Opinions rule the world,
For each boy and each girl.
Why’re you so afraid to be different?
You’re so nervous that they will talk and laugh.
News flash!
They’ll talk and laugh regardless, be free.
Be the person that you truly want to be.
Everyone cannot be pleased.
Get past people’s opinions of you.
Get beyond what others try to put on you, that doesn’t belong to you.
Be free!
Let the real you shine so everyone can see.
The only opinion that matters is your own.
Don’t you see?
