"Imperfect is the new perfect" as written by and Caitlin Crosby....
Compare the way my body looks through the magazines,
dont know why everybody's buying into the scene.
So I'm gonna drive down the boulevard
not caring who has the fastest car,
tone down the makeup, and the noise,
cause whats inside will bring the boys.

I dont wanna look like you because
you're too perfect
you're too perfect.
and I dont wanna fill your shoes cause
its not worth it
its not worth it
dont fill the mold, i am real
too colorful to conceal.
imperfect is the new perfect
imperfect is the new perfect

if skin and bones is the secret to all your happiness
then pop your pills cause the money is never gonna last

so save the plastic for the toys,
come out your shell just make a noise

im gonna run
im gonna live
im gonna smile and not fit in

im gonna dance
im gonna strut
i'll shake my curves
and not give a fuck

i dont wanna look like you because
your too perfect
your too perfect.
and i dont wanna fill your shoes cause its
not worth it its not worth it
dont fit the mold, i am real.
too colorful to conceal.
imperfect is the new perfect
imperfect is the new perfect

just dry your eyes your beautiful
i understand its logical
cause these images are everywhere
they're make believe so dont compare
i dont wanna compare

were every shape and size
you know we're
just perfect
were just perfect
we love our hips our thighs
because they're
just perfect
just perfect
dont fit the mold, i am real.
to colorful to conceal.
imperfect is the new perfect
imperfect is the new perfect

i dont wanna look like you because
your too perfect
your too perfect.
and i dont wanna fill your shoes because its
not worth it its not worth it
dont fit the mold, i am real
too colorful to conceal.
imperfect is the new perfect
imperfect is the new perfect

imperfect is the new perfect
imperfect is the new perfect
imperfect is the new perfect

    General Commenti found this song through a shanedawsontv video on youtube, too. its my favorite song at the moment.. hah. the message is ungodly obvious. the idea of 'perfect' that the media gives us is a load of crap. no REAL person is anything like that. "Were every shape and size, you know were just perfect" People are in every size and shape and were perfect in our own way. Our imperfections make us perfect.
    my favorite line in the entire song is- "I don't fit the mold, I am real, too colorful, to conceal."
