  • Never have I ever been someone who's had it all
    Like not at all, yeah
    And on occasion I could think too much
    I get uncomfortable, hide behind my walls
    And I talk in circles
    But at least I say what I mean
    And I rock my heart on the sleeve of my t-shirt

    So if I should die tomorrow, I'd die with all of me on me
    And if I give back the time that I've borrowed
    I know I gave everything, everything

    And no, you won't
    No, you won't forget, forget me no
    No, you won't
    No, you won't forget, forget this girl next door

    No, no, no, no
    Never have I ever met someone who worries like I do
    That's nothing new, yeah
    And I don't really like to get dressed up
    What's it to you? I know what I can do
    And I'm not Bowie, Prince or Queen
    But at least I do what I dream
    And I rock my soul on both sleeves of my t-shirt

    So if I should die tomorrow, I'd die with all of me on me
    And if I give back the time that I've borrowed
    I know I gave everything, everything

    And no, you won't
    No, you won't forget, forget me no
    No, you won't
    No, you won't forget, forget this girl next door

    And I may not've been a genius
    I'm just a girl with some reasons to stay Plain Jane
    But I won't go, do you hear me?
    I'll be sure not to leave 'fore you know my name

    If I should die tomorrow, I'd die with all of me
    And if I give back the time that I've borrowed
    I know I gave everything

    And no, you won't (you won't)
    No, you won't (you won't) forget (Forget), forget me no
    No, you won't (you won't)
    No, you won't (you won't) forget, forget this girl next door Writer/s: Alessia Caracciolo, Kaleb Rollins, Marc Soto

  • E-love from Ohio, UsaI think that the statement that Alessia Cara made is powerful and so true. These days there is so much hate and it’s refreshing to see someone point that out and act on it too!
