about

Being "pretty" can be as much of a weight as being "ugly", and in a world that seems obsessed with judgements that separate us from each other, how do we find our way back to understanding each other beyond the labels that we wear?

lyrics

pretty is a way of feeling caught up in the motions of you
caught up in the world you hold so dear
with all that i could take for granted every little seed you planted
every time you whispered in my ear

and i'm not so pretty though i know it's easy to pretend that i am you

pretty is a severed feeling a disconnected state of being
caught up in the world that others see
with every imperfection shining every light reflected blinding
every whisper growing to a din

and i'm not so pretty though i know it's easy to pretend that i am you
and i'm not so pretty though it seemed so easy to pretend that i am you

oh and i guess i'll never know i guess i'll never be as pretty as you seem

pretty is a way of feeling caught up in the motions of you
caught up in a world you hold so dear
