This outfit compliments my figure
That shirt makes you look fat
I think these shoes are fabulous
Everyone has a pair of those.

I’ll be with him forever
You won’t even live that long
I think he really loves me
You are so naïve.

My mom wants me in too early
She knows what’s best
I can’t wait until I make my own decisions
Enjoy your youth while you can.

My grades are sucking big time
You do the best you can
I’m still in the C range
You’re doing better each MP.

I have a lot of friends
Friends wouldn’t have made you do that
I tell my best friend everything
She tells everyone else.

I’m not as pretty as I want to be
Beauty is more than skin deep
I need my eyeliner to survive
You look best when you first wake up.

I think I like myself, flaws and all
I told you you were perfect just how you are
I should really start listening to you
I have been trying to tell you that.
