QUIET

SING! by Pentatonix

It doesn't matter if your days are long (sing)
It doesn't matter if your night's gone wrong (sing)
Just grab your hands and stomp your feet and sing it (whoa, sing)
It doesn't matter if he let you go (sing)
It doesn't matter if she hurt you so (sing)
Get up and dance, just feel that beat and sing it (whoa, sing)

I don't know what you've been told
But music make you lose control

Sing, sing, sing, sing
Sing it out as hard as you can
Make 'em hear from L.A. to japan
Don't let 'em bring you down
This is how we do it now
Go and roll them windows down and
Sing, sing, sing, sing
Sing it with your hands in the sky
Light it up like it's the 4th of July
Don't let 'em bring you down
You know what I'm talking 'bout
A little bit louder now

It doesn't matter if you're way off track (sing)
Feel like you're headed for a heart attack (sing)
Just raise your voice and bring the noise and sing it (whoa, sing)
Sing for your mama, sing for your daughter (sing)
Sing for you sisters, misters, best friends, brother (sing)

'Cause I don't know what you've been told
But music make you lose control (sing)

CHORUS

Sing it for your mama, ay
Sing it for your papa, ay
Sing it for the whole world
For your boy or girl, for your number one fan
K.O. on the beat, okay
I'm a human 808
Go ahead, go and sing it , don't talk
'Cause the beat won't stop
No way, way, way, way

CHORUS

Let me hear you say

 

SCARS TO YOUR BEAUTIFUL

VERSE 1
She just wants to be beautiful
She goes unnoticed, she knows no limits,
She craves attention, she praises an image,
She prays to be sculpted by the sculptor
Oh she don't see the light that's shining
Deeper than the eyes can find it
Maybe we have made her blind
So she tries to cover up her pain, and cut her woes away
'Cause covergirls don't cry after their face is made

CHORUS
But there's a hope that's waiting for you in the dark
You should know you're beautiful just the way you are
And you don't have to change a thing
The world could change its heart
No scars to your beautiful, we're stars and we're beautiful
Oh-oh, oh-oh-oh, oh-oh-oh-oh, oh-oh-oh
And you don't have to change a thing
The world could change its heart
No scars to your beautiful, we're stars and we're beautiful

VERSE 2
She has dreams to be an envy, so she's starving
You know, "Covergirls eat nothing."
She says, "Beauty is pain and there's beauty in everything."
"What's a little bit of hunger?"
"I could go a little while longer," she fades away
She don't see her perfect, she don't understand she's worth it
Or that beauty goes deeper than the surface
Ah oh, ah ah oh,
So to all the girls that's hurting
Let me be your mirror, help you see a little bit clearer
The light that shines within

CHORUS

BRIDGE
No better you than the you that you are
(no better you than the you that you are)
No better life than the life we're living
(no better life than the life we're living)
No better time for your shine, you're a star
(no better time for your shine, you're a star)
Oh, you're beautiful, oh, you're beautiful


CHORUS
 

LETTER FROM A GIRL....

 

In my heart, there are hopes and dreams, and all different beautiful things. In my heart, there’s a sunrise glowing and a warmth that holds me there. And I think of God’s beauty in the world all around, in the clouds that roll across the sky, in the clean smell of the rain and the colors of the fall, and it makes me happy and I wish that others saw it too.

If you love your children, are you sure they know? Have you said the words out loud? We want to hear them! Are you listening with your heart when they’re sharing theirs? Have you given us a chance to make you proud?

Do you know who I am? Do you really know?
‘Cause you can’t tell by looking at me that underneath all this happiness inside there’s a part of me nobody sees.
IwonderwhoIam. WhoamI?
I wonder who I’ll be. Who will I be?
What will my life become?

There are just so many questions inside me.

Am I good enough? Am I pretty enough?
Can I learn not to care what others think?
Can I make a difference in someone else’s life, and Can others see God’s love in me?
