Beneath Your Beautiful - Labrinth



The Experience:
 No one wants to be ugly. But somewhere we are. And we try to hide it, because we don't want them to see, and hurt us. But it's there...and we need someone who knows. Someone who can see beneath our perfect surface and see the hurt within.

Music Video: Emile Sande and Labrinth look out at the listener as they trade places onstage and onscreen, giving us a chance to get beneath the beautiful in their eyes.

The Meaning of Beneath Your Beautiful: No one is perfect. We all wish we were. We even pretend we are. But that's not the real us. Beneath the facade, there are plenty of cracks, maybe even a gaping hole or two. That's the meaning of beneath your beautiful. It takes real courage to open up - we don't want anyone to climb our walls, sneak past our barriers and see beneath our beautiful. But if we don't, they'll never be able to help. They'll never love the real us - just the imaginary beautiful.

Ask Yourself:
 Is there someone who knows the real you? Deep down, the way you really are?



LYRICS:

You tell all the boys no
Makes you feel good yeah
I know you're out of my league
But that won't scare me away no
You've carried on so long
You couldn't stop if you tried it
You've built your wall so high
That no one could climb it
But I'm gonna try

Would you let me see beneath your beautiful
Would you let me see beneath your perfect
Take it off now girl, take it off now girl
I wanna see inside
Would you let me see beneath your beautiful tonight

You let all the girls go
Makes you feel good, don't it?
Behind your Broadway show
I heard a voice say please don't hurt me
You've carried on so long
You couldn't stop if you tried it
You've built your wall so high
That no one could climb it
But I'm gonna try

Would you let me see beneath your beautiful
Would you let me see beneath your perfect
Take it off now boy, take it off now boy
I wanna see inside
Would you let me see beneath your beautiful tonight
Ohhh, Tonight

See beneath, See beneath,
I...Tonight
I...

I'm gonna climb on top of your ivory tower
I'll hold your hand and you'll, you'll jump right out
We'll be falling, falling
But that's okay
Cause I'll be right here
I just wanna know

Would you let me see beneath your beautiful
Would you let me see beneath your perfect
Take it off now girl, take it off now girl
Cause I wanna see inside
Would you let me see beneath your beautiful tonight
Tonight, see beneath your beautiful
Oh tonight, we ain't perfect, we ain't perfect
Would you let me see beneath your beautiful tonight
