I don't wanna be her
I just want to be little old me
Shouldn't have to think
Who am I suppose to be today
And what give you the right
To tell me who I should be
Who gave you that right

Cause I, I feel lovely
Just the way that I am
Yes I feel lovely
The way that I am

I know you want the best
Yeah only good things for me
But you have to realize
I can't be all these things you project on me
Cause I'm beautiful to me
Doesn't that mean a thing

I feel lovely
Just the way that I am
Yes I feel lovely
The way that I am

I need that to be enough for you
Need that to be enough for you
Cause it's enough for me
It's enough for me

Am I suppose to give up everything I am
Just to make you happy
I thought I was the one you
Always wanted me to be
It turns out I'm just little old me
I'm just little old me
And that's fine by me

Cause I, I am lovely
Just the way that I am
Oh yes I am,
Yes I am lovely
The way that I am
I am lovely lovely
I am lovely

    I think that this song talks about a guy that ones tried to change his girl to be the girl of his dream, forgetting that she is perfect just the way she is... No one should try to change someone, it hurts peoples feelings and its just not right.. I say this because i absolute relate to this song..

    It speaks in the chouurs i feel lovely just the way that i am and nothing can change that. Just being you is enough and god loves you for you. Noone can take that away from you. And someone wants you to eb someone that your not. You just want to be yourself and not someone else.

    This song is beautiful. It says to not listen to what other people say, and to not care about what other people think about you and your appearance. People will try to change you, or try to make you change yourself, but this song tell you to stay strong and know that you are beautiful, and as long as you know you're beautiful, that's all that counts.

    To me, this song i dedicate to my dad. He thinks i need to change who i am so people will like me but i have people who love me for who i am and i love myself also. I grew up being someone i'm not and i hated myself. Why can't he just see that i'm finally happy with who i am for once in my life?

    Nobody should ever have to change for anybody, especially if it's a girl or boy trying to change for the opposite sex to make them happy. When you're in a relationship, you should automatically make your partner happy. There shouldn't be anything you have to change. You should feel comfortable being yourself around everybody. Love who you are--you're lovely already.
