"Beautiful Pain" as written by Brett Anderson and Bernard Joseph Butler....
I'm shaking and aching and talking to the sky
I shiver in the night but I can't sleep
You're as dark as the mascara that drips down from your eyes
Look what you've done to me

You're as dark as the ocean
As cold as the rain
You've got me weak with emotion
You're such a beautiful pain
Such a beautiful pain

So I shelter in the wardrobe
And shiver on the stairs
And I slide down in the gutter with the leaves
And I tried to talk to God as if he is really there
Look what you've done to me

You're as dark as the ocean
As cold as the rain
You've got me weak with emotion
You're such a beautiful pain

And I cling to my pillow
And scratch out my veins
You kiss like a killer
You're such a beautiful pain
Such a beautiful pain
Such a beautiful pain
(Such a beautiful pain)

As dark as the ocean
As hard as the rain
You've got me weak with emotion
You're such a beautiful pain

And I cling to my pillow
And scratch out my veins
You kiss like a killer
Such a beautiful pain

    General CommentBrett is saying that losing a woman you love is like coming off heroin(e). Which of course it is.

    And I shook hands with him at Glastonbury during this song!!!!!!!!!!!

    General CommentI think some of the lyrics are wrong, here's the correct ones:

    I'm shaking and aching and talking to the sky
    I shiver in the night but I can't sleep
    You're as dark as the mascara that drips down from your eyes
    Look what you've done to me

    You're as dark as the ocean
    As cold as the rain
    You've got me weak with emotion
    You're such a beautiful pain
    Such a beautiful pain

    So I shelter in the wardrobe
    And shiver on the stairs
    And I slide down in the gutter with the leaves
    And I tried to talk to God as if he is really there
    Look what you've done to me

    You're as dark as the ocean
    As cold as the rain
    You've got me weak with emotion
    You're such a beautiful pain

    And I cling to my pillow
    And scratch out my veins
    You kiss like a killer
    You're such a beautiful pain
    Such a beautiful pain
    Such a beautiful pain
    (Such a beautiful pain)

    As dark as the ocean
    As hard as the rain
    You've got me weak with emotion
    You're such a beautiful pain

    And I cling to my pillow
    And scratch out my veins
    You kiss like a killer
    Such a beautiful pain
