bikini, stomach out, make up and me
I wear my stomach out to make you melt
wear my make up to grab your attention
for you to see me as the most beautiful girl you have ever seen
change my movement in order to make your eyes to be all over me
I wear all of this not because I love them
but because I just want to be told over and over again
how lovely I look and how sexy my body is
to get you to praise me
when I pass around that corner
behind that make up
that bikini
that stomach out
there is a girl
a lonely girl
a girl without confidence
everybody may think she has confidence
and is proud of herself
but in actual fact, that's not true
if she was confident and proud of herself
she would have never shown her self off
in order to be noticed
she would know that her beauty lies deep within her
in actual fact I did not want you to see my body
but wanted you to appreciate me for who I am
but I did that in a wrong way by selling my self cheap
bikini, stomach out, make up and me are simply a diskise
