Aloe Blacc - I'm Beautiful

Sometimes people say things
that they don't really mean.
They just might call you names
to lift their _1_
But soon enough, they'll realize
that it'll never work.
Because inside they're trying to hide
how much they really _2_

But as long as you know who you are
and what you're about
Nothing they say can shake your _3_
and make you doubt
The beauty you have in you
and when they give _4_
you can tell them like this.

Say, I'm beautiful and _5_
and I think it's about time to tell you this.
I'm gonna be the best me
that I know how to be.

One day you learn how much it means
to _6_ in yourself.
So take these words and share these words
to help somebody else.

You never know. Anything's _7_
You just might make a friend.
So when they try to make you cry
tell them again and again.

Say it like this- I'm beautiful and spiritual
and I think it's about time to tell you this.
I'm gonna be the best me
that I know how to be.
