Sorry, I Don't Fit

Box man
Is trying to box me up
Building sides that don't fit
All because of a phone call

Please don't do this to me
Can't you see you're hurting me
I love you so much
You are going to explain it to me
And not let me talk
Refusing to see
What I have to say
You're making the judgments
Without hearing me

I haven't done anything wrong
Just a song you never heard
One you don't know how to sing
Doesn't anybody know why
It's not their fight
A smile in my heart
Starts to cry
I've been though a lot of pain
Nothing ever hurt me this much before
To be falsely judged
By my friends
I don't know how or why
Just want to die
The more I try to explain
The crazier it sounds
As I look around
The sides of this box
Are closing in
We were friends
But if this continues
I'm praying to God
To get me out
I swear to you
God loves me
God loves you
This is hard for me
How about you
It's wrong to judge me
You wouldn't want God to scold you

People like my words
But they don't understand me
Thinking this man can't be
Everything I have said
Has been twisted and turned into something I have not
I'm figuring things out
And who should I be
I'm not too sure
Everybody's going to fix it
All this
I don't need that
I suppose all these questions and answers
    could have stayed inside
But why

God created a bird
A bird was meant to fly
Seeing everything from up high
Is everyone a wolf
That I should hide

You're a fish
Swimming in your pond
Very little changes in there
You do better that way
I'm not no fisherman

I don't expect you to be me
Please don't think I should be like you

I've looked and saw what you see
Just thought it was fair
For you to see what I saw
