The Ultimate Love Song

Made a wrong turn
Once or twice
Dug my way out
Blood and fire
Bad decisions
That’s alright
Welcome to my silly life
Mistreated, misplaced, missundaztood
Miss “no way it’s all good”
It didn’t slow me down
Mistaken
Always second guessing
Underestimated
Look, I’m still around…
Pretty, pretty please
Don’t you ever, ever feel
Like your less than
Fuckin’ perfect
Pretty, pretty please
If you ever, ever feel
Like your nothing
You’re fuckin’ perfect to me
You’re so mean
When you talk
About yourself
You are wrong
Change the voices
In your head
Make them like you
Instead
So complicated
Look how big you’ll make it
Filled with so much hatred
Such a tired game

It’s enough
I’ve done all I can think of
Chased down all my demons
see you same
Pretty, pretty please
Don’t you ever, ever feel
Like your less than
Fuckin’ perfect
Pretty, pretty please
If you ever, ever feel
Like your nothing
You’re fuckin’ perfect to me
The world stares while I swallow the fear
The only thing I should be drinking is an ice cold beer
So cool in lying and I tried tried
But we try too hard, it’s a waste of my time
Done looking for the critics, cuz they’re everywhere
They don’t like my genes, they don’t get my hair
Stringe ourselves and we do it all the time
Why do we do that?
Why do I do that?
Why do I do that?
Ooh, pretty pretty pretty,
Pretty pretty please don’t you ever ever feel
Like you’re less then, fuckin’ perfect
Pretty pretty please if you ever ever feel
Like you’re nothing you’re fuckin’ perfect, to me
You’re perfect
You’re perfect
Pretty, pretty please don’t you ever ever feel like you’re less then, fucking perfect
Pretty, pretty please if you ever ever feel like you’re nothing you’re fucking perfect to me

Sara Bareilles in Tokyo

2011.05.17

Man, she was awesome live. That was a really, really great show. I enjoyed it even more than the Maroon 5 concert we went to the night before this one. I mean, she sang Cee Lo Green’s Fuck You song with Gonna Get Over You. How more awesome can you get?

Too bad we weren’t allowed to take pictures. The only thing that I brought back as a proof of meeting her is this:

Cool huh?

Uncharted

Ben Folds, Adam Levine, Pharrell, Tegan And Sara, Vanessa Carlton, Ryan Tedder, Josh Groban, Ingrid Michaelson, and a host of others in this fcuking awesome DIY-style vid.

I can’t believe I’m going to see her perform in May, OMG!
