The one thing I had- gone.
The friends I had- gone.
So you would think i had nothing left- wrong.
I don't need them to carry on.
They think they've won well i’ll show them.
At the end of the day if they left were they ever really friends?
If i don’t let it get to me it doesn't matter.
Teasing is only teasing when you let it get to you.
Don't listen to it and it’s pointless and meaningless.
Join in on the teasing as if you're joking with them and they'll stop.
So what if everyone knows something you'd prefer to keep secret?
You are who you are, nothing should change that.
They don't matter to you so don't let them get to you.
As long as you have willpower you should be fine.
And along the way you could meet people who care, people who wouldn't leave.
You know they are real friends because they accept you for who you are.
It’s not too late to start over.
It’s not too late to fix a problem.
So even if you feel like everything is gone just remember that thousands of people have dealt with it before.
If they can do it you can to.
