Masterpiece Lyrics

So much pressure, why so loud?
If you don't like my sound, you can turn it down
I gotta roll
And I walk it alone

Uphill battle, I look good when I climb
I'm ferocious precocious
I get braggadocios, I'm not gonna stop
I like the view from the top

You talk that
Blah blah that la la, that rah rah sh
And I'm so done, I'm so over it
Sometimes I mess up, I eff up, I hit and miss
But I'm okay, I'm cool with it

I still fall on my face sometimes and I
Can't color inside the lines 'cause
I'm perfectly incomplete
I'm still working on my masterpiece and I
I wanna hang with the greatest gotta
Way to go, but it's worth the wait, no
You haven't seen the best of me
I'm still working on my masterpiece and I

(Oh oh, oh ah)
(Oh oh, oh ah)

Those who mind, don't matter
Those who matter, don't mind
If you don't catch what I'm throwing then I leave you behind
Don't need a flash
And I am leaving like that

They talk that
Blah blah that la la, that rah rah sh
Go with the punches, and take the hits
Sometimes I mess up, I eff up, I swing and miss
But it's okay, I'm cool with this

I still fall on my face sometimes and I
Can't color inside the lines 'cause
I'm perfectly incomplete
I'm still working on my masterpiece and I
I wanna hang with the greatest gotta
Way to go, but it's worth the wait, no
You haven't seen the best of me
I'm still working on my masterpiece and I

(Oh oh, oh ah)
(Oh oh, oh ah)

I still fall on my face sometimes and I
Can't color inside the lines 'cause
I'm perfectly incomplete
I'm still working on my masterpiece
Masterpiece, masterpiece

I still fall on my face sometimes and I
Can't color inside the lines 'cause
I'm perfectly incomplete
I'm still working on my masterpiece and I
I wanna hang with the greatest gotta
Way to go, but it's worth the wait, no
You haven't seen the best of me
I'm still working on my masterpiece and I

(Oh oh, oh ah)
(Oh oh, oh ah) (still, workin' on, still workin' on)
Still workin' on my masterpiece

2 Thoughts & Meanings

This is a great song about a woman's independent spirit and her willingness to accept failure at times because she is working to become the best version of herself. You can see her independent spirit when she talks about walking alone and how she doesn't mind those that don't matter. She walks her own path and looks good while she is walking on it. She is ambitious but forgives herself when things don't always work out well. This song is great to listen to when you need inspiration to keep chasing your dreams.

An overall battle track, despite some mellow lines in the bridge, one of those you can draw strength from in order to get your day through, being that of a rockstar's, a businessman's or a clerk's. Haven't really noticed Jessie J until now, seems like a νoice and I reckon some basic raping abilities there
