“You are beautiful because your eyes are different sizes and your lisp gets in between your tongue and teeth every time you try to say “something”. You are beautiful because the scar under your chin looks like a spider and because you have a massive fear of heights. You are beautiful because there never has been, nor will there ever be anyone else on this Earth like you. Because your flaws are like fingerprints and should be embraced just like the free will that resides inside. You are not beautiful because of the symmetry in the little squares on your telephone, you are beautiful because “you” are the only “you” this place will ever know.
-John C. O'Callaghan V.”
“Am I Pretty?” is a sarcastic, socially aware track from the Maine's latest album American Candy, which is up for APMAs' album of the year. The Maine's fanbase is also nominated for most dedicated. Vote here, and catch the Maine on Vans Warped Tour all summer long.
