I used to draw all the time back when I was in high school
Thick yellow pencils with soft lead that smeared real easy
Page after page. I was lonely.
But senior year I met a girl and she made me feel better here
But a girl was a girl, was a girl

And she was beautiful
Everyone's beautiful
I smeared the picture and left it with her to appraise

I remember in junior high, half sick from fear on the hillside
Eddie wore braces and talked like he couldn't be beaten
Shawn had said Friday out back after school
And Eddie was stumbling, blood mixed with drool
But a fight, is a fight, is a fight


Still they were beautiful
Everyone's beautiful
All of us crawling on hands and knees in need of you

I want to lift
My memory
Of them in the desert and set it on fire
And watch it burn
Watch it burn
Oh, how it changes
And hope that the smoke of the sins of my youth
Will sail to the base of the throne of a King
'Cause a prayer is a prayer is a prayer


And they were beautiful
Everyone's beautiful
Let them all find their redemption down deep in your eyes

    This song's awesome, I saw them live in Dallas like 3 years ago at The Dallas Guitar Show. I wish they had played this song. Maybe one of my favorite christian bands!

    Everyones beautiful? This song is beautiful. Talks of the different stages of our lives and how we come across so many people, some who are good some who are bad but all are beautiful and all in need of God.
