Look in my eyes
Tell me what you see
Do you see perfection in me?
To you, do I look complete?

Now take one more look pass my celebrity
That's where you'll find the real me
To you, do I still look complete?

I got every material thing I could ever need
I got the love from my fans that adore me
And I'm grateful
And I thank you so very much

But my love for myself is lacking a little bit
(Just a little bit)
I can admit that I'm working on me
Staying faithful and what I'm tryna say is

Just like you sometimes I get down
(I get down)
Sometimes I just wanna cry
(I just wanna cry)
Sometimes I get depressed

And just like me, tryna be complete
(Tryna be complete)
Just understand we're all just a work in progress

Life can be difficult
No one promised that it would be
(No one promised it would be)
Sunshine all the time, easy
Some pain is guaranteed

But it ain't impossible
(Not impossible)
You can find the joy, you see
Took me a while but I did finally
Open your eyes and you will see

I'm just like you sometimes I get down
Sometimes I just wanna cry
Sometimes I get depressed
(So depressed)

Just like me, tryna be complete
(Just tryna be complete)
Just understand we're all just a work in progress

Anybody knowing what it is to struggle
Never ever running in the face of trouble
Say I'm with you
(I'm with you)
I feel you
(I feel you)
I'm with you

Just like you sometimes I fall but don't we all
Baby, I feel your pain
We're all the same, we're all the same
Oh, I am just like you

Sometimes I get down
Sometimes I just wanna cry
Sometimes I get depressed

Oh, just like me
(Just like me)
Tryna be complete
(Just tryna be complete)
Just understand we're all just a work in progress
(Just understand we're all a work in progress)

Just like you sometimes I get down
Sometimes I just wanna cry
Sometimes I get depressed
(Can you feel me, can you hear me?)

Just like me, tryna be complete
(I am, I am, I'm just like you)
Just understand we're all just a work in progress
