LET ME BE ME

Do you know what it's like when your whole world falls apart? 

Overwhelmed with all your fears and you don't  know where to start

 

See I'm a little naive to think that maybe I'm alright 

But then a little voice inside my head 

is telling me get out of bed

It's another chance, another day

but when I look around I can hear them say

 

My heels are too high, My dress is too short

I'm showing too much skin

I'm too tall, too small and too old

 

Oh oh oh why don't you let me be, let me be me?

Oh oh oh why won't you let me be, let me be me? 

 

Have you ever felt so low like your luck is running out?

And do you ever sit at home with your mind full of self doubt?

  

See I'm a little naive to think that maybe I'm alright

and when a little voice says it's too late

The other tells me I'll be great

Take another chance, it's another day

but when I step outside, I can hear them say

 

My make up’s too much

Jawline is too strong

My lips are wafer thin

The wrong face, wrong race and wrong shape

 

Oh oh oh why don't you let me be, let me be me?

Oh oh oh why won't you let me be, let me be? 

 

No matter how hard I try to be me

They don't know that beauty lies skin deep
 

My heels are too high

My dress is too short

I'm showing too much skin

My make up’s too much

Jawline is too strong

My lips are wafer thin

 

I'm too tall (too tall) I'm too small (too small), I'm too old (I could never be the perfect girl)

The wrong face (wrong face), the wrong race (wrong race), the wrong shape (Living in your perfect world)

 

Oh oh oh why don't you let me be, let me be me?

Oh oh oh why won't you let me be, let me be me?
