From time to time a song just reaches out to me and says “This one’s about you.” I’m sure that happens to everyone, right?

Well, the one for today was Imperfection by Saving Jane. The lyrics are below.

My hair’s a wreck
Mascara runs
My feet get dirty and my skin burns in the sun
My lips, they bleed
But I still sing my songs
Takes me a minute to admit it when I’m wrong

Pretty is as pretty does, but pretty’s not my thing…

This is what you get
This is who I am
Take me now or leave me
Any way you can
Sometimes I trip and fall
But I know where I stand
If you’re thinking about changing my direction,
Don’t mess with imperfection

My back is weak
But my will is true
Got good intentions but I never follow through
And I say too much
Don’t know when to leave
In case you’re looking, that’s my heart there on my sleeve

Ego trips and stupid slipups, I’m a mess but…

Chorus

Scratched and bruised, a little used, but baby I work fine
You might call me damaged goods, but I’m one of a kind

My hair’s a wreck
No, I’m not perfect but I’m not the only one…
