Scars To Your Beautiful, Alessia Cara

"Scars To Your Beautiful" is yet again another amazing piece of song created by Canadian singer-songwriter Alessia Cara for her debut studio album "Know-It-All". It was released on as her third single from the same album. Written by Cara herself along with Warren Felder, Coleridge Tillman and Andrew Wansel, Alessia states that this song talks about body image. While it is mainly targeting on fellow women, she thinks that men can relate to this song as well.

"I wanted to do this kind of video for a very long time. Since we had this song — and since we knew it was going to be a single — I had this vision of many different cinematic shots of different kinds of people. I wanted all kinds of people — young, old, whatever their situation, whether it's visible scars, non-visible scars — just a bunch of different women, and there are some men in there as well because it can reach out to guys too. But I wanted real shots of real people telling their stories, and showing the story through little vignettes." -Alessia Cara in Cosmopolitan interview.

The music video for this song features cancer survivors, transgenders, racial minorities and others who open out about their insecurities and flaws. In my opinion, this is a great song where it urges people to embrace themselves and more importantly, to accept themselves as who they are and love themselves. What do you think of "Scars To Your Beautiful"? Let me know in the comment box below and watch the music video below. Till then, au revoir!


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 have made her blind
So she tries to cover up her pain, and cut her woes away
Cause covergirls don't cry, after their face is made

But there's a hope that's waiting for you in the dark
You should know you're beautiful just the way you are
And you don't have to change a thing
The world could change it's heart
No scars to your beautiful, we're stars and we're beautiful
Oh-oh, oh-oh-oh, oh-oh-oh-oh, oh-oh-oh
And you don't have to change a thing
The world could change it's heart
No scars to your beautiful, we're stars and we're beautiful

She has dreams to be an envy, so she's starving
You know, "covergirls eat nothing"
She says "beauty is pain and there's beauty in everything"
"What's a little bit of hunger?"
"I could go a little while longer", she fades away
She don't see her perfect, she don't understand she's worth it
Or that beauty goes deeper than the surface
Ah oh, ah ah oh,
So to all the girls that's hurting
Let me be your mirror, help you see a little bit clearer
The light that shines within

There's a hope that's waiting for you in the dark
You should know you're beautiful just the way you are
And you don't have to change a thing
The world could change it's heart
No scars to your beautiful, we're stars and we're beautiful
Oh-oh-oh, oh-oh-oh-oh, oh-oh-oh, oh-oh-oh-oh
And you don't have to change a thing
The world could change it's heart
No scars to your beautiful, we're stars and we're beautiful

No better you than the you that you are
(No better you than the you that you are)
No better life than the life we're living
(No better life than the life we're living)
No better time for your shine, you're a star
(No better time for your shine, you're a star)
Oh, you're beautiful, oh, you're beautifu-u-u-ul

There's a hope that's waiting for you in the dark
You should know you're beautiful just the way you are
And you don't have to change a thing
The world could change it's heart
No scars to your beautiful, we're stars and we're beautiful
Woah-oh-oh-oh, woah-oh-oh-oh, woah-oh-oh-oh-oh-, oh-oh-oh-oh
And you don't have to change a thing
The world could change it's heart
No scars to your beautiful, we're stars and we're beautiful
