"Just the Way You Are" as written by Khalil Walton, Philip Lawrence, Bruno Mars, Ari Levine and Khari Cain....
Oh, her eyes, her eyes make the stars look like they're not shinin'
Her hair, her hair falls perfectly without her trying
She's so beautiful and I tell her everyday
Yeah, I know, I know when I compliment her she won't believe me
And it's so, it's so sad to think that she don't see what I see
But every time she asks me "Do I look okay? "
I say

When I see your face
There's not a thing that I would change 'cause you're amazing
Just the way you are
And when you smile
The whole world stops and stares for a while
'Cause girl you're amazing
Just the way you are
Yeah

Her lips, her lips, I could kiss them all day if she'd let me
Her laugh, her laugh she hates but I think it's so sexy
She's so beautiful, and I tell her everyday

Oh you know, you know, you know I'd never ask you to change
If perfect's what you're searching for then just stay the same
So don't even bother asking if you look okay, you know I'll say

When I see your face
There's not a thing that I would change
'Cause you're amazing
Just the way you are
And when you smile
The whole world stops and stares for a while
'Cause girl you're amazing
Just the way you are

The way you are
The way you are
Girl you're amazing
Just the way you are

When I see your face
There's not a thing that I would change
'Cause you're amazing
Just the way you are
And when you smile
The whole world stops and stares for a while
'Cause girl you're amazing
Just the way you are

Yeah

    MemoryMy Girl(friend) knows I don't like today's music and don't listen to the radio at all. We have known eachother for three years and she was my first friend when I moved to another state, and we always wanted to be a couple but neither of is knew it/had the guts to ask eachother. I wasn't very social, and all I knew growing up was how to treat a girl and make a girl happy based on The Beatles' songs and what my father (R.I.P.) has taught me.

    My girl and I have been much closer lately and all I can really say when I'm with her are compliments, how much I love her, and how she is perfect. I never knew this song existed until just two days ago when we were having a slight argument over texting, she texts me saying that this song reminds her of me.

    "Just The Way You Are" - had me thinking it was a song about being a jerk and I was about ready to get mad at her. Once I listened to it, I fell in love with her. It made me so happy to realize that she actually DOES listen to me when I talk to her about compliment her enough to have a song dedicated to her. The best part is that every lyric in this song, I have said to my girl, before even knowing this song was released.

    Great song to dedicate to your girl, especially if you live up to the lyrics; even better if your girl dedicates this song to the way you act.

    I'm sixteen.

    General CommentOne thing I might add to what people have said is that it's apparent that the girl is self conscious about how she looks. The guy is trying to convince her that she is fine the way she is. I know this is the case with a lot of girls out there that I have talked with. Always wondering and thinking that they are too fat, too tall, not pretty enough, hair not done well enough, not enough make-up, etc. Many times us guys try to tell them that they do look pretty they way they are, but the self conscious feeling still yells louder than the guys' words and she ends up not fully believing him. That's one reason why this song is beautiful because its a story of what happens all the time.

    Adding to everyone else, I absolutely love this song. When I get into a relationship, this song will be my theme song. Its the sweetest romance song that I've heard.

    General Commentgirls are always saying they want guys to sing this song to them, but if they did they'd accuse them of lying, but it's a great song
