How perfect my life may seem to you
I’m the perfect one so you all think
You couldn’t be anymore wrong if you tried.
I’m not perfect!!!
Why do you always expect so much of me?

I’m no different then or her or even her.
Why does it matter so much to you for me to be perfect?
Why can’t I just be like everyone else?
I’m no prettier then her, no smarter then her.
I know all of you are just here cause you wanna be friends with “the perfect girl”

I’m gonna say it now for all of you to hear.
I want a normal life normal friends that don’t expect me to be perfect
I want them to expect me to be me.
The girl who hates being known as the perfect girl
Wanna ask me how I stay perfect now?
