Scars To Your Beautiful Lyrics

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...

    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 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.

    This song is about inner beauty and the world that asks girls to wear a makeup.

    I am a teenager and I don't wear makeups or care about my hair when almost all of my friends cover up their faces.
    Since I was thirteen all the girls started to care about their appearance and i thought like, when your inside is beautiful why do you have to wear a mask. Now I'm sixteen since the adults continuously asked me to wear makeups I tried some makeups for my first time this year. For me i think it works Real bad and it felt like I'm loosing myself in this world

    This song is telling the girls that they are beautiful as they are and they do not have to change themselves to fit in "ideal beauty"

    As a teenager i sometimes struggle when people around me asks me to wear a makeup or when all my friends except me are covering up their face. But I know that what I really think beautiful is my own face and my heart.
    And I believe the most important thing is to believe that your beautiful isn't somewhere else

    "You should know you're beautiful just the way you are
    And you don't have to change a thing, the world could change its heart

    I love all the assuring words of not allowing yourself to be dictated to by other peoples idea of what is perfect. The lyrics are positive in helping us to affirm our own idea's of what is beautiful.
    However...When the lyrics say that there is a "...a hope that's waiting for you in the dark"
    Wonder what she is referring to there? What's in the dark? Time to isolate and self harm and be hurt by yourself, time to block out the pain...or something more sinister? The song and tune are beautiful and just need one word change to change it to a complete positive and motivational anthem

    I finally understand the title! Scars to your beautiful means you won't be any less beautiful if you don't wear makeup, if you let people see your face instead of a mask.

    I think it's a song for everyone on the world that feels like they're never enough, in this song allessia sings about scars, maybe they are cuts. It's an fall back for exhausting times, but don't do it! It is not going to make it happen.

    This is a wonderful song about how you are beautiful just the way you are. The part where it says 'scars to your beautiful' has to interpretations,
    1. Your scars make you who you are, don't hide them
    2. You don't have to scars fron beauty surgery or plastic surgery or eating disorders, to be beautiful.
    Thanks Alessia!

    I'm in love with this songs it tell not only women but even men that makes it to everyone! Alessia Cara is telling people not to hide their scars, don"t let others put you down just for how you look always stand up for your rights and put your head up straight. You are strong, unique, brave, and mostly beautiful. its your scars that make you stand up, its what makes you different but in a unique way. Don't ever put yourself down again Just know that you don't need to change yourself to fit in this world, the world has to change itself.

    I had anorexia and listening to this song helped me because it boosted my confidence and made me feel like I mattered, no matter who you are what your problem is "you are beautiful just the way you are".

    It means you have to accept your beauty on the inside an outside. Your beautiful no matter what you look like or who you are. its how you were made so why don't you accept it and don't listen to all those people doubting you or putting you down cause of your looks.so just accept who you are and what you have cause you only live once.

    You are beautiful no matter what. And thats what matters from the inside and out. More people love you than more people hate you so pay attention to those people that love you.

    I get it. I understand the meaning behind the song. What I DON'T understand is the incomprehesible Scars 'to' your beautiful. You're beautiful is a common phrase.
    Your beautiful makes no sense. "Scars" to your beautiful makes even less.
    Can someone explain?

    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!

    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.
