Everything We Had (lyric challenge)

You were the only face I’d ever known,
I was the light from the lamp on the floor,
And only as bright as you wanted me to be…

It comes through my headphones, me singing along the entire time. Story of my life… being only as smart, as pretty, and as talented as others wanted me to be. Well… I’m done with it. I’m simply done. No more down-toning makeup, no more dumb ways to wear my hair… no more walking away from the mike, no more dumbing down my answers so my teacher can understand it. It’s over. I stand up from the computer, exit out of Ficlets, put on what I want to wear, and storm out the door. It’s time to change things up.
