Jessie J: Who You Are Meaning

Song Released: 2010


Who You Are Lyrics

(Verse)
I stare at my reflection in the mirror,
Why am I doing this to myself?
Losing my mind on a tiny error,
I nearly left the real me, on the shelf.

(chorus)
To lose who you are,
In the blur of the stars,
Seeing is...

    She's just staring in the mirror watching herself suffering and wondering why she's acting like that, why she's doing that to herself, being droven crazy by every tiny mistake that she makes. "I nearly leave the real me on the shelf" - she's been about to change and turn into someone she's not actually, so she realises how close she's been to mess up.
    Chorus:
    She wants to transmit young people to not stop being the way they want to, no matter how difficult things are and how much you have to try. Seeing things have the consequence of disappointment sometimes,but dreaming you can do things means that you can actually get them by working hard on it. "It's okay not to be okay" - she literally means that it correct to not be as the rest of the people in the world, because we're all different in a different way.

    love this song, it's extremely relevant in today's youth and society, and being true to who you are and not hiding into the labels everyone expects you to follow is how everyone should live there life. Just because it hurts to do so isn't something bad, just means your living life

    I think it means spending so much time trying to fit in is gonna get you nowhere . Acting like someone your not isnt real, be true to who you are really. To be hurting isnt a bad thing it shows you fighting the war in your life .
    Im in love with this song, its on repeat <3 .

    I think in this song she is pretty much saying that she let something get the best of her to the point that she doesn't realize who her true self is, and when she does realize it she doesn't like it. I also think she is talking about obstacles in her life and self esteem problems.

    You should always be true to who you are, and always believe in yourself, because you are beautiful no matter what!
