Eu amo. Sou eu.


Sometimes I shave my legs and sometimes I don't.
Sometimes I comb my hair and sometimes I won't.
Depend on how the wind blows I might even paint my toes
It really just depends on whatever feels good in my soul

I'm not the average girl from your video and I ain't built like a supermodel
But I learned to love myself unconditionally because I am a queen
I'm not the average girl from your video
My worth is not determined by the price of my clothes
No matter what I'm wearing I will always be India Arie

When I look in the mirror and the only one there is me
Every freckle on my face is where it's supposed to be
And I know my creator didn't make no mistakes on me
My feet, my thighs, my lips, my eyes; I'm lovin' what I see

Am I less of a lady if I don't wear pantyhose?
My mama said a lady ain't what she wears but, what she knows
But, I've drawn a conclusion, it's all an illusion, confusion's the name of the game
A misconception, a vast deception, something's gotta change
Don't be offended this is all my opinion, ain't nothing that I'm sayin law
This is a true confession of a life learned lesson I was sent here to share with y'all
So get in where you fit in go on and shine, clear your mind, now's the time
Put your salt on the shelf, go on and love yourself
'Cuz everything's gonna be all right

Keep your fancy drinks and your expensive minks, I don't need that to have a good time
Keep your expensive car and your caviar, all I need is my guitar
Keep your Kristal and your pistol, I'd rather have a pretty piece of crystal
Don't need your silicon I prefer my own, What god gave me is just fine

I'm not the average girl from your video and I ain't built like a supermodel
But, I learned to love myself unconditionally because I am a queen
I'm not the average girl from your video
My worth is not determined by the price of my clothes
No matter what I'm wearing I will always be India Arie
