lyrics

What you lacked in wisdom
You made up for in insecurities
And you imparted them all to me

Spent your time staring into the mirror
You were never enough
At least, that’s what you’d see
And now the mirror’s my worst enemy

It’s hard to change the way we see ourselves
Caught up in others’ expectations
Caught up in others’ expectations
It’s hard to love ourselves
If we don’t know what love looks like
Don’t know what love looks like

Blind to what was really true
Blind to all but what that reflection showed you
Deaf to what was really true
Deaf to all but the memories of what he told you

Fight the voices in your mind
Learn to love yourself
Look through new eyes
See the beauty inside

Look through new eyes
See the beauty inside
