Don't Look Down on Me
©2006/2008 Kevin Hill, Lisa Horan

Walking down the street
I know what you see
Just another bad girl
Making trouble for society

Did it cross your mind
That I'm a person too
I may not come from your world
But I'm no different from you

Chorus
Don't look down on me
(Look beyond what you see)
Don't look down on me
(Understand my fragility)

It must be so easy
To put a box around me
Check the one that says trouble
And let it be

Just know the flip side
You're being sized up, too
Not on how you look
But on what you do

Chorus
Don't look down on me
(I'm not a statistic you read)
Don't look down on me
(I'm a human being)

Don't look down on me, yeah
(Can't you figure out)
Don't look down on me
(What it's all about)

World's on my shoulders
People counting on me
No dad, my mama's sick
Three brothers to feed

Got to keep it together
My life's a living war
Underneath my hard shell
Is a heart that beats like yours

Chorus
Don't look down on me
(If you only knew)
Don't look down on me, oh
(Take a day to walk in my shoes)

Don't look down on me
(Maybe then you'd understand)
Don't look down on me
(Why I'm who I am)

Bridge
Who I am
Why won't you take the time to know
Who I am
I really want you to understand
Why you gotta look down
Why you gotta look down on me

Chorus
Don't look down on me
Don't look down on me
(Why can't you see the real me)
Don't look down on me
(Not what you want me to be)
Don't look down on me
(I wish you could understand)
Don't look down on me
(I am who I am)
