"You're Beautiful (UK Version)" 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

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 CommentShe 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.

    Nothing wierd about that.
    Nothing at all.
    Nope.

    General CommentWhat is the difference in the UK version? It is it in the music or lyrics...?

    General Commenti personally like this version a lot more than the CD version. i originally got my hands on a copy of this, before james blunt was known in north america, and loved it. the version in the music video isn't nearly as touching as this one.
    the music is different and there isn't a "my life is brilliant" in the first few seconds in the song like there is in the video version
    james blunt rocks.

    General Commentoh, and there are more differences within the lyrics with the chorus, just different timing, but the words are mostly the same

    General CommentUnderstandably, James Blunt has became a victim of Cockney rhyming slang and is now known as 'Bland Cunt'. Which can only be expected when you're churning out such awful music.

    General CommentJames Blunt rocks? When I see him with an SG Special and a pair of Hiwatt stacks, he'll rock.

    General CommentI don't get it, the first verse he says "I got a plan", but the next he says "And I don't know what to do", huh?
    Anyway, I've always hated this song.
