"Welcome To My Life"

Do you ever feel like breaking down?
Do you ever feel out of place?
Like somehow you just don't belong
And no one understands you
Do you ever wanna runaway?
Do you lock yourself in your room?
With the radio on turned up so loud
That no one hears you screaming
No you don't know what it's like
When nothing feels all right
You don't know what it's like
To be like me To be hurtTo feel lost To be left out in the dark
To be kicked when you're down To feel like you've been pushed around
To be on the edge of breaking down
And no one's there to save you
No you don't know what it's like
Welcome to my life
Do you wanna be somebody else?
Are you sick of feeling so left out?
Are you desperate to find something more?
Before your life is over
Are you stuck inside a world you hate?
Are you sick of everyone around?
With their big fake smiles and stupid lies
While deep inside you're bleeding

This is a part of the lyrics from Simple Plan’s “Welcome to my life”. I like this song because the lyrics are direct and reflects the emotions of most teenagers when they are down. Frankly, my early teenage years was like that, full of uncertainties and contradictions. I’d ever locked myself in my room with loud music and shouted (sometimes cried too). That was the phase when my emotion changes very quickly because I wasn’t able to handle the problems I had with my family, friends, feelings, studies and myself (self conflict) well. After hearing this song, at least I know that I’m not the only one like that. I wonder how many of you actually faced those problems before and did the same thing like me?
As we grow, the fears and doubts we used to have fades away slowly as we gain courage and confidence along. Now, I’m using past tense for that. Hopefully, “Welcome to My Life” can be sung happily for we know we’re not alone…life is wonderful~
