lyrics

You Don’t Owe The World Pretty
(Bella Hardy)


Little girls are born into a world where their bodies are a tool to please 
Your face and every action, every placement of a word or leg to be approved 
You’ll learn to do you best, to score top marks in every test 
And all regardless of the cost 
 
(They say) It takes a village, if that’s true 
Then this is what I’ll teach to you 
 
You don’t owe the world pretty 
You don’t owe anyone perfect 
You just do what you can, and 
You don’t owe the world pretty 
 
Little one you’re going to need and little one you’re going to bleed 
And you’ll be taught that it’s a shame, to hide the pain and do whatever keeps you most appealing 
You’ll learn to bear disgrace, to keep the peace and know your place 
But darling, you can set your own pace 

(They say) I wish I’d known what I know now 
I’ll pass it on to you somehow 
 
You don’t owe the world pretty 
You don’t owe anyone perfect 
You just do what you can, and 
You don’t owe the world pretty 
 
If you can make and shape an outline you can call your own, your home 
Then all you need to build this thing, no armored prince, no diamond ring 
Just you 
 
You don’t owe the world pretty 
You don’t owe anyone perfect 
You just do what you can, and 
You don’t owe the world pretty
