Just be yourself for you.
You don't have to be someone you're not, you see.
It would be false, it wouldn't be true,
if I wanted you to be another just for me.

God made us all the way we look,
and put something beautiful inside, where it counts.
We all judge the cover of the book,
and say that it's not worth it's weight, not an ounce.

Someone else comes along,
you sweep them away, made them sing a happy song.
They see your heart of pure gold,
not your body that grows old.

They read your story to the end,
wishing that they could start again.
Somewhere out there, they walk through hell,

find you their heaven, and all is well!!!
