You're Beautiful

She’s barely thirteen with all of life ahead,
Barely at the beginning, she wants it all to end,
Looking in the mirror, not a kind word ever said,
Young girl, a little confidence I want to send,
She seeing with eyes the world has pulled apart,
Can’t tell she’s beautiful, never knows she’s beautiful,
The world just criticizes and leaves a hole not a heart,
It’s our fault she doesn’t see she’s beautiful, it’s inexcusable.

Let me catch you before the tears can start,
don’t even know yourself, how can you hate who you are?
So take these words and let them find your heart,
Know you’re beautiful, beautiful like a star.

Jump forward and now she’s eighteen,
Sees the world through a mask of jealousy,
Can’t love herself and that’s obscene,
life falling within her entropy,
Never sees her worth,she lives in spite,
Tears others down but it never brings her up,
Young lady, you’re beautiful, don’t lose the fight,
now‘s the time to stand up

Let me catch you before the tears can start,
don’t even know yourself, how can you hate who you are?
So take these words and let them find your heart,
Know you’re beautiful, beautiful like a star.

Mid-twenties, she’s at the bottom of the glass,
Sex is a tool, because she can’t start forgiving,
Found a man but he’s nothing but an ass,
He’s punishment, she’s never started living,
Unhappy, sick, bound by the weight of hate,
lost her voice to life constrained in depression,
Believe you’re beautiful, it isn’t too late,
Say it, let that be your confession.

Let me catch you before the tears can start,
don’t even know yourself, how can you hate who you are?
So take these words and let them find your heart,
Know you’re beautiful, beautiful like a star.

Thirties now and she’s finally found herself,
Put all the bad thoughts high up on the shelf,
A mother now, she loves everything she is,
She’s found someone and now she’s his,
A little daughter, now she is dutiful,
Please, remind her she’s beautiful.
