Foreman, Jon - You Don't Know How Beautiful You Are Lyrics




We learn to wear these masks so young
Like a prison that keeps joy from getting through
And an angry silence grips our tongues
These weapons and our walls become our tombs
We’re the kids who’ve seen the darkness
Always looking for a light
You fall in love and then the rains come down
And only part of you survives

Come surrender your hidden scars
Leave your weapons where they are
You’ve been hiding, but I know your wounded heart
And you don’t know how beautiful you are

I’m tired of hiding who I really am
Underneath these alibis
I want to know who you really are
I want to meet you here tonight
We're not born with these defenses
We’re not destined for this pain
We hide ourselves and put the fig leaves on
But a mask can never cover up this shame

Where we’re headed is a world apart
From where we started, we’ve come so far
I’ll take my chances
Honey, you can have my heart
Cause you don’t know how beautiful you are

Love surrender! (Let your walls come down)

Future gardens from all this rain
Future flowers from present pain
We’re bound together and our lives are bound to change
You don’t know how beautiful you are

And all the ashes from all these dreams
I’ve seen the beauty of fallen leaves
And someday, maybe we’ll find out what it means
And you’ll find out how beautiful you are
Yeah, you’ll find out how beautiful you are

    Verse 1]
    We learn to wear these masks so young
    Like a prison that keeps joy from getting through
    And an angry silence grips our tongues
    These weapons and our walls become our tombs
    We’re the kids who’ve seen the darkness
    Always looking for a light
    You fall in love and then the rains come down
    And only part of you survives

    [Chorus 1]
    Come surrender your hidden scars
    Leave your weapons where they are
    You’ve been hiding, but I know your wounded heart
    And you don’t know how beautiful you are

    [Verse 2]
    I’m tired of hiding who I really am
    Underneath these alibis
    I want to know who you really are
    I want to meet you here tonight
    We're not born with these defenses
    We’re not destined for this pain
    We hide ourselves and put the fig leaves on
    But a mask can never cover up this shame

    [Chorus 2]
    Where we’re headed is a world apart
    From where we started, we’ve come so far
    I’ll take my chances
    Honey, you can have my heart
    'Cause you don’t know how beautiful you are

    Love surrender! (Let your walls come down)

    [Bridge]
    Future gardens from all this rain
    Future flowers from present pain
    We’re bound together and our lives are bound to change
    You don’t know how beautiful you are

    [Chorus 3]
    And all the ashes from all these dreams
    I’ve seen the beauty of fallen leaves
    And someday, maybe we’ll find out what it means
    And you’ll find out how beautiful you are
    Yeah, you’ll find out how beautiful you are

    Genesis 3:7,21 Hebrews 12:2 thank you for your endless love King if kings. I love this song. It's like a psalm. There is the love story of God; and on earth as it is in heaven if we live Jesus.

    Such a harmonic song! Great message too. God made us beautiful, but our sin covered us with shame and ashes. But God can still restore the beauty He created inside of us! Moreover, He can take the destruction and wreckage,caused by the devil and make it to something even more beautiful!

    Someone told me "E V E R Y B O D Y Needs Jesus/God in their life" When really I think every single person... everybody needs and deserve Jon in our lives. . . i know i do.

    I feel followers of Christ the real ones is a question worthy of asking and It seems we can become more prophetic truly prophetic when we simply realize that we are loved by our Father that our maker sees our beauty before the womb and like flowers if a field and all that splendor and all the birds and they eat always and they are intricate and wonderful in all details and yet how much are we? And love is the greatest gift and when we learn he loves us anyway we can love others and tell them I think that's what Jon does and spreads this awakening , inherent evil is mixed in the good and this creates a false sense of acceptance even religion has its masks

  15. Rhoda Albers

    two people haven't found out how beautiful they are

  16. Rhoda Albers

    Like a prison that keeps joy from getting through...you've been hiding...but you don't know how beautiful you are! You don't know how beautiful this song is!:)
