  • You're insecure
    Don't know what for
    You're turning heads when you walk through the door
    Don't need make-up, to cover up
    Being the way that you are is enough

    Everyone else in the room can see it
    Everyone else but you

    Baby you light up my world like nobody else
    The way that you flip your hair gets me overwhelmed
    But when you smile at the ground it ain't hard to tell
    You don't know, oh oh
    You don't know you're beautiful
    If only you saw what I can see
    You'll understand why I want you so desperately
    Right now I'm looking at you and I can't believe
    You don't know, oh oh
    You don't know you're beautiful, oh oh
    That's what makes you beautiful

    So come on, you got it wrong
    To prove I'm right, I put it in a song
    I don't know why, you're being shy
    And turn away when I look into your eye eye eyes

    Everyone else in the room can see it
    Everyone else but you

    Baby you light up my world like nobody else
    The way that you flip your hair gets me overwhelmed
    But when you smile at the ground it ain't hard to tell
    You don't know, oh oh
    You don't know you're beautiful
    If only you saw what I can see
    You'll understand why I want you so desperately
    Right now I'm looking at you and I can't believe
    You don't know, oh oh
    You don't know you're beautiful, oh oh
    That's what makes you beautiful

    (Na na na na na na na)

    Baby you light up my world like nobody else
    The way that you flip your hair gets me overwhelmed
    But when you smile at the ground it ain't hard to tell
    You don't know, oh oh
    You don't know you're beautiful

    Baby you light up my world like nobody else
    The way that you flip your hair gets me overwhelmed
    But when you smile at the ground it ain't hard to tell
    You don't know, oh oh
    You don't know you're beautiful
    If only you saw what I can see
    You'll understand why I want you so desperately
    Right now I'm looking at you and I can't believe
    You don't know, oh oh
    You don't know you're beautiful, oh oh
    You don't know you're beautiful, oh oh
    That's what makes you beautiful Writer/s: Carl Anthony Falk, Rami Yacoub, Savan Harish Kotecha
