Lyrics:

 

Why would you want to be like everyone else?

Be what you want to be, just keep it to yourself

Why should you be pretty, like some concubine?

Ain’t it a pity to make beauty your shrine

and leave your soul behind

Leave your soul behind

Leave your soul behind

 

la de dah dah dah da dah dah

la de dah dah dah da dah dah

 

Who looks in the mirror to see what comes next?

All you can find there is what the light reflects

It can’t show a heart that’s beating up a storm

A soul on fire that refuses to conform

and is busy being born

Busy being born

Busy being born

 

la de dah dah dah da dah dah

la de dah dah dah da dah dah

 

It’s a big, wide world and there’s plenty of room

Just stop listening to those voices of doom

Who says you’re not pretty? Who says you’re not fine?

Don’t they know beauty is what gets left behind

when you live outside the lines

Live outside the lines

Live outside the lines

 

la de dah dah dah da dah dah

la de dah dah dah da day day
