I wrote this song to comfort and empower victims of bullying. It has won awards from Seventeen Magazine and Abercrombie & Fitch, and appears in anti-bullying PSA's by both companies shown on the web and in schools. I have received messages from victims around the world that this song has inspired, consoled, and even saved lives. I hope it continues to help others. Don't ever change who you are for someone else!

Lyrics

Verse 1:
You’re too fat you’re too tall too short don’t fit in at all, you’re not cool enough for me.
You’re too punk you’re too nerd too gay insert any word, just stay away from me.
Pre-chorus:
Blowin them off doesn’t work cuz what they say really hurts but they’re just too blind to see.
That their words cut like knives, they’re probably shortening your life, picking at you piece by piece.
Chorus:
Because the harder you try the harder you fall, some are never gonna like you at all.
Don’t let 'em in don’t let 'em in don’t try to be something you’re not.
The harder you try the harder you fall, it’s not gonna help you out at all.
Don’t let 'em in don’t let 'em in don’t let em break your heart.
Verse 2:
Wanna scream wanna shout, who said being different means they kick you out? Keep your identity.
Don’t stay up late at night picking at your flaws, you’ll never win the fight, you’re your own worst enemy.
Pre-chorus:
Blowin 'em off doesn’t work cuz what they say really hurts but they’re just too blind to see
That their words cut like knives they’re probably shortening your life picking at you piece by piece.
Chorus:
Because the harder you try the harder you fall, some are never gonna like you at all.
Don’t let 'em in don’t let 'em in, don’t try to be something your'e not.
The harder you try the harder you fall, it's not gonna help you out at all.
Don’t let 'em in don’t let 'em in don’t let 'em break your heart.
Bridge:
Although you're crying on the inside don’t let them realize, they got to you.
I know you're dying on the inside, here’s my shoulder I’ll let you cry, I got you.
Chorus:
Because the harder you try the harder you fall, some are never gonna like you at all.
Don’t let 'em in don’t let 'em in don’t try and be something you're not.
The harder you try the harder you fall, it’s not gonna help you out at all.
Don’t let 'em in don’t let 'em in don’t let 'em break your heart.
