How beautiful and valuable are you?

Below are the words to a beautiful song, and below that, a link to hear it. From me to you, with love:</p><br />
<p>I’m like one of those Japanese bowls<br /><br />
That were made long ago<br /><br />
I have some cracks in me<br /><br />
They have been filled with gold<br /><br />
That’s what they used back then<br /><br />
When they had a bowl to mend<br /><br />
It did not hide the cracks<br /><br />
It made them shine instead<br /><br />
So now every old scar shows<br /><br />
From every time I broke<br /><br />
And anyone’s eyes can see<br /><br />
I’m not what I used to be<br /><br />
But in a collector’s mind<br /><br />
All of these jagged lines<br /><br />
Make me more beautiful<br /><br />
And worth a much higher price<br /><br />
I’m like one of those Japanese bowls<br /><br />
I was made long ago<br /><br />
I have some cracks you can see<br /><br />
See how they shine of gold.

I’m like one of those Japanese bowls
That were made long ago
I have some cracks in me
They have been filled with gold
That’s what they used back then
When they had a bowl to mend
It did not hide the cracks
It made them shine instead
So now every old scar shows
From every time I broke
And anyone’s eyes can see
I’m not what I used to be
But in a collector’s mind
All of these jagged lines
Make me more beautiful
And worth a much higher price
I’m like one of those Japanese bowls
I was made long ago
I have some cracks you can see
See how they shine of gold.
