Don't Waste The Pretty

Album: Just Like You (2009)
  • Dust it off, break it down
    Get to what we're talking about
    To what we're talking about
    Don't try and hide it now
    You can't keep working it out
    You can't keep working it out

    See how he's putting you down
    I just can't be around
    What you doing this for?
    'Cause lightning is starting to fade off
    Don't let it get away
    Girl, you're worth so much more

    Don't waste the pretty on him
    Don't waste the pretty on pain
    When it gets too much to take, don't give it away
    Don't waste the pretty on life
    Soon it's gonna fly on by
    Whatever way you gotta say it
    Don't waste the pretty, yeah

    Sit back and breathe it in
    Look at how lucky we are
    Just look how lucky we are
    This life I'm living in
    Well, you've gotta follow your heart
    So you know I'm never too far

    Away from the pain in your eyes
    I can see your disguise
    But it's not too late
    'Cause I know this pain can't be around
    Don't be scared, work it out
    There's no way to say ?

    Don't waste the pretty on him
    Don't waste the pretty on pain
    When it gets too much to take, don't give it away
    Don't waste the pretty on life
    Soon it's gonna fly on by
    Whatever way you gotta say it
    Don't waste the pretty, yeah

    And just in case you need what I need
    Girl you're beautiful, beautiful, beautiful
    And every boy will send you heartache
    'Cause you're beautiful, beautiful, beautiful, yeah

    Don't waste the pretty on him
    Don't waste the pretty on pain
    When it gets too much to take, don't give it away
    Don't waste the pretty on life
    Soon it's gonna fly on by
    Whatever way you gotta say it
    Don't waste the pretty, yeah Writer/s: MIRIAM NERVO, OLIVIA NERVO, STEFANIE RIDEL, MICHAEL SMIDI
