Cruel Tricks

Tolled you can be anything
But all you got is
What you have been given
What you have been given

Life can play cruel tricks
It can play cruel tricks
Give you real narrow feet
Give you a skinny wast

Tolled you’re not good enough
But all you got is
What you have been given
What you have been given

You wanna change your hair
You wanna more smother face
Not happy in your body
Not happy in your skin

Tolled you’re not good enough
But all you got is
What you have been given
What you have been given

Afraid they’ll see again that
You’re different so you again
Hide your scares inside you
Hide your scares inside you

Life can play cruel tricks
It can play cruel tricks
Give you real narrow feet
Give you a skinny wast

You wanna change your hair
You wanna more smother face
Not happy in your body
Not happy in your skin
