Alessia Cara: Scars To Your Beautiful Meaning
Song Released: 2016
Scars To Your Beautiful Lyrics
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

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.

This song is about how you are beautiful no matter what. You shouldn't self hate for scars on your body that some how make you 'ugly'

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".

The song is so much encouraging everyone that no one is ugly and that our flaws should not deter what to achieve to be successful...... I love the song

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

I literally have over a dozen scars including one right down my forehead over my eye. All over my left leg on my arms my stomach my ribs... everywhere I am extremely lucky tho because whilst my scars are "noticeable" they blend very well... I love Alessia Cara and I get what this song wants to say, but it still hurts me when she says no scars to your beautiful because I am scars...

No scars to your beautiful means that it is not necessary to have plastic/cosmetic surgery to change your beautiful self. That's how I take it.

Thi sson is about being true to yourself and being happy with who you are. YOU BE YOU don't let anyone change you
anonymous Jun 17th, 2017 6:32pm report
I thought she said...
"Those scars say you're beautiful.."
Those arent the words? Cuz i think it makes more sense than
"No scars to your beautiful" what the hell does that mean?

I think this song is talking about being confident, and how some people have so much pressure on them to be perfect that they hurt themselves in many different ways. I really like this song and my friends do as well.

It means that u don't have to change yourself for anyone, just be yourself, have confident in yourself know that are beautiful just the way you are, just the way you look, regardless of what people say or think. YOU ARE A STAR AND YOU ARE BEAUTIFUL.

This song is about the way most girls think, and how they shouldn't think that way. It's telling you to just believe your beautiful, and you shouldn't change a thing. Because everyone is beautiful, inside and out.Nobody can tell you what to think of yourself, and how you look. You stay you, and always be yourself.

But I want to know what the term "Scars to your beautiful" means... It makes no sense.
