Could you buy me a day in your life,
When I'm wearing the clothes that you wear,
And could you give me your diamonds for a day,
And just for one day take my place,

So mama says that I am beautiful,
And I am lovely the way that I am,
But if I am so sweet
Why won't life just give me
What you have,
What you have,
What you have.

Or can I get away,
Being you for a day,
Oh, I wonder if I can.
Put me in a box for a little while,
Tomorrow take me out again.
Or am I already as lovely as you,
Are you in my window pane,
Looking back at me saying here I am...

You're beautiful

Could it be that I'm just too afraid
To become who I already am
Or could it be that the life
That was spoken to me
Is it me in my spirit man oh
Mama said touch the sky with your hands
And fly on the wings of the lord
Or could I only believe that it's inside of me
To be free, to be free, to be free

Or could I get away being you for a day
Oh I wonder if I can
Put me in a box for a little while
Tomorrow take me out again
Or am I already as lovely as you
Are you in my window pane
Looking back at me saying here I am

You're beautiful

    I think this is a great song for little girls who become afraid of who they are, for girls who wants to be someone else just for a day, to feel different to feel pretty to be that popluar girl that everyone wants to be.
