Pretty

Album: Road Less Traveled (2017)
  • You spend an hour on your hair
    And you can't find a thing to wear at all
    You pile that makeup on real thick
    Trace outside the lines of your thin lips
    'Cause they ain't big enough
    All the other girls are thinner
    So you skip another dinner
    You tell yourself it's for your health
    What's the matter with this picture?
    Girl, deep down you know better

    Beautiful is who you are
    When no one's watching, it's your heart
    That should be the one to tell your story
    'Cause the rhythm that it's beating is your glory
    The truth inside you can't erase 'cause
    It ain't written on your face
    There's no difference between a mirror and a liar because
    Pretty is as pretty does, does

    You've got hopes and you've got dreams
    But you've been hiding them behind the scenes, oh yeah
    But pretty cares and pretty loves
    And I'm pretty sure you're more than just skin deep, oh
    Them high heels won't get you higher
    Let your kindness be a fire burning bright
    You're the light

    Beautiful is who you are
    When no one's watching, it's your heart
    That should be the one to tell your story
    'Cause the rhythm that it's beating is your glory
    The truth inside you can't erase 'cause
    It ain't written on your face
    There's no difference between a mirror and a liar because
    Pretty is as pretty does, does, pretty does

    So be brave, be strong
    Keep your love light on
    Be the right in all the wrongs
    Yeah, be generous and be radiant
    You are confident

    Oh, beautiful is who you are
    When no one's watching, it's your heart
    That should be the one to tell your story
    'Cause the rhythm that it's beating is your glory
    The truth inside you can't erase 'cause
    It ain't written on your face
    There's no difference between a mirror and a liar because
    Pretty is as pretty does

    So be brave, be strong
    Keep your love light on
    Be the right in all the wrongs
    (Pretty does) be generous and be radiant (yeah, yeah)
    You are confident
    Pretty is as pretty does, oh
