Gotta Keep My Head Down - Part 2


Gotta keep my head down,

Gonna do myself proud

Gotta keep my head down

Here I go


Listen to the rules

Don’t get into the wrong crowd

D-don’t get into the wrong crowd

Mmm


GIRL

I’m praying for the weekend

48 hours away from this place

Where I can be on my own

Where I don’t have to behave


This is what it’s like for a girl like me

Every day it’s hurts more and more

This is just the start of it

the calm before the storm.


BUSKER

Stop.

Will it ever really stop?

Since it started you haven’t slept a lot

Stop putting up a fight, let the bullies win

If it doesn’t stop soon then you’ll stop coming in


You’ve been pulling out all the stops, trying to stay focussed

Trying to draw attention but the teachers never notice

It can only get better, you’ll come out on top

So you carry on with hope and you wait for it to stop


Better.

You’re not feeling any better

I bet you thought she would take it and forget

That you didn’t try and help or that you did but not enough

And now you’re feeling guilty ‘cause she’s called your bluff


She deserves better from you and from the rest

And no amount of money lifts the guilt from off your chest

You could try and talk it out if only she would let ya

Let her know that you wanna make her feel better


BOY

If I could just be someone I’m not I could change the way that people see me change the way that people treat me If I could just Step up to the bar I could somehow go the distance I could help to make a difference (Repeat)
