"You're Beautiful" as written by James Hillier Blount, Sasha Scarbeck and Amanda Ghost....
My life is brilliant

My life is brilliant
My love is pure
I saw an angel
Of that I'm sure
She smiled at me on the subway
She was with another man
But I won't lose no sleep on that
'Cause I've got a plan

[Chorus]
You're beautiful
You're beautiful
You're beautiful, it's true
I saw your face in a crowded place
And I don't know what to do
'Cause I'll never be with you

Yes, she caught my eye
As we walked on by
She could see from my face that I was,
Fuckin' high
And I don't think that I'll see her again
But we shared a moment that will last till the end

You're beautiful
You're beautiful
You're beautiful, it's true
I saw your face in a crowded place
And I don't know what to do
'Cause I'll never be with you

You're beautiful
You're beautiful
You're beautiful, it's true
There must be an angel with a smile on her face
When she thought up that I should be with you
But it's time to face the truth
I will never be with you

    General CommentThis song is so good. Just kind of sad at the end when he says, "But it's time to face the truth, I will never be with you..." I think the meaning is pretty obvious.

    When I heard this song I was like oh wow what a great love song but then we I heard the lyrics its was the complete opposite and it just made me cry... I can relate to this song and i think everyone else would agree on that....

    General Commentthis song refers to true,pure love-the artist has fallen in love with this girl,but knows that she is out of bounds-quite possibly leading to suicide to numb the pain of knowing he can never be with his one true love.There are references to death throughout-"we shared a moment
    That will last till the end"..is the moment they shared and his dream of being her all that has kept him going,but eventually becomes an obsession-consuming him?
    "Cause I have got a plan"..what plan?suicide?surely not one to somehow gain her love,for he admits "I'll never be with you"
    "There must be an angel
    With a smile on her face
    When she thought up
    That I should be with you"..
    Angels..watching over him,guiding him..she seems perfect to him,yet he cant be with her-shes with someone else,and is perhaps out of her league-she notices him when hes "fucking high"..so angels guide him to what he feels is the answer..where he can be with her someday.

    General CommentI think this song is about just one moment, when you see somone in passing and you know you will never ever see them again but they have in some way touched you.

    General CommentI love the music and concept of this song, but the actual lyrics come across as corny and stupid to me. Still, the music is so pretty I can overlook that...

    General CommentThis song makes me think about a lot. Past and future..the pain someone goes through over another human being. I hate the feeling of not being able to have her...it's happened numerous times, and it just hurts more and more every time. But the song makes you realize how life is, and that a person can't achieve everything they want, so you have to tough it out, and just move on.
    "She can see from my face, that I was fucking high."
    I love this. She was so flawless....so perfect to him, that she gave him his own natural high.
    Wonderful Song.

    General Commentit's about love at first sight. He saw the woman of his dreams and he wants to be with her, but that will be really hard because they don't know each other.
    It happend that to me once... so I understand how painful it is.
