"All the Beautiful Things" as written by and Mark O. Everett....
Everyday I wake up, wonder why
I'm alone when I know I'm a lovely guy
Birds come down from sky so blue
See all the beautiful things you do
Why can't I just get with you

Every night I carry out my plan
Pray to God that one day I could be your man
Birds come down from sky so blue
See all the beautiful things you do
Why can't I just get with

You'd be my only friend in the world
Well you could just be my girl

And if I do run away from this life
There won't be much for me in the afterlife
Although I know that you don't even care
I'd rather stay in a world where
Birds come down from sky so blue
See all the beautiful things you do
Why can't I just get with you

    General CommentThis one makes my teeth ache, it's so pretty and sugar-coated; although I have to admit to wondering if it's maybe a little tongue-in-cheek. Maybe just a little.

    A different facet here than the album's earlier song, "The Longing" - with the "I'd die for you" line, this one makes the confession that the singer would rather not have to. Although the subject of the song is apparently oblivious anyway.
