I wish could tie you up in my shoes Make you feel unpretty too I was told I was beautiful But what does that mean to you Look into the mirror who's inside there The one with the long hair Same old me again today (yeah)
My outsides look cool My insides are blue Everytime I think I'm through It's because of you I've tried different ways But it's all the same At the end of the day I have myself to blame I'm just trippin'
Chorus: You can buy your hair if it won't grow You can fix your nose if he says so You can buy all the make up The MAC can make But if you can't look inside you Find out who am I too Be in the position to make me feel So damn unpretty I'll make you feel unpretty too
Never insecure until I met you Now I'm bein' stupid I used to be so cute to me Just a little bit skinny Why do I look to all these things To keep you happy Maybe get rid of you And then I'll get back to me (hey)
My outsides look cool My insides are blue Everytime I think I'm through It's because of you I've tried different ways But it's all the same At the end of the day I have myself to blame Can't believe I'm trippin'
Oh oh oh oh oh Oh oh oh oh oh (oh) Oh oh oh oh oh Oh oh oh oh oh (oh)
