Verse 1

I don't wanna be her.

I don't wanna look so damn pretty,

It's such a waste, it's such a pity,

If I give your heart a permanent scar.

Verse 2

I don't wanna be her.

I don't wanna be a monster hiding

Behind a veil of flawless glowing skin

If my heart is made of burnt tar.

Chorus

I'm not her, and I don't wanna be her.

And I don't want or need you, baby

To want or need me

The way you wanted or needed her, see,

I don't wanna be her.

Verse 3

I don't wanna be her.

I don't want the perfect attitude.

Cause if your intentions are not good

It doesn't matter how pretty you are.

Verse 4

I don't wanna be her.

I don't wanna snatch away

Your faith in love in a single day.

I don't wanna go way too far.

Chorus

I'm not her, and I don't wanna be her.

And I don't want or need you, baby

To want or need me

The way you wanted or needed her, see,

I don't wanna be her.

Bridge

I'm just me.

And I'm happy.

Underweight, but I carry the weight of responsibilities on my shoulder just fine.

Skinny, but I've got enough muscles to make it to the finish line.

And it doesn't matter whether or not I can make you mine.

I'll still just be me.

And I'll be happy.

Chorus

I'm not her, and I don't wanna be her.

And I don't want or need you, baby

To want or need me

The way you wanted or needed her, see,

I don't wanna be her.

Verse 5

I don't wanna be her.

I don't wanna look so damn pretty,

It's such a waste, it's such a pity,

If I give your heart a permanent scar.
