"Just A Little" as written by Maria Mena and Arvid Solvang....
Just a little bit stronger
Just a little bit wiser
Just a little less needy

And maybe I'd get there...

Just a little bit pretty
Just a little more aware
Just a little bit thinner

And maybe I'd get there...

Clearly, clearly I remember
Hiking up my skirt
Asking for your time

Clearly, clearly I remember
Nervous if ever confronted
And questioning myself

Oh perhaps, perhaps if I got better
Perhaps if I challenged myself
Perhaps if I was

Just a little bit stronger
Just a little bit wiser
Just a little less needy

And maybe I'd get there...

Just a little bit pretty
Just a little more aware
Just a little bit thinner

And maybe I'd get there...

Clearly, clearly I remember
Pulling up my shirt
Staring blank ahead

Clearly, clearly I remember
Days of useless crying
Almost feeling dead

Oh perhaps, perhaps if I was smaller
Perhaps, I could control myself
Perhaps if I was

Just a little bit stronger
Just a little bit wiser
Just a little less needy

And maybe I'd get there...

Just a little bit pretty
Just a little more aware
Just a little bit thinner

And maybe I'd get there...

Just a little bit stronger
Just a little bit wiser
Just a little less needy

And maybe I'd get there...

Just a little bit pretty
Just a little more aware
Just a little bit thinner

And maybe I'd get there...

oooooaaaah oooooaaahhh
ooooaaaah oaaa'aaah

Just a little bit pretty
Just a little more aware
Just a little bit thinner

And maybe I'd get there...

    General CommentAll I can think is EATING DISORDER.

    "Just a little bit pretty
    Just a little more aware
    Just a little bit thinner
    And maybe I'd get there" Obvious. Association of thinness with happiness.

    "clearly, clearly I remember
    Hiking up my skirt
    And asking for your time" - Asking for help?

    "Clearly, clearly I remember
    Nervous if ever confronted
    And questioning myself" - Hiding it.

    "Oh perhaps, perhaps if I got better
    Perhaps if I challenged myself" - Getting better (as in getting rid of it) vs. getting better at the eating disorder

    "Clearly, clearly I remember
    Pulling up my shirt
    And staring blank ahead" - Studying your body in the mirror.

    "Clearly, clearly I remember
    Days of useless crying
    And almost feeling dead" - The way it drains the life from you, physically and mentally.

    "Oh perhaps, perhaps if I was smaller
    Perhaps I could control myself.." Again, smaller/thinner associated with happiness.

    Links to relationships and love could also be a correct interpretation, this is just how I read it.
