More Beautiful You


Little girl, fourteen, flipping through a magazine,
Says she wants to look that way...
But her hair isn't straight, her body isn't fake
And she's always felt overweight

Well little girl, fourteen, I wish that you could see
That beauty is within your heart...
And you were made with such care, your skin, your body, and your hair
Are perfect just the way they are.

There could never be a more beautiful you!
Don't buy the lies, disguises, and hoops they make you jump through
You were made to fill a purpose that only you could do
So there could never be a more beautiful you

Little girl, twenty-one, the things that you've already done
Anything to get ahead
And you say you've got a man, but he's got another plan
Only wants what you will do instead...

Well little girl, twenty-one, you never thought this would come
You starve yourself to play the part
But I can promise you there's a man whose love is true
And he'll treat you like the jewel you are...

There could never be a more beautiful you!
Don't buy the lies, disguises, and hoops they make you jump through
You were made to fill a purpose that only you could do
So there could never be a more beautiful you

So turn around, you're not too far
To back away, be who you are
To change your path, go another way
It's not too late, you can be saved
If you feel depressed, with past regrets
The shameful nights hope to forget
Can disappear, they can all be washed away
By the One who's strong, can right your wrongs
Can rid your fears, dry all your tears
And change the way you look at this big world
He will take your dark distorted view
And with His light He will show you truth
And again you'll see through the eyes of a little girl...

I've been listening to it a little, but they only have like 10 songs they play. I've already memorized all the songs they play on that station.
