Awesome Song!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I have to admit, I've become a huge fan of Jessie Daniels. She is from New York (what's not to love about that?), has this great rock sound with a twinge of pop that I really like, and she writes her own songs. Best of all, she incorporates messages of her faith into her music.

One of her songs that I really like and has resonated with me is called "Stand Out". I feel like if I could ever write a song, this is pretty much what I would want to say. Here are the lyrics:

You're staring in the mirror and your looking back at me
Somehow you've replaced yourself and don't like what you see
You've been a slave for far too long to what other people think
So you bend and you break and you lose along the way
What once was beautiful I want to

Stand out
I wanna stand tall
I wanna be myself even if it means
I won't fit in at all
I wanna be real
I wanna be me
Cause everything I am is who I'm meant to be
I was meant to be free

Why are we so quick to hide originality
We try and try to fit inside a false reality
We're all the same when it comes to putting on the face
and its such a shame
Oh its such a waste
Cause what makes us beautiful
Is what makes us


We are we are beautiful
We are we are beautiful
