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...

    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 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.

    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.

    This is song is really amazing. And I know nobody will read this let alone star this. But here we go.

    When I was fourteen, everyone told me to do my hair fancy, put on makeup, wear dresses instead of jeans, and go to tea party’s and stuff like that. Instead, I cut my hair short, wore t -shirts and jeans, and played sports. They weren’t very happy with that.

    So I guess what this song must mean is that, society presses girls into doing what they think is appropriate. But even if you decide you like dresses and makeup, or sports and t-shirts. You are beautiful just the way you are and if anything should change, it’s the way society works.

    Again, I know nobody will like this or read it. But if you do read it, if you agree, please rate it. And if you don’t agree, please post your opinion. I’d love to see it.

    There are so many girls that starve themselves, so many girls that strive to be perfect that they forget the meaning of being yourself.
    They think you need makeup, tight clothing, revealing clothing, to be perfect, to look pretty. Even though all they need is themselves.
    All the girls want to be beautiful. The specific girl that strives to be the prettiest. She doesn't understand that she's already perfect. She tries to cover her pain, to be perfect, because covergirls don't cry.
    She's singing about being beautiful in your own unique way. Nobodies perfect. No one ever will be. Which is why you have to be yourself. You don't have to change. It's the world that's messed up.
    There's so many girls that don't understand that not eating, or just trying to be perfect hurts you more than it helps you. Starving yourself or skipping meals to get skinnier isn't healthy. You lose nutrients and could end up in the hospital. People worry.
    It doesn't make sense to try and fix yourself when what needs fixing is the world.

    I have always liked to believe this song means no matter what you look like you are beautiful, you dont need to wear makeup, or get plastic surgery. just be you, you are beautiful just the way you are.

    This song is about a girl who is trying to meet the societal standard of beauty and is failing to see that she is fine the way she is

    I love this song because I can relate to it in many ways. As the song quotes in different ways, I can see it referencing different things like Anorexia and Self-Harm. Having done both of those things, I think that I can see myself; and for me, this song can touch me in a few different ways. I just tink this song can touch people, and it makes me feel more happy listening to it.

    This song is about how women and girls everywhere don't need to follow society's rules or regulations or whatever. It tells every girl that she is perfect no matter what she looks like, how she acts, what she thinks of herself, or what others think of her. Alessia wants girls to know that it's okay to be different and that we don't have to fit into this mold that our world expects us to have as our goal. We don't have to listen to the idiocy of our stupid world because society doesn't know what it's like to have an eating disorder because someone was told that they're fat. Society doesn't know what it's like to put on loads of makeup and get all the newest and trendiest clothes just to fit in. Just be your fcking self cause that's the most beautiful part of you love you all remember who you are and what you stand for <333

    My cousin is having a hard time right now. I bet you can imagine what I mean. Anyways, whenever I even think of this song it reminds me of her. She doesm't realize her own inner beauty, her own strength, and the fact that you don't have to look or be perfect. Just be yourself. And the world shouldn't have the power to change you. The world needs accept you as you are, not the other way around.

    I think that this song is about inner buety and I really relate to this song, while I don't starve myself I always compare myself to other teens and I am kind of socially awkward so when I see other 15 year olds I start comparinf myself to them and I sometimes put on makeup but after I heard this song I stopped using makeup anytime I went to a friends house.

    This song centers around a girl who is told by everyone that's she's not pretty enough and needs to change herself. For whatever reason, she listens to them, and the results aren't at all good for her.
    What Cara is telling this girl is that she doesn't need other people's approval to be beautiful. The beauty that counts comes from the inside.

    every girl should have their freedom at least

    This art is not all about beauty, it connotes something you've lost in you, more like the confidence you lost in yourself, dreams, aspirations, hope and beauty to your fears and urge to belong ....
    This song is a saving grace to the womenfolk who wrestle with the thrusting urge to fit-in where they were tossed away like chaff. It urges women to be strong, confident, free,active and boundless. It urges women to be who they wanna be without looking into the world's mirror ...
    It is my inspiration
