"Beautiful Thing You" as written by and Emmy Gryner Wally Gagel.....
And in the time it takes to feel, I could swear that you get closer every day
And my only hope is when it all comes real, I don't fuck it up and throw it all away
'Cos every time the chaos starts - time after time
The message screams into my heart, we're always an ocean apart
(You're always in my heart)

Oh, woah, woah, you beautiful thing you
You beautiful thing you, you beautiful thing (aah-aa aah-aa aah-aah-aah)
Oh, woah, woah, you beautiful thing you
You beautiful thing you, you beautiful thing

When I console myself when life is throwing spears, there's a growing love the spirit deep inside
And a part of me has felt it getting near, trying patiently to break the great divide
And if I fall I won't look down - I'll face the sky
I'll be there second time around - to practice the balance I've found
(I'll always be around)

Oh, woah, woah, you beautiful thing you
You beautiful thing you, you beautiful thing (aah-aa aah-aa aah-aah-aah)
Oh, woah, woah, you beautiful thing you
You beautiful thing you, you beautiful thing

Always an ocean apart
(You're always in my heart)

Oh, woah, woah, you beautiful thing you
You beautiful thing you, you beautiful thing (aah-aa aah-aa aah-aah-aah)
Oh, woah, woah, you beautiful thing you
You beautiful thing you, you beautiful thing
(You beautiful thing)
You beautiful thing (you beautiful thing)
You beautiful thing

    General CommentOh wow back in..1994(?) when i heard this it instantly became my anthem. I had a big crush on someone at the time and i used to play this constantly. I saw The Wildhearts in November 2008 for the first time in over 10 years and thay played this song! I was so chuffed, it brought back so many feeling of way back then during my school days. *sigh*

    Respect to Ginger.

    General CommentI think Ginger said this one was about being with somebody that is amazing, and that in turn making you feel like you are amazing, because you are with this person. Nice.
