"Supposed to Be Beautiful" as written by and Michael Logen....
Doesn’t anybody notice, does anybody know this
Quiet sadness we all feel, the spinning of the wheel
There’s an aching for the innocence lost before the oceans
Found their way into the valleys and the canyons

We were hoping to be whole by now, Hoping to bring healing down
Around us in our violence, Laughter for our silence,
Yes, but underneath the comfort of our dinner conversations,
There’s a fumbling of the moments, Cause we know that we are fading

But we were supposed to be beautiful, you and I
We were supposed to be beautiful, and though we try
We are not so beautiful, you and I

Just another grey-sky morning, Cast aside the scorning
Of the second-hand clock ticking, Quickening the moments
And every day bleeds into yesterday and into tomorrow
Until we find our way back down under this earth we only borrow

But we were supposed to be beautiful, you and I
We were supposed to be beautiful, and though we try
We are not so beautiful, you and I

But when I hold a newborn child, and walk across the mountains wild
I believe in God in Heaven and I believe in His redemption
And when I walk down by the ocean and I’m lost in my emotion
I believe, I believe

That we were supposed to be, beautiful, hmm

    General CommentAccording to Michael Logen himself...
    "I wrote this song after watching a movie about the Holocaust called the Pianist...after which you come away just heart-sick and questioning everything...the brokenness of humanity and how anyone could ever get to that level of depravity are what fueled this song and it's pretty raw ...but I do believe there is hope as well...if I was going to be honest I had to put that in this song..there is hope"

    Knowing his purpose for this song makes it even more special to me. It's aching, haunting, and beautiful. After I listen, I just sit there thinking for a minute; I can't even move. Michael Logen writes the most beautiful lyrics and melodies of anyone I have ever known. Listen for yourself :)
