Made a wrong turn, once or twice
Dug my way out, blood and fire
Bad decisions, that's alright
Welcome to my silly life

Mistreated, misplaced, misunderstood
Miss, no way it's all good, it didn't slow me down
Mistaken, always second guessing
Underestimated, look, I'm still around

Pretty, pretty please, don't you ever, ever feel
Like you're less than, Fuckin' perfect
Pretty, pretty please, if you ever, ever feel
Like you're nothing you're fuckin' perfect to me

You're so mean when you talk
About yourself, you are wrong
Change the voices in your head
Make them like you instead

So complicated, look how big you'll make it
Filled with so much hatred, such a tired game
It's enough, I've done all I can think of
Chased down all my demons, see you do the same

Pretty, pretty please, don't you ever, ever feel
Like you're less than, fuckin' perfect
Pretty, pretty please, if you ever, ever feel
Like you're nothing, you're fuckin' perfect to me

The whole world is scared so I swallow the fear
The only thing I should be drinking is an ice cold beer
So cool in lying and we try, try, try
But we try too hard, it's a waste of my time

Done looking for the critics 'cause they're everywhere
They don't like my jeans, they don't get my hair
Change ourselves and we do it all the time
Why do we do that? Why do I do that? Why do I do that?

Yaa, pretty, pretty
please, don't you ever, ever feel
Like you're less than, less than perfect
Pretty, pretty please, if you ever, ever feel
Like you're nothing, you are perfect to me
You are perfect to me

You're perfect, you're perfect to me
Pretty, pretty please if you ever, ever feel
Like you're less than, less than perfect
Pretty, pretty please if you ever, ever feel
Like you're nothing, you are fucking perfect to me

    MemoryThis song is... beautiful. I literally cried listening to it because it made me think of me, and so many of my friends that are so critical of themselves.

    I have one friend, especially. I think she's the most beautiful girl in the world. She's sweet, beautiful, and even though she fucks up sometimes just like all of us do, I think she's perfect... Yet, she puts herself down so much that I just want to shake her and switch views with her even for just a day so that she can see her how I see her and see how 'fucking perfect' she is..

    Pink is a brilliant and perfect woman herself. Everyone is perfect, in their own way...
    Everyone needs to see their own beauty

    (Yet, as I preach this, I still see myself way less them perfect. I'm not beautiful enough, I'm not nice enough, I'm not popular enough, I'm not skinny enough... I guess it's easier said than done..)

    Song MeaningPink's song is anti-depression and cutting. At one part in the song she say's done waiting for the critics because there everywhere. What Pink is saying here is that she's done changing herself to be perfect for the critics, because shes perfect to herself. She also says change the voices in your head... make them like you. She is saying have more self-estem because it doesn't matter who doesn't like you it only matters that you like you. Pink also says that the world is scared so she swallows the fear; the world is scared that no one likes how they look. She also says the only thing she should be drinking is an ice cold beer, as that is what SHE likes not what other people like. Pink says we try to hard to be perfect when we already are. I think about the chrous "dont you ever feel like your less than fuckin perfect, if you ever feel like your less than fuckin' perfect your fuckin' perfect to me." Pink is saying that we are all F**CKIN PERFECT TO HER. If any of you think you less that perfect, THATS NOT TRUE, your perfect the way you are.

    General CommentTo me this song is pretty straightforward. Self-doubt can greatly hinder one's success, but self-loathing can be deadly.

    I have always liked Pink, but didn't consider myself a fan until I heard this song. By the end of my first listen, I became one. It's a great emotional pick-me-up. This song did for my self-esteem what spinach did for Popeye. It's a song that anyone with a soul can relate to. She's talking about me, you, friends, family, lost loved ones...

    I was having a conversation with a friend recently about artists who use the music video to enhance a song's meaning. This one came up. There are videos that feature artists in random locations, loaded with special fx, choreography etc, (a good way to promote the track, don't get me wrong) then you have videos that actually tell a story and bring the song's meaning to a new level. I think this one is a great example. When I saw the video it gave me goosebumps. I have genuine gratitude for it.

    General CommentThis, I feel she is addressing to her husband Carey. The beginning verse talks about the mistakes she's made in the past with him ( during the separation ) and that it was hard to go through and recover from. " dug my way out, blood and fire ".

    The chorus is pretty self-explanitory, that he ( Carey ) is too critical of himself or puts the blame on himself for a lot of things. She's reassuring him that he really is, fuckin perfect for her.

    In the verse that starts with:
    "You're fuckin' perfect to me
    The world stares while I swallow the fear"
    I THINK ( not sure ) she is referring to herself trying to hide negative emotions.


    The song as a whole reminds me of something she said during an interview; " you took my heart and made it bigger. " [ about Carey ]

    One of my favorites of her's, but that doesn't say too much because I'm absolutely in love with everything she creates ;P

    General CommentI'm in love with this song.
    I thinbk that when people put themselves down and make bad decissions that they are still perfect and nothing can bring them down and they should bring themselves down

    MemoryI have had this song on repeat since I heard it. One of my sister's died 2 months ago and this song reminds me so much of her. She never felt good enough but to me she was perfect. Love and miss you Skye Baby
