She don't
| [F] see... her perfect, she don't | [Am] understand she's worth it or that |
| [F] beauty goes deeper than the surface, oh oh | [Am]  Oh oh [G] oh... So to |

There's a
| [F] hope that's waiting for you in the | [Am] dark... you should know you're |
| [F] beautiful just the way you | [Am] are... and [G] you don't have to |
| [F] change a thing the world could change its | [Am] heart... No scars to your |
| [F] beautiful... We're stars and we're | [F] beautiful...

Oh oh | [F] oh    oh oh oh | [Am] oh...

| [F] change a thing the world could change its | [Am] heart... No scars to your |
| [F] beautiful... We're stars and we're | [F] beautiful...

Bridge (Acapella)
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
There's a
| [F] hope that's waiting for you in the | [Am] dark... you should know you're |
| [F] beautiful just the way you | [Am] are... and [G] you don't have to |
| [F] change a thing the world could change its | [Am] heart... No scars to your |
| [F] beautiful... We're stars and we're | [F] beautiful...

Oh oh | [F] oh    oh oh oh | [Am] oh...
Oh oh | [F] oh    oh oh oh | [Am] oh... and [G] you don't have to
