Layin’ on the couch just,
Hangin’ with my boys
We’re chillin’ up the house tonight
I’m being myself
I’m nobody else ‘cause
This is what we do alright
You’ll always find

[Chorus]
I’m not wearing any make-up,
Won’t hide who I am,
I’ll be what I am
I’m just being honest with my self once again
I’m my only friend

Kickin’ off my shoes
I’m strummin’ my guitar
I’m singin’ songs about my life
If I could tell the truth
I’d tell you what I meant by
Me, myself, and I
You’ll always find

[Chorus]

No more mirrors
No more vanity
Give it all away for free
Donate to charity
I am happy in my skin
I try, in my heart it's not the same
You’ll always find

[Chorus]

Lay on my couch, hang with my boys, chill at my house tonight,
Lay on my couch, hang with my boys, chill at my house tonight,
Lay on my couch, hang with my boys, chill at my house tonight,
Lay on my couch, hang with my boys, chill at my house tonight

    omg is it just me or am I like the only one who thinks her b-side songs are better than her released ones anyway this song is simply just about being yourself, and not hiding who you are, and usually when someone says they wear make up there often thought of as being fake or something, so maybe the message of this song is don't be someone your not, be who you are.
    I love the meaning to this song, makes me think.
