Sixteen to Twenty Two

I cared too much
I wanted to change it all
My parents were worried when all the cute boys started to call
I ruined my eye brows
I ruined my hair
I'd starve myself all day and night
So I could feel pretty for that boy over there
I fell in love
I cared to much again
He broke my heart
So he could hang out with his friends
He wanted a rock when he could have had a gem
Thank you God
We will probably never talk again
I didn't care at all
I wish I could say that was true
But it's not true at all
I drank too much and felt very small
I spent too many nights feeling sorry for myself like I had hit a wall
I still wanted to change
I still wanted to look different
Maybe 22 will bring something more pleasant
