"That's Why You're Beautiful" as written by Beyonce Gisselle Knowles, Andrew Hay and James Fauntleroy....
Diamonds used to be coal
Look young 'cause they got soul
That's why they're beautiful
And my heart used to be cold
'Til your hands laid on my soul
Baby, that's why you're beautiful

I'm not wondering why
The sky's blue, that's not my business
All I know is I
Look up and tell myself
Be patient, love, that could be us

The lovers used to make love
And died just to give us
Their piece of the beautiful
Remember when we made love?
Love
Wasn't it beautiful?

Don't ask me why
The sky's blue, that's not my business
All I know is I
Look up and tell myself
Be patient, love (be patient, love)
That could be us (that could be us)

Diamonds used to be coal
Look young 'cause they got soul (got soul)
And my heart used to be cold (be cold)
'Til your hands laid on my soul
Somebody's got to stay deep in love
That could be us
That's why we're beautiful
That's why you're beautiful (ooh)

Why, oh why, why
That's why you're beautiful
That's why you're beautiful
That's why you're beautiful

    General Commentthis song is her mnost deepest song on the i am..album and very different from the rest of her songs. Her lyrics are very impressive compared to her mediocre lyrics. she shows growth in this song..but not much in the album as far as lyrics go..she should have other people write for her.

    General CommentPersonally I think her songs are amazing, this album is my fave one shes ever done. I think shes grown alot, I think writing her own stuff makes it more personal, and much more easy for people to really feel what she felt when she wrote this.

    Shes clearly singing about all the beautiful things in the world and referring to her and her ex/partner/lover and saying that there love was just as pure as that. Dont ask me why the sky is blue thats not my business.

    I think the song is about the love she had with this person.
