Jewel - What You Are Lyrics

Iím driving around town
Kinda bored with the windows rolled down
See a girl on the bus stop bench
Dressed to draw attention

Hoping everyone will stare
If she donít stand out she thinks sheíll disappear
Wish I could hold her, tell her, show her
What she wants is already there

A star is a star
It doesnít have to try to shine
Water will fall
A bird just knows how to fly

You donít have to tell a flower how to bloom
Or light how to fill up a room
You already are what you are
And what you are is beautiful

Heard a story the other day
Took place at the local VA
A father talking to his dying son
This was his conversation

ďItís not supposed to be like this
You canít go first I canít handle itĒ
The boy said ďDad now donít you cry,
Remember when I was a child what you used to tell me when Iíd ask why?Ē

(Youíd say) Gravity is gravity
It doesnít try to pull you down
Stone is stone
It canít help but hold its ground

The wind just blows, though you canít see
Itís everywhere like Iíll always be
You already are what you are
And what you are is strong enough

Look in the mirror
Now thatís another story to tell
I give love to others
But I give myself hell

Iíd have to tell myself
ďIn every scene thereís a perfect planĒ
Everything I hoped to be
I already am

A flower is a flower
It doesnít have to try to bloom
And light is light
Just knows how to fill a room

And dark is dark
So the stars have a place to shine
The tide goes out
So it can come back another time

Goodbye makes a love so sweet
And love is love so it can teach us
We already are what we are
And what we are is beautiful

And strong enough
And good enough
And bright enough
