Pretty dresses, sparkly shoes
Do you see me now?
I see you
And you're  perfect
And I'm in love
But you don't notice me
You don't see me
Am I not good enough?
Mascara, eyeliner, blush, lipgloss
Do you see me now?
I see you
And you're perfect
And I'm in love
But I can't get your attention
You don't like me
Am I too shy for you?
Low-cut shirts, short skirts, high heels
Do you see me now?
I see you
And you're perfect
And I'm in love
But I don't impress you
You don't want me
Salads, long runs, baggy clothes
Do you see me now?
I see you
And you're perfect
And I'm in love
But I'm too full
You don't like curves
No food, laxatives, baggier clothes
Do you see me now?
I see you
And you're perfect
And I'm in love
But you don't see me
As I'm halfway-gone
Why don't you see me?
I'm what you want now
Why don't you like me like I love you?
Maybe
It's not me
Maybe
It's you who isn't fitted to my needs
Maybe
It's you who isn't good enough
Maybe
I deserve better
Maybe
I don't
Need
To
Change

You see life from everyone's point of view. I love how well you tell this girl's story. It's sad that this is, for many girls, more than fiction.
