Everybody said
She was a winner
No one knew
The secret kept
Within her
Starving for perfection
Hating her reflection

She tries harder
Then the average teen
An overachiver
With low self-esteem
Wants to walk like a star
But she takes it too far
She's never good enough
Wants to be Mary-Kate
Perfect weight, 88
She's never good enough

Now her friends all know
About her problem
They all try their best
To try to solve them
She feels
Like she's on trial
But she's still
In denial

She tries harder
Then the average teen
An overachiver
With low self-esteem
Wants to walk like a star
But she takes it too far
She's never good enough
Wants to be Mary-Kate
Perfect weight, 88
She's never good enough

Who's in control now?
Who's in control now?

Everybody said
She was a winner
Noone knew the secret
Kept within her

She tries harder
Then the average teen
An overachiver
With low self-esteem
Wants to walk like a star
But she takes it too far
She's never good enough
Wants to be Mary-Kate
Perfect weight, 88
She's never good enough

She tries harder
Then the average teen
An overachiver
With low self-esteem

    It's about an eat disorder, and it brings to light the issues many teenagers face in this day. It nicely shows the truth. Sometimes the 'perfect' ones have the most problems. They are popular and constantly seen, and sometimes they can't reveal their feeling. It's hard.
    The lyrics are nicely written, and if you haven't noticed songs are like poems, and whoever wrote this song knows that, and they have balanced the music with the lyrics.
    Once again, beautiful. This is a type of song that deserves to be popular, rather than the songs about parties (which are nice, but too common)!
