Try, try, try (Colbie Caillat)


Te despiertas una mañana de julio en Sevilla, tras una noche asfixiante, los aparatos de aire zumbando en tus oídos cual cigarras tecnológicas. Pensabas caminar al fresco tempranero. Incluso te has vestido con esas mallas tan cómodas y un calzado apropiado. Después del desayuno, pasadas las nueve, se ha hecho demasiado tarde. Hace tanto calor que un paseo a esa hora puede deshidratar a la más atlética.
Enfrentarse al espejo se ha convertido en un suplicio los últimos días. Pareces hinchada. ¿Estás más gorda?, te preguntas sin atreverte a poner los pies en la báscula. La cervecita, las tapas, los helados,... El verano es un cúmulo de tentaciones y tienes la tendencia natural de caer en todas.
¿Y el rostro? Desde luego que la edad no perdona, aunque te aseguraron en la tienda que aquella crema de día ocultaba las manchas. Tanto la crema de día como la de noche carecen de poderes milagrosos. Tendrás que resignarte a los efectos del tiempo en tu rostro.
En verano, las playas del mundo se pueblan de cuerpos jóvenes y hermosos, pieles doradas, largos cabellos con mechas brasileñas. En los grandes almacenes apenas quedan bikinis de tu talla y te resistes a enfundarte un bañador.
Por suerte, has encendido el ordenador mientras los fideos hervían en la sopa. Desde el facebook, has pinchado la canción.
-¡Valiente imbécil! Te has dicho entre risas.
Gracias, gracias, gracias, Colbie Caillat


Put your make up on


Get your nails done,
grow your hair
Run the extra mile

Keep it slim, so they like you

Do they like you?
Get your sexy on

Don't be shy, girl, take it off

This is what you want

To belong, so they like you

Do you like you?
You don't have to try so hard
You don't have to give it all away

You just have to get up,
get up, get up, get up

You don't have to change a single thing
You don't have to try,
try, try, try

You don't have to try,
try, try, try

You don't have to try,
try, try, try

You don't have to try

You don't have to try
Get your shopping on

At the mall, max your credit cards

You don't have to choose
Buy it all, so they like you

Do they like you?
Wait a second

Why should you care
what they think of you?

When you're all alone
By yourself, do you like you?

Do you like you?
You don't have to try so hard

You don't have to give it all away

You just have to get up,
get up, get up, get up

You don't have to change a single thing
You don't have to try so hard

You don't have to bend until you break

You just have to get up,
get up, get up, get up

You don't have to change a single thing
You don't have to try,
try, try, try

You don't have to try, try, try, try

You don't have to try

You don't have to try
You don't have to try,
try, try, try

You don't have to try,
try, try, try

You don't have to try,
try, try, try

You don't have to try

You don't have to try
You don't have to try so hard
You don't have to give it all away

You just have to get up,
get up, get up, get up

You don't have to change a single thing
You don't have to try,
try, try, try

You don't have to try,
try, try, try

You don't have to try,
try, try, try

You don't have to try
Take your make up off
Let your hair down, take a breath
Look into the mirror at yourself

Don't you like you?

'Cause I like you
