Thanks to one of the commentators on the site, we’ve dug up Frank Ocean’s demo version of “Scared of Beautiful”. The song was written and recorded a few years ago by Frank Ocean and most recently Brandy recorded her own version that will appear on her upcoming album “Two Eleven. You can listen to her version of the song here.

Lyrics

[Verse 1] 
Turn the lamp on, let me talk to yah 
See the light bulb does something to yah 
Makes it a little harder to tell a lie on it 
Makes it a difficult to run and hide on it 
Tell the truth to me, good truth to me 
Come closer to me, that’s you 
I wanna see the details inside those beautiful eyes

Myself ain’t never talked to me like that before, no 
And I wonder, what on earth is he searching for? 
No wonder why there’s no mirrors on these walls no more (no more) 
You can’t tell me why you’re so terrified of beautiful

[Chorus] 
Scared of good more then the evil 
Scared of the light more then the dark 
Scared of the truth so much more then a lie 
I’m scared for me, I’m scared of me 
Scared of beautiful

[Verse 2] 
Turn the lamp down, dont talk to me 
That lightbulb took something from me 
Gave something to me, I can’t decide, I cant decide 
Took freedom, gave purpose 
Can’t blend in, too perfect 
All this beauty ever gave me was a reason for some beautiful lies

Myself ain’t never talked to me like that before, no 
And I wonder, what on earth is he searching for? 
No wonder why there’s no mirrors on these walls no more (no more) 
You can’t tell me why you’re so terrified of beautifull

[Chorus] 
Scared of good more then the evil 
Scared of the light more then the dark 
Scared of the truth so much more then a lie 
I’m scared for me, I’m scared of me 
Scared of beautiful

[Verse 3]
Mirror, mirror, on the wall 
Who’s the fairest of them all? 
Mirror, mirror, why are you so 
Unfair to all of the beautiful ones?
No wonder why theres no mirrors on these walls no more 
You cant tell me why you’re so terrified of beautiful

[Chorus] 
Scared of good more then the evil 
Scared of the light more then the dark 
Scared of the truth so much more then a lie 
I’m scared for me, I’m scared of me 

[Outro] 
I’m scared of me, I’m scared for me, I’m scared for me 
I’m scared to be, beautiful 
Beautiful, 
Beautiful, 
Beautiful.

    Okay.. This goes out to the hosts and web masters for this site.. Are you guys finding this track just now?….. This wasn’t “DUG UP”.. Please go find the Lonny Breaux Mixtape and you’ll find 50+ of his old songs from over the years. I really hope the description wasn’t accurate..

    The Lonny Breaux Compilation were tracks that leaks and none of them was uploaded by Frank himself. Most songs of the Lonny Breaux were demos or reference vocals he was doing to get a little money. The only songs Frank put out himself are : Acura Integurl, Pyrite, those on Nostalgia Ultra, Voodoo, 4 tears, Whip Appeal, those on Channel Orange, Summer Remains (live), Disillusion (live), Blue Whale, maybe one or two snippets on his tumblr and his few featuring on few albums (WTT, GOBLIN, BLACKENEDWHITE, NUMBERS, ROLLING PAPERS, OF TAPE, etc.). He always said that all the songs from Lonny Breaux shouldn’t have come out… The reason DP probably said ”dug up” was because a lot of web versions have the wrong pitch plus a website supporting an artist shouldn’t supports the leaks.

    I love this so much. It’s one of the songs that encouraged me to find more of his music.

    the lyrics for the bridge are:
    Mirror, mirror, on the wall
    Who’s the fairest of them all?
    Mirror, mirror, ARE YOU SO
    UNFAIR to all of the beautiful ones?
    No wonder why theres no mirrors on these walls no more
    You cant tell me why you’re so terrified of beautiful
