  1. Do you ever feel like a plastic bag
  2. Drifting through the wind, wanting to start again?
  3. Do you ever feel, feel so paper thin
  4. Like a house of cards, one blow from caving in?

  1. Do you ever feel like nobody notices you
  2. Going places you don't know wishing you could start you life all over again
  3. Asking if you have a low self esteem
  4. And feel like you are just going to collapse and give up
