Superchick Album: Rock What You Got Track: So Beautiful
So Beautiful Lyrics
We are light, we were born beautiful We were meant to be more than these shadows of girls They cut us down to size, afraid we'll change the world But we'll fight for your right to be beautiful girls If every girl could see her beauty we would be an army
We are a thousand voices strong We are each girl who sings this song We are a beauty that's our own And we are, and we are So beautiful
We have dreams we were born to fulfill We were meant to be more than just fairy tale girls We are colors so bright, each a beautiful girl We are stars in the night, and we're changing the world When every girl can see her beauty we will be an army
Song Description: "When I listen to our finished records, I don't hear what other people hear. I don't hear the song or the things we got right - I hear the things I didn't get right. I hear the off notes, weak arrangements, clumsy lyrics and parts that I wish were better. Sometimes it's so bad it makes me cringe. I feel like I went to the Olympics and I got silver. Silver's not bad, but when you have gold standards it's still a failure. I listen to other people's records, and they sound so much better to me than anything I've ever done.
I think it's human tendency to focus on what we wish we could fix rather than what we got right. So many people look in the mirror and discount themselves. We see only the flaws. We have one ideal of success and beauty, and we criticize ourselves relentlessly if we don't conform to that. We warp and twist ourselves to hide the ugly creature we think we are. We believe that love must be earned because we ourselves are not worthy of love.
This robs us of who we are and who we can be. We are fearfully and wonderfully made, and God means for us to shine light and joy into the world - not to creep fearfully and timidly from place to place. Superchick was born out of that message, and it's a message we will keep repeating because the enemy does not sleep, and his insecurities still gnaw at our hearts. We will shout defiance from the rooftops over and over until all have heard that God has indeed made us all so beautiful." - Max Hsu (Superchick)
