Beautiful Girl

Cold November morning taste the salty tears that streak your upturned face
And say the saddest word: ‘goodbye’
Knowing that I’ll never feel your warmth again nor see the day
Illuminated by your lovely smile

You’re a beautiful girl
You’re a beautiful girl
Such a beautiful girl
You’re a beautiful girl

The glow of recognition, something old that held the hope of something new
And then dissolved and left me blind
You didn’t seem to understand the power of the gift you gave
You let me feel, you let me laugh and cry

You’re a beautiful girl
You’re a beautiful girl
Such a beautiful girl
You’re a beautiful girl

So I watch the Sun to feel the Earth turn round
And I close my eyes to kiss the frozen ground

And of all the noble causes
There is nothing in this world
That I would die for
Except you

You’re a beautiful girl
You’re a beautiful girl
Such a beautiful girl
You’re a beautiful girl

  1. Cold November evening, dry the salty tears that
    Streak my downcast face.
    I said the saddest word
    “Goodbye”.
    I’m knowing that I’ll someday feel your warmth again
    And See the day illuminated
    By your crooked smile.

    You’re a beautiful man,
    You’re a beautiful man.
    You’re a beautiful man,
    Such a beautiful man.

    The glow of premonition--
    Something new,
    that held the power of something old.
    And then dissolved and let me see.
    You never quite confronted that the gift I gave would
    Help you feel, would help you laugh and cry and be.

    You’re a beautiful man,
    You’re a beautiful man.
    You’re a beautiful man
    You’re a beautiful man.

    So I tread the Earth to feel the stars go round
    And I close my eyes to block the light I’ve found.

    But of all the noble causes
    There is nothing on this Earth that I would live for –
    Except you.

    You’re a beautiful man.
    You’re a beautiful man.
    You’re a beautiful man –
    Such a beautiful man.
