"Stay Beautiful" as written by Liz Rose and Taylor Swift....
Cory's eyes are like a jungle
He smiles; it's like the radio
He whispers songs into my window
In words that nobody knows
There's pretty girls on every corner
They watch him as he's walking home
Saying, does he know
Will you ever know?

You're beautiful
Every little piece, love; don't you know?
You're really gonna be someone
Ask anyone
And when you find everything you've looked for
I hope your love leads you back to my door
Oh, but if it don't, stay beautiful

Cory finds another way to be
The highlight of my day
I'm taking pictures in my mind
So I can save them for a rainy day
It's hard to make a conversation
When he's taking my breath away
I should say "hey, by the way

You're beautiful
Every little piece, love; don't you know?
You're really gonna be someone
Ask anyone
And when you find everything you've looked for
I hope your love leads you back to my door
Oh, but if it don't, stay beautiful

If you and I are a story
That never gets told
If what you are is a daydream
I'll never get to hold, at least you'll know

You're beautiful
Every little piece, love; don't you know?
You're really gonna be someone
Ask anyone
And when you find everything you've looked for
I hope your love leads you back to my front door
Oh, but if it don't
Will you stay beautiful, beautiful, beautiful
Beautiful, beautiful, beautiful?
Oh, oh, oh

Oh, oh, oh
Oh, but if it don't
Stay beautiful
Stay beautiful
Na, na, na, na, na

    General CommentTaylor Swift on the background to this song: "After hearing my songs, a lot of people ask me, 'How many boyfriends have you HAD?' And I always tell them that more of my songs come from observation than actual experience. In other words, you don't have to date someone to write a song about them. This is a song I wrote about a guy I never dated! Wow, right? Haha. This song is about a guy I thought was cute, and never really talked to him much. But something about him inspired this song, just watching him."

    General Commentthis song to me is about a girl who is so in love with a guy she could or couldn't have. she knows all the little details about him. she thinks he's just beautiful in every single little tiny way. he's always the highlight of her day. and yes i can relate to this song a great deal. =]]]

    General CommentI agree with lucci071.
    She knows he'll go on to do amazing things in his life,
    but somehow wishes that he'll end up back in her life,
    and if not she hopes he'll stay the great person that he is.
    I feel the exact way about my ex. =)

    General Commentok, so Honestly didnt care enough to looke through everyones comments, but my interpretation is because of a recent situation, where the girl really loves or likes the guy, everytime he is anywhere near her, he pretty much makes her day. Even if he can't see it, she knows he's going to be great at whatever he does. As much as she wants to be with him, its more important that he knows he is a beautiful person and going to be great. and most importantly, even if she never sees him again, he needs to stay true to him self. Stay beautiful, don't ever change <3

    My InterpretationI think this is a song about a guy that doesn't know that every girl dreams of being with that is just very sweet. A girl likes him, but for some reason they can never be together. So she lets him go, but hopes that after everything he wants to do is over he'll come back to her.

    General CommentI don't think this song is really about someone leaving. It never really indicates that anyone is leaving- you can take it that way, if you want- but I always thought the song was more about just loving someone, but if you can't be with them one day, you just want them to stay beautiful. But pretty much the same thing, I guess. And in songs, you can take them how you want, anyways. :) Either way, great song.

    General Commentto me i think this song is just about a boy shes grown up with and learned to love as a friend and more, and hopes nothing but the best when he leaves the town, but i think deep inside she hopes that somehow he will walk back into her life.

    General Commentinstead of "I hope your love leads you back to my door,
    oh, but if you don't," its "i hope your LIFE leads you back to my front door but if IT don't" but yea i love this song
