Music Monday: My Distorted Reflection by Upon A Burning Body #TheTattoedBookGeek #MyDistortedReflection #Rock #Metal #Lyrics #Favourite #Identity

Music Monday is a meme that was created by Drew from The Tattooed Book Geek. You pick a song and/or video and share it on Monday. Upon A Burning Body you say? I know what you’re thinking but this song is drastically different from their other offerings. I love this song because it confronts imperfection and basically tells it to f**k off. I have had plenty of image problems over the years and I have to say that this song is more than a warm hug. Check it out and tell me what you think!

My Distorted Reflection by Upon A Burning Body (from Sumerian 2017)

Lyrics – My Distorted Reflection

See me staring back in the mirror
You don’t have to try so hard
Suddenly life is much clearer
You don’t have to change a thing

I’m not perfect and that’s okay with me
I’m not perfect and that’s okay

And I don’t care what they think of me
‘Cause I’m not ashamed
Of the person I am today
I want you to see the happiest that I’ll ever be
Is just being myself

Because I’m not perfect and that’s okay with me
I’m not perfect and that’s okay (And that’s okay)

Over and over, I pay the cost of playing this game
What can I do to escape?
I will never be the man I want to be
If I can’t learn from my mistakes

I’m not perfect and that’s okay with me
I’m not perfect and that’s okay (And that’s okay)
I’m not perfect and that’s okay (I’m not perfect!)
I’m not perfect and that’s okay (I’m not perfect!)

Songwriters: Danny Leal / Ruben Alvarez / Tito Felix

Thanks for coming by to check out another soppy song from my stellar music taste! I am really enjoying doing these posts as they allow me to talk about music which is something I would like to do so much more. Maybe I will start doing music reviews… Please pop back next week for another edition of Music Monday here on Always Trust In Books.
