"Cover Girl" as written by Lindy Robbins, Toby Gad and Kendall Schmidt....
I don't know why you always get so insecure
I wish you could see what I see when you're looking in the mirror
And why won't you believe me when I say
That to me you get more beautiful, everyday

When you're looking at the magazines
And thinking that you'll never measure up
You're wrong

'Cause you're my cover, cover girl
I think you're a superstar, yeah you are
Why don't you know
Yeah, you're so pretty that it hurts
It's what's underneath your skin
The beauty that shines within
You're the only one that rocks my world
My cover girl
Oh, my cover girl, oh

You walk in rain-boots on a perfect summer day
Somehow you always see the dark side, when everything's okay
And you wear baggy clothes that camouflage your shape
Whoa, but you know that I love you, just the way you're made
When you're looking at the magazines
And thinking that you're just not good enough
You're so wrong, baby

'Cause you're my cover, cover girl
I think you're a superstar, yeah you are
Why don't you know
Yeah, you're so pretty that it hurts
It's what's underneath your skin
The beauty that shines within
You're the only one that rocks my world
My cover girl

You've got a heart of gold, a perfect original
Wish you would stop being so hard on yourself for once
And when I see that face
I'd try a thousand ways
I would do anything to make you smile

'Cause you're my cover, cover girl
I think you're a superstar, yeah you are
Why don't you know
Yeah, you're so pretty that it hurts
It's what's underneath your skin
The beauty that shines within
You're the only one that rocks my world
My cover girl
Oh whoa oh oh oh, my cover girl
Oh whoa oh oh oh, my cover girl

Whoa oh, my cover girl
Whoa oh, my cover girl

    My InterpretationI read this in my magazine (and it has been said in interviews) that Kendall wrote this song about a girl he used to date.

    This song is about when a girl feels insecure about herself and her boyfriend is trying to tell her how beautiful she really is and that he sees differently then what she sees in the mirror. he is telling her she is beautiful when she doesnt think so.
