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

    My InterpretationMade a wrong turn, once or twice
    Dug my way out, blood and fire - everyone makes mistakes, as did she but she fixed them in any way possible even if it cost her
    Bad decisions, that's alright
    Welcome to my silly life - People make bad decisions all the time but it's okay because she's human and that's life like it or not (This could be referring to cutting, drinking, smoking, as well as eating disorders as well)

    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 - she's saying that even though she's mistreated, feels like she doesn't belong, no one understands her that she tells herself that no matter what she's a survivor and she'll keep surviving

    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 - no matter how you feel always remember that you are perfect no matter what

    You're so mean when you talk
    About yourself, you are wrong - you put yourself down constantly, always being negative
    Change the voices in your head
    Make them like you instead - change the way you think, try to love yourself

    So complicated, look how big you'll make it - think of who you'll become and what you can do in life
    Filled with so much hatred, such a tired game - self hatred fills you and it's a vicious cycle
    It's enough, I've done all I can think of
    Chased down all my demons, see you do the same - The person who is addressing this song is saying look at what I've done what I've overcome and try to 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 - everyone is scared everyone is insecure so why not overcome the fear
    The only thing I should be drinking is an ice cold beer - you should be doing what you want not what you've forced yourself to do
    So cool in lying and we try, try, try
    But we try too hard, it's a waste of my time - why spend your time on things that don't matter, be yourself and be happy with who you are you are unique so be proud

    Done looking for the critics 'cause they're everywhere - everyone criticizes you and everyone judges you so stop trying to impress them
    They don't like my jeans, they don't get my hair
    Change ourselves and we do it all the time - you change yourself to be society's version of 'perfect' when in reality it's the imperfections that are perfect
    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

    This song is anti-society. It's about a song addressed to someone else another girl who has cut, and has depression (and probably a whole other slew of stuff) and how even though she has done all of this and see's herself as pathetic, worthless, and thinks she should die, the person singing is telling her that she is perfect and try to live.
