Picture is taken from :
"(Loving Me) Shopping"
I've been wanting to go shopping
For a looong time
But I didn't dare to go to the stores
Cause I feel embarassed
What if I couldn't find anything that fits me
Because my body ain't as thin as a model
I pass those stores every afternoon
Looking straight to where I'm heading
Without taking a glance at the clothes that are in
I take a long look in front of the mirror
Examining my reflections
And analyzing my feelings
There's a little fat here
And a little fat there
That makes me round and round everywhere I see
At first I'm feeling sad
And I really want to cry
I almost shed a tear but then I suddenly realize
Why am I sad?
Why should I cry?
So what if I'm not like any other?
I've been with me all of my life
I've been loving myself all of these times
So why should I change the way I feel now?
For the first time I feel so relief
I even sleep longer than usual
And feel so fresh when I wake up the next morning
Today I want to do something different
Before going home I'm gonna have one stop
At the fashion store
I'm gonna search and search
Until I find one
The very one that flatters my look
I'm gonna wrap it with the nicest paper
And put a lovely pinkie bow on top
With some sweet little card I write myself
"Thanks for always being around," I shall start
"And for loving me still no matter what"
I sign the card and put a little heart
With a smile on my face
I'm heading back home
With a nicely wrapped present just for myself
