Scars To Your Beautiful Lyrics

She just wants to be beautiful
She goes unnoticed, she knows no limits
She craves attention, she praises an image
She prays to be sculpted by the sculptor
Oh, she don't see the light that's shining
Deeper than the eyes can find it
Maybe we...

    This song is about inner beauty and the world that asks girls to wear a makeup.

    I am a teenager and I don't wear makeups or care about my hair when almost all of my friends cover up their faces.
    Since I was thirteen all the girls started to care about their appearance and i thought like, when your inside is beautiful why do you have to wear a mask. Now I'm sixteen since the adults continuously asked me to wear makeups I tried some makeups for my first time this year. For me i think it works Real bad and it felt like I'm loosing myself in this world

    This song is telling the girls that they are beautiful as they are and they do not have to change themselves to fit in "ideal beauty"

    As a teenager i sometimes struggle when people around me asks me to wear a makeup or when all my friends except me are covering up their face. But I know that what I really think beautiful is my own face and my heart.
    And I believe the most important thing is to believe that your beautiful isn't somewhere else

    "You should know you're beautiful just the way you are
    And you don't have to change a thing, the world could change its heart

    I had anorexia and listening to this song helped me because it boosted my confidence and made me feel like I mattered, no matter who you are what your problem is "you are beautiful just the way you are".

    This song is to tell girls everywhere that you are one unique snowflake in the billions out there and you are beautiful, no matter what, inside and out. A few other things this songs mentions are that you don't need to starve yourself to be a certain weight. Also, you can cry. When it mentions cutting woes away, I believe this song is talking about self harm, that it's okay to cry; dont cut your beautiful body. Also, Alessia Cara struggles with a condition that involves hair loss and she would always be so self conscious. She knows what it's like to be in a world that expects you to be perfect.

    every girl should have their freedom at least
    they do not need make up for just being beautiful they can show their natural beauty if anyone said you are so ugly it dose not mater what mater is your kindness and your natural beauty etc .

    This art is not all about beauty, it connotes something you've lost in you, more like the confidence you lost in yourself, dreams, aspirations, hope and beauty to your fears and urge to belong ....
    This song is a saving grace to the womenfolk who wrestle with the thrusting urge to fit-in where they were tossed away like chaff. It urges women to be strong, confident, free,active and boundless. It urges women to be who they wanna be without looking into the world's mirror ...
    It is my inspiration

    The lyrics really connect to me sometimes because I don't feel good enough, and the lyrics give a different meaning to beauty and life which is amazing, the world expects girls to cake makeup on their face and feel beautiful instead of feeling beautiful by heart!.

    I think it means you should love yourself just the way you are . " You don't have to change a thing , the world can change it's heart " meaning you don't need to put on makeup , do plastic surgery , eat less etc . The people in the world would have to change to understand the real you . You don't need makeup to make you look beautiful . People hide their real self way to much now and I think it song tells them , they shouldn't be hiding anymore .

    To me this song represent so many people who don't feel beautiful and try to change it. It shows how as a society we make people feel. We feel we have to be perfect we are made to beleive it. We feel we should be liked or loved by everyone. These lyrics show this "attention she praises, an image She prays to be." It mentions covergirls who are generally beautiful and it says "cause cover girls don't cry, After there face is made." which is kind of giving the impresion they are not man-made.
    It make them sound like godesses and that to be beautiful you have to be like them instead of who you really are.

    Everyone seems to be perplexed with the scars to your beautiful, and I am sure that I am not much clearer than the next person. That is the beauty of music...it is a universal language that speaks to a person's individual heart. Can I purpose that she could be talking about the growing pains that occur in everyone's life? Those perceived or not perceived subconscious thoughts that come with living life on earth with other people. People can hurt you both knowingly and unknowingly but your feelings and perceptions will be either not affected, lifted, or scared. Perhaps it is metaphorically speaking. If you are affected, then don't let those thoughts (scars) stay to define your beauty. You have to know you are made perfectly, and you have the power to tell yourself that daily. Learn that now and you have tackled a large part of your confidence. You are beautiful and forget anyone else's interpretation!

    I love all the assuring words of not allowing yourself to be dictated to by other peoples idea of what is perfect. The lyrics are positive in helping us to affirm our own idea's of what is beautiful.
    However...When the lyrics say that there is a "...a hope that's waiting for you in the dark"
    Wonder what she is referring to there? What's in the dark? Time to isolate and self harm and be hurt by yourself, time to block out the pain...or something more sinister? The song and tune are beautiful and just need one word change to change it to a complete positive and motivational anthem

    I finally understand the title! Scars to your beautiful means you won't be any less beautiful if you don't wear makeup, if you let people see your face instead of a mask.

    I think it's a song for everyone on the world that feels like they're never enough, in this song allessia sings about scars, maybe they are cuts. It's an fall back for exhausting times, but don't do it! It is not going to make it happen.

    This is a wonderful song about how you are beautiful just the way you are. The part where it says 'scars to your beautiful' has to interpretations,
    1. Your scars make you who you are, don't hide them
    2. You don't have to scars fron beauty surgery or plastic surgery or eating disorders, to be beautiful.
    Thanks Alessia!
