Beauty In The Ugly

Album: We Sing. We Dance. We Steal Things. (2008)
  • She's so big hearted,
    But not so remarkable
    Just an ordinary humble girl
    Expecting nothing as we're made to think
    Its a pretty person's world

    But you are beautiful and you better go show it
    So go look again, you gotta be true to your own
    If you really wanna go to the top
    Do you really wanna win?
    Don't believe in living normal, just to satisfy demand

    Well if you wanna get free
    And if you wanna do the passionate thing
    And if you wanna get smart for the sake of your heart
    You should own your name and stand up tall
    And get real and see the beauty in ugly

    Well you are fresh, you're face is fabulous
    Don't forget you're one of a kind
    When nobody is checking the deeds you've done
    And nobody is hearing your cries
    You make all of the fashion statements
    Just by dressing up your mind

    And if you wanna get free
    And if you wanna do the passionate thing
    And if you wanna get smart for the sake of your heart
    You should own your name and stand up tall
    And get real and see the beauty in ugly
    And see the beauty in ugly
    And see the beauty in ugly

    well if you wanna get free
    and if you wanna do the passionate thing
    and if you wanna get smart for the sake of your heart and oh
    you should own your name and stand up tall
    and get real and see the beauty in ugly
    see the beauty in a ulgy
