"The Most Beautiful Things" as written by and James Christopher/burch Adkins....
You say the most beautiful things,
An endless list of treasures of trimmings.
It takes all my faith just to start
I don't care now how much I'm wrong

My song it shames your ears
Every sentence a failure.
Slant rhyme is all I can give half truth is all I'll get.
Show us all what grace can mean,

All of what I might be.
Close your eyes call it escape.
We'll run away from everything
Lie to me,

Love me
We'll run away from everything.

    General CommentThis is on the singles album but it is one of the most songs they've done. I think it's beautiful and its all about how he can't communicate about how he feels to a girl

    General CommentI love this song more every time I hear it. I think his love for the object of the song is tender and selfless...perhaps unrequited...the word "grace" could refer to the grace of God moving through her.

    General Commentthe lyrics on this are slightly wrong. where it says (i love you) the actual written lyric is 'oh lie to me, oh love me'. this makes the songmeaning a bit different as i think the guy knows that the girl doesn't love him, and is maybe just being flirty with him, or something like that. thats what i think anyways...

    General CommentI think that the song is about a guy who loves someone, but she wont love him back. And he tries so hard to impress her and does everything he can to win her over, but she doesn't love him. He just wants to hear that she does "oh lie to me, oh love me" So I see what xpankfrisst is saying.

    General Commentit's "we run, we run". that links in with the "run away from everything" bit, where i think he justs wants to escape from wherever he is and be only with the girl he loves. i'm going to try and change it on the lyrics...
