Excellent
Not yet exceptional. When the exceptional rating is reached this is highlighted
Breast cancer and the man who was supposed to love her

Undress Me

Do you recognize me?
I'm the girl with scars you can't see
You might think they are on my little heart,
But the truth is, they are right on me

See, there was a day that I went in to love myself
Found out that it wasn't true
All my worst thoughts were there for me to see
Now I am a scared Barbie doll that no one knows is really me

So don't undress me because it might not be what you really want to see
Unless you are enough to handle the real me

It might be okay at first glance
But there will come a time when you might turn away
All Barbie wants to do is dance,
With the real girl inside of me

So don't undress me because it might not be what you really want to see
Unless you are enough to handle the real me

I've got the camouflage to fool you all day
But once night falls upon, then the real me can't be hidden away
So do you really still like my personality?
How about the sparkle in my eyes?
Do you really want to turn on me?

Because...if you undress me you might not like what you see,

The day I had to have them taken off, really wasn't that tough
I like the Barbie doll I see now
Because she has more fight than she knew how
I am going to fight until I win for the love I have within

So don't undress me because it might not be what you really want to see
Unless you are enough to handle the real me

It takes a special kind of Ken to handle what's within,
So don't undress me because it might not be what you really want to see
Unless you are enough to handle the real me
