I was standing there waiting for your approval,
Waiting for you to acknowledge I exist
Waiting for your acceptance,
Waiting to hear I love you no matter what
Waiting to see the slightest glimpse of some emotion you might feel for me
Waiting to hear you tell me it's alright I'm not perfect,
Waiting on the day when I get tired of trying to please you
Waiting on the day when you don't get to decide what makes me happy anymore
Waiting on the day when my opinion means more to me than yours
Waiting on the day when I love myself even if you don't
That day has finally come and I am no longer waiting
No more will I ever live my life to please you
I now live my life for me
