    LYRICS:
    Hey homecoming queen
    Why do you lie
    When somebody's mean
    Where do you hide

    Do people assume
    You're always alright
    Been so good at smiling
    Most of your life

    Look damn good in the dress
    Zipping up the mess
    Dancing with your best foot forward
    Does it get hard
    To have to play the part
    Nobody's feeling sorry for ya

    But what if I told you the world wouldn't end
    If you started showing what's under your skin
    What if you let em all in on the lie
    Even the homecoming queen cries

    Hey homecoming queen
    How's things at home
    Still walking on eggshells
    When that curtains closed

    Did your daddy teach you
    How to act tough
    Or more like your momma
    Sweep it under the rug

    Look damn good in the dress
    Zipping up the mess
    Dancing with your best foot forward
    Did you want the crown
    Or does it weigh you down
    Nobody's feeling sorry for ya

    What if I told you the world wouldn't end
    If you started showing what's under your skin
    What if you let em all in on the lie
    Even the homecoming queen cries

    Yeah what if I told you the sky wouldn't fall
    If you lost your composure, said to hell with it all
    Not everything pretty sparkles and shines
    And even the homecoming queen cries

    Even the homecoming queen cries

    Hey homecoming queen
    Why do you lie
    When somebody's mean
    Where do you hide

    Sucking it up and ignoring the crap isn't bad. Letting it all fly... crying and screaming on occasion is also not bad. We all loose it sometimes.

            I'm really impressed with Kelsea, this is a very emotionally powerful song that sounds great. Not gonna be able to make it to my top 50 of the year, but I really do like it and hope it stays in the hot 100 for a while

                              This song just shows you that even girl as beautiful as Kelsea can be insecure.

                                                  I lost my brother this year, and I wanna scream about how much I miss him, but I can’t. My family are amazing but I cannot go to them with my grief because they are dealing with their own loss and it would upset them more. My friends don’t understand because I am always trying to be so positive and hopeful for them even though I am the one who feels completely lost and alone. This song has spoken to me and helped me in ways that Kelsea would never even realise.

The ones that make it hard, the ones that make you feel sad inside, this makes you not like yourself. To the outside people you're you, your happy but inside your screaming please let me be me, let me be alive. To be honest with someone means you might be letting on more than you like. You might get hurt yet again, your heart just might get yet another knife. It hurts.

They see that I get good grades in school and think that I should be going to the best colleges around because they believe that I am the best academically. However, they don’t know that these standards make me anxious and insecure about who I am as a person. I feel like I need to please everyone and get the highest grades because that’s what they’re expecting from me. If I don’t, I feel like I’m letting someone down. So, at night, I stress about homework and grades so much that I don’t get much time for myself and my wellbeing. I never tell anyone this, of course. I always brush it off by just using methods of avoidance, such as sarcasm. It doesn’t change the fact that I cry an adequate amount at night, and sometimes I can’t sleep because I am so anxious about everything. I feel like I can’t talk to anyone about it, but this song really inspires me to want to talk about it. So, one step at a time, I’m starting to talk about it here in these comments where my story will probably get lost. Me posting this on these comments isn’t so much for you, but it is for me. It’s growth for me, and any small step is worth it when you’re trying to change.

                                                                          Stay strong everyone, no matter your situation. Everything gets better; I know it doesn’t seem that way now, but it will. You just have to have patience. ❤️
