Bruno Mars: Just the Way You Are Meaning
Just the Way You Are Lyrics
Make the stars look like they're not shining
Her hair, her hair
Falls perfectly without her trying
She's so beautiful
And I tell her every day
Yeah I know, I know
When I compliment her
She wont believe me

I think this song is about how every girl is beautiful the way she is and she doesn't need to change herself for the world. The guy who loves her thinks she is perfect in her own way and she doesn't have to worry about the tiny flaws she has. The girl thinks that she is a nobody and is lacking love because many guys out there love a girl for her beauty and she wants real love. The boy is giving it to her and saying she doesn't have to worry because he is not like others but she doesn't trust him. By the end of the song the girl feels better about herself because of the boys love.❤

I think it means no matter who you are or what you look like you are just you and no one can change that.... that song is beautiful.

This song is about a guy who loves his girlfriend very much. He thinks she doesn't need make-up to make her beautiful because she already is. He thinks she's so beautiful that "the world stops and stares for a while."

Okay, many people are writing meaning on what it means to THEM or what they THINK it means. But the true meaning behind the song was that he was telling someone who should have change, to to change. The person who should have changed was Bruno's ex wife who was stealing his money for YEARS. He for some time didn't know of it, and during that time of period he wrote "Just the Way Your Are" and thought it was the perfect song dedicated to his wife. Though later he wanted to take his song down when he had figured out of the bad things she was doing, he wanted to take down his song. But his manager told him to let it be because the song was such a great hit. So I guess you could say that some people SHOULD change if what they are doing is bad. SO the real meaning is that you shouldn't change if it isn't necessary.

I think this song is about how a girl is just being herself and even if you are not wearing makeup you are still pretty and no one can't change that. But the most important thing is to be yourself because the guy you love,he wants you to see your true colors.

This is not my interpretation but is very special to me and my nephew that I adopted when he was six. His mom passed away from addiction and this song reminds him of her every time he hears it. It helps him to remember her as “beautiful “ even though she had lost most of her hair and teeth and weighed only 60 lbs at the time of her death. It’s been 8 years now and this song still helps him smile thinking of her.❤️

when I was with my friend I wrote it with Australian group James Morrison and Toby Gad, they wrote something that had to do with Bruno mars song just the way you are. It has more party vibe and rocking more music me and Ben are going to our church at Blacksburg, and write it at my church and then we had a record meeting with James Morrison and Toby Gad. Then they have a party vibe song and it’s like catchy and hooks even though we asked him to be on the record, Bruno Mars is so amazing and talented he wanted to do a song with me and Ben. He’s sweet as he can be, he would asked me if we could do a duet I couldn’t say no but I said yes, Bruno brought me flowers for me and Ben is holding them and then I can sing with him.

I love that song because when Bruno Mars said, just the way you are, because if the lines says, cause your amazing just the way you are, it makes me happy, and shaking. Because I loved Bruno he’s my hero, because he’s incredible singer I want to work with. Because I’m going to Los Angeles about couple weeks, and then I’ll be seeing guitars what my cousin Andrew want to choose, I’ll just lay it on the chair. And choose the guitar he wants. Then I would ask a fellow musician to help Andrew out with his guitar cords.
This song is about a man who is completely and totally in love with a girl, and though she may return his feelings, she does not see what he finds appealing in her. This song is a ballad to her, this girl, who he cares so much for, almost like proving he truly does love her with all he has. He explains the things the may not like he thinks are some of her best qualities.
(Note: Someone sang this song to me and this is only my interpretation from that experience)

This song simply means love. A love which bruno gave to his girl. The girl use to think her self inperfwct with many problems but bruno just love the way she is. He maked the girl happy at the end saying her that he loves her just the way she is. He does not want anychange in her cause he thinks she is perfect. He really loves her and he deserves her as everything. He loves her alot.

this song is about a girl who is beautiful but she is comparing herself to all the super models have made the world think that everyone should be this size and shape and should have their hair this way. But in reality every on is their own kind of beautiful. Overall the song is about low self esteem in Wemen.

♥️♥️♥️This song can be interpreted as being beautiful and dedicated to all the young girls/teens out there who believe they are not good enough for anyone. Bruno Mars has done an outstanding job of sending the message that even if you think no one will take notice of you... there will always be that one person who's got your back even if you don't know it.♥️♥️♥️

It is a song about how no matter what she thinks, he loves her and nothing, no flaw at all, can change that. (PS This song is perfect for my crush)

He loves her even if she doesn't wear makeup buys fancy clothes. He will be there for her anytime.

The song is saying about no matter what the girl thinks about herself. The guy who loves her, loves her no matter what flaws and all. Its more like a love story.
