What Would You Say?

There is a song out there by Kellie Pickler. The song is called Don't You Know You're Beautiful and every time I think about it I think about the former me. The teenager struggling to fit in and the girl in her early twenties staying in a relationship she wasn't happy in because she thought it was all she could get.

I wish I could go back and play this song for that young woman and let her know that she would be ok and that she was beautiful just the way she was.

What song would you play for younger self??

Kellie Pickler - Don't You Know You're Beautiful Lyrics


Hey little girl with your tangled hair, your tattered clothes,
You're fifteen and you're about to bloom just like a rose.

You’re wishing that you had designer jeans
Like the ones you see in magazines.

Now I know you’d give anything just to fit in
But your worth ain't on a price tag, it comes from within.

Don’t you know you’re beautiful?
Don’t you know you’re beautiful?
Don’t you know you’re beautiful?
Just the way you are!

Hey there little homecoming queen in that back seat.
I’ll bet his brown eyes are promising you everything!

And I know you want to be just like your friends,
But he’ll still love you if you don’t give in.

But if those girls were being honest that have been where you're at,
I’d bet they’d tell you they wish they had their innocence back.

Don’t you know you’re beautiful?
Don’t you know you’re beautiful?
Don’t you know you’re beautiful?
Just the way you are!

So if he left you for a girl that could be your twin
If you were 28 again,

Let him go, let him fly, keep your head up,
Get on with your life!

Don’t you know you’re beautiful?
Don’t you know you’re beautiful?
Don’t you know you’re beautiful?
Just the way you are!

Don’t you know you’re beautiful?
Don’t you know you’re beautiful?
Don’t you know you’re beautiful?
Just the way you are!

Just the way you are!

One of the songs that i tear up on and that makes me think every time I hear it is " I Hope You Dance" i could have used that a long time before it actually came out!
