This song says, "I love YOU, not your looks". Pity the video proves quite the contrary. Still a good song with a good message.

 

I don't want another pretty face
I don't want just anyone to hold
I don't want my love to go to waste
I want you and your beautiful soul

I know that you are something special
To you I'd be always faithful
I want to be what you always needed
Then I hope you'll see the heart in me

I don't want another pretty face
I don't want just anyone to hold
I don't want my love to go to waste
I want you and your beautiful soul
You're the one I wanna chase
You're the one I wanna hold
I won't let another minute go to waste
I want you and your beautiful soul

Yeah
You might need time to think it over
But I'm just fine moving forward
I'll ease your mind
If you give me the chance
I will never make you cry c'mon let's try

I don't want another pretty face
I don't want just anyone to hold
I don't want my love to go to waste
I want you and your beautiful soul
You're the one I wanna chase
You're the one I wanna hold
I won't let another minute go to waste
I want you and your beautiful soul

Am I crazy for wanting you
Baby do you think you could want me too
There is nothing left to hide

I don't want another pretty face
I don't want just anyone to hold
I don't want my love to go to waste
I want you and your beautiful soul
You're the one I wanna chase
You're the one I wanna hold
I won't let another minute go to waste
I want you and your soul

I don't want another pretty face
I don't want just anyone to hold
I don't want my love to go to waste
I want you and your beautiful soul

Beautiful soul, yeah

Girl, yeah

You're beautiful soul, yeah.

TO HOLD= to embrace, to hug

GO TO WASTE= be wasted, spoiled, ruined

SOUL= spirit, the immortal part of us

TO CHASE= to persecute, to go after (in this case, to woo)

TO THINK OVER= to ponder on it, to think about something carefully for some (or a long) time

I’M JUST FINE= I’m ok, I don’t have any problems with it

MOVE FORWARD= literally means "to advance, to move ahead", and in this context it means "to go deeper into a relationship with you; to try to be your boyfriend or to get more engaged"

I’LL EASE YOUR MIND= I’ll calm you down, I’ll make your worries disappear

CHANCE= opportunity

C’MON= come on

On a blog, I found a post by a girl saying:
what does the song actually mean though cuz [because] my b/f [boyfriend] dedicated it to me and my friend told me that it means he thinks I'm ugly but he loves me anyways lol [Laugh Out Loud = Ha, Ha, Ha!] i dont know if thats true but i asked him and he said that its not what it means so what does it mean?

The news is that he isn't calling you ugly. he's saying that looks aren't everything, that what you are, your soul, your personality, is much more important, it's what made him fall in love with you (well, we still don't know if you're ugly or not)
