that ever really been it?
I've never been good enough for you,
Have I?
No matter what I do.....
Why isn't it good enough for you?
You should know better than to depend so musch on a 16 year old girl;
Shouldn't you?
It's me who acts like a mom almost 24/7;
Work is more important then your famiy.
Is that the message you're trying to get across?
Well I've got that message loud and clear.
So why don't you stop yelling at me?
I can't say anything of value to you,
Can I?
I can't change your mind about what a disappointment I am,
Can I?
I can't defend myself against your judgements.
Why can't I?
Because you bend and twist everything I say.
Can I not make 1 mistake?
No you can't- you say.
Am I supposed to be sorry I'mnot like you?
That I'll never make mistakes,
Like you?
But then again you're too prefect to make mistakes.
Isn't that right?
So I'll never be good enough for you.
Am I supposed to be sorry about that?
I'll neverbe good enough for you.
Is this the part where you want me to cry?
I'll never be good enough for you.
You think it upsets me?
Just because,
I'll never be good enough for you?
NEWSFLASH: it doesn't.
So I'll never be good enough for you.
Oh well- I'll live.
