"Sad & beautiful world" as written by and Mark Linkous....
Sometimes I get so sad
Sometimes you just make me mad

It's a sad and beautiful world
It's a sad and beautiful world

Sometimes I just won't go
Sometimes I can't say 'no'

It's a sad and beautiful world
It's a sad and beautiful world

Sometimes days go speeding past
Sometimes this one seems like the last

It's a sad and beautiful world
It's a sad and beautiful world

    General Commentalso a very beautiful song. I think it's about (very simple) how the world can look so beautiful and yet so sad, all at the same (confusing) time. Amazing. I think it holds a lot of truth in it.
    When your happy, the world seems so beautiful, but yet, there's always something terrible happening at the same time... If you think about that stuff too much you probably get really depressed (just like Mark (singer) was (is?) )
    Nice to see how so few lyrics can be so beautiful and never bore you....

    General CommentThe song is about love and that makes the person experiencing it conflicted because he/she feels for the first time the complexity of a love that is beautiful for its purity and yet makes him/her sad because it makes him/her feel vulnerable at the same time. If one has never been the object of pure love then one can always be in control of one's emotions. Control equals safety and that sometimes passes for contentment. Love is chaos and creates conflict. It causes one to feel beautiful (especially if it's the first time one has been the object of unconditional love) and vulnerable because it exposes one to the possiblility that feelings can (and do) flow both ways. It's almost impossible to feel the love of someone and not be conflicted by that emotion.
