Do you think that a California girl is supposed to have curls and wear a jean size 3? 
All the curves in all the right places, spray tanned faces like on TV 
And we read in the gospel of Vogue that we're all supposed to dress and move and be 
 Visions of perfection 
Such a misconception 
 Because the real connection is deeper than the eye can see 

What's inside of you 
What's inside of me 
The hands that made the moon and the stars 
The mountains and the seas 
Made you wonderful, beautiful, marvelously 
Let the whole world see your 
True beauty 

Don't know much about Dolce and Gabbana 
 Seems like a lot of drama to me 
And you can keep all your red high heels 
And open-toed shoes - I'm good in my bare feet 

Lets get down to the nitty gritty 
 Enough sex and the city 
What about purity? 
Skin is just the surface 
The passion and the purpose that's burning down inside us 
Is really what we need to see 


Doesn't come in a bottle, doesn't come in a box 
You can't spray it on, you can't wash it off 
You can't nip and tuck, you can't sew it up 
So don't waste your time 
It's the love in your heart, the peace in your soul 
The hope in your smile lets the whole world know 
This little light - you gotta let it shine 

[Chorus x2]
