It’s a cover version today. A rather fantastic cover as well.
It’s a shame that you think you have to live this way
It’s a shame that you never have known
You’d travel so far and you’d have so much power
If only you would let the real you show
It’s a shame you think you have to live a lie
It’s a shame that you think you have to try
To please everyone else when you don’t even please yourself
Now isn’t that the worst kind of life?
When you look into the mirror, do you see someone you hate?
Why do you listen to what all those empty people say?
You don’t need them around, they just wanna keep you down
But there’s a better way
It’s a shame you think this is how it has to be
It’s a shame you make everything so hard
I wish you could see that you’re beautiful to me
And I think you’re perfect just the way you are
