Hey, don't write yourself off yet 
It's only in your head you feel left out 
Or looked down on 
Just try your best, try everything you can 
And don't you worry what they tell themselves 
When you're away. 
 
It just takes some time, little girl you're in the middle of the ride  
Everything, everything will be just fine Everything, everything'll be alright (alright) 
 
Hey, you know they're all the same 
You know you're doing better on your own (on your own) 
So don't buy in. 
Live right now 
Yeah, just be yourself. 
It doesn't matter if it's good enough 
For someone else 
 
It just takes some time, little girl you're in the middle of the ride  
Everything, everything'll be just fine 
Everything, everything'll be alright (alright) 
It just takes some time, little girl you're in the middle of the ride (over, and over) 
Everything, everything'll be just fine Everything, everything'll be alright (alright) 
 
Hey, don't write yourself off yet 
It's only in your head you feel left out 
Or looked down on 
Just do your best, do everything you can. 
And don't you worry what the bitter hearts, are gonna say 
 
It just takes some time, little girl you're in the middle of the ride  
Everything, everything'll be just fine  
Everything, everything'll be alright (alright). 
It just takes some time, little girl you're in the middle of the ride  
Everything, everything'll be just fine  
Everything, everything'll be alright
