I wouldn't have compromised as much 
So much of myself, for fear of 
Having you, hating me 
And I would've sung so loudly 
It would've cracked myself

And I became self-conscious 
Of anything exuberant 
I wouldn't have sold myself short 
I wouldn't have kept my eyes 
Glued to the ground 

If I had've known my invisibility 
Would not make a difference 
I would've run around screaming proudly 
At the top of my voice 

I wouldn't have said it was in fact luck 
I'm talking idealism here 
I would not have been so self-deprecating 
And I wouldn't have cowered 
For fear of having my eyes scratched out

I wouldn't have cut my comfort off 
I wouldn't have feigned needlessness 
And I would not have discredited 
Every one of their compliments 
It was your approval I wanted 
Your congratulations
