"Something Beautiful" as written by Robert Peter Williams and Guy Antony Chambers....
You can't manufacture a miracle
The silence was pitiful that day.
A love is getting too cynical
Passion's just physical these days
You analyze everyone you meet
But get no sign, love ain't kind
Every night you admit defeat
And cry yourself blind

[Chorus:]
If you can't wake up in the morning
Cause your bed lies vacant at night
If you're lost, hurt, tired or lonely
Can't control it, try as you might
May you find that love that won't leave you
May you find it by the end of the day
You won't be lost, hurt, tired and lonely
Something beautiful will come your way

The DJ said on the radio
Life should be stereo, each day
In the past you cast the unsuitable
Instead of some kind of beautiful, you just couldn't wait
All your friends think you're satisfied
But they can't see your soul no, no, no
Forgot the time feeling petrified, when they lived alone

[Chorus

Some kind of beautiful (will come your way) [Repeat: x4]

All your friends think you're satisfied
But they can't see your soul no no no
Forgot the time feeling petrified
When they lived alone

[Chorus]

    General CommentIt's really beautiful and honest, you can really relate to that feeling of wanting loneliness to end for you. The vibe, the music, Rob's voice and lyrics make it so sweet and simple (like Robbie's earlier material), one of my favourites of Escapology, for sure. It makes me smile and gives me a bittersweet feeling (cause even when it's hopeful, I tend to cry to it).

    General Commenti dont think this song is half as well known as it deserves to be. i listen to it when imfeeling a bit down, and there are a few lines which i think are really uplifting, i think it explains itself.

    'Every night you admit defeat
    And cry yourself blind

    If you can't wake up in the morning
    'Cause your bed lies vacant at night
    If you're lost, hurt, tired or lonely
    Can't control it - try as you might
    May you find that love that won't leave you
    may you find it by the end of the day
    You won't be lost, hurt, tired and lonely
    Something beautiful will come your way'
    it means that if you feel like nobody cares because youre on your own, (if your bed lies vacant at night), doint worry because something beautiful will come your way.

    bbut the line i relate to above all is "all your friends think your satisfied, but they cant see your soul".

    great lyyrics, im sure a lot of people can relate to

    General CommentThis song is so beautiful! 'Everynight you admit defeat, and cry yourself blind' as in everynight you think there's no hope and cry yourself to sleep. But then it says 'you wont be lost, hurt, tired and lonely something beautiful will come your way' meaning there is someone out there for everyone, so someome that loves you for who you are and cherishes your qualities and not just your 'physical' will come your way. hence the line 'passions just physical these days' means to me, love and beauty nowadays are based around image and looks rather than 'something beautiful' deep inside a person. Also i love the line 'All your friends think you're satisfied, But they can't see your soul' i can relate to this because i went through a depressive stage and my friends all thought i was fine because i put on a brave face but they didn't know what was going on, such a beautiful song, doesn't get much attention thought? Should do it's purely amazing.

    Song MeaningI was watching a dvd of Robbie Williams called the Robbie Williams show and he stated this-

    "This song is about lying in bed and wishing you weren't alone. Which I must say doesn't happen to me very often"

    Great song, Great singer, Great song writer and Great entertainer.

    General Commenti thinmk this is a greta song of hope. its sayign that even if you are feeling lonely, something beautoufl will come your way so dont worry:

    Every night you admit defeat
    And cry yourself blind

    If you can't wake up in the morning
    'Cause your bed lies vacant at night
    If you're lost, hurt, tired or lonely
    Can't control it - try as you might
    May you find that love that won't leave you
    may you find it by the end of the day
    You won't be lost, hurt, tired and lonely
    Something beautiful will come your way
