I can be selfish, yeah so impatient
Sometimes I feel like Marilyn Monroe
I'm insecure, yeah, I make mistakes
Sometimes I feel like I'm at the end of the road

I can get low, I can get low
Don't know which way is up
Yeah, I can get high, I can get high
Like I could never come down

Call it a curse
Oh just call me blessed
If you can't handle my worse
You ain't getting my best
Is this how Marilyn Monroe felt felt felt felt
Well, must be how marilyn monroe felt felt felt felt

It's like all the good things
They fall apart like, like Marilyn Monroe
Truth is we mess up
Til we get it right
I don't wanna end up bruisin' my soul

I can get low, I can get low
Don't know which way is up
Yeah, I can get high, I can get high
Like I could never come down

Call it a curse
Or just call me blessed
If you can't handle my worse
You ain't getting my best
Is this how Marilyn Monroe felt felt felt
Must be how Marilyn Monroe felt felt felt

Take me or leave me
I'll never be perfect
Believe me I'm worth it
So take me or leave me
So take me or leave me

Call it a curse
Or just call me blessed
If you can't handle my worse
You ain't getting my best
Is this how Marilyn Monroe felt felt felt felt
Must be how Marilyn Monroe felt felt felt felt

Is this how Marilyn Monroe felt felt felt felt
Must be how Marilyn Monroe felt felt felt felt

    This is about a girl who felt so. Left out, alone. And she's expressing her feelings. "i can never be perfect so just accept me the way i am even though i know im so.. Sad and not a lot of people accept me.. I can be a curse but i can also be a blessing so ust accept me the way i am". I can't really explain it. I'm not good at words. But this song reflects me so much.

    I think she means that whatever bumps in the road she faces (drugs, acohol) her man will always be with her. She says that everyone makes mistakes and that you don't give up trying untill you get it right, but don't hurt your self in the process either. She also says that if you can't handle me at some of my worst times you will never see the better side of me. Then she says that she is worth it, and that you can take me or leave me. She also mentions how she can get low and she can get high, and that she is either cursed or blessed because of what she goes through, even though she still makes it.
