about

This song is for anyone who still struggles to look in the mirror.

lyrics

Don't look at yourself today,
Unless you like how it feels.
Don't compare yourself today,
You won't like how it feels.

But everyday another,
Yeah everyday you're smothered,
By all the reasons to not get out of bed.

Don't judge yourself today,
You won't like how it feels.
Don't read those magazines,
Your self loathing is their sales.

But everyday another,
Yeah everyday you're smothered,
By all the things that you're supposed to be.

Can you be pretty?
Can you be smart?
But not that smart like you're trying hard.
Can you be handsome?
Can you be strong?
Don't show emotion can't you play along?
Don't be bossy and don't be loud,
Sit in the corner but please don't frown.
Take it from here boy speak your truth,
Everyone is in this room for you.
Girl, speak when you're spoken to,
Speak when you're spoken to,
Speak when you're spoken to,
I won't be spoken to by anyone,
Who doesn't believe.

That everyday another,
Yeah everyday you're smothered,
By all the things that are impossible to be at once.

Impossible,
impossible,
impossible to be at once.
