You said
That I wasn't pretty,
So I just believed you
And you said
That I wasn't special
So I lived that way

With critical gazes
And brutal amazement
At how my reflection could be so imperfect
With all of my blemishes
How could somebody want me

(Chorus:)
But God loves ugly
He doesn't see the way I see
Oh, God takes ugly
And turns it into something that is beautiful
Apparently, I'm beautiful
'Cause you love me
Whoa, oh

I tried to clean up the outside
All shiny and new
Worked over time
To thin up and look right
But inside I knew

That deep in the bottom were secrets
I thought I could try to ignore
Old ghost in my corridors
Never get tired of haunting the past that's in me

But God loves ugly
He doesn't see the way I see
Oh God takes ugly
And turns it into something that is beautiful
Apparently I'm beautiful
'Cause you love me

Help me believe
Why you love me
When I know you see
You see everything

Help me believe
Why you love me
When I know you see
Inside and you still say I'm beautiful

You're telling me I'm beautiful
You're screaming out
Oh so beautiful
And I'm finding out
I'm beautiful

You're making me so beautiful
And I can see I'm beautiful
'Cause you love me
Whoa, oh

    this song in my world means that if someone disses you and calls you ugly, they have a hard time understanding the beauty within. god created us in his image. so if someone calls you ugly, they mind as well be calling GOD ugly.

    Jordin Sparks wants everyone to know that no matter what you look like, looks aren't everything - but everyone is beautiful on the inside; and we should all be able to see that in ourselves.
