"Life Is Beautiful" as written by and Holly Ann Lerski....
Life is beautiful
We live until we die

When you run into my arms
We steal a perfect moment
Let the monsters see you smile
Let them see you smiling

Do I hold you too tightly?
When will the hurt kick in?

Life is beautiful, but it's complicated
We barely make it
We don't need to understand
There are miracles, miracles

Yeah, life is beautiful
Our hearts - they beat and break

When you run away from harm
Will you run back into my arms
Like you did when you were young?
Will you come back to me?

I will hold you tightly
When the hurting kicks in

Life is beautiful, but it's complicated
We barely make it
We don't need to understand
There are miracles, miracles

Stand where you are
We let all these moments pass us by

It's amazing where I'm standing
There's a lot that we can give
This is ours just for the moment
There's a lot that we can give

    General CommentI adore this song and I definitely see it as being from someone to their lover. Definitely about facing the hardships of life and acknowledging that sometimes the ugly side of life is what ultimately makes it more beautiful.

    General CommentI adore this song, and the band along with it. I can see this song being sung in an arena with the entire audience singing the last verse.

    General CommentIt's Chasing Cars with different lyrics. Listen to the songs back to back, and you'll know EXACTLY what I mean.

    General Commenti completely agree with EmceeCrash05. they remind me so much of snow patrol in so many ways. i loooove this group and this song, i was first introduced to them when they opened at an Augustana concert, and i enjoyed them nearly as much as Augustana themselves. (and it's only nearly because i didn't know any of their songs at the time)
