She stares at the sun

While everyone else has fun

She closes her eyes and takes a breath

While everyone else talks about life and death

She goes ahead and takes a nap

While everyone else plays a game called Trap

Everyone besides her likes to have fun

While she likes to look at the sun

Everyone besides her likes to chat

While she likes to lay on the ground flat

Everyone besides her likes to play games

While she likes to think about all her nicknames

People wonder why

She's so shy

She can't answer their questions

Because she's too busy with her collections

Everyone stares at her

Wondering why she's not happy

She's too busy thinking about her past

To talk about the forecast

People waste their time on nonsense

She just thinks it’s all a disturbance

She likes to choose her words carefully

People decide it’s more important to be friendly

She wonders why people talk all the time

She'd instead write a poem that rhymes

People want to sit and talk

She'd instead take her dog on a walk

People like to dress up and attend parties

She'd rather talk to a bunch of smarties

People like to fight with their siblings

She'd instead stare at paintings

Her little sister loves to waste her time

While she likes to make lemonade with limes

Her little brother likes to play weird games

No wonder why people call him names

She stares at the sun

While everyone else has fun

She closes her eyes and takes a breath

While everyone else talks about life and death

She goes ahead and takes a nap

While everyone else plays a game called Trap

People like to keep up with the latest trends

She'd rather wear the same clothes as her friends

She doesn't get why people waste their time on useless things

When everything you need is in your savings

She's not like everyone else, so what?

At least she's not wasting her time trying to act like she's smart.
