I Wish I Were Beautiful

I wish I were beautiful
So I’d know what to do
For in this world of fame and glitter
Only the beautiful come through

I would finally find my place
Between the ones blessed and the ones manmade
I’d sell my soul for a million dollar face
Even though I know that face will one day fade

I would be flocked by friends on every side
And as far as the eyes can see
All of them friends with my fair skin and shiny green eyes
And none of them friends with me

I’d not need to find love for it would find me
One look at my face and he’d be tempted to sin
He wouldn’t care what I am or who I could be
It was the shell he cared about, not what lay within

I’d be the talk of the town and the pride of my home
“This is the pretty one”, they’d beam as bright as day
Their words masked and plated with silver and chrome
“The rest of them are ugly” is what they meant to say

How I wish I were beautiful
So life were easier and I mattered to you
For in this world of dolls and mannequins,
Only the beautiful come through
