Her beauty is astounding
It leaves my heart pounding
I won't bore you with details
But when she walks past an angel hails
I try to explain this feeling
How she sets my head reeling
But she pushes me away
"Ugly got too close to me today"
She doesn't care that I'm a girl
And she still leaves me in a whirl
It's my look she objects to
The cruelty of nature, through and through
Every day I try, I do
To get those three words out: "I love you"
Every day she shows me
That the dirt is the only place I could ever be
"Ugly. I'm pretty. You're not."
I don't care a jot.
Her hands are filthier than mine
Disinfectant doesn't change a detail so fine
"Ugly. I'm pretty. You can't ever be."
It's true, I know, as I fall to one knee
She looks perfect but her heart is flawed
There's only one way she can be cured
"Pretty. I'm Ugly. You should be too.
I only do this because I love you."
The knife slices through her skin
I hold her frame, so gentle and thin
"I'm Ugly now. You're to blame."
Through her bandages her eyes are aflame
"You were always Ugly, to the core.
Be Pretty my love, as never before."
