I wish I could tie you up in my shoes
Make you feel unpretty too
I was told I was beautiful
But what does that mean to you
Look into the mirror who's inside there
The one with the long hair
Same old me again today (yeah)

My outsides are cool
My insides are blue
Every time I think I'm through
It's because of you
I've tried different ways
But it's all the same
At the end of the day
I have my self to blame
I'm just trippin

Chorus:
You can buy your hair if it won't grow
You can fix your nose if he says so
You can buy all the make-up
That MAC can make
But if you can't look inside you
Find out who am I to
Be in a position to make me feel
So damn unpretty
I'll make you feel unpretty too

Never insecure until I met you
Now I'm bein stupid
I used to be so cute to me
Just a little bit skinny
Why do I look to all these things
To keep you happy
Maybe get rid of you
And then I'll get back to me (hey)

My outsides looks cool
My insides are blue
Everytime I think I'm through
It's because of you
I've tried different ways
But it's all the same
At the end of the day
I have myself to blame
Keep on trippin

You can buy your hair if it won't grow
You can fix your nose if he says so
You can buy all the make-up
That MAC can make
But if you can look inside you
Find out who am I to
Be in a position to make me feel
So damn unpretty

You can buy your hair if it won't grow
You can fix your nose if he says so
You can buy all the make-up
That MAC can make
But if you can look inside you
Find out who am I to
Be in a position to make me feel
So damn unpretty
I'll make you feel unpretty to(I'll make u feel unpretty too)

Oh oh oh oh oh
Oh oh oh oh oh (oh)
Oh oh oh oh oh
Oh oh oh oh oh (oh)

You can buy your hair if it won't grow
You can fix your nose if he says so
You can buy all the make-up
That MAC can make
But if you can look inside you
Find out who am I to
Be in a position to make me feel
So damn unpretty

You can buy your hair if it won't grow
You can fix your nose if he says so
You can buy all the make-up
That MAC can make
But if you can look inside you
Find out who am I to
Be in a position to make me feel
So damn unpretty
I'll make you feel unpretty too

    It mean no matter who much you change on the outside it can be fixed. But on the inside is where it counts and if you let anyone make you feel unpretty about yourself what is the purpose of you being you. Stay true to yourself and no one can you feel unpretty. Life is about what makes you you. Not about what others make you.

    There is a person that makes me feel like i am ugly, and i want them to feel the way that they made me feel. People always tell me that i'm beautiful but this person has made me feel ugly. I can change myself, have plastic surgery or something, but i don't need to because i am actually beautiful, both inside and outside, no matter what people say. We have to accept ourselves for who we are because we are all very beautiful both inside and out no matter what people say.

    I have been pretty my whole life, their was a time when someone made me feel like i wasn't but that person was insecure about the way they felt inside and tried to use it against me. Strangers stop me everyday to tell me how beautiful i am, yet in times of setbacks or being mistreated by others, often people say to me your a beautiful girl life wont be hard for you. Little do they know all the darkness i have seen.

    That you can just be yourself and you don't need to to change so basically your beautiful in your ways and that no matter how you get treated your as beautiful as everyone else and that don't be ashamed of yourself just because everyone else don't like the way you look just hold on to your faith and don't change a thing of who you are.
