You said you wanted a natural beauty kind of girl

I threw out all my make-up

You said you wanted a modest girl

I wore long sleeves and jeans

You said you wanted a neutral haired girl

I left it a sunkissed, rusty brown

You said you wanted a thick girl

I stopped exercising

You said you wanted a chill girl

I looked away when you flirted with others

You said you wanted a smart girl

I fought to keep high A's

You said you didn't like my friends

I told them to fuck off

You said you wanted me all to yourself

I never said a word to my family

You said you wanted a naughty girl

I gave myself to you

You said what you wanted

And that's what, who, I became

Yet you said it wasn't good enough

As I bowed down my head in shame

I tried really hard though

Has that ever crossed your mind?

I tried really hard 

And all that's left to show what I did for you

Is your menacing glare you give me

And my eyes glued to the floor

My cousins threatening to bust down your door

And you know what?

I did try

I tried really hard
