glossy books lyrics – bodyjar

there’s nothing that i could say
to make her change the way she thinks
page one is all she wants to be
it wasn’t a phase to her
it wasn’t a part of growing up
don’t compare yourself
to some 13 year old who needs help

the girl inside
you tried to hide
is all you needed to be
it’s only looks
you can’t compare
yourself to all those glossy books
i know you know what’s right
you need to see
the reason why you can’t pretend

you’ll never be satisfied
you’ll never be quite the way you want
don’t try to hide it
of course you’re so pretty now
and you did everything they said to do
you can be happy now
you’re beautiful and beautifully dead

the girl inside
you tried to hide
is all you needed to be
it’s only looks
you can’t compare
yourself to all those glossy books
i know you know what’s right
you need to see
the reason why you can’t pretend
i know you know what’s right
you need to see
the reason why you can’t pretend

and time unfolds the reasons
they don’t come
and life reveals the seasons
they don’t come yeah
time unfolds the reasons

the girl inside
you tried to hide
is all you needed to be
it’s only looks
you can’t compare
yourself to all those glossy books
time heals sometimes
time heals sometimes
then you know what’s right
