I want to make a movie out of you
I want little girls to see your face on that screen
    and think “I’m kind of like her”
I want boys to fall in love with your smile
I want you to believe that you are a main character
I want people to line up to see you


I bet you have good taste in music
I bet you cry watching old movies
I bet you’ve never let anyone see the memories
    you’ve turned into bittersweet art
I bet nobody has read your eloquence
I bet not enough people tell you you’re beautiful
    and I bet you wouldn’t believe them if they did


I can see that you are bashful
I can see that you are insecure
    that you’re vulnerable
I can see unspoken words in your eyes
I can tell that you are seeking more
    and I can relate


I want to make a movie out of you
I want to convince you that you’re a star
I want to make you feel valuable
I want to tell you that you’re beautiful
    And I want you to believe me


You are beautiful.
