  • Too thin, too small
    One day, I'll fit in my jeans
    Stretch marks, dark circles, under my eyes
    But, no one wants to hear about that

    I'm sick of putting labels on myself
    Trying to fit in, trying to act like I'm somebody else
    So I'm taking all this pressure off myself
    I'm gonna say something for me, that's real

    It's okay to be lost and feel lonely
    Sometimes I just don't know what I'm doing
    One day, I'm beautiful, then I'm ugly
    But those days, they remind me that I'm human
    So go ahead and rip, tear me apart
    'Cause I'm not afraid of my flaws
    If the scars on my skin make me ugly
    Then let's get ugly
    Let's get ugly

    I know that they want, bright lights, highlights and contour on
    Too scared, to be vulnerable
    But when did we become afraid of that?

    I'm tired of all the pretty little lies
    Don't need a thousand likes
    To know we're still beautiful inside
    It's time to have the time of our lives
    And say something real

    It's okay to be lost and feel lonely
    Sometimes I just don't know what I'm doing
    One day I'm beautiful, then I'm ugly
    But those days, they remind me that I'm human
    So go ahead and rip, tear me apart
    'Cause I'm not afraid of my flaws
    If the scars on my skin make me ugly
    Then let's get ugly
    Let's get ugly

    I'm a recipe for disaster
    Or I could be the recipe for, the happiest ever after
    I'm a recipe for disaster
    I could be the recipe for, the happiest ever after

    It's okay to be lost and feel lonely
    Sometimes I just don't know what I'm doing
    One day, I'm beautiful, then I'm ugly
    But those days, they remind me that I'm human

    So go ahead and rip, tear me apart
    'Cause I'm not afraid of my flaws
    If the scars on my skin make me ugly
    Then let's get ugly
    Let's get ugly
    Oo-oo-oo-oo-oo-oo-oo
    Let's get ugly
    Oo-oo-oo-oo-oo-oo-oo
    Oo-oo-oo-oo-oo-oo-oo
    Oh, ugly
