lyrics

You call yourself a fake in the morning
because you don't have the energy to shave
And at night you call yourself a fake again
when you feel the name hanging 'round your neck
And again when you're naked in the mirror
because you don't have the energy to cry

And you ask
Who am I to say who I am?
Who am I to say who I am?
Who am I, who am I?

But you were always beautiful
If you look at the pictures of yourself from the past you'll see that the light in your eyes was there even when it was hidden
You were always beautiful
Even when the world tried to suppress the person you always should have known that you were

All those years of denial have torn you apart
They've left you battered, picked away at your heart
And now that you've found your way out
of this battle you've fought so long
All those people who called you a woman as a joke
tell you they know better, tell you you're wrong

You were always beautiful
If you look at the pictures of yourself from the past you'll see that the light in your eyes was there even when it was hidden
You were always beautiful
Even when the world tried to suppress the person you always should have known that you were
You were always beautiful
and I will never let them forget that
You were always beautiful
and your truth will always be true
