Looking at broken mirror
I see the pieces of my face on the floor
What's it gonna take not to feel like this anymore? (anymore?)
Living for the outside but you're always lonely
Don't know who you are
I can make 'em soft or wild
Doesn't take much to lose yourself (keep sayin')

Perfect girls ain't real
They hide who they are inside
Now, perfect girls ain't real
They live a lie
But it's always on your mind
'Cause you're all lying all the time
Know that perfect girls ain't real

Gotta learn to love yourself
Gotta learn to love yourself
Inside and out

Playing a perfect role
Crying deep inside, hoping nobody knows
Tryna keep it together
House of cards, don't fall (no, the cards don't fall)
Only the dieter, you can starve yourself
But you're still looking at everybody else
Guess it comes down to loving myself (myself)

Perfect girls ain't real
They hide who they are inside
Now, perfect girls ain't real
They live a lie
But it's always on your mind
'Cause you're all lying all the time
Know that perfect girls ain't real

Gotta learn to love yourself
Gotta learn to love yourself
Inside and out

Alone in the daytime
Raging thoughts going through your mind
Wishing you had her life
Wishing you was on the other side
But you are beautiful inside
Don't you let 'em steal your pride
You should learn to live your life for yourself
No one else, yeah

Perfect girls ain't real
They hide who they are inside
Now, perfect girls ain't real
They live a lie
But it's always on your mind
'Cause you're all lying all the time
Know that perfect girls ain't real

Gotta learn to love yourself (gotta learn to love, learn to love, learn to love)
Gotta learn to love yourself
Inside and out (inside and out, inside and out)
