"Beautiful" as written by and Gordon Lightfoot....
At times I just don't know
How you could be anything but beautiful
I think that I was made for you
And you were made for me

And I know that I won't ever change
We've been friends through rain or shine
For such a long, long time

Laughing eyes and smiling face
It seems so lucky just to have the right
Of telling you with all my might
You're beautiful tonight

And I know that you won't ever stray
'Cause you've been that way from day to day
For such a long, long time

And when you hold me tight
How could life be anything but beautiful
I think that I was made for you
And you were made for me

And I know that I won't ever change
We've been friends through rain or shine
For such a long, long time

Well, I must say it means so much to me
To be the one who's telling you
I'm telling you, that you're beautiful

    General CommentThe title matches both the woman it reminds me of as well as its sweet tune. Guys, learn the lyrics and sing it to your woman. If you love her like the lyrics reflect, it'll be hard to do with dry eyes...and she'll love it.

    General CommentSupposedly, Gordon was inspired to write this wonderful song upon hearing of the untimely death of a close female friend, which makes it all the more poignant...and Beautiful.

    General CommentHaving listened to Lightfoot's music since his earliest days, owned albums, etc., I thought I had heard them all. Until a few years ago, when I saw a guy playing this song on YouTube. All I could think was "Wow!" on several levels: Great cover. Great song! How could I have missed this one?! Must learn this to sing to my wife! Thanks to Gordon (and this site), I now have the closest lyrics to matching, in a sincere and straightforward way, both who she is, and how I feel about her.
