( C Em Am G F7M G )
Everybody knows we live in a world

Where they give bad names to beautiful things

Everybody knows we live in a world

Where we don't give beautiful things a second glance

Heaven only knows we live in a world

Where what we call beautiful is just something on sale

People laughing behind their hands

As the fragile and the sensitive are given no chance

And the leaves turn from red to brown

To be trodden down, to be trodden down

And the leaves turn from red to brown

Fall to the ground, fall to the ground

We don't have to live in a world

Where we give bad names to beautiful things

We should live in a beautiful world

We should give beautiful a second glance

And the leaves fall from red to brown

To be trodden down, to be trodden down

And the leaves turn green to red to brown

Fall to the ground and get kicked around


Am7    Am7sus4          F7
You strong enough to be

Have you the faith to be

Sane enough to be
                 Am7
Honest enough to stay
      Am7sus4        F7
Don't have to be the same
Am7   Am7sus4         F7
Don't have to be this way

C'mon and sign your name 
( F G Em )

( F G Em )
You wild enough to remain beautiful?
                           A
Beautiful, beautiful


( C Em Am G F7M G )
And the leaves turn from red to brown

To be trodden down, trodden down

And we all fall green to red to brown

Fall to the ground, but we can turn it around

You're strong enough to be

Why don't you stand up and say

Give yourself a break

They'll laugh at you anyway

So why don't you stand up and be beautiful

Black, white, red, gold and brown

We're stuck in this world

Nowhere to go, turn it around

What are you so afraid of?

Show us what you're made of

Be yourself and be beautiful
