Yeah eh eh eh, oh

I pass my reflection, it's someone else
I see your invention and not myself

I turned into your perfect girl
A total stranger
Now I see and I don't want to

Being you when it's all just an act
It's overrated
The truth is I'm wanting me back
'Cause I can't take this
I gotta be who I am underneath
Who I gave up so you'd believe
Being you when it's all just an act

It's overrated
So overrated

I let you control me or so you thought
Don't think that you're perfect, you're so messed up
I hid away the best of me
Too scared to notice
Now I do and I'm not going to

Being you when it's all just an act
It's overrated
The truth is I'm wanting me back
'Cause I can't take this
I gotta be who I am underneath
Who I gave up so you'd believe
Being you when it's all just an act
It's overrated

Changing for a guy
Overrated
Living in a lie
It's overrated
Always asking why?
It's overrated

Oh whoa oh

The mirror is shattered
I'm finally free

Being you when it's all just an act
It's overrated
The truth is I'm wanting me back
'Cause I can't take this
I gotta be who I am underneath
Who I gave up so you'd believe
Being you when it's all just an act
It's overrated

Overrated, yeah
Overrated, yeah
So overrated, yeah
Overrated

Oh oh, yeah

    She sings about how it seems like something you feel like you have to do, changing for a guy, but sooner or later you'll realize that you'd rather be alone than to be someone you're not for somebody else. It's overrated!
