What Makes You Beautiful Lyrics
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...

This song is soooooo cute. Its about a guy who likes a girl because she "doesnt know shes beautiful", and thats what he likes about her. He likes that shes not cocky and arrogant about her looks, but modest and has a good personality instead. He looks past her looks and sees who she really is inside, and he finds her perosnality attractive, not just her looks. Every guy needs to be like that.

This song is about a girl who is shy/negative about herself & we're trying to make her feel better

its about a girl that dosent show off her beauty and the guy likes for who she is/her personality

I think it doesn't necessarily mean she isn't beautiful, just that she isn't the kind of girl to flaunt it. I think the song is to a shy girl who doesn't recognize her own beauty & he's trying to make he realize it.

This song is about a boy who loves a beautiful girl. The girl as a matter of fact does not know that she is beautiful. She is not self conscious of her looks nor her figure like many other girls. Everyone but her knew of her beauty. She felt shy whenever she walks in a crowded room and when people looked at her beautiful eyes. The boy really loved her because of this and in fact referred to as 'what makes her beautiful'.
In my personal opinion, I would like every girl to be like this girl and stop acting cocky just because they are beautiful. The true value of a girl is her inside and not her outside appearence

its a song about love and is about a girl who is insecure and doesnt know what to expect and the guys say she so beatiful i every way and everyone knows it but her and its like they like her and she doesnt know but she acts all shy and stuff and they wonder why shes doing all of that

this is a song written to make girls feel all good inside and has no real meaning, 1D sucks and they just play on the fact that girls die for them and know that it will sell
I think this is probably the most STUPID song ever written/invented/sung.
Obviously, the girl is a pathetic, self-centered MORON. "The turning heads when you walk through the door?" and she still "don't know you're beautiful?" -___-
She's a depressed no-brain girl, so lost in her own thought that "I'm not beautiful. I'm so darn ugly. I'm so pathetic." I mean, GET A LIFE. Everyone is beautiful.
And the guy is a jerk. Liking someone just because she's beautiful/pretty/has big boobs is very PATHETIC and... USELESS.

This song is about the beauty that life can provide you with if you seize the moment and and never let it go not even if it begs and pleads and threatens to call the cops. The moment is your moment and it has no rights of its own, being simply a moment. So treat the moment with no dignity and demand a large amount of money from the moments relatives, and once you have acquired the large sum of money spend it on alcohol.

It's about a girl who is not attractive but the guy looks through all that and to him she is beautiful

Its about a girl that doesnt believe she is beautiful but she actually is in every way.

he likes that she isn't aware of her beauty. but now that he's informed her wouldn't that make her not beautiful? if you think about it this song is kind of counter productive...

There's a girl who doesn't think that she's pretty, but there's a boy that think that she is. He tries to make her see that she's beautiful.

This is about a girl thinking that she isn't beautiful when she is. So they are telling her that she is beautiful.

It's about a boy who knows a girl who isnt't just beautiful because of the way she looks...also because of the way she is. But she doesn't know it, she's insecure and he wants to show her how beautiful she is <3

It is a song that when listened to can make people feel good. Many girls (and boys) may listen to it and feel better about themselves because they can relate to the character.
However in saying that the video clip probably has a drop dead gorgeous girl in it, which will make everyone go back to feeling bad about themselves.
The boys are singing about a girl who definately has a negative mental attitude towards herself. She is insecure and could possibly have disorders because of her insecurity. The boys are telling her that she is beautiful and everyone knows it except for her. In a way they are trying to help open her eyes to see reality.
Other wise they are trying to serenade her to get in her pants
This interpretation has been marked as poor. view anyway
