  • You said that I wasn't pretty
    So I just believed you
    You said that I wasn't special
    So I lived that way
    With critical gazes and brutal amazement
    At how my reflection could be so imperfect
    With all of my blemishes
    How could somebody want me

    But God loves ugly
    He doesn't see the way I see
    Oh, God takes ugly
    And turns it into something that is beautiful
    Apparently I'm beautiful
    Cause You love me

    I tried to clean up the outside
    All shiny and new
    Worked overtime to thin up and look right
    But inside I knew
    That deep in the bottom were secrets I thought I could try to ignore
    Old ghosts in my corridors never get tired of haunting the past that's in me

    But God loves ugly
    He doesn't see the way I see
    Oh, God takes ugly
    And turns it into something that is beautiful
    Apparently I'm beautiful
    Cause You love me

    Help me believe why you love me
    When I know you see
    You see everything
    Help me believe why you love me
    When I know you see inside and you still say I'm beautiful
    You're telling me I'm beautiful
    You're screaming out, so beautiful
    And I'm finding out I'm beautiful
    You're making me so beautiful
    And I can see I'm beautiful
    'Cause you love me Writer/s: CHRISTA BLACK
