lyrics

Verse 1:
No one ever understood me as a child growing up
I was so different I was the odd one
Then at seventeen years I was one hell of a hot fuck
And I didn’t know it but I never gave up

If anything I knew that I had to try to keep my head up
Tried to appear strong & find people to love
And Sally my friend was always there for me
and helped me to feel special
Took life to the next level

Hook:
And now I’m here falling away
And it’s empty because I’m gay

Chorus:
Oh why did I let this
Why did I let this happen to me
And why’d I give up all
my strength and all my dignity

Verse 2:
No one ever understood my phase of wanting a vagina
I didn’t want a cock as a man I felt I wasn’t hot
I felt if I wasn’t a manly man I needed a pussy
I needed a nice dick I needed a roughneck
No one got that I felt lost no one knew my inner thoughts
“You came out of the closet was that not enough?”
It wasn’t enough cause I was still incomplete and it sucked
It sent me in depression oh no

Hook:
And now I’m here falling away
And it’s empty because I’m gay

Chorus:
Oh why did I let this
Why did I let this happen to me
Oh why’d I give up all
Why’d I give up all my strength and dignity
