This is a song about how other people's attitude toward us can make us feel insecure and get us down, it is also about being strong and coping with these feelings. It's a powerful ballad that was written by Linda Perry but recorded by Christina Aguilera in her second album Stipped (2002).

She won a 2004 Grammy Award for "Best Female Pop Vocal Performance", and Linda Perry received a 2004 Grammy Award nomination for Song of the Year.

Every day is so
And suddenly, it's so hard to breathe
Now and then, I get
From all the pain, I'm so ashamed

But I am beautiful no matter what they
Words can't bring me down
I am beautiful in every single
Yes, words can't bring me down
Oh no, so don't you bring me down

To all your friends, you're
So consumed in all of your doom
Trying so hard to fill the
The piece is gone left the puzzle
Is that the way it is

Don't you bring me down today
Don't you bring me down today
