So Unsexy

Oh these little rejections how they add up quickly
One small sideways look and I feel so ungood
Somewhere along the way I think I gave you the power to make
Me feel the way I thought only my father could

Oh these little rejections how they seem so real to me
One forgotten birthday I'm all but cooked
How these little abandonments seem to sting so easily
I'm 13 again am I 13 for good?

I can feel so unsexy for someone so beautiful
So unloved for someone so fine
I can feel so boring for someone so interesting
So ignorant for someone of sound mind

Oh these little protections how they fail to serve me
One forgotten phone call and I'm deflated
Oh these little defenses how they fail to comfort me
Your hand pulling away and I'm devastated

When will you stop leaving baby?
When will I stop deserting baby?
When will I start staying with myself?

Oh these little projections how they keep springing from me
I jump my ship as I take it personally
Oh these little rejections how they disappear quickly
The moment I decide not to abandon me

"So Unsexy" Alanis Moriseettee

Glad you liked it.
I had the CD on when I was studying a few days ago and really connected with the lyrics.

Sometimes I do feel unsexy and boring while knowing that I'm beautiful and smart... And it doesn't have to be because of someone else like in the song, but mainly because of me.

Untill recently I had low self esteem, but now slowly I'm learning to see myself in an entire new way and this song is a real reflection of how I felt..
