Amanda Rogers - This Beauty

When your words
Come too easily for me to believe
And this paint goes on too thinly
To peel away
I will find
A silver lining sometime
Blur my vision
And I'll be fine
And I'll be fine...

From the pages of the magazines
I hate the way they look at me
With every smile and every laugh
There's something I will always lack
And maybe, just maybe
I'm imperfect to me
And I'll be seen

When your words
Run forever in my mind
And those greens
And those blues
Seem too perfect to true
I will light a fire every time
I think to myself
I will be fine
I will be fine

From the pages of the magazines
I hate the way they look at me
With every smile and every laugh
There's something I will always lack
And maybe, just maybe
I'm imperfect to me
And I'll be seen

And I'll go home
I will be
And I'll be strong for showing me

This beauty is not clear to me
This beauty is not clear to me
To me, to me, to me...
To me, to me, to me...

From the pages of the magazines
I hate the way they look at me
With every smile and every laugh
There's something I will always lack
And maybe, just maybe
I'm imperfect to me
And I'll be seen

From the pages of the magazines
I hate the way they look at me
With every smile and every laugh
There's something I will always lack
And maybe, just maybe
This beauty will be clearer to me
To me, to me, to me...

    General CommentAmanda Rogers and Jupiter Sunrise were heaven together... I know there comes a time for all to part ways, but by golly, I LOVE THEM, and miss them dearly... JS pushes onward and I have high hopes for the evolution of the band and their music.

    This song has a beautiful melody... it has that feeling I believe we've all had... feeling a bit unsure of ourselves but sure of who we really are at the same time... I think its about finding the courage to dig into the truth of who we are... and that is beautiful.

    peace and love.

    General CommentIt must be pretty scary when so many people tell you they like your beauty.
    I think it is about not seeing what others see in you, though I think we can admire others' beauty without crossing the line.

    General CommentNope. It's about feeling one does not measure up to others. The beauty ideal (for women at least) is found w/in the pages of fashion magazines, yet we so often forget that these women are paid for their beauty. They are not the norm. They are also professionally dressed and made up (with makeup and hair styles). Some pics are airbrushed to diminish any human 'flaw.' S/he lacks the smiles and laughs due to her insecurity because she can't seem to understand that true beauty is found within...much like the gorgeous wrapping paper we remove from the gift it covers. It's not the paper we keep around and admire. It's what's inside that paper that has substance. (This is not to say that beautiful women/men cannot be bright; warm; intelligent, etc...) Some of us never see our beauty (our worth) because we have been hoodwinked by society's idea of beauty and priority.
