"Beautiful Thing" as written by Ken Block, Jeff Beres, Andrew Copeland, Ryan Carter Newell and Mark E. Trojanowski....
Well I'll follow you wherever
When you lead me by my nose
On another big adventure I suppose
Then you lay me down in clover
With their petals on my back
I should make some time
To do more things like that

Won't you sing to me your poetry,
Won't you take me to your home,
Won't you be for me forever
So I'll never be alone
And just one thing
If you're my queen
Then it's a beautiful thing

Well I'm buried in my bedroom
Under fourteen feet of clothes
I could drown in all this clutter I suppose

But then you're standing in my doorway
With a suitcase on your back
And it blows my mind
When you do things like that

Won't you sing to me your poetry,
Won't you take me to your home,
Won't you be for me forever
So I'll never be alone
And just one thing
If you're my queen
Then it's a beautiful thing

Yeah, reminding me
Well I might be poor
But summers free
For me, I didn't know I was sleeping

Won't you sing to me your poetry,
Won't you take me to your home,
Won't you be for me forever
So I'll never be alone
And just one thing
If you're my queen
Then it's a beautiful thing

    General Commentto me, this song is about someone you love and admire. not necessarily a lover though. this reminds me of my best friend. i think the meaning is that this "beautiful" person feels neglected by you. or that you don't appreciate your loved ones til they are gone. the "beautiful thing" to me is their soul. "Then you lay me down in clover, With their petals on my back"..when times are good and the person is all you need

    General CommentThis song can be about a lover or a friend, just depends on how you look at it. But I dont think that whoever it is about has died. I think its more like the guy has not appreciated the value of his lover/friend's spontaneity and sillyness. And when he follows her and allows her to be "his queen," then he can let go off all the stuff thats been cluttering his life (the 14ft of clothes that drown him), and he can allow himself to enjoy life freely with her. Its those big adventures that he loves about her.
    Such a great song! I have to thank my bestfriend for introducing me to it!!! (thanks pie)
