I would so like to see you
After so many miles away
After so many lonely days
In my mind

I would so love to meet you
In some out of the way space
Where nobody knows your name
Or my face

Yes I know you dont really know me very well
But if I only promise, you'll pretend you will
Get to see what we could have had
And yet
It's easier to be someones beautiful regret
Beautiful regret
Beautiful

I would so like to be true to the opposites in me
To the contradictions sleeping in my mind
You would love to treat me to what you already gave away
But you only have one night, one night, one life

Well I dont really know you very well
But if you only promise I'll pretend I will
Get to see what we could have had
And yet
It's easier to be someone's beautiful regret
Nearly see what we know, we will never get
Still its sweet to be
Someone's beautiful regret
Regret
Beautiful regret
Beautiful regret
Beautiful regret

    General CommentI think it's about a one night stand and how people aren't really ever sure if they should have one. but if you don't you'll still be their "beautiful regret" and it's easier that way
