Well I called you out
But you scream and you shout
Of course I've heard all about
How you get around

You were beautiful once
Ah but look at ya' now
There ain't no one to wonder if you're not around
But you were all that I could want
You were all that I need

Well it's such a shame
For you to feel this way
Well all the kids how they say
"Beauty comes before age!"

I'm so sorry love that it had to turn out this way

Well you were beautiful once
Oh and god what you'd give to be young again
and amongst your friends
That held you up like a queen
But you were all that I could want
You were all that I'd need

you kick and you scream and you cancel your dream and it's not what you want but I know what you mean and it's never the thing that you thought that it'd be well they played you a fool it's so easy to see and I look at you now that you're gettin' so old you regret that you've done all the things you were told my god how your life is just passing you by with your face in your hands and your lips screamin why

Well you were beautiful once
Oh and god what you'd give to be young again
and amongst your friends
That held you up like a queen
But you were all that I could want
You were all that I'd need
