it's not like they meant to hurt me
watching tv, checking britney, televised
my guys checking out her thighs
and i rolls my eyes and sigh
it's not like i even need to be
competing with unreality tv, fantasy
not for a smart girl like me
some days it's hard to be a one girl revolution

sometimes i have good days
and it's good to be me
sometimes i get the best of insecurity
and it's quite alright to be the one and only
but today i feel like the one and lonely

it's not that i don't know beauty
is only skin deep
just the skin i'm in, not the girl within
but one imperfection takes away my grin
not that i think i'm ugly
but acne throws me for a backslide
i wont go outside
makeup can't hide how i feel inside
some days it's hard to be a one girl revolution

somtimes i have good days
and it's good to be me
sometimes i get the best of insecurity
and it's quite alright to be the one and only
but today i feel like the one and lonely
oh, the one and lonely, yeah

we all have bad hair days
those nothing good about me days
we just keep moving on
cause they'll be gone
and we'll still be here going on
we have our yesterdays
no lunch cause our jeans don't fit days
we just keep moving on
cause they'll be gone
and we'll still be here going on

sometimes i have bad days
and it's hard to be me
sometimes i get brought down by insecurity
and i have my days where i'm the one and lonely
but today i chose to be the one and only
yeah, i'm the one and only, yeah

    General CommentI LOVE this song! Its just about how we all have bad days where we just feel like we're all alone in the world and no one out there understands what we feel, but you hear this song and realize that you arent such a freak after all.

    General CommentTo me, this song is talking about how it can be hard to be the only girl a guy sees, and how you don't always feel important to a guy. But in the end, you can chose to be the one and only. The girl knows that beauty is superficial, but when some guys (and girlds) only see superficial things (yes, I realize not all guys are like this) it's hard not to want to be beautiful.
