"Gorgeous" as written by Idina Menzel and Dave Bassett....
In a perfect world, in another time
In a far off place we wouldn't need to justify
Everything we are
And all that we believe
We could finally be
Whoever we both want to be
And when we can't be heard,
And when we can't be seen
I will call you close and
You will reach for me

When all of the beauty turns to pain
When all of the madness falls like rain
As long as we crash and we collide
We will be gorgeous, you and I

Through the window pane,
Through the bedroom door
This city wants to fight
But it can't touch us anymore
We have come so far,
We have shed our skin
The more that's taken from us now,
The more we have to give
And when we can't be heard,
And when we can't be seen
I will call you close and
You will reach for me

When all of the beauty turns to pain
When all of the madness falls like rain
As long as we crash and we collide
We will be gorgeous, you and I

And when we are drowning in the noise
I'm gonna stop to hear your voice
As long as we crash and we collide
We will be gorgeous, you and I

(We'll be gorgeous)
(We'll be gorgeous)
In the perfect time
(We'll be gorgeous)

And when we lose our faith
In all that's beautiful
You lift me to this place

When all of the beauty turns to pain
When all of the madness falls like rain
As long as we crash and we collide
We will be gorgeous, you and I

And when we are drowning in the noise
I'm gonna stop to find your voice
As long as we crash and we collide
We will be gorgeous, we will be gorgeous
(you and I)

And when I lose my faith
I don't know what to do
You lift me to this place
And make me feel so beautiful
As long as you're right here by my side
We will be gorgeous, you and I

    General CommentSo at first, I thought this was just about living in a crazy world and they're still gorgeous as a couple even through the chaos, but another thought came to mind. After they had gotten married they were threatened because of being an interracial couple, and I thought it could be about that too. Like, she sings "When all of the beauty turns to pain, when all of the madness falls like rain." They are a beautiful couple and they're in love, so that in and of itself is beautiful, but it becomes painful because people can't look past their differences. She still sees that they'll be gorgeous even when others don't understand though.

    Anyways, 2 different thoughts. Either way, I love the song.

    My InterpretationI had the same general line of thought, MusicisOxygen, but I actually thought it may have been about homosexual couples. Though I can see why Interracial couples may also come to mind.

    General CommentThey also received threats when they announced her pregnancy and the birth of their child. I think she's taking her personal experience and making a statement about the privacy of relationships, whether they be interracial, homosexual, or just disapproved of. I think that's why she includes "the city wants to fight but it can't touch us anymore". Just because people don't like the fact that she's white and he's black doesn't erase the fact that they love each other.
