lyrics

VERSE 1
I get caught up in all that I'm not
I don't know how to be something I want

If you can tear down this messed up facade
Promise me you'll love me and all my flaws

CHORUS
I'm trying to be all that I want to be
Do what it takes to make myself happy

I'll let you see the good if you know me
I'll let you see the bad if you love me

What you don't know is
Only I know ugly

What you don't know is
Only I know ugly

VERSE 2
I can't always control what I say
I'm so afraid that I'll scare you away

Will you stand by me, even if it hurts?
If I push you away, oh, will you return?

CHORUS
I'm trying to be all that I want to be
Do what it takes to make myself happy

I'll let you see the good if you know me
I'll let you see the bad if you love me

What you don't know is
Only I know ugly

What you don't know is
Only I know ugly

BRIDGE
I hope you don't leave, now that you know
I've got demons that I need to let go

CHORUS
I'm trying to be all that I want to be, yeah
Do what it takes to make myself happy, whoa

I'll let you see the good if you know me
I'll let you see the bad if you love me

What you don't know is
Only I know ugly

What you don't know is
Only I know ugly
