Cameron Forbes — Beautiful That Way lyrics

So turn this up

She checks her face for traces
And hopes no one could see she cried
Oh, but streams of black betrayed her
Revealing secrets where they dried
You’d better pull yourself together
He wasn’t worth those tidal eyes
But at 17, the age that drama queens that chase home coming kings
How could she really know that having days like these
Are meant to make you stronger
Give your heart some armor
Hold on a little longer

As trails of black mascara started running down your face
And you’re hiding from the world
Hoping they would go away
Just when you thought that you can never shake your tears of gray
He will come and tell you it’s okay
You’re beautiful that way

Now she’s growing older
Watching the years go by alone
Oh, because the guys she’s dated they're nothing more than rolling stones
Her friends get dressed in white
They found the love she’s never know, never known, never known
At 33, When beauty queens chase after their celebrities
She trying to remember having days like these
Are meant to make you stronger
They give your heart some armor
Hold on a little longer

As trails of black mascara started running down your face
And you’re hiding from the world
Hoping they would go away
Just when you thought that you can never shake your tears of gray
He will come and tell you it’s okay
You’re beautiful that way
