stand still, look pretty lyrics – the wreckers

i want to paint my face
and pretend that i am someone else
sometimes i get so fed up
i don’t even want to look at myself

but people have problems that are worse than mine
i don’t want you to think i’m complaining all the time
and i hate the way you look at me i have to say
i wish i could start over

[chorus]
i am slowly falling apart
i wish you’d take a walk in my shoes for a start
you might think it’s easy being me
you just stand still, look pretty

sometimes i find myself shaking
in the middle of the night
and then it hits me and i can’t
even believe this is my life

but people have problems that are worse than mine
i don’t want you to think i’m complaining all the time
and i wish that everyone would go and shut their mouths
i’m not strong enough to deal with it

[chorus 2x]
