"My Beautiful Friend" as written by Martin Victor Blunt, Jon Brookes, Mark Vincent Collins, Anthony Paul Rogers and Tim Burgess....
My Beautiful Friend
I will pay attention, don't say this is the end
I find it hard to describe you
To point and discover you
Could I tell you once again

Oh my beautiful friend
Let me sleep and I will feed you when your hungry
Forever live inside of me
Through the holes in the pockets of my clothes
High, as high as an angel
I will stand there beside you
Love is all we need

Oh my beautiful friend
Oh my beautiful friend

I swear I adore you
Ain't no woman deep enough
I don't know how we made it this far dear
Without losing at least an ear
I could leave us, I could leave us a painting
Our lives are-a-changing

I couldn't and I wouldn't want to change you
Don't you know it, I can save you
I will do all of this on my very own
My Beautiful Friend
My beautiful Friend

Do you ever get this feeling
When it's hard to carry on

    General CommentThis is my favourite Charlatans song. It's so spooky, i just love the chill i get from it. It reminds me of a few different people - ex lovers who i still consider to be beautiful

    General CommentI think it's about Rob Collins, their original keyboard player who died in a car crash. It seems to me a song about the love men can have for each other as friends. The words suggest he feels helpless to stop his friend from destroying himself. Reminds me of a mate I lost to alcoholism.
