Video Lyrics - India.Arie

Review The Song (19)



Sometimes I shave my legs and sometimes I don't
Sometimes I comb my hair and sometimes I won't
Depend on how the wind blows I might even paint my toes
It really just depends on whatever feels good in my soul

I'm not the average girl from your video
and I ain't built like a supermodel
But, I learned to love myself unconditionally
Because I am a queen
I'm not the average girl from your video
My worth is not determined by the price of my clothes
No matter what I'm wearing I will always be the india arie

When I look in the mirror and the only one there is me
Every freckle on my face is where it's supposed to be
And I know our creator didn't make no mistakes on me
My feet, my thighs, my lips, my eyes; I'm lovin' what I see

I'm not the average girl from your video
sponsored links
and I ain't built like a supermodel
But, I learned to love myself unconditionally
Because I am a queen
I'm not the average girl from your video
My worth is not determined by the price of my clothes
No matter what I'm wearing I will always be the
india arie

Am I less of a lady if I don't wear pantyhose?
My mama said a lady ain't what she wears but, what she knows
But, I've drawn a conclusion, it's all an illusion, confusion's the name of the
game
A misconception, a vast deception
Something's gotta change
but,Don't be offended this is all my opinion
ain't nothing that I'm sayin law
This is a true confession of a life learned lesson I was sent here to share with
y'all
So get in where you fit in go on and shine
Clear your mind, now's the time
Put your salt on the shelf
Go on and love yourself
'Cuz everything's gonna be all right

I'm not the average girl from your video
and I ain't built like a supermodel
But, I Learned to love myself unconditionally
Because I am a queen
I'm not the average girl from your video
My worth is not determined by the price of my clothes
No matter what I'm wearing I will always be the india arie

Keep your fancy drinks and your expensive minks
I don't need that to have a good time
Keep your expensive car and your caviar
All I need is my guitar
Keep your Kristal and your pistol
I'd rather have a pretty piece of crystal
Don't need your silicone I prefer my own
What God gave me is just fine

I'm not the average girl from your video
and I ain't built like a supermodel
But, I learned to love myself unconditionally
Because I am a queen
I'm not the average girl from your video
My worth is not determined by the price of my clothes
No matter what I'm wearing I will always be india arie

I cannot find words to thank you enough. | Reviewer: Carolyn | 4/23/12

I cannot find words to thank you enough Ms Arie. I'm turning 15 this year, and struggling with bulimia and depression, but when I heard this song, it made me stop and think. Why does it matter what people say. I'm beautiful just the way I am. Because I am a queen. So I don't have the words to express my gratitude to you. This song has changed my life.

My Inspiration! | Reviewer: Boikano Phahle | 12/26/11

It was 3 months ago (September 2011) when I fell in love with you and your music. I've known 'Brown Skin and Video' from when I was a kid but didn't know who exactly sang the songs. ... It was our Dance Practical- Rehearsals at school when a friend was using one of your songs for her choreography that I decided I am going to be your fan . Your voice sounded so familiar that I asked who the artist was. I was showed the cover of your album and I quickly googled- India Arie, the name I saw first. I read about you and your career. I was so inspired and motivated by what I read and downloaded a lot of your pictures and music. The picture that I love best is the one where you are wearing all white and carrying your Guitar. ... I love you India for who you are and for the wonderful music you are giving to the world. You are a true inspiration to most teengagers, like you are to me as I am one. You have given me a great platform which I am going to work on as a Young- Growng- Artist. ... 'Promise' has taught me to understand my self as a young, black, gifted woman. I can now face the world with courage, wisdom and confidence knowing that I am beautiful in my own, fearfully made self. ... Please do come to South Africa. It would be a great honour to go to a well , respectable and beautiful concert of an Artist like you. ... You are my daily bread. ... ''4rm Boikano Phahle Wako Mzansi''

Thank You India.Arie | Reviewer: Kaitlyn | 8/6/11

For the longest time I thought I wasn't good enough until I put my iPod on shuffle and it went to this song. I listened to it over and over again. I felt beautiful and perfect in my own skin for the first time in ages. I never skip past your song, even when I'm feeling sad, because your song always cheers me up. I dance around my room every time I hear it. Your song prompted me to find other songs that declare that you are beautiful in your own skin. Now I have an entire playlist dedicated to such songs. Thank You.

I am beautiful after all...... | Reviewer: Jordie | 3/23/11

Thanks so much for your music Ms.Arie ! People always tell me that I need to update my ipod with more recent songs, truth is I need to update it with more of your music. Im 15 everyone thinks Im beautiful and tells me everyday. But I dont feel it until I play this song. Thanks you really show you care.
Thanks Ily Jordan :)

the truth | Reviewer: lati | 9/25/10

Wow, this song made me really get comfortable in my skin. it reminded me that this is the only body I'm ever gonna have so might as well accept its flaws and embrace its beauty and everything i like about it. I have taken india and made her a part of my life, she's like my mom (my other mother). To a fifteen year old like me your music is like a guide to the perfect teendhood.

this song is my personal therapy | Reviewer: sane | 6/7/10

INDIA ARIE is the best! | Reviewer: Anonymous | 5/11/10

i am also 11 yrs old but did not have the benefit of knowing about India Arie until some time ago. I was still mourning the loss of my all time favorite singer, the KOP, and was singing songs that only put women down, like In My Head, then my mother showed me some videos of India Arie and I was immediately taken. Thank You India Arie!
ps. Great name by the way

Wow!! | Reviewer: Taylor | 3/31/10

"A lady ain't what she wears, but what she knows."

This stood out to me the most. A guy looks at a girl and sees a big butt and chest and can automatically think "what a woman," when in reality, she's got the mind of a 1 year old. I mean, I see 12 year olds walking around looking like Beyonce, but does that make them any smarter? No.

Your mother is very wise and so are you. I'm very proud of you.

luv ya | Reviewer: Keturah | 9/10/09

Njeris song! | Reviewer: Njeri | 7/17/09

THE TRUTH BETOLD | Reviewer: Child of GOD | 8/15/08

I just want to mention that INDIA is truly an inspiration. One of many gifts from heaven. Unlike me, she has embraced her heart and is shining like the LORD wants us to. Kudos India, we've never met in the physical, but I feel like I've known you all my life. Keep LOVE alive !!! from one of many sista's xoxoxoxo
