I have a song in my head that you tube won't let me enbed.


I wish i could tie you up in my shoes
Make you feel unpretty too
I was told I was beautiful
But what does that mean to you
Look into the mirror who's inside there
The one with the long hair
Same old me again today (yeah)


My outsides are cool
My insides are blue
Every time I think i'm through
It's because of you
I've tried different ways
But it's all the same
At the end of the day
I have my self to blame
I'm just trippin

Chorus:
You can buy your hair if it won't grow
You can fix your nose if he says so
You can buy all the make-up
That MAC can make
But if you can't look inside you
Find out who am I too
Be in a position to make me feel
So damn unpretty
I'll make you feel unpretty to

Never insecure until I met you
Now I'm bein stupid
I used to be so cute to me
Just a little bit skinny
Why do I look to all these things
To keep you happy
Maybe get rid of you
And then i'll get back to me (hey)

My outsides looks cool
My insides are blue
Everytime I think I'm through
It's because of you
I've tried different ways
But it's all the same
At the end of the day
I have myself to blame
Keep on trippin


You can buy your hair if it won't grow
You can fix your nose if he says so
You can buy all the make-up
That MAC can make
But if you can look inside you
Find out who am I too
Be in a position to make me feel
So damn unpretty


You can buy your hair if it won't grow
You can fix your nose if he says so
You can buy all the make-up
That MAC can make
But if you can look inside you
Find out who am I too
Be in a position to make me feel
So damn unpretty
I'll make you feel unpretty to(i'll make u feel unpretty too)


Oh oh oh oh oh
Oh oh oh oh oh (oh)
Oh oh oh oh oh
Oh oh oh oh oh (oh)


You can buy your hair if it won't grow
You can fix your nose if he says so
You can buy all the make-up
That MAC can make
But if you can look inside you
Find out who am I too
Be in a position to make me feel
So damn unpretty


You can buy your hair if it won't grow
You can fix your nose if he says so
You can buy all the make-up
That MAC can make
But if you can look inside you
Find out who am I too
Be in a position to make me feel
So damn unpretty
I'll make you feel unpretty to





And you ask me what I want this year
And I try to make this kind and clear
Just a chance that maybe we'll find better days
'cause I don't need boxes wrapped in strings
And desire and love and empty things
Just a chance that maybe we'll find better days

So take these words
And sing out loud
'cause everyone is forgiven now
'cause tonight's the night the world begins again

And it's someplace simple where we could live
And something only you can give
And that's faith and trust and peace while we're alive
And the one poor child that saved this world
And there's 10 million more who probably could
If we all just stopped and said a prayer for them

So take these words
And sing out loud
'cause everyone is forgiven now
'cause tonight's the night the world begins again

I wish everyone was loved tonight
And somehow stop this endless fight
Just a chance that maybe we'll find better days

So take these words
And sing out loud
'cause everyone is forgiven now
'cause tonight's the night the world begins again
'cause tonight's the night the world begins again


For the former, I've always liked TLC, with the exceptions of "Waterfalls" and "No scrubs". (Those I dislike mainly due to overplaying at release. Kind of like Goo Goo dolls' "Name", I heard them way too often.) It's odd, since I'm normally not an R&B person, but I always kind of like them. Anyway, T-Boz wrote a song fro FanMail called "Unpretty" which has always resonated with me. Maybe just because I've spent most of my life feeling unattractive.

The second is "Better Days" by the Goo Goo Dolls. Again, a good song by a band I generally don't like much. I mean, I like a few songs by them, but they'll be forever judged by "Name", which was played on every fucking station in Dayton for months. Not to mention MTV and Vh1.

I'd post "Everything" by Lifehouse here too, but a) it make me cry when I hear it b) YouTube only has homemade videos of it, and c) I'm trying not to go overboard with YouTube posts like I normally do.

I agree. And they ll were on my playlist while I was running errands.

Probably got strange stares from singing along.

could be worse, "I will survive" came on while I was on my way to work. I rather imagine passing cars wondered why I was discoing down Glenstone ave:)
