Little Me is a song by Little Mix that serves as the second single and appears as the third track on their second album Salute. An acoustic titled "Little Me - Unplugged" appears as the sixteenth track on the Deluxe Edition of the album.

Background

According to Little Mix, the message of the song is to make their fans feel good about themselves. “We really wanted to write a song basically about what we would tell ourselves if we could go back in time,” Jade explained to Capital FM, while Leigh-Anne Pinnock explained: “It’s basically a message to the fans because a lot of them are quite young. “It’s like we’ve all been through it, we’ve had haters and people telling us we can’t do it and it’s like, ‘Well I wish I hadn’t have handled it in that way, I wish I hadn’t have let them get me down’.

Lyrics

Jade:
She lives in the shadow of a lonely girl
Voice so quiet you don't hear a word
Always talking but she can't be heard

Leigh-Anne:
You can see it there if you catch her eye
I know she's brave but it's trapped inside
Scared to talk but she don't know why

Little Mix:
Wish I know back then what I know now
Wish I could somehow go back and tell me
Maybe listen to my own advice

I'd tell her to speak up, tell her to shout out
Talk a bit louder, be a bit prouder
Tell her she's beautiful, wonderful
Everything she doesn't see

You gotta speak up, you gotta shout out
And know that right here, right now
You can be beautiful, wonderful
Anything you wanna be (Jesy: Little me)

Jesy:
Yeah you got a lot of time to act your age
You can't write a book from a single page
Hands on the clock only turn one way, yeah, yeah hey yeah

Perrie:
Run too fast, then you risk it all
Can't be afraid to take a fall
Felt so big but she looked so small

Little Mix:
Wish I know back then what I know now
Wish I could somehow go back and tell me
Maybe listen to my own advice

I'd tell her to speak up, tell her to shout out
Talk a bit louder, be a bit prouder
Tell her she's beautiful, wonderful
Everything she doesn't see (Jesy: I know that right here, right now)

You gotta speak up (Perrie: speak up), you gotta shout out (Perrie: shout out)
And know that right here, right now
You can be beautiful, wonderful
Anything you wanna be (Jade: Ohh, little me)

Little me, yeah yeah, hey, na

Leigh-Anne:
I tell you one thing, I would say to her

Little Mix:
I'd tell her to speak up, tell her to shout out
Talk a bit louder, be a bit prouder

Everything she doesn't see

(Jade: You got to) You gotta speak up, you gotta shout out (Jade: You got to shout oh)
And know that right here, right now
You can be beautiful, wonderful
Anything you wanna be (Leigh-Anne: Be yeah)

Talk a bit louder, be a bit prouder

Everything she doesn't see
