Oh...

I saw you yesterday
And I heard what you had to say
All those ugly ways you
Think about me, yeah.

But I know it's okay
Gonna keep this smile on my
Face, hey don't change the way
I feel about my inner being.

'Cause I won't let 'em dim my light, and I'm holding
My head up high,
Even though my exterior
Is not impeccable to you,
I don't know if my
Rose is right,
But I'm gonna keep living
My life to fame, my name.

And darling,
I don't care what they say
'Bout me.

Imperfect; that's all
That I'll ever be;
And god knows that's alright with me,
'Cause I know there's
No one greater
And everybody's imperfect,
When you tryna live in harmony, but the song of life
Is out of key;
Just be perfectly imperfect.

Imperfect, imperfect, imperfect, imperfect.

As I look at the TV screen,
Internet and magazines,
So much insecurity surrounds me, wish I could change some things; gotta steal with my self-esteem,
Folks so superficial
Makes it hard to just survive.

'Cause I won't let 'em dim my light, and I'm holding
My head up high,
Even though my exterior
Is not impeccable to you,
I don't know if my
Rose is right,
But I'm gonna keep living

My life to fame, my name.

And darling,
I don't care what they say
'Bout me.

Imperfect; that's all
That I'll ever be;
And god knows that's alright with me,
'Cause I know there's
No one greater
And everybody's imperfect,
When you tryna live in harmony, but the song of life
Is out of key;
Just be perfectly imperfect.

Imperfect, imperfect, imperfect.

I may not walk like a super model, or look as flawless as they do; I don't know where you get off judging,
'Cause I'm imperfect just like you.

So I don't care about your status, so I'll swear up to here I've had it;
Ain't trying to win no beauty pageant, 'cause in my heart is all that matters.

Imperfect; that's all
That I'll ever be;
And god knows that's alright with me,
'Cause I know there's
No one greater
And everybody's imperfect,
When you tryna live in harmony, but the song of life
Is out of key;
Just be perfectly imperfect.

Imperfect, imperfect, imperfect, imperfect.

Oh...

That's all
That I'll ever be;
And god knows that's alright with me,
'Cause I know there's
No one greater
And everybody's imperfect,
When you tryna live in harmony, but the song of life
Is out of key;
Just be perfectly imperfect.

Imperfect, imperfect, imperfect, imperfect, imperfect, imperfect,
Imperfect, imperfect
