Lyrics:

I know that I'm beautiful

Looking back on my life

Has it always been like a constant itch

Dry hands, heartache, these tired old joints

Butterflies in my stomach never seem to fly away

Do other hearts beat this hard

Are there other hands that shake this much

Sometimes I wonder if it's too late

Would things be better if I medicate

I've tried to hush the screaming snake

Comfort in my skin is all I crave

Please understand I'm doing the very best I can

I'm aware of my flaws, weaknesses

Yet here I am

I know that I'm beautiful but down inside

Sometimes I want to abandon life

Give up, quit, run and hide

A battle with my mind that I have to win

This downward spiral will not begin

That's what it's like in my skin

Sometimes I wonder

Was I too withdrawn to cry when I was born

Was I eloquent, did I do it right

Was my first breath relaxed or tense

In my life I've learned the art of suppression, smile like a mannequin

Here I am, and you can't tell if I'm fine or panicking

When did this become my life

Closing my door is the day's highlight

I feel I've become a slave

Comfort in my skin is all I crave

Please understand I'm doing the very best I can

I'm aware of my flaws, weaknesses

Yet here I am

I know that I'm beautiful but down inside

Sometimes I want to abandon life

Give up, quit, run and hide

A battle with my mind that I have to win

This downward spiral will not begin

That's what it's like in my skin

I know that I'm beautiful but down inside

Sometimes I want to abandon life

Give up, quit, run and hide

A battle with my mind that I have to win

This downward spiral will not begin

That's what it's like in my skin
