  • Take off all the makeup girl
    Shine your light, show the world
    Don't be shy, don't be scared
    You don't have to hide under there
    Let's throw away all the magazines
    Turn off the static on the TV
    Wish you could see yourself the way I do

    Nobody ever told you
    Nobody ever told you
    You shine like a diamond
    Glitter like a gold
    And you need to know
    What nobody ever told you

    Yeah
    La la la la la

    Mirror mirror on the wall
    Acting like he knows it all
    Tells you lies of vanity
    He doesn't care what's underneath
    All hung up on the negative
    Doesn't have to be the way it is
    Wish you could see yourself the way I do

    Nobody ever told you
    Nobody ever told you
    You shine like a diamond
    Glitter like a gold
    And you need to know
    What nobody ever told you

    Free as a bird,
    Up on a watch
    Just like a flower growing wild
    You're beautiful, you're beautiful

    Nobody ever told you
    Nobody ever told you
    You shine like a diamond
    Glitter like a gold
    And you need to know
    What nobody ever told you

    You shine like a diamond
    Glitter like gold
    And you need to know
    What nobody ever told you

    Oh you're free as a bird up on a wire
    Just like a flower growing wild, just like a flower growing wild Writer/s: CARRIE UNDERWOOD, HILLARY LINDSEY, LUKE LAIRD
