Lyrics

You don't have to be a mannequin, so don't you even try,

Keep in mind that old cliche, 'bout the beholder's eyes,

Here's pearl of wisdom that I'd like you to wear,

If you know where you wanna be, then you're halfway there,

  And I wish that you could see yourself, the way that I see you,

  How I wish that you could see yourself, you'd appreciate the view,

 

So just throw away those magazines, that tell you what to do,

They take away your self-esteem, and sell it back to you,

Forget about the photographs and forget about the words,

And forget those plastic dollies with the air-brushed curves,

  And I wish that you could see yourself, the way that I see you,

  How I wish that you could see yourself, you'd appreciate the view,

   

    See yourself, and you can choose the angle,

    Free yourself, from all that has entangled you,

 

When I look at you I have to say, there's nothing I would change,

Nothing I would alter, no, nothing rearranged,

You can't measure up to their yardstick when it's 22 miles long,

So don't even waste your time trying to right their wrong,

  And I wish that you could see yourself, the way that I see you,

  How I wish that you could see yourself, you'd appreciate the view,

  Oh I wish that you could see yourself, the way that I see you,

  How I wish that you could see yourself, you'd appreciate the view.
