How One Direction and Bruno Mars can boost a girls self esteem!

I know this is going to seem weird and all, but I got One Directions', Up All Night cd from my local library and downloaded it to my iPod. So for some reason I've been thrashing, What Makes you Beautiful, and actually bothered to listen to the lyrics.

Now I know they are boys, and I'm old enough to be their mother, but the point is the lyrics. The same with Bruno Mars', Just The Way You Are.

For women who are feeling insecure with themselves, these lyrics are important. It's what we want a man to think and feel about us. We want them to see us for what we are, without make-up, without fancy clothes, without all the crap we use to cover ourselves up on an almost daily basis.

I know, it's all very bizarre that a little boy band can sing lyrics in a song that can affect women of all ages. But maybe it's time we started thinking these things about ourselves? 

I've posted the film clips and lyrics below.

Jewels xxoo

You're insecure, Don't know what for, You're turning heads when you walk through the door, Don't need make-up, To cover up, Being the way that you are is enough,

Everyone else in the room can see it, Everyone else but you,

Baby you light up my world like nobody else, The way that you flip your hair gets me overwhelmed, But when you smile at the ground it ain't hard to tell, You don't know, Oh oh, You don't know you're beautiful,

If only you saw what I can see, You'll understand why I want you so desperately, Right now I'm looking at you and I can't believe, You don't know, Oh oh, You don't know you're beautiful, Oh oh, That's what makes you beautiful

[Verse 2]
So c-come on, You got it wrong, To prove I'm right, I put it in a song, I don't know why, You're being shy, And turn away when I look into your eye eye eyes.

Oh, her eyes, her eyes make the stars look like they're not shining, Her hair, her hair, falls perfectly without her trying, She's so beautiful, and I tell her everyday Yea, I know, I know, when I compliment her she won't believe me, And it's so, it's so sad to think that she don't see what I see, But every time she asks me, do I look okay, I say

When I see your face, there is not a thing that I would change, Cause you're amazing, just the way you are, And when you smile, the whole world stops and stares for awhile, Cause girl you're amazing, just the way you are, hey

Verse 2
Her lips, her lips I could kiss them all day if she'd let me, Her laugh, her laugh she hates but I think it's so sexy, She's so beautiful, and I tell her everyday Oh, you know, you know, you know I'd never ask you to change, If perfect's what you're searching for then just stay the same, So don't even bother asking if you look okay, you know I'll say

The way you are, the way you are
Girl you're amazing, just the way you are
