Scars To Your Beautiful Lyrics

on Amazon Music

She just wants to be beautiful
She goes unnoticed, she knows no limits
She craves attention, she praises an image
She prays to be sculpted by the sculptor
Oh, she don't see the light that's shining
Deeper than the eyes can find it
Maybe we...

    This song is to tell girls everywhere that you are one unique snowflake in the billions out there and you are beautiful, no matter what, inside and out. A few other things this songs mentions are that you don't need to starve yourself to be a certain weight. Also, you can cry. When it mentions cutting woes away, I believe this song is talking about self harm, that it's okay to cry; dont cut your beautiful body. Also, Alessia Cara struggles with a condition that involves hair loss and she would always be so self conscious. She knows what it's like to be in a world that expects you to be perfect.

    I can only interpret this song as it applies to my experiences. I believe it is sending a message for young girls to love themselves regardless of what society sees as their "flaws". We all have flaws and that is what makes us beautiful. As we get older and experience life, which can take its toll, we develop scars on the inside and out. Don't be ashamed of these scars, because they are unique to us and shape who we are, which makes us uniquely beautiful. Our scars tell our story and that is something that should not be hidden or covered. You should be genuine and real, unlike a lot of women that are portrayed on TV and magazine covers who try to maintain the beauty of their youth that no longer exists.

    It means you don't have to change. and scars to your beautiful means you don't have to starve yourself or change yourself to know your beautiful. when it says cover girl eat nothing it means she is starving herself to be skinny.

    Scars to your beautiful is an amazing song. It's so inspiring because there's a time we want to change ourselves to another person we even envy others but when i heard it i felt so awesome!

    This is a beautiful song about a young woman who struggles with the dream of beauty. She wants to be the cover girl. But, as the artist says, YOU ARE BEAUTIFUL. The world has their own opinions. Do not listen to them. You are creative, smart, powerful, amazing, brave, and strong. Your REAL beauty comes from within. Just keep being you.

    I struggle with self harm, as all stated in song, as a teen but you can't let flaws bring you down. My ex boyfriend hated me for it but this song came along at that time and really helped. Whenever my girlfriend sees me down she plays this. It really helps. Alessia, thank you. To all the girls or boys out there who feel that way, Alessia and me along with others give you our love and support. GET BETTER! WE LOVE YOU! And any scars on your body show the battles you've gone through and came out alive.

    It means that you have to accept yourself. Embrace those flaws you've been trynna hide. You don't have to change yourself just to fit in this world, the world could change its heart ❤
    Get up. Face the mirror and say I AM BEAUTIFUL. DON'T FORGET TO SMILE.

    This song is absolutely beautiful ot teaches you that you don't habe to change for anyone and that you should have faith in yourself and cut your woes away means you attempt self harm I don't believe killing yourself is the answer to anything not even the worst situation I believe you will go to hell if you kill yourself you were made beautiful and you should respect that and I live the quote "Why try to fit in when you were born to stand out" people respect who you are don't change the slightest

    This interpretation has been marked as poor. view anyway

    Everyone feels like they aren't worth it sometimes. This song tells how some girls feel they need to starve themselves to be skinny (for beauty), cover up their faces with loads of makeup (for beauty), and show off their bodies to feel good (and guess what? for beauty!) But I will tell you right now if you think you have to take yourself and change it and make yourself something your not to be beautiful, you need to wake up. God made you beautiful and He don't make mistakes, people! No matter how bad you may feel about yourself and how much people judge you, you are beautiful! That is what this song is saying! "She craves attention" We all do sometimes. Don't change yourself to get it though. Use the gifts you were given by God to stand out. Beauty isn't skin deep. Beauty is on the inside. I honestly wish that beauty was only on the inside. The world would be better that way. This song basically says you are beautiful and wonderful and magnificent and unique just the way you are. Don't change yourself for anyone else.

    its "your beautiful" your inner beauty, own your own beautiful. "no scars" means that even though we all have "scars" internally and externally, those scars cant touch your unique beauty. Thus.."no scars to your beautiful".

    My daughter has horrible acne your song is so beautiful for people like her that suffer from other people staring and condemning for not being perfect. She is so beautiful inside and out and doesn't deserve any unfairness from others.

    This song is sending a message to young girls who think they have to change to be accepted and she is trying to tell them to be themselves and not to change to impress anyone
