You see me as just a girl on the streets,
so you kick me aside.
You see me as just a face in the halls,
so you push me as you go by,
then laugh at my tears.

You bully and you tease me.
You are so rude to me.
When you're not being mean,
you never even see me.

Lost in a mirror.
Trapped all alone.
Trying to find my place in this world.
I look on the other side and see...
the me I wish I could be.

If I were so pretty and thin,
like all the other girls,
Would I still be invisible?
Would I still not be seen?

You bully and you tease me.
You are so rude to me.
When you're not being mean,
you never even see me.

Lost in a mirror.
Trapped all alone.
Trying to find my place in this world.
I look on the other side and see...
the me I wish I could be.

Dont eat today.
Dont eat tomorrow.
Cover each blemish with 10 pounds of make up.
Try to be perfect,
like what you want,
so that maybe,
just maybe,
you will see me.

Lost in a mirror.
Trapped all alone.
Trying to find my place in this world.
I look on the other side and see...
the me I wish I could be.

Looking at the truth,
that is me,
I am shocked to see what I've become.

What happened to me?
Where did I go?
Who is this girl in front of me,
that looks so unhealthy and fragile?
Is this me now,
broken like I pray this mirror is?
Though at first I thought she was...
she's not me. the me I wish I could be...

I am perfect,
as...
I...
am...

No mater what you wish,
you cannot change that.
