This Pretty Face

Album: A Curious Thing (2010)
  • I don't care
    Who does her hair or
    What clothes she wears
    I don't care if it's YSL. I don't care if it's Chanel
    What matters to me is a strong belief
    All this beauty is skin deep
    Don't care about hair, don't care about eyes
    It's about what's inside

    You'll never know who you'll meet on you way to the top
    You'll probably see them again when your fame starts to drop
    Down down, I'll meet you on the ground
    It's no good with your hair and your shiny blue eyes
    It's no good when you finally start to realize
    I need something more
    This pretty face don't work no more

    What happened to achieving
    What happened to believing in yourself
    Why listen to the musings of someone, somebody else
    I'm sorry I don't see and I can't quite believe it anymore
    What happened to believing that beauty's in the eye of the beholder

    You'll never know who you'll meet on you way to the top
    You'll probably see them again when your fame starts to drop
    Down down, I'll meet you on the ground
    It's no good with your hair and your shiny blue eyes
    It's no good when you finally start to realize
    I need something more
    This pretty face don't work no more

    You'll never know who you'll meet on you way to the top
    You'll probably see them again when your fame starts to drop
    Down down, I'll meet you on the ground
    It's no good with your hair and your shiny blue eyes
    It's no good when you finally start to realize
    I need something more
    This pretty face don't work no more Writer/s: AMY ELIZABETH MACDONALD
