How Beautiful You Are

I see you smile in all your pictures – you’re always looking towards the lens.

I haven’t seen you since you left a year ago – I hope I see you here again.

You used to have it all collected – at least it looked that way to me,

but we both know that no one ever really does, just showing what we want for them to see –

but do you know how beautiful you are?

 

I heard you talking about the weather, saying “somewhere far away, it’s not as cold,

and everybody else has been there for a while” and you hope to see that place before you’re old.

But do you know how beautiful you are?

 

Look away from the mirror for a second,

cuz behind the glass, there’s nothing there to lose.

Would you please stop putting on all these impressions

to impress the ones who have a mirror too?

Because I know how beautiful you are.
