More Beautiful You

Remember the song lyrics I posted a while ago? "Beautiful You" by Jonny Diaz? Well, here are the lyrics and amazing song again. More songs like this need to be out there.

More Beautiful You

Little girl fourteen flipping through a magazine
Says she wants to look that way
But her hair isn’t straight her body isn’t fake
And she’s always felt overweight

Well little girl fourteen I wish that you could see
That beauty is within your heart
And you were made with such care your skin your body and your hair
Are perfect just the way they are

There could never be a more beautiful you
Don’t buy the lies disguises and hoops they make you jump through
You were made to fill a purpose that only you could do
So there could never be a more beautiful you

Little girl twenty-one the things that you’ve already done
Anything to get ahead
And you say you’ve got a man but he’s got another plan
Only wants what you will do instead

Well little girl twenty-one you never thought that this would come
You starve yourself to play the part
But I can promise you there’s a man whose love is true
And he’ll treat you like the jewel you are

So turn around you’re not too far
To back away be who you are
To change your path go another way
It’s not too late you can be saved
If you feel depressed with past regrets
The shameful nights hope to forget
Can disappear they can all be washed away
By the one who’s strong can right your wrongs
Can rid your fears dry all your tears
And change the way you look at this big world
He will take your dark distorted view
And with His light He will show you truth
And again you’ll see through the eyes of a little girl

Thanks for sharing. It is heartbreaking and ridiculous that girls today want to look like the cover of a celebrity magazine. That sort of "magazine" beauty is so fake-true beauty is that which the Lord gives us.

Great message. Great tune. I enjoyed the song the first time you posted it and enjoyed it now.

Its so sad that girls these days feel like they have to starve themselves and use ridiculous amounts and colors of makeup to make themselves "beautiful","sexy",and "men-pleasing."And usually its because they see it on magazines or they didn't get the love they should have from a father and are looking for it from a no-good guy who,like Johnny Diaz says,"who only wants what you'll do instead."Anyway,love the song,love the video,and love your blog!
