  • I can tell by the way you feel
    Something ain't going your way
    Jeans too tight, and your hair ain't right
    We all get some of those days
    Oh, throw that mirror away
    Oh, you know it's gonna be okay

    Take it down
    Shake it out on the floor
    You'll get over it
    Let it drop, make it stop, oh

    When you feel like nothin'
    Everybody's somethin'
    You and your friend
    Everybody jump in
    Look at us now
    Everybody shout out
    Oh, in the spotlight

    No matter what you're outside
    Get in with your inside
    Open your eyes, you deserve a spotlight
    Don't be from them, everybody's something
    Oh oh, oh oh, in the spotlight
    Oh oh, in the spotlight
    Oh oh, in the spotlight
    Oh oh, in the spotlight

    I got an "uh oh" on my face
    Wish I could press delete
    We all got something we don't like
    Even Angelina Jolie
    Oh, throw that mirror away
    Oh, don't be goin' M.I.A

    Take it down
    Shake it out on the floor
    You'll get over it
    Let it drop, make it stop, oh

    When you feel like nothin'
    Everybody's somethin'
    You and your friend
    Everybody jump in
    Look at us now
    Everybody shout out
    Oh, in the spotlight

    No matter what you're outside
    Get in with your inside
    Open your eyes, you deserve a spotlight
    Don't be from them, everybody's something
    Oh oh, oh oh, in the spotlight
    Oh oh, in the spotlight
    Oh oh, in the spotlight
    Oh oh, in the spotlight

    I can tell by the way you talk that talk
    That somethin' ain't going your way
    'Cause your jeans too tight, and your hair ain't right
    Well, we all get some of those days

    Just take another deep breath
    Try to reach your reset
    You know that I can relate
    Put your hands in the air
    Now let me hear you shout out
    Well, get outta my way

    Take it down
    Shake it out on the floor
    You'll get over it
    Let it drop, make it stop, oh

    When you feel like nothin'
    Everybody's somethin'
    You and your friend
    Everybody jump in
    Look at us now
    Everybody shout out
    Oh, in the spotlight

    No matter what you're outside
    Get in with your inside
    Open your eyes, you deserve a spotlight
    Don't be from them, everybody's something
    Oh oh

    When you feel like nothin'
    Everybody's somethin'
    You and your friend
    Everybody jump in
    Look at us now
    Everybody shout out
    Oh, in the spotlight

    No matter what you're outside
    Get in with your inside
    Open your eyes, you deserve a spotlight
    Don't be from them, everybody's something
    Oh oh, oh oh, in the spotlight
    Oh oh, in the spotlight
    Oh oh, in the spotlight
    Oh oh, in the spotlight Writer/s: Adam Einar Anders, Nicole Ann Hassman, Par Hakan Astrom, Shelly M. Peiken

  • Joel from West Hollywood, CaOkay song but it sounds very auto-tuned. I hate to say that because I do enjoy Sel's music.
