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

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
