Ooh what's the use in trying
Thick as thieves & packs of liars
Marching through the palaces of mine
All my life I looked for something
And all my seas are drops of rain

Ooh what's the use in trying
All the time it ends in nothing
Oh What's the use in trying now
Burn all the canvases
They painted the queen in crutches
Trialed to see how they all see you now

Girl, you can do just as you like
Girl, you can do just as you please
Girl, you wanted, you could have been dead

Now you're swinging like a funeral march
But nobody died
Now you're swinging like a funeral march
Oh You used to be beautiful
Oh You used to be beautiful
Oh You used to be beautiful
OOOOooooooooooooooh

Ooh what's the use in trying
Everything just turns to nothing
No mechanics here can save your life
Moons crashing inside the opera
Oozing all the starless actors
All hung out in pieces of her sky

Girl, you can do just as you like
Girl, you can do just as you please
Girl, you wanted, you could have been dead

Now you're swinging like a funeral march
But nobody died
Now you're swinging like a funeral march
Oh You used to be beautiful
Oh You used to be beautiful
Oh You used to be beautiful
Oooooooooooooooh

    Oh, what's the use in trying?
    Thick as thieves and packs of lies
    Marching to the palaces of night

    All my life I looked for something
    All my seas are drops of rain
    Drunk as sailors drinking from your hand

    Girl, you can do just as you like
    Girl, you can do just as you please
    Girl, you wanted, you could've been dead
    Now, you're swinging like a funeral march in June
    And it's way past July

    Oh, what's the use in trying?
    All the time, it ends in nothing
    Oh, what's the use in trying now?

    Burn all the canvases
    They painted up the queens in crutches
    Trial to see how they all see you now

    Girl, you can do just as you like
    Girl, you can do just as you please
    Girl, you wanted, you could've been dead
    Now, you're swinging like a funeral march, oh
    Yeah, but nobody died
    Oh, you're swinging like a funeral march
    Oh, you used to be beautiful
    Oh, you used to be beautiful
    Oh, you used to be beautiful
    Oh...

    Oh, what's the use in trying?
    Everything turns to nothing
    No mechanics here can save your life

    Moons crash inside the opera
    Oozing all the starless actors
    All hung there in pieces of a sky

    Girl, you can do just as you like
    Girl, you can do just as you please
    Girl, you wanted, you could've been dead
    Now, you're swinging like a funeral march, oh
    Yeah, but nobody died
    Oh, you're swinging like a funeral march
    Oh, you used to be beautiful
    Oh, you used to be beautiful
    Oh, you used to be beautiful

    Oh, you used to be beautiful...
