We don't want to be treated like just another pretty flower

Just another fad

Just another girl

Each of us are completely different and special in our own way

And yes, none of us are perfect

Like everyone else, we have our flaws

So, when we try to show you who we really are through our actions

There's a 100% chance we're going to mess up

And when we try to tell you our feelings

Our words will come out all wrong

We know our love can't be perfect

But that won't stop us from trying

One thing that you have to realize, though

Is that we can't do it alone

You can't take our love for granted

You have to earn it, not just take it
