"Beautiful Girl" as written by and Danielewski/garcia/de Rafels....
Someone's gotta hear this...

Beautiful girl,
You must've been a beautiful baby too
Beautiful woman,
You must've had your moments inside the sun
Beautiful girl

Beautiful stranger
Why do you have to walk with your head hung low
Beautiful girl

Your eyes are mockingbirds inside a guilded cage
Your life's a silent movie that I haven't heard for ages
Tell me everything, someone's gotta hear this
Beautiful thing

Beautiful mother, frozen in ice
I've waiting for you to grow for my whole life
Beautiful girl

Your eyes are mockingbirds inside a guilded cage
Your life's a silent movie that I haven't heard for ages
Tell me everything, someone's gotta hear this
Beautiful thing (so beautiful)

    General CommentThis is a really...beautiful song! lol
    "Beautiful mother, frozen in ice" I'm pretty sure this song is all about the artist's mother, and how she feels about her mother's life. Maybe that she'd like to know more about it, but her mom wont open up about those things.

    General CommentIncredibly beautiful. I could see that. Although that song at the end of this CD she says Hi to her mother but meant to say why is your life a joke? That makes me think she didn't have a good relationship with her. Maybe that song was during an angry moment and this was more a contemplative moment about her mother.

    General CommentThis is definetly one of the best songs ever written... and by far the best ever by Poe!! It really touches me very deeply even though i can't say what it exactly is about... but i can't see how the song should be about her and her mother having a really BAD relationship, cause i think the song and the way she sings it is really positive in its energy... and it really makes feel happy, not sad...

    General CommentWhen i hear this song, I imagine the artist looking through a bunch of old pictures of her mother. Each picture is different. Something terrible must have happened to the mother because the artist seems to speak of her in the past.

    General CommentI personally believe that this song has nothing to do with her mother. I believe that it's about a woman very close to her and about growing up with that person and watching them become a woman, and a mother.

    General CommentEvery time I've heard this it reminds of not just my mother as like a little girl,but like my grandmothers and my aunts. All the women in my family and what Marilyn Monroe said"Every little
    girl should be told that they are beautiful even if their not". Sorry paraphrasing.
