Lyrics:

Born into misfortune, that dirtied child,
You said to them, “you’re pretty”
To my eyes, watching from nearby,
They looked very ugly

Taking innocent recreation in the suffocating greenhouse,
A frail child being taken advantage of
With too much happiness to handle, my morals can be selective;
I quietly concealed my pity

Stroking their head, and just telling them “good kid” –
Look at me with the gaze you give to them…

To be like you, so kind;
How nice it’d be if I’d lived that way…

The sight of someone being unloved and laughed at,
I felt relief about on the other side of a window
The one getting singled out and left behind;
I’m glad that wasn’t me

Giving harsh beatings, scolding “bad kid” –
I’m different from them, so heal me…

To be like you, so kind;
How nice it’d be if I’d lived that way…

I want to be kind, I want to be just,
I want to be pretty, just like you…

I want to be kind, I want to be just,
I want to be pretty, just like you…
