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

This is not a 'love song': this is a song about how women can only be valued if they are beautiful. He ignores her personality completely, suggesting that he could not care less about her feelings, or about her as a person. He perpetuates this image of women as bashful, shy, love-starved creatures who must constantly feel bad about their appearance in order to get any affection.
Through merely focusing on her aesthetic features, Mars is making an excellent case for why men like him should not be allowed record deals. 'When she smiles', the whole world does not 'stop and stare for a while' because I very much doubt that anyone other than Bruno Mars is quite shallow enough to do so.
A hint for the future, ladies - if all he compliments is your appearance then you have no business being with him. You deserve better.

It says how the girl he loves has a really low self esteem so he writes a song for her to make her feel better.

It tells the story of Bruno's love for this girl and she doesn't believe that she's what he says she is. Bruno tries to convince her that she's beautiful and by the end of the song I think that he convinces her.

This song means that he thinks the girl is beautiful just the way she is. It's an amazing love song.
