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
