"Don't Waste The Pretty" as written by Heather Morgan and Joanna Janet....
Dust it off, break it down
Get to what we're talking about
To what we're talking about
Don't try and hide it now
You can't keep working it out
You can't keep working it out

See how he's putting you down
I just can't be around
What you doing this for?
'Cause lightning is starting to fade off
Don't let it get away
Girl, you're worth so much more

Don't waste the pretty on him
Don't waste the pretty on pain
When it gets too much to take, don't give it away
Don't waste the pretty on life
Soon it's gonna fly on by
Whatever way you gotta say it
Don't waste the pretty, yeah

Sit back and breathe it in
Look at how lucky we are
Just look how lucky we are
This life I'm living in
Well, you've gotta follow your heart
So you know I'm never too far

Away from the pain in your eyes
I can see your disguise
But it's not too late
'Cause I know this pain can't be around
Don't be scared, work it out
There's no way to say ?

Don't waste the pretty on him
Don't waste the pretty on pain
When it gets too much to take, don't give it away
Don't waste the pretty on life
Soon it's gonna fly on by
Whatever way you gotta say it
Don't waste the pretty, yeah

And just in case you need what I need
Girl you're beautiful, beautiful, beautiful
And every boy will send you heartache
'Cause you're beautiful, beautiful, beautiful, yeah

Don't waste the pretty on him
Don't waste the pretty on pain
When it gets too much to take, don't give it away
Don't waste the pretty on life
Soon it's gonna fly on by
Whatever way you gotta say it
Don't waste the pretty, yeah

    My InterpretationThis song has amazing vocals. At the end, when Allison wails and reaches high notes..it just blows you away. What a talented young lady. I really hope she goes far. I have her album, and honestly...there is not one bad/boring song on there! I love each and every one of them.

    The song is pretty self-explantory. Allison's telling girls to not waste their time on something that isn't worth it. An example used..is a guy. If the guy doesn't love/like you back or isn't treating you correctly, don't waste time on him. Spend time on something more important to you. "Don't waste the pretty on him. Don't waste the pretty on pain. When it gets too much to take, don't give it away. Don't waste the pretty on life, 'cause soon it's gonna fly on by" basically states this. I love the end where she sings "And just in case you need reminding, well you're beautiful, beautiful, beautiful. And there ain't no use in your heartache 'cause your beautiful, beautiful, beautiful". It's a wonderful message to any teenager or adult actually.
