Mother said, "Stand up straight, don't let your classmates make
You feel like you don't belong
So not like the rest of them, someday, the best of them
Will realize they were wrong"

But in my world, different meant lonely
The last place I wanted to be

Was standing out in a crowd
Where the spotlight finds you and singles you out
What are they whisperin' about?
You're thinkin' up ways to take up less space
Can't see the grace in it, standin' out in a crowd
(Standing out)

Too short, too tall, flower against the wall
The last one chosen to play
Too smart, too dumb, too strange a place to be from
Same shoes every day

With all these ways to be different
Then maybe that's how you fit in

By standing out in the crowd
Where the spotlight finds you and singles you out
What are they whisperin' about?
You're thinkin' up ways to take up less space
Instead of embracing it, standin' out in a crowd
(Standing out)

It's funny how now
It's not such a bad place to be
Standing out in a crowd
(Standing out in a crowd)
Standing out in a crowd

Standing out in a crowd
(Standing out)
Where the spotlight finds you and singles you out
What are they whisperin' about?
You're thinkin' up ways to take up less space
There's no escapin' it, standin' out in a crowd
(Standing out)

Standin' out in a crowd
(Standing out)
(Standin' out)
