Leanna Crawford - "Mean Girls" | Acoustic Session



On a back patio, Leanna Crawford sings the song she wrote with Matthew West and AJ Pruis. She remembers a time many years ago when another girl made a comment on her weight, and that one comment still follows Crawford today — finding herself still self-conscious about the way she looks. Leanna says she hopes the lyrics of “Mean Girls” will help young girls know that while the words can hurt, it doesn’t have to define us.

Mean Girls – Leanna Crawford Lyrics

Mean girls don’t remember what they said
Well, it’s funny ’cause I can’t seem to forget
Their whispers opened up the door
To a world called insecure
No, mean girls don’t remember what they said

Stick and stones may break my bones
But no one ever warned me about words

I smile and I pretend it doesn’t hurt
But the older that I get it just gets worse
Lord, find me and remind me that my worth
Is worth so much more than their words

The little girl inside that picture frame
Was smiling ’cause she never heard of shame
But now mean girls are the reason why
I change my clothes a thousand times
Before I walk out the door

Stick and stones may break my bones
But no one ever warned me about words

I smile and I pretend it doesn’t hurt
But the older that I get it just gets worse
Lord, find me and remind me that my worth
Is worth so much more than their words
You say I’m more than their words

So much more than their words
I smile and I pretend it doesn’t hurt
But the older that I get it just gets worse
I need You to find me and remind me that my worth
Is worth so much more than their words
