I lay down, turn my head around
To try to see the world from a different perspective
See love’s rough edges from a different perspective
I close my eyes, rearrange my mind
To try to prevent myself from becoming too introspective

I used to feel so unwelcome in my own skin
But baby you make me beautiful
You make me beautiful

I’ve been here before, but only in a dream
I’ve felt happiness like this before, but only in moments fleeting
So now I’m trying to convince myself
I’m only momentarily blue
Trying to keep myself all
Tangled up with you

I analyze, hypothesize, and realize
If I can be lovely for you
Maybe I could be lovely for me too
I open my heart, stand upside down to let fall out
All the strangers in me that are strangers to you

You make me feel so unwelcome in my own skin
But baby you make me beautiful
You make me beautiful

I’ve seen this time of year before, but not while in love
It’s like the difference between the view from the ground, and the view from above
So now I’m trying to convince myself
I’m only momentarily blue
Trying to keep myself all
Tangled up with you
