Jots in June - 2018 #SLS Song Lyric Sunday

I had to participate in the #SLS Song Lyric Sunday today because the prompt is...SMILE.  (On reading the comments, I see that it was supposed to have been "simile" as suggested by Jim Adams but I am much happier with "smile!"

The song I chose is "Just The Way You Are" by Bruno Mars.  I love Bruno Mars and he is definitely on my list of people to see if he comes around our way again. 

The lyrics: 
Just The Way You Are

Oh, her eyes, her eyes make the stars look like they're not shinin'
Her hair, her hair falls perfectly without her trying
She's so beautiful and I tell her everyday
Yeah, I know, I know when I compliment her she won't believe me
And it's so, it's so sad to think that she don't see what I see
But every time she asks me "Do I look okay?"
I say
When I see your face
There's not a thing that I would change 'cause you're amazing
Just the way you are
And when you smile
The whole world stops and stares for a while
'Cause girl you're amazing
Just the way you are
Yeah
Her lips, her lips, I could kiss them all day if she'd let me
Her laugh, her laugh she hates but I think it's so sexy
She's so beautiful, and I tell her everyday
Oh you know, you know, you know I'd never ask you to change
If perfect's what you're searching for then just stay the same
So don't even bother asking if you look okay, you know I'll say
When I see your face
There's not a thing that I would change
'Cause you're amazing
Just the way you are
And when you smile
The whole world stops and stares for a while
'Cause, girl, you're amazing
Just the way you are
The way you are
The way you are
Girl, you're amazing
Just the way you are
When I see your face
There's not a thing that I would change
'Cause you're amazing
Just the way you are
And when you smile
The whole world stops and stares for a while
'Cause, girl, you're amazing
Just the way you are
Yeah

I think this is a wonderful song.  Often there are things we don't like about ourselves, the way our hair looks, the way we laugh, etc.  It is sometimes hard to accept compliments from people when they tell us we look nice or that they like our smile.  I am not happy with my hair, too thin and too fine, but I think I have nice eyes :)  Conceit is not a good thing either but we should be able to be proud of ourselves.  We are, after all, unique and perfect in our own way.   

Here is Bruno singing his song.  I love the way they did this video too. 







Hope everyone has a wonderful Sunday and remember to share those smiles! 

Thanks again to Helen at This Thing Called Life One Word At A Time for organizing this fun way to spend a Sunday!

    1. Thanks Donna. I am sorry we didn't get a chance to see him when he toured our area a few years ago. Definitely is on my list of people to see!

  2. So funny! I prefer the "smile" prompt as well although now that I'm thinking of songs related to similes, I can think of several.
