Hey there, I'm Don. 22 years old, and a passenger of the roller coaster of life. Luckily not doing it alone, and have the most supportive and amazing girl on the planet by my side. And having a kickass group of friends helps too. My mind works in a nonstop visual manner, and I'm always looking to learn new things. So maybe stick around and see what we can teach or show each other.

Eminem- Beautiful

Intro:

Lately I’ve been hard to reach,
I’ve been too long on my own
Everybody has a private world,
Where they can be alone

Are you calling me?
Are you trying to get through?
Are you reaching out, for me?
Like I’m reaching out, for you.

Verse 1:

I’m just so fucking depressed
I just can’t seem to get out this slump 
If I could just get over this hump,
But I need something to pull me out this dump

I took my bruises, took my lumps,
Fell down, and I got right back up
But I need that spark to get psyched back up, 
in order for me to pick the mic back up.

I don’t know how, or why, or when,
I ended up in this position I’m in,
I’m starting to feel distant again
So I decided just to pick this pen,
up and try to make an attempt to vent,
but I just can’t admit, or come to grips, 
with the fact that I may be done with with rap, I need a new outlet

And I know some shit’s so hard to swallow,
but I just can’t sit back and wallow, in my own sorrow
But I know one fact, I’ll be one tough act to follow
One tough act to follow, I’ll be one tough act to follow
Here today, gone tomorrow
But you’d have to walk a thousand miles

Chorus:

In my shoes, just to see
What it’s like, to be me
I’ll be you, let’s trade shoes

Just to see what it’d be like to,
Feel your pain, you feel mine
Go inside each other’s minds
Just to see, what we’d find
Look at shit through each other’s eyes

But don’t let them say you ain’t beautiful, oh
They can all get fucked, just stay true to you, so
Don’t let them say you ain’t beautiful, oh
They can all get fucked, just stay true to you, so

Verse 2:

I think I’m starting to lose my sense of humor,
everything’s so tense and glum,
I almost feel like I gotta check the temperature of the room 
Just as soon as I walk it’s like all eyes on me
so I try to avoid any eye contact ’cause if I do that,
then it opens a door for conversation, like I want that

I’m not looking for extra attention, I just wanna be just like you
Blend in with the rest of the room,
maybe just point me to the closest restroom
I don’t need no fuckin’ manservant,
trying to follow me around and wipe my ass
Laugh at every single joke I crack
and half of them ain’t even funny like that

"Marshall you’re so funny man,
you should be a comedian, God damn”
Unfortunately I am
I just hide behind the tears of a clown
So why don’t you all sit down
Listen to the tale I’m about to tell,
Hell, we don’t gotta trade our shoes,
and you ain’t gotta walk no thousand miles

Chorus:

In my shoes, just to see 
What it’s like, to be me
 
I’ll be you, let’s trade shoes

Just to see what it’d be like to,
Feel your pain, you feel mine
Go inside each other’s minds
Just to see, what we’d find
Look at shit through each other’s eyes

But don’t let them say you ain’t beautiful, oh
They can all get fucked, just stay true to you, so
Don’t let them say you ain’t beautiful, oh
They can all get fucked, just stay true to you, so

Verse 3:

Nobody asked for life to deal us
with these bullshit hands we’re dealt
We gotta take these cards ourselves
and flip them, don’t expect no help

Now I could have either just sat on my ass
and pissed and moaned
Or take this situation
in which I’m placed in 
and get up and get my own

I was never the type of kid
to wait by the door and pack his bags 
I sat on the porch and hoped and prayed
For a dad to show up who never did

I just wanted to fit in
Every single place, every school I went
I dreamed of being that cool kid
Even if it meant acting stupid

Aunt Edna always told me,
"keep making that face, it’ll get stuck like that"
Meanwhile I’m just standing there 
trying to hold my tongue and talk like this

'Til I stuck my tongue on that frozen stop sign pole
at eight years old
I learned my lesson then
'Cause I wasn't trying to impress my friends no more

But I already told you my whole life story
not just based on my description
'cause where you see it, from where you're sittin'
is probably 110% different

I guess we would have to walk a mile
in each other’s shoes, at least
What size you wear? I wear 10’s
let’s see if you can fit your feet

Chorus:
In my shoes, just to see 
What it’s like, to be me 
I’ll be you, let’s trade shoes

Just to see what it’d be like to,
Feel your pain, you feel mine
Go inside each other’s minds
Just to see, what we’d find
Look at shit through each other’s eyes

But don’t let them say you ain’t beautiful, oh
They can all get fucked, just stay true to you, so
Don’t let them say you ain’t beautiful, oh
They can all get fucked, just stay true to you, so

Outro: 

Lately I’ve been hard to reach,
I’ve been too long on my own
Everybody has a private world,
Where they can be alone

Are you calling me?
Are you trying to get through?
Are you reaching out, for me?
Like I’m reaching out, for you.

Yeah, to my babies
Stay strong, daddy’ll be home soon

and to the rest of the world, God gave you the the shoes, to fit you
So put ‘em on and wear themBe yourself man, be proud of who you areAnd even if it sounds corny
don’t ever let no one tell you
you ain’t beautiful.




Nothing like connecting to a song by writing out the lyrics. 
It took a little longer than I expected, but that’s mostly because I kept getting distracted. But these lyrics are 100% typed by my hand. This is one of my favorite songs by Eminem, hope you enjoy it as well. Even if hip-hop/rap isn’t your thing, I think anyone going through any type of rough patch can relate to this song. 

Just remember: you’re beautiful.
