lyrics

Has someone ever told you to "Just be yourself"
Then turned back around and tried to make you someone else
Moving our pieces like it was some kind of game
We try so hard to be different but wind up the same
Are we really all just scared
Of judgement and being compared
If you get everything perfect maybe someone will care
‘Cause we know all that really matters is your clothes and your hair

Your worth
Is not an outward thing
It grows inside
And bursts alive with every smile
Like sunbeams

Looking at the ground
Rush past with a frown
Who cares what's on the inside
When you're setting all the trends
A million people watching
And a fortune to spend

There is not a perfect size
Perfect skin or perfect eyes
We're all just fragile humans
Far too eager to please
Who forgot what really mattered
When shaping our societies

Your worth
Is not an outward thing
It grown inside
And bursts alive
With every smile
Like sunbeams

I can see it in your eyes
The one place where no one dares look
They tell your story, they cannot lie
They say much more than any book

Your worth
Is not an outward thing
It grown inside
And bursts alive
With every smile
Like sunbeams
