"Beneath Your Beautiful" as written by Mike Posner, Timothy Mckenzie and Emeli Sande....
You tell all the boys "No"
Makes you feel good, yeah.
I know you're out of my league
But that won't scare me away, oh, no

You've carried on so long,
You couldn't stop if you tried it.
You've built your wall so high
That no one could climb it,
But I'm gonna try.

Would you let me see beneath your beautiful?
Would you let me see beneath your perfect?
Take it off now, girl, take it off now, girl
I wanna see inside
Would you let me see beneath your beautiful tonight?

You let all the girls go
Makes you feel good, don't it?
Behind your Broadway show
I heard a boy say, "Please, don't hurt me"

You've carried on so long
You couldn't stop if you tried it.
You've built your wall so high
That no one could climb it.
But I'm gonna try

Would you let me see beneath your beautiful?
Would you let me see beneath your perfect?
Take it off now, boy, take it off now, boy
I wanna see inside
Would you let me see beneath your beautiful tonight, oh, tonight?

See beneath, see beneath,
I
Tonight
I

I'm gonna climb on top your ivory tower
I'll hold your hand and then we'll jump right out
We'll be falling, falling but that's OK
'Cause I'll be right here
I just wanna know

Would you let me see beneath your beautiful?
Would you let me see beneath your perfect?
Take it off now, girl, take it off now, girl
'Cause I wanna see inside
Would you let me see beneath your beautiful tonight, oh, oh, oh, tonight?
See beneath your beautiful, oh, tonight.
We ain't perfect, we ain't perfect, no.
Would you let me see beneath your beautiful tonight?

    My InterpretationYou tell all the boys no
    Makes you feel good yeah
    --She's too good for anyone, she never lets any guy in, it makes her feel in
    power.Not only she feels power but she believes she will get hurt by accepting love and so she wants to stay away from it.

    The guy however,sees beyond her beauty, he sees the inner beauty and no matter how much difficult it is to let any guy in,he wants to try cause he sees something special in that girl. There's a special connection, he feels more than being attracted to her from her looks. "Take it off now girl,i wanna see inside"
    So that guy begs the girl to show him how she really is like cause he really believes she's even more perfect than what she looks like.

    I think the girl was being hurt in the past by someone who meant the world to her and she lost her faith in love after having her heart broken. She would rather stand out and hurt other than her own self, that makes her feel better, boosting her confidence cause she's a really insecure girl. She likes attracting guys, but her inner beauty is the one she hides away which the guy finds the most beautiful. So he feels the need to show her real love cause as I said there's a special something about the girl which he never felt before.

    General Commentthis song means that they can read each other and that they can see that each others hard shell and can really see that each other has been hurt and needs someone (each other) and that no one will truly understand this when they experience it and can really read between the lines. the title "beneath your beautiful" just shows that they can read each other and understand that they are truly in love with each other and need each other you look the lyrics and just tear up because of how much you can really relate.
