"Beautiful" as written by and William Corgan....
Beautiful, you're beautiful
As beautiful as the sun
Wonderful, you're wonderful
As wonderful as they come

And I can't help but feel attached
To the feelings I can't even match
With my face pressed up to the glass
Wanting you

Beautiful, you're beautiful
As beautiful as the sky
Wonderful, it's wonderful
To know that you're just like I

And I'm sure you know me well
As I'm sure you don't
But you just can't tell
Who'll you love and who you won't
No, who'll you love and who you won't

And I love you, as you love me
So let the clouds roll by your face
We'll let the world spin on to another place
We'll climb the tallest tree above it all
To look down on you and me and them

And I'm sure you know me well
As I'm sure you don't
But you just can't tell
Who you'll love and who you won't
No, who'll you love and who you won't
No no, who'll you love and who you won't
No no

Don't let your life wrap up around you
Don't forget to call, whenever
I'll be here just waiting for you
I'll be under your stars forever
Neither here nor there just right beside you
I'll be under the stairs forever
Neither here nor there just right beside you

    General Commentthis is the first time i listen to this song and i have to say that im about to cry.... its such a true honest song, and even thought its great i feel helpless and powerless when i hear because this song is like the story of my life right now... im so in loved with this girl from my english class, we are great friends, she likes me and i like her,the problem is that she is 16 and im 14, and she is not interested in me... i havent told her yet because im afraid that if i do so she will not be my friend anymore, and i think i might have a chance or maybe not, i dont know what to do i mean i think is the age difference what makes it hard but still... what do you think, will it work or not? will it turn out good or my whole world will be scorched out because of her? anyway im getting of topic... great song great band great album SP FOREVER

    There was a small room, in the back of the old house, tucked under the back stairs, where he spent many lonely hours. It was in this room that most of the songs on Mellon Collie, including Beautiful, were written(or at least those parts he didn't hear in a dream)

    and, yes ... she was beautiful. and still is.

    General Commentsuch a great song about loving someone that you just can't be with. i think people see different meanings to this song, but i always imagined some sort of beautifully impossible relationship in which he's waiting hopelessly to have again.. *sigh* its really a great song

    FAVORITE PART: "i'll be here just waiting for you; i'll be under your stars forever, neither here nor there just right beside you. i'll be under the stairs forever, neither here nor there just right beside you"
