Take a breath, easy now
My eyes are playing tricks on me
Tell me the mirror must be lying
It's not what I want to see

How can I just be me
When I don't recognize myself
Wishing I was something better
I want to be someone else

Lately I've been fighting with that girl in the mirror
Who decides what's beautiful
We are all so different, not one is the same
Now it's time that we can all decide
What's beautiful

Look at her, so confident
Perfection, so appealing
She seems so happy but she is plastic
It's not what I want to be

I deal with this every day
I'm slowly starting to break free
Learning how to truly love who I was made to be
Who I was made to be

Lately I've been fighting with that girl in the mirror
Who decides what's beautiful
We are all so different, not one is the same
Now it's time that we can all decide
What's beautiful

I've had enough to see what's fake
It's always been my choice to make
Imaginary enemy no longer has control of me

We all define what's beautiful
We all define, we will decide
We all define what's beautiful
We all define, we will decide

Lately I've been fighting with that girl in the mirror
Who decides what's beautiful
What's beautiful

Lately I've been fighting with that girl in the mirror
Who decides what's beautiful
We are all so different, not one is the same
Now it's time that we can all decide
What's beautiful

    General Commentomg i love everlife and this song is by far my favorite! its basically about a girl struggling to find her inner and outer beauty. its very hard because everyone has this ideal image of how they should look and tbh its not healthfully possible! everyone is different and everyone is beautiful. throw out the mirrors and scales and fashion magazines! break free! be who you were made to be and LOVE YOURSELF!!!
