  • Sitting in my bedroom tonight
    Thinking of how to change your mind
    Since you walked out my life again
    Yeah
    So I strike a pose and tilt my chin
    And hold the light to suit my skin
    Your favorite t-shirt on again

    Counting hours
    Counting lies
    Three, two, one
    And I smile

    Taking pictures of myself, self, self
    Taking pictures of myself, self self
    Guess I'm reaching out to be assured
    All I wanted was to be adored

    Now you're telling me I'm vain, vain, vain yeah
    But you don't feel my pain, pain, pain
    Facing life upon the shelf, shelf, shelf
    Taking pictures of myself, self, self

    Taking pictures of myself
    Taking pictures of myself
    Taking pictures of myself
    Taking pictures of myself oh oh

    I'll post it up in black and white
    With a depressing quote on my life
    So that you see what I'm going through
    Yeah
    This is desperation at it's best
    A conversation to be left
    But all my pride was burned by you

    Counting days
    Counting takes
    Three, two, one
    I'm awake

    Taking pictures of myself, self, self
    Taking pictures of myself, self self
    Guess I'm reaching out to be assured
    All I wanted was to be adored

    Now you're telling me I'm vain, vain, vain yeah
    But you don't feel my pain, pain, pain
    Facing life upon the shelf, shelf, shelf
    Taking pictures of myself, self, self

    Taking pictures of myself
    Taking pictures of myself
    Taking pictures of myself
    Taking pictures of myself oh oh

    Taking pictures of myself, self, self
    Taking pictures of myself, self self
    Guess I'm reaching out to be assured
    All I wanted was to be adored

    Now you're telling me I'm vain, vain, vain yeah
    But you don't feel my pain, pain, pain
    Facing life upon the shelf, shelf, shelf
    Taking pictures of myself, self, self

    Hey, what you looking at?
    Hey, what you looking at?
    Hey, what do you looking at?
    Hey, what do you looking at? (Taking pictures of myself)
    Hey, what you looking at? (Taking pictures of myself)
    Hey, what you looking at? (Taking pictures of myself)
    Hey, what you looking at? (Taking pictures of myself)
    Hey, what you looking at? (Taking pictures of myself)

    Taking pictures of myself
    Taking pictures of myself
    Taking pictures of myself oh Writer/s: Nina Lindberg Nesbitt, Thom Kirkpatrick
