Verse 1

Every girl deserves a man like you-

Someone who would find her more beautiful than the rest,

Because your eyes are veiled by love,

You see from your heart, you're not looking at just a pretty face.

Chorus

His words made me compare myself to her for days on end.

My self-esteem was hurt so bad, I thought it would never mend.

I thought I'd never be comfortable in my skin again.

And then?

You know how some things in life are too good to be true?

You entered that territory the moment you said,

"The world doesn't need two hers, but it needs one you."

Verse 2

I say she's so athletic, and so pretty.

You say I'm pretty too, and smart, and generous and kind.

I say she's graceful, while I'm a klutz.

And you say I'm adorable, so it works out for me just fine.

Chorus

His words made me compare myself to her for days on end.

My self-esteem was hurt so bad, I thought it would never mend.

I thought I'd never be comfortable in my skin again.

And then?

You know how some things in life are too good to be true?

You entered that territory the moment you said,

"The world doesn't need two hers, but it needs one you."

Bridge

He shied away from holding my hand.

But you, you're a perfect gentleman.

You'd show me off to the world, you're proud of me.

And I wanna tell you, baby-

The world needs more men like you,

The world doesn't need another him,

And I need the one you.

Chorus

His words made me compare myself to her for days on end.

My self-esteem was hurt so bad, I thought it would never mend.

I thought I'd never be comfortable in my skin again.

And then?

You know how some things in life are too good to be true?

You entered that territory the moment you said,

"The world doesn't need two hers, but it needs one you."
