Perfect Girls
by TLC

  • Looking at broken mirror
    I see the pieces of my face on the floor
    What's it gonna take not to feel like this anymore? (anymore?)
    Living for the outside but you're always lonely
    Don't know who you are
    I can make 'em soft or wild
    Doesn't take much to lose yourself (keep sayin')

    Perfect girls ain't real
    They hide who they are inside
    Now, perfect girls ain't real
    They live a lie
    But it's always on your mind
    'Cause you're all lying all the time
    Know that perfect girls ain't real

    Gotta learn to love yourself
    Gotta learn to love yourself
    Inside and out

    Playing a perfect role
    Crying deep inside, hoping nobody knows
    Tryna keep it together
    House of cards, don't fall (no, the cards don't fall)
    Only the dieter, you can starve yourself
    But you're still looking at everybody else
    Guess it comes down to loving myself (myself)

    Perfect girls ain't real
    They hide who they are inside
    Now, perfect girls ain't real
    They live a lie
    But it's always on your mind
    'Cause you're all lying all the time
    Know that perfect girls ain't real

    Gotta learn to love yourself
    Gotta learn to love yourself
    Inside and out

    Alone in the daytime
    Raging thoughts going through your mind
    Wishing you had her life
    Wishing you was on the other side
    But you are beautiful inside
    Don't you let 'em steal your pride
    You should learn to live your life for yourself
    No one else, yeah

    Perfect girls ain't real
    They hide who they are inside
    Now, perfect girls ain't real
    They live a lie
    But it's always on your mind
    'Cause you're all lying all the time
    Know that perfect girls ain't real

    Gotta learn to love yourself (gotta learn to love, learn to love, learn to love)
    Gotta learn to love yourself
    Inside and out (inside and out, inside and out) Writer/s: Carnoy Neal Watkins, Tionne Tenese Watkins, Raelene Arreguin, David Reed, Candace Wakefield, Desmond Washington
