Looks, single by Dame Zina. 22/04/2022

Music video

Looks is a song that feels very personal for it is about the way the world tries to make us fit perfectly, but none of can can truly be as it wants us to be. All my life I’ve struggled with my nature that always tries to be exactly as is required of me, and myself, who is unique and full of « flaws »… as time goes by, I learn to love those flaws as my personal treasure.

Our new single is out on every music streaming platform.

It is available to purchase on Opensea.

The original flower associated with Looks is a purple colombine, flower of foolishness, but colour of resolution, as full of contradictions as I am when trying to love myself. I love that this flower is full of little details, it’s beautiful and original, just as we all are.

Here are the six other versions available to purchase as NFTs on Opensea.

Lyrics :

I look in the mirror
And all I see is she
A little lonely girl
Lost in pure reflection

But then I look longer
And all I see is me
A strong little woman
Always a step ahead

Such a naive child
Such a pretty girl
Such a strong woman
But I don’t give a damn

Eternal optimist
I care a lil’ too fast
I love a lil’ too soon
And I think way too much

I’m all at the same time
Ecstatic then depressed
Let me make it make sense
I’m lost in sensation

Such a naive child
Such a pretty girl
Such a strong woman
But I don’t give a damn

I know a thing or two
But still I get confused
Le coeur a ses raisons
Que la raison ignore

I feel like a genius
And then like a big fool
But in my heart I know
That my path is the one

Such a naive child
Such a pretty girl
Such a strong woman
But I don’t give a damn

Just an unperfect girl
comparing and complexed

But when I look longer
I can see all of me
My sacred womanhood
Like a baroque painting

I grew up pretty, beautiful as any child
Cute creature of innocence, candor and sweetness
Never looking at myself or anybody
With judgment, comparisons or any rudness

I didn’t think looks meant anything important
Effortlessly supportive, always satisfied.
Only thought of appearances when we disguised
When we played games, looks never were serious matters

I look at the mirror
And all I see is she
Just an unperfect girl
comparing and complexed.

But when I look longer
I can see all of me
My sacred womanhood
Like a baroque painting

As a teenager, I learned there were rules and codes
I was told to dress a certain way, look that way
Do my hair, wear makeup and wear bras all day long
I didn’t, but felt lonely by being myself

All the girls around me thought I was a weirdo
And I started to believe them, I was different.
I put myself in a box, to protect myself
And I considered them all the same, judgemental

After some years, I realized I did the same
I judged them for their looks, for their appearances.
And I started admiring them, for their beauty
For they were all sacred, with all their differences.

And now I’m sure, I’m beautiful, they’re beautiful
We are greater as sisters, helping each other
Freeing all of us from our complexes and fears
Admiring our curves, flaws, colours and uniqueness

I look at the mirror
And all I see is she
Just an unperfect girl
comparing and complexed.

But when I look longer
I can see all of me
My sacred womanhood
Like a baroque painting

Now when I look in the mirror I think of you
Extraordinary women, sacred people
Standing proudly, unique, richer, rainbows of love
I know I’m part of the world we made together

I stand for Social medias where we are ourselves
Where we pose as we are, assuming our own flaws
Where we wear makeup and dress sexy if we like,
Where we support each other til the end of times

I look at the mirror
And all I see is me
My sacred womanhood
Like a baroque painting
