LYRICS

I love it here
Cause I don't have to explain to them
Why I´m beautiful
Cause I am beautiful
Back home they're scared
Oh so scared of me
That I became scared of me
I´ve become scared of me

The way you smile
When you believe in your future
Is different, is different
The way you smile
When you believe in your future
Is different
Is different

***
Now we moving forward ever
Backwards never
Forward ever
Backwards never
And when the going gets rough
And life gets tough
Don't forget to breathe

***
I love it here
Cause I don't have to explain to them
Why I'm valuable
That I'm magical
Back home they tear
Tear my soul apart
Love my broken heart
Don't know where to start
The way you smile
When you believe in your future
Is different
Is different

***
Now we moving forward ever
Backwards never
Forward ever
Backwards never
And when the going gets rough
And life gets tough
Don't forget to breathe

***
Surely I did not go through all of this for nothing
Yet nothings such a beautiful word
Baby surely you did not go through all of this here for nothing
Yet nothings such a beautiful word
Cause nothing can be loved into something
Nothing can be loved into something

Nothing can be loved into something
To something

***
Now we moving forward ever
Backwards never
Forward ever
Backwards never
And when the going gets rough
And life gets tough
Don't forget to breathe

I cried... I swear I felt this song, the lyrics so much. Growing up in the Netherlands with partially Jordanian roots... I've often struggled to feel accepted. Thank you Seinabo 🙏🏽 for your music...keep going, please don't stop! ❤❤❤

I am in love with this song! I am an Iraq war veteran who has complex ptsd. Just came out of a really bad episode and found this song. I’m going to meditate on this one for a while. Thank you for creating and sharing this.
