Verse 1

Picture perfect, straight out of a fairytale,

Skin that's white as snow, perfect long hair,

And he never stops praising your beauty

Even after you break his heart, it's so unfair.

Verse 2

Because look at me, a clumsy little tomboy,

Just an average girl that you'd find next door.

I don't have the looks to hold his attention,

But here's something no one's told you before.

Chorus

Beauty is not a weapon,

But that's how you seem to be using it,

Decking yourself from head to feet.

The very first time I

Went out with my guy,

You had the day with him at college- And you were dressed to the nines,

Always trying to occupy center stage- Trying to steal what was then mine,

But I won't fall into an irrational rage- Because you know what? It's fine,

If that's how you choose to play it,

Decking yourself from head to feet.

But you'd never find real love, Cinderella,

If you never walk barefoot across the street.

Beauty is not a weapon, and you know it.

Verse 3

It's sad, isn't it? Never knowing who loves you

For who you are, and who's in it for your looks?

Monotone clothes that highlight your pale skin?

Tell me, are you from some vampire story book?

Verse 4

You think you're too pretty to use your picture

For your Facebook profile, I couldn't agree more-

I don't have to see your face every day this way. (Thank you)

So here's something no one's told you before.

Chorus

Beauty is not a weapon,

But that's how you seem to be using it,

Decking yourself from head to feet.

The very first time I

Went out with my guy,

You had the day with him at college- And you were dressed to the nines,

Always trying to occupy center stage- Trying to steal what was then mine,

But I won't fall into an irrational rage- Because you know what? It's fine,

If that's how you choose to play it,

Decking yourself from head to feet.

But you'd never find real love, Cinderella,

If you never walk barefoot across the street.

Beauty is not a weapon, and you know it.

Outro

Beauty is not a weapon, and you know it.

You know it,

You know it,

You know it.

Beauty is not a weapon.

But clearly that's how you choose to defeat me, so fine.
