  • I caught you looking in the window at your reflection and
    I could see you were unimpressed
    I watch you whither like a willow at what you think are imperfections
    When you compare you to all the rest
    And I wish I could find a way to make you see you the way I do
    So I wrote this song for you

    You're better than a Beethoven symphony
    And Mona Lisa wishes she could be a masterpiece like you
    More than any Michelangelo
    When I look at you I know
    There's no other masterpiece like you
    You are the only one and only you

    There is music in your laughter the world has never heard before
    You came and brought a melody
    The way you say it the way you see it
    When you're sad and glad and so much more
    All these gifts only you can bring
    Still I know that right now everything that you feel says it's just not true
    So I'll keep reminding you that

    You're better than a Beethoven symphony
    And Mona Lisa wishes she could be a masterpiece like you
    More than any Michelangelo
    When I look at you I know there's no other masterpiece like you
    You are the only one and only you

    Wonderfully, carefully woven together by God's own hand
    And you're better than a Beethoven symphony
    And Mona Lisa wishes she could be a masterpiece like you
    More than any Michelangelo
    When I look at you I know there's no other masterpiece like you
    You are the only one and only you
    You are the only one and only you Writer/s: STEVEN CURTIS CHAPMAN
