Beautiful

Put down that razor,

 

Put down that knife,

 

What you’re thinking of doing is despised. 

 

Turn off that water,

 

Put down that rope.

 

All you need is some hope.

 

Spit out those pills,

 

Forget those lies, 

 

You’re beautiful.

 

On the inside someone is screaming,

 

Don’t you hear them pleading?

 

Fighting and tearing,

 

Just so you can keep playing. 

 

But, do you not see?

 

That is why you tear apart your skin.

 

So maybe, 

 

Just maybe,

 

You can see that light.

 

So maybe you can be free.

 

But darling, 

 

Oh, darling.

 

Put down that razor,

 

Put down that knife,

 

What you’re thinking of doing is despised. 

 

Turn off that water,

 

Put down that rope,

 

All you need is some hope.

 

Spit out those pills,

 

Forget those lies.

 

Because you’re beautiful.

 

Especially on the inside.

Put down that razor,

 

Put down that knife,

 

What you’re thinking of doing is despised. 

 

Turn off that water,

 

Put down that rope.

 

All you need is some hope.

 

Spit out those pills,

 

Forget those lies, 

 

You’re beautiful.

 

On the inside someone is screaming,

 

Don’t you hear them pleading?

 

Fighting and tearing,

 

Just so you can keep playing. 

 

But, do you not see?

 

That is why you tear apart your skin.

 

So maybe, 

 

Just maybe,

 

You can see that light.

 

So maybe you can be free.

 

But darling, 

 

Oh, darling.

 

Put down that razor,

 

Put down that knife,

 

What you’re thinking of doing is despised. 

 

Turn off that water,

 

Put down that rope,

 

All you need is some hope.

 

Spit out those pills,

 

Forget those lies.

 

Because you’re beautiful.

 

Especially on the inside.
