My Sunday Song – “Scars To Your Beautiful” by Alessia Cara

My Sunday Song #13 is by Alessia Cara called “Scars to Your Beautiful”.  The song is off her latest album titled ‘Know It All’.  This choice was inspired by my youngest daughter.  She has to listen to this song every morning on the way to school.  I don’t know if she understands the meaning or maybe she does and this is her anthem to get her emotionally ready for tackling school.  Either way, it is a such an inspiring song for women and even men.

The song is about Body Image.  If people don’t like they way you look, that is their problem not yours.  The people’s perception of beauty needs to change because you are who you are and you are BEAUTIFUL!!  Remember…God made you they way He wanted to make you and that in itself is beautiful.

“Scars To Your Beautiful”

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 cover girls 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 its heart
No scars to your beautiful, we’re stars and we’re beautiful
Oh-oh, oh-oh
And you don’t have to change a thing, yhe world could change its 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
Oh, 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 its heart
No scars to your beautiful, we’re stars and we’re beautiful

Oh-oh, oh-oh
And you don’t have to change a thing, the world could change its 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 beautiful

And 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 its heart
No scars to your beautiful, we’re stars and we’re beautiful
Oh-oh, oh-oh
And you don’t have to change a thing, the world could change its heart
No scars to your beautiful, we’re stars and we’re beautiful

  1. The funny thing is…the people who sing the most about ‘body image’ tend to be those who have nothing to worry about. They already know that they look good. I don’t “feel” that the singer really believes the words of the song, since she isn’t one who has ever really questioned her looks…but, that’s just my $0.02 about female singers in this day and age.

    1. For the most part, I would say you are correct. There might a few exceptions. I don’t know how much input she had on the writing. I like mostly because my daughter enjoys it and at least it is a positive message for her.
