Winning Song Lyrics

Why Does It Have To Be Me?

I walk into the playground,

Chills run down my spine.

Another day of torture,

I wish I could speed up time.

But soon it will be playtime,

I’m hiding in the crowd,

Hoping they won’t find me.

Find me crying out loud.

Why does it have to be me.

All this pain and misery.

I just want to be free,

Why can’t you let me be?

I know that I should share my

Fears with someone who

Could soothe away my worries.

Someone to help, but who?

And so I tell my teacher.

She’ll melt my fears away.

She talks it through together,

So why did I used to say,

Why does it have to be me,

All this pain and misery?

I just want to be free.

Why can’t you let me be?

Don’t let it get worse or you’re in for the worst.

No-one likes a fool inside the school.

But when you’re getting bullied

Verse 1

But it just feels like I can’t enter school.

It just keeps happening,

Over and over again.

Chorus

But when you close your eyes,

Does it always feel like you’re getting bullied?

But when you close your eyes,

Does it always feel like nothing’s changed at all?

Verse 2

Some nights I stay up crying in my bed

Because people have been mean.

These words of anger and blame just keep   haunting me, all day.

Chorus

But when you close your eyes,

Does it always feel like you’re getting bullied?

But when you close your eyes,

Does it always feel like nothing’s changed at all?

Bridge

I feel hurt when you call me names,

I might even feel ashamed.

Just tell the teacher,

Because she cares about us.

Chorus

But when you close your eyes,

Does it always feel like you’re getting bullied?

But when you close your eyes,

Does it always feel like you’re getting bullied?

But when you close your eyes,

Does it always feel like nothing’s changed at all?

Bullying

Verse 1

Do you ever feel like you have no
 friends?

Sitting all alone in the corner,

Everybody laughs at you all day.

At you all day, at you all day-ay-ay.

Chorus

We should stop bullying!!!

We can stop the laughing!

Make them stop, stop, stop.

We can make you feel go, good.

Verse 2

Cyber bullying is the worst.

You don’t know who’s hurting you.

Does it hurt like a painful punch?

Oh my God, that would hurt so much.

Chorus

We should stop bullying!!!

We can stop the laughing!

Make them stop, stop, stop.

We can make you feel go, good.

Bridge

Altogether a bully would hurt

Sooo much.

So you have to tell someone

One onneee.

Chorus

We should stop bullying!!!

We can stop the laughing!

Make them stop, stop, stop

We can make you feel go, good.

Speak up!

If you are a victim of bullying in any way ..

You are not alone,

So …

Speak up today.

We’ve all had it at some point

And it’s not okay.

Make sure to speak to somebody,

Or you’ll make it even worse!

There are playground bullies

And cyber bullies, too.

They think it’s so funny

To pick on people like you!

You can talk to an adult

Or a teacher at school.

They can sort it out

And things will be cool.

They’ll talk to the bully and say

“Leave them alone”,

And, if they don’t, tell a parent at home.

There are playground bullies

And cyber bullies too.

It is really silly,

So …

Don’t do what they do!

She gave up

Verse 1

She was just a girl,

Beaten up by words,

She couldn’t help but believe what they said.

She hid away,

Taken back by yesterday,

Couldn’t show her face again.

Couldn’t stay strong,

From that day,

Tears streaming down her face.

Chorus

Didn’t do nothing wrong,

Couldn’t turn back the page,

Used to be a happy girl,

But they made her run away.

Just because she was different,

Didn’t make her worth any less,

But she got tired of this,

As you would probably have guessed.

She gave up.

Oh, oh,

She gave up,

No, no.

Verse 2

Too many times she has cut,

And tried to commit suicide.

Told no-one else,

Kept it to herself,

That day she almost died.

People hurt her,

In every single way,

That’s why she’s not here today.

Chorus

Didn’t do nothing wrong,

Couldn’t turn back the page,

Used to be a happy girl,

But they made her run away.

Just because she was different,

Didn’t make her worth any less,

But she got tired of this,

As you would probably have guessed.

She gave up.

Oh, oh,

She gave up,

No, no.

Verse 3

To this day,

Because of you,

She couldn’t get through,

Nowhere to be found,

She was lying on the ground,

What did she do … ?

Chorus

Didn’t do nothing wrong,

Couldn’t turn back the page,

Used to be a happy girl,

But they made her run away.

Just because she was different,

Didn’t make her worth any less,

But she got tired of this,

As you would probably have guessed.

She gave up …

Damaged, Bruised, Broken and Confused

Sticks and stones may break my bones,

But words will never hurt me.

These words are lies because, in my eyes,

Words are worse than what you see.

“Why do people bully?” You may ask.

Well, the answer to that is that they are as fragile as glass.

They may seem hard and threatening to our eyes,

But inside they have probably led terrible lives.

Names are games they try for fun,

And they don’t really care what damage is done.

They may make you feel bad, inside and out,

But you’ll get through this without a doubt.

Broken, scarred, damaged and hurt, treated like filth,

No better than dirt,

But you’ll get through this, come out strong.

Show them they all were wrong.

There may be answers to why they do this,

But what they are, we will never know.

You can’t love everyone,

But what words can show are emotions running low.

So if you have something nice to say,

Express words in a happier way

Because when you put someone down,

You’re probably the one that ends up with

A frown

Picking up the pieces

You looked at me,

My heart can’t slow down,

I can barely breathe,

You did this to me.

I hope you pay.

I have the mental scars,

To remind me of each day.

I am picking up the pieces,

Cause she don’t know which way to go.

I am picking up the pieces,

It’s the end of the road,

And now all her time was wasted,

And I am picking up the pieces,

For her.

That beautiful girl,

Who had always shone,

Bullies took it too far,

And now she’s gone.

I hope you pay,

She has those mental scars,

To remind her of each day.

I am picking up the pieces,

Cause she don’t know which way to go.

I am picking up the pieces,

It’s the end of the road.

And now all her time was wasted,

And I am picking up the pieces,

For her.

She used to be a happy girl,

Living in a happy world.

But the day

She had to run.

Now she is a lonely girl,

Living in a lonely world.

The day the bullies

Made her their fun.

I am picking up the pieces,

Cause she don’t know which way to go.

I am picking up the pieces,

It’s the end of the road.

And now all her time was wasted,

And I am picking up the pieces,

For her.

Every Time

She came home again from school,

Tears streaming down her face.

She felt so hopeless,

Doing all that she could do

To hide the pain,

Sleeping restless.

Her mum and dad keep asking why

She hides her ‘phone under the pillow,

They don’t want to see her cry,

But their hearts are broke,

Not knowing what to do …

She’s feeling like a ‘plane that’s been shot down from the sky,

Their words make her cry

And cut like knives,

Every time …

He walks home today from school,

Bruises on his face.

He tries to hide them,

Favourite dinner on the table

But he feels disgraced with himself.

He’s so scared he can hardly breathe,

As he walks on home, all on his own,

And out from the darkness they come and chase him,

Down the street but if only they could see …

He’s feeling like a ‘plane that’s been shot down from the sky,

Their words make him cry,

And cut like knives,

Every time …

This world ain’t never good enough.

Outsiders and people sleeping rough.

I try to make sense of it but I can’t.

Now he’s running to get away from them.

He doesn’t see that car around the bend,

But now he’s fallen asleep with Jesus …

He’s feeling like an angel that’s gained its wings to fly,

Now their own words haunt them at night,

And cut like knives,

And cut like knives,

And cut like knives,

Every time …
