{Destiny's child}

Yeah please dry your eyes, young girl
Don't cry, you're beautiful
It's not your fault, young girl
Don't cry, you're beautiful

You're not the one to blame
Soon it would be okay
One day you'll realize your beauty

It was a Saturday
This cold afternoon
Inside this house there lived
A frightened young girl

She didn't know what she should do
'Cuz she missed her mother so
She was left home all alone
With her step-father

Please dry your eyes, young girl
Don't cry you're beautiful
It's not your fault, young girl
Don't cry you're beautiful

You're not the one to blame
Soon it would be okay
One day you'll realize your beauty

He touched her places
That he shouldn't have touched
He did some things to her
That he shouldn't have done

Then she ran into her room
Paged her mother 911
And the tragedy began
For this young girl

She told her mother
Her family, and friends
No one believed her
'Cuz before this happened

She was filled with hate and anger
Towards her step-father
'Cuz he took her mother from her
When they married

Please dry your eyes, young girl
Don't cry you're beautiful
It's not your fault, young girl
Don't cry you're beautiful

You're not the one to blame
Soon it will be okay
One day you'll realize your beauty

She looked for her father
In the men that she saw in
Thought that all she had to offer
Was her body

No one could figure out why
This young girl would live her life
In such pain and unhappiness
'Cuz she was so beautiful

She rebelled and one day the young girl
Fell in love with another man like her step-dad
He abused her emotionally
And made her feel like she was worthless

I hope one day she realizes
And see the beauty in her eyes
All she needs is prayer and strength
'Cuz she's beautiful

Please dry your eyes, young girl
Don't cry you're beautiful
It's not your fault, young girl
Don't cry you're beautiful

You're not the one to blame
Soon it would be okay
One day you'll realize your beauty

Please dry your eyes, young girl
Don't cry you're beautiful
It's not your fault, young girl
Don't cry you're beautiful

You're not the one to blame
Soon it would be okay
One day you'll realize your beauty

Don't hold your head down low
You've got so much, so much, so much
So much, so much to be proud of
You can still live your life
I promise you, you'll survive
Girl I love you, you're beautiful
