    This song is one of the hardest... Having to sing it well while portraying so much emotion like what the hell

    She reminds me of a young Judy Garland. In looks and emotion when she sings.

    It's not simple to say
    That most days I don't recognize me
    That these shoes and this apron
    That place and its patrons
    Have taken more than I gave them
    It's not easy to know
    I'm not anything like I used be, although it's true
    I was never attention's sweet center
    I still remember that girl
    She's imperfect, but she tries
    She is good, but she lies
    She is hard on herself
    She is broken and won't ask for help
    She is messy, but she's kind
    She is lonely most of the time
    She is all of this mixed up and baked in a beautiful pie
    She is gone, but she used to be mine
    It's not what I asked for
    Sometimes life just slips in through a back door
    And carves out a person and makes you believe it's all true
    And now I've got you
    And you're not what I asked for
    If I'm honest, I know I would give it all back
    For a chance to start over and rewrite an ending or two
    For the girl that I knew
    Who'll be reckless, just enough
    Who'll get hurt, but who learns how to toughen up
    When she's bruised and gets used by a man who can't love
    And then she'll get stuck
    And be scared of the life that's inside her
    Growing stronger each day 'til it finally reminds her
    To fight just a little, to bring back the fire in her eyes
    That's been gone, but used to be mine
    Used to be mine
    She is messy, but she's kind
    She is lonely most of the time
    She is all of this mixed up and baked in a beautiful pie
    She is gone, but she used to be mine

    I think she sang it very emotionally, and she sounds like an ordinary waitress who is not a professional singer singing this from her heart. But I personally prefer Katherine Mcphee or Shoshana version, as they sounded like professional singers who can really sing and strong voices, and also able to convey the emotions. But I also didn't like original version by original singer. I actually don't think original singer voice suits her own song.

    Well, sorry not to think as everyone here but in my opinion she is a better singer than an actress. But I am not a expert this kind of show so probably I cannot appreciate what she eventualy deserve. I only came here because of Sara.

    Jessie is the perfect Jenna. She doesn’t just sing but tells the story at the same time. I wish she still plays her in the musical but we all know cast members come and go.

    I thought I wouldn't ever relate to this, but now I am haha, I don't feel like myself anymore, everything on the internet keeps saying I'm moderate to severely depressed and I don't believe it, noone has ever hated me before, and when I realized someone I loved hated me, I fell apart, but she is not a person to tell her problems, she is a broken girl, she has problems everywhere, she is trapped but fine with it all, and I am not fine with it all, I forced her to commit to someone not for me, I forced her to be friends with people who never did appreciate me, I forced her to be a normal girl, but she is not a normal girl, oh how I remember her so well, I am not her anymore, I am emotional, depressed, I can't keep the problems to myself, I need someone to listen to everything, I forced her to love a man who's not real

    I don't think anyone playing the part of Jenna will ever be able to top Jessie. I think that acting ability is often overlooked by how well you can sing or dance in musical theatre but Jessie Mueller has an incredible talent in the area. This song was made for her.

    Imagine someone who just discovered this art form this year. That is me. I'm a guy who if you said would love musicals a year ago I would tell you that you're crazy. Guys like me don't like this kind of stuff. But the beauty in this art form is overwhelming. I've missed so much. I remember the day as a teenager I went to see the movie, "Little Shop of Horrors" because of the actors and preview but then hated that it was a musical. It took 25 years to really appreciate what I missed. Regular music and acting has nothing on this...

    Who'll be reckless just enough
    Who'll get hurt
    But who learns how to toughen up when she's bruised
    And gets used by a man who can't love
    And then she'll get stuck and be scared
    Of the life that's inside her
    Getting stronger each day
    'Til it finally reminds her
    To fight just a little
    To bring back the fire in her eyes
    That's been gone but it used to be mine
    Used to be mine
    She is messy but she's kind
    She is lonely most of the time
    She is all of this mixed up and baked in a beautiful pie
    She is gone but she used to be mine
