Nobody Ever Told You

I know I only just posted about the Carrie Underwood concert two days ago, but I have listened to her song ‘nobody ever told you’ a few more times since then and I have decided there needs to be more songs like this one.  Songs that actually encourage and value girls for who they are and tell them not to listen to all the other rubbish that is constantly thrown in their faces… It’s just refreshing to have a secular song that has morals, that encourages and lifts up and leaves you feeling good… If I had daughters this is the type of song that I would want them to be listening to, this is the type of song I wish they played on the radio, this is the type of message I wish the world sent to our girls… Anyway, here are the lyrics have a read and see what you think….

Take off all the makeup girl
Shine your light, show the world
Don’t be shy, don’t be scared
You don’t have to hide under there
Let’s throw away all the magazines
Turn off the static on the TV
Wish you could see yourself the way I do

Nobody ever told you
Nobody ever told you
You shine like a diamond
Glitter like a gold
And you need to know
When nobody ever told you
Yeah
La la la la la

Mirror mirror on the wall
Acting like he knows it all
Tells you lies of vanity
He doesn’t care what’s underneath
All hung up on the negative
Doesn’t have to be the way it is
Wish you could see yourself the way I do

Nobody ever told you
Nobody ever told you
You shine like a diamond
Glitter like a gold
And you need to know
When nobody ever told you

Free as a bird,
Up on a watch
Just like a flower growing wild
You’re beautiful, you’re beautiful
Nobody ever told you,
Nobody ever told you
You shine like a diamond
Glitter like a gold
And you need to know
When nobody ever told you

You shine like a diamond
Glitter like a gold
And you need to know
When nobody ever told you
