"You Are So Beautiful" as written by Bruce Fisher and Billy Preston....
You are so beautiful, to me
You are so beautiful, to me
Can't you see, you're everything I hoped for
You're everything that I need, you are so beautiful, to me

You are so beautiful, to me
You are so beautiful, to me
Can't you see, you're everything I hoped for
Everything that I need, you are so beautiful, to me

    General CommentI've heard that this song was composed by Billy Preston and he's singing to God, not to a girl.

    The clue are the missing second verse from the lyrics above (that Joe Cocker sang sometimes, see watch?v=WR5_oiayAew in youtube) :

    Missing verse:

    Such joy and happiness you bring
    Such joy and happiness you bring
    Like a dream
    A guiding light that shines in the night
    Heavens gift to me
    You are so beautiful to me

    before I knew that, I was singing/dedicating this song to my wife and also to my kids :)

    General Commentshort lyrics emphasis on meaning,
    and repetition backs up that view.

    this song is so powerful, an all time classic love song.

    General CommentThis is a classic indeed.
    I remember seeing it in the Little Rascals movie growing up (yes, im young). Alfalfa was singing it to his little lady and soap bubbles kept coming out of his mouth. OT....

    General Commentthis song was recently featured on one of those "i love the..." shows on vh1...(can't remember which year it was), and i found it really funny that the commentators were saying how this is an insulting song. "you are so beautifull.....well, to me at least"
    LOL, i didn't agree with this interpretation, but i still thought it was really funny.
    I actually think the "..to me" part emphasizes that the speaker doesn't care anything about what other people would think, not necessarily meaning that they'd think she is ugly, but regardless of what other people may or may not think, he doesn't care: she's beautiful to him!
