You're insecure,
Don't know what for,
You're turning heads when you walk through the door,
Don't need make-up,
To cover up,
Being the way that you are is enough,
Everyone else in the room can see it,
Everyone else but you,

Baby, you light up my world like nobody else.
The way that you flip your hair gets me overwhelmed
But when you smile at the ground it ain't hard to tell,
You don't know oh oh,
You don't know you're beautiful,
That's what makes you beautiful.

So girl come on,
You got it wrong,
To prove I'm right,
I put it in a song,
I don't know why,
You're being shy,
And turn away when I look into your eyes,
Everyone else in the room can see it,
Everyone else but you,

Baby you light up my world like nobody else,
The way that you flip your hair gets me overwhelmed,
But when you smile at the ground it ain't hard to tell,
You don't know,
Oh oh,
You don't know you're beautiful oh oh,
That's what makes you beautiful,
That's what makes you beautiful,

Baby, you light up my world like nobody else.
The way that you flip your hair gets me overwhelmed
But when you smile at the ground it ain't hard to tell,
You don't know oh oh,
You don't know you're beautiful,
That's what makes you beautiful.
Oh, that's what makes you beautiful.

If only you saw what I can see,
You'll understand why I want you so desperately,
Right now I'm looking at you and I can't believe,
You don't know,
Oh oh,
You don't know you're beautiful,
You don't know you're beautiful,
And that's what makes you beautiful.

    What makes you beautiful is about a girl who captures the hearts of the band because she is so beautiful but she dosnt realize it. The band chases her around connvincing her she is pretty.

    This song shows you that dont be insecure but dont brag about your beauty

    It's about the girl who doesn't even know that she had a beautiful appearance. Just being who she is, many got admired in her simply way of caring herself. She captured the hearts of the young men, simple enough yet that what makes her beautiful.

    It's the innocence that makes a woman beautiful, she need not to boast that she's beautiful,she need not to wear makeup or anything to be pretty. She is beautiful period.

    It's about a man letting a girl feel that she stands best among all other..
    That she needs not to be insecure for she captivates a mans heart and a mans attention just by merely presenting her beauty
