Freckles

I used to care so much about what others think about
I almost didn't have a thought of my own
The slightest remark would make me embark
On a journey of self-doubt but that was a while ago

This girl has got stronger and if I knew then what I know now
I would have told myself don't worry any longer, it's okay

'Cause a face without freckles is like a sky without the stars
Why waste a second not loving who you are
Those little imperfections make you beautiful, lovable, valuable
They show your personality inside your heart reflecting who you are

I wondered if I could trade my body with somebody else in magazines
With the whole world fall at my feet I felt darn worthy
And would blame my failures on the ugliness I could see
When the mirror looked at me

Sometimes I still feel like that little girl who doesn't belong in her own world
But I'm getting better and reminding myself

That a face without freckles is like a sky without the stars
Why waste a second not loving who you are
Those little imperfections make you beautiful, lovable, valuable
They show your personality inside your heart reflecting who you are

Natasha Bedingfield from her album Pocketful of Sunshine...
