"Beautiful" as written by and India Arie/hicks Simpson....
The time is right
I'm gonna pack my bags
And take that journey down the road
Cause over the mountain I see the bright sun shinning
And I want to live inside the glow, yeah yeah

I want to go to place where I am nothing and everything
That exists between here and nowhere
I want to got to a place where time has consequence and oh yeah
The sky opens to my prayers

I want to go to beautiful, beautiful, beautiful
I want to go to beautiful, beautiful, beautiful
I want to go to beautiful, beautiful, beautiful
I want to go to beautiful, beautiful, beautiful

Please understand that it not that I don't care
But right know these wall are closing in on me
I love you more than I love life itself

But I need to find a place were I can breathe
I can breathe
I want to go to place were I can hold the intangible
And let of the pain with all my might

I want to go to a place where I am suspended in ecstasy
Some where between dark and light
Where wrong becomes right

I want to go to beautiful, beautiful, beautiful
I want to go to beautiful, beautiful, beautiful
I want to go to beautiful, beautiful, beautiful
I want to go to beautiful, beautiful, beautiful

    Wow. I think that this song is really beautiful because its saying how she feels stuck in her repitious ways and she just needs something new to make her feel pretty again.

    General CommentSuicidal tendencies in the lyrics,too....maybe she wants to find the reason for living in general, and escape to something more beautiful

    This is SOOO me. if i could tatoo that on my head when im in my mellow mood i would! People who don't know me that well think im mad at them when actually i just need time to myself to think about things. Where i need to find a place to just be by myself for awhile. Love the CD in general!

    General Commenti know what you mean shattered... how bout this line

    I love you more than I love life itself
    But I need to find a place were I can breathe
    I can breathe

    It's like she's suffocating in her life... I love you more than anything but I need time. Wow I can relate...

    General CommentThis song has always given me a certain feeling that can't quite be described but it's just so amazing. I crave something new so much, just like India does in her lyrics. I've always listened to this when I've felt suffocated by my surroundings, just as she states in her own words.

    "I wanna go to a place where I can hold the intangible,
    And let go of the pain with all my might"

    I love those lines... how "beautiful" would it be if we could just let go of all of our pain? I love her lyrics.

    General Commentactually, me being one of india's biggest fans haha... this song is really about Savannah, Georgia. Which should make make the lyrics easier to understand now.. but its just about her packing her things and starting over in the place which she considers most beautiful (savannah).. and i must say if you have ever been there.. it is definately one of the most beautiful places in the south in my opinion...
