I Woke Up Beautiful

I was so surprised
first time I caught you staring'
'Cuz the look in your eyes
Said you saw some magic here and
I wondered if you could see
Enough to wanna be near me
But when we speak 
I know you really do hear me
So I've changed my point of view
and it's all because of you

One day I woke up beautiful
with never closin' my eyes 
I woke up beautiful
and now I finally see
Your love has made me believe
I like who I can be 
I woke up beautiful to me

I just can't believe
my luck on the day you found me
Sometimes still can't conceive 
that you'd build your world around me
With you I feel brave, unafraid,
So now O travel my own way
Explore who I am
Forget what anyone else may say
I've changed my point of view
and it's all because of you

One day I woke up beautiful
with never closin' my eyes 
I woke up beautiful
and now I finally see
Your love has made me believe
I like who I can be 
I woke up beautiful to me

When I look in the mirror
I still don't see everything you see
Now the little imperfections
Somehow make me unique
'Cuz when I'm wrapped up in your arms
I know that I'm perfect for you
It's there in the way you look at me 
In the things you say and do
(and because of you)

One day I woke up beautiful
with never closing my eyes 
I woke up beautiful
and now I see what you see
your love has made me believe 
I like who I can be 
I woke up beautiful to me

(one day I woke up beautiful to me
with never closing my eyes I woke up beautiful to me
all because of you
I woke up beautiful to me
I woke up beautiful to me)

Thank you so much. This one is actually a song, and so these lyrics have been worked and reworked more than any other piece of writing I have done. Thank you for stopping back in to read and comment. ~jan

Thank you Charmaine. This is my feel good song, and yes everyone should feel beautiful about themselves but very few people do. some of us are just lucky enough to be able to see it through someone else's eyes.

Thank you Arthur. I love this song, and find myself singing it often, but have never recorded it.

A charming lyric that needs to be sung, and hopefully will be sung by someone who needed to feel beautiful, and were finally seen for their beauty by someone else's eyes.
