  • Made a wrong turn
    Once or twice
    Dug my way out
    Blood and fire
    Bad decisions
    That's alright
    Welcome to my silly life

    Mistreated misplaced
    Misunderstood
    Miss "no way, it's all good"
    It didn't slow me down.

    Mistaken
    Always second guessing
    Underestimated
    Look I'm still around

    Pretty, pretty please
    Don't you ever, ever feel
    Like you're less than
    Fuckin' perfect

    Pretty, pretty please
    If you ever, ever feel
    Like you're nothin'
    You're fuckin' perfect to me

    You're so mean
    When you talk
    About yourself, you were wrong
    Change the voices in your head
    Make them like you instead

    So complicated
    Look how we all make it
    Filled with so much hatred
    Such a tired game

    It's enough
    I've done all I can think of
    Chased down all my demons
    I've seen you do the same

    Ooooh

    Pretty, pretty please
    Dont you ever, ever feel
    Like you're less than
    Fuckin' perfect

    Pretty, pretty please
    If you ever, ever feel
    Like you're nothin'
    You're fuckin' perfect to me

    The whole worlds scared
    So I swallow the fear
    The only thing I should be drinking
    Is an ice cold beer

    So cool in line
    And we try, try, try
    But we try too hard
    And it's a waste of my time

    Done looking for the critics
    Cause they're everywhere
    They don't like my jeans
    They don't get my hair

    Strange ourselves
    And we do it all the time
    Why do we do that?
    Why do I do that?

    Why do I do that?

    Yeeeeaaaahhh
    Oooooooh
    Oh pretty, pretty please

    Pretty, pretty please
    Dont you ever, ever feel
    Like you're less than
    Fuckin' perfect

    Pretty, pretty please
    If you ever, ever feel
    Like you're nothin'
    You're fuckin' perfect to me

    You're perfect, you're perfect

    Pretty, pretty please
    If you ever, ever feel
    Like you're nothin'
    You're fuckin' perfect to me

  • Karen from Manchester, NhAlthough generally not a fan of P!nk (don't hate her; don't love her), I was curious about this song. The video for this song had me sobbing like a baby. Having spent my teen years with an incredibly low self-esteem, battling a bit like the girl in the video, I felt it keenly. I think this video should be mandatory viewing for all teenaged girls (yeah, boys, too). I know I'm making it a point to show it to my daughters when they're closer to their teen years (they're 8 and 10, so it won't be too long). Kudos.
