Scars To Your Beautiful by Alessia Cara
But there's a hope that's waiting for you in the dark
You should know you're beautiful just the way you are
And you don't have to change a thing
The world could change its heart
No scars to your beautiful, we're stars and we're beautiful

And you don't have to change a thing
The world could change its heart
No scars to your beautiful, we're stars and we're beautiful


About Alessia Cara...
Growing up in Ontario, Canada, Alessia Cara wrote all different genres of poetry and taught herself how to play the guitar. She rose to fame on youtube by uploading videos of herself playing and singing along to covers with the acoustic guitar. Signing to EP Entertainment and Def Jam Records, Cara hit the charts with a new single ¨Here¨ from her debut album Know-It-All. Which was released on June 17th, 2015.
She just wants to be beautiful
She goes unnoticed, she knows no limits
She craves attention, she praises an image
She prays to be sculpted by the sculptor

She has dreams to be an envy, so she's starving
You know, cover girls eat nothing
She says "beauty is pain and there's beauty in everything"
"What's a little bit of hunger?"
"I can go a little while longer," she fades away

She don't see her perfect, she don't understand she's worth it
Or that beauty goes deeper than the surface, oh, oh
So to all the girls that's hurting, let me be your mirror
Help you see a little bit clearer the light that shines within

Oh, she don't see the light that's shining
Deeper than the eyes can find it, maybe we have made her blind
So she tries to cover up her pain and cut her woes away
Cause cover girls don't cry after their face is made
There's a hope that's waiting for you in the dark
You should know you're beautiful just the way you are

And you don't have to change a thing
The world could change its heart
No scars to your beautiful, we're stars and we're beautiful (repeat)

No better you than the you that you are
No better you than the you that you are
No better life than the life we're living
No better life than the life we're living
No better time for your shine, you're a star
No better time for your shine, you're a star
Oh, you're beautiful, oh, you're beautiful

And there's a hope that's waiting for you in the dark
You should know you're beautiful just the way you are
And you don't have to change a thing
The world could change its heart
No scars to your beautiful, we're stars and we're beautiful
And you don't have to change a thing
The world could change its heart
No scars to your beautiful, we're stars and we're beautiful

¨Scars To Your Beautiful¨ by Alessia Cara
I chose ¨Scars To Your Beautiful¨ because of the deepth of the lyrics about a young teen who struggles to learn about the acceptance of self beauty.The lyrics are written in a powerful tone to illustrate the girl's feelings.

Thesis:
The tone of Alessia Cara’s song ‘’Scars To Your Beautiful‘’ is powerful towards society's expectations for young teens to look like models. She displays a theme of acceptance and appearance through the use of imagery and recurring allusions to covergirl that illustrate the masking of reality.

Meaning & Summary
The meaning of ¨Scars To Your Beautiful¨ by Alessia Cara, sets a tone through the lyrics that are powerful towards society's expectations for young teens to look like unrealistic models. She also displays a theme of acceptance and appearance through the use of imagery, diction, and recurring allusions to covergirl that illustrate the masking of reality. The lyrics describe and illustrate a subject that is very prominent in the world and is something many generations of young adults focus on. Alessia Cara presents these ideas within a set of lyrics that speak directly to the issue society faces. With the use of imagery and diction Alessia Cara is able to more intensely emphasize the theme of acceptance and appearance within young teens.

Allusions

She says "beauty is pain and there's beauty in everything"
"What's a little bit of hunger?"
"I can go a little while longer," she fades away

Imagery
Tone

Music
¨Sculpted by the sculpter¨
¨covergirls don't cry after their face is made¨
¨she praises an image¨
¨She says "beauty is pain and there's beauty in everything"
"What's a little bit of hunger?"
"I can go a little while longer," she fades away¨

The lyrics set a mood to the song which dictates a slow, sad beat. Yet, Alessia Cara twists the music with the words and creates an upbeat tempo for ¨Scars To Your Beautiful¨. The musicality of the song does not blend or fit together because the song is written as a slow melody and the music added to it makes it an uplifting song.
