All the Beautiful People

To all the confused girls,
this is for you. With love.


all the beautiful people were standing in a line
I saw you there, on the side, helping them along.
you are the truly beautiful one.

they don't even notice you,
the world doesn't seem to care.
why am I the only one who sees you?

all the beautiful people can keep on walking,
the ones like you are the ones I'm looking for.
the inner beauty, the spirit fire, these are your gifts.

don't try to become a beautiful person,
you are more beautiful than they ever can be.
don't let them crush you, kill you with their words.
look for the smile, coming from me.

for you are the truly beautiful people,
and I am always here for you.
