She Hates Herself

All she ever heard from them was noise.
About how she couldn’t be like anyone else.
She grabs every tube and powder she can
Just to paint her face pretty like they said she should.
Just to paint ‘till you can’t see a trace of her soul
Maybe things will change. Maybe things will change

She hates herself
She hates herself
No matter what she does, no it’s never enough

She hates herself
She hates herself
Cause every time they speak , they say more than enough

She stopped eating, but was glad everyone liked her face.
It’s too bad she’s too fat for anyone’s taste.
Her parents would have wondered what was going on
If they cared. If they cared. They were too unprepared.
She’d dropped two sizes but it’s still not enough
If they cared. If they cared. But, nobody cares.

She hates herself
She hates herself
No matter what she does, no it’s never enough

She hates herself
She hates herself
Cause every time they speak , they say more than enough

She knows he is only trouble for her
But, like he said, nobody else cares about her.
She doesn’t want him but she still does whatever he says
Doesn’t matter. Doesn’t matter. So why does she care?
It doesn’t matter. Doesn’t matter. What’s with all the tears?

She hates herself
She hates herself
No matter what she does, no it’s never enough

She hates herself
She hates herself
Cause every time they speak , they say more than enough

He said he wouldn’t miss her
She knew he wasn’t lying.
Her friends will only diss her
Now she just dreams of flying

Her parents won’t stop shouting
She’s sick of all the crying
Everyone’s only doubting
She jumps until she’s flying
She’s flying
She’s dying

She hates herself
She hates herself
No matter what she does, no it’s never enough

She hates herself
She hates herself
Cause every time they speak , they say more than enough
