"Beautiful Wreck" as written by Shawn Mullins, Glen Phillips, Pete Droge and Marshall N Altman....
I've lost count of the times I've given up on you
But you make such a beautiful wreck you do
There's a tavern on the corner called the Milky Way
And you look so at home there if makes me afraid

And at the dark end of this bar
What a beautiful wreck you are
When you go too far, beautiful wreck you are

Well all the plans that you had
From seven years ago
Like all the promises you make
I watched them come and go
You put your keys in the car but it wouldn't drive
With you hands on the wheel lookin' barely alive
I'm still sitting here waiting on the passenger side
For you to make up your mind
For you to make up your mind

At the dard end of this bar
What a beautiful wreck you are
When you go too far,
Beautiful wreck you are
What a beautiful, such a beautiful
A beautiful wreck you are
What a beautiful, sucha a beautiful wreck

I've lost count of the times I've given up on you
But you make such a beautiful wreck you do
Yeah, you make such a beautiful wreck you do
You make such a beautiful wreck you do

At the dark end of this bar
What a beautiful wreck you are
When you go too far
Beautiful wreck you are
What a beautiful, such a beautiful
Beautiful wreck you are
What a beautiful, such a beautiful
Beautiful wreck you are

    General CommentSounds alot like me, so I guess it means to me about someone close to you watching you go through your addictions but still loving the person underneath all the issues and seeing the potential in them.
