I said, "that boy's handsome"
and a little bit of me wanted to be beautiful-
Carrie said, "It's hard to look in the mirror these days when everyone has everything you'd rather be."
There's just something about his smile He looks so nice,
I wish I had friends like that
They'd always be there for me, I wouldn't look bad
They wouldn't talk behind my back.

    General Commenti dont think chris is talking bisexually, i think he is saying, "if he was beautiful, he wouldn't have to worry about so much stuff". or i think you coudl take it as carrie saying all that stuff and saying if she was beautiful, people wouldnt talk behind her back and all that. either way its a great song, i just dont agree about the bisexuality

    General Comment"its hard to look in the morror these days when everyone has eveything you'd rather be"
    is the best line. He's not talking about bisexuality he's just saying maybe if he was "beautiful" then he'd have a lot of friends and they wouldn't talk behind his back and all of that other drama. Maybe he's just saying it's easier being beautiful...beauty is power.

    General Commentgreat song. this obvioulsly is a side reference to chris' problems with self image. if you dont believe me pick up an issue of alternative press.

    General Comment"Please God, don't let it be true?" What... is like his pure straightness going to increase your chances of screwing him by THAT much? I don't believe the song has anything to do with bisexuality, by the way.

    General Commentwhat is this about him being bisexual? i think hes talking about how if he was beautiful then hed have friends that wouldnt talk behind his back and love him. and besides i agree with 'watchthefireworks' on the whole screwing thing. you cant have him babe. sorry. and besides i just think thats really shallow of you to think that about this song. this song has so much meaning.
