I’ve found a new song for my “soundtrack”.

Rob played this 2012 X Factor Audition of a girl named Jillian Jensen.

Okay, so first things first, I ♥heart♥ her voice! She’s amazing. Secondly, she has a pretty heartbreaking story, but it’s one I can definitely relate to, in that she was teased and bullied endlessly in middle, junior and high school. What I really love about her audition is the song she sang, Who I Am by Jessi J. The words totally speak to me and I love it.

Check out her audition here:

Who You Are
by Jessie J

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
No, no, no, no

Don’t lose who you are, in the blur of the stars
Seeing is deceiving, dreaming is believing,
It’s okay not to be okay
Sometimes it’s hard, to follow your heart
Tears don’t mean you’re losing, everybody’s bruising,
Just be true to who you are

(Who you are, who you are, who you are)
(Who you are, who you are, who you are)

(Who you are, who you are, who you are)

(Who you are, who you are)

Brushing my hair, do I look perfect?
I forgot what to do to fit the mold, yeah
The more I try the less it’s working, yeah,
‘Cause everything inside me screams, no, no, no, no, yeah

Don’t lose who you are, in the blur of the stars
Seeing is deceiving, dreaming is believing
It’s okay not to be okay
Sometimes it’s hard, to follow your heart
But tears don’t mean you’re losing, everybody’s bruising
There’s nothing wrong with who you are

Yes, no’s, egos, fake shows
Like woo, just go, and leave me alone
Real talk, real life, good love, goodnight
With a smile , that’s my own
That’s my own, no, no, no, no, no

Don’t lose who you are, in the blur of the stars
Seeing is deceiving, dreaming is believing
It’s okay not to be okay
Sometimes it’s hard, to follow your heart
Tears don’t mean you’re losing, everybody’s bruising
Just be true to who you are, yeah, yeah, yeah
