Beautiful 'Cause You Love Me

  • Standing over the basin
    I've been washing my face in
    Jet black mascara racing
    Down my cheeks 'til I taste it
    Staring at my reflection
    Every slight imperfection
    Staring back at me
    Naked as a girl can be

    And who would have thought that I'd be so content in my own skin?

    Right now the whole world could call me ugly
    So what?
    To you I'm not
    You don't love me 'cause I'm beautiful
    Oh no
    I'm beautiful 'cause you love me

    I can tell you the deepest
    And darkest of my secrets
    Knowing that you will keep it
    And it won't change our feelings
    Every mark on my body
    You know every inch of me
    All the parts that I
    Used to hate you glorify

    There's a new meaning to freedom when I'm with you

    Right now the whole world could call me ugly
    So what?
    To you I'm not
    You don't love me 'cause I'm beautiful
    Oh no
    I'm beautiful 'cause you love me

    Beautiful 'cause you love me

    There's a new meaning to freedom when I'm with you

    Right now the whole world could call me ugly
    So what?
    To you I'm not
    You don't love me 'cause I'm beautiful
    Oh no
    I'm beautiful 'cause you love me
