James Blunt, You're Beautiful


James Blunt's You're Beautiful has a haunting quality that makes it irrestible:

"You're Beautiful"

My life is brilliant.

My life is brilliant.
My love is pure.
I saw an angel.
Of that I'm sure.
She smiled at me on the subway.
She was with another man.
But I won't lose no sleep on that,
'Cause I've got a plan.

You're beautiful. You're beautiful.
You're beautiful, it's true.
I saw your face in a crowded place,
And I don't know what to do,
'Cause I'll never be with you.

Yeah, she caught my eye,
As we walked on by.
She could see from my face that I was,
Flying high, [ - video/radio edited version]
Fucking high, [ - CD version]
And I don't think that I'll see her again,
But we shared a moment that will last till the end.

You're beautiful. You're beautiful.
You're beautiful, it's true.
I saw your face in a crowded place,
And I don't know what to do,
'Cause I'll never be with you.

You're beautiful. You're beautiful.
You're beautiful, it's true.
There must be an angel with a smile on her face,
When she thought up that I should be with you.
But it's time to face the truth,
I will never be with you.

And I don't know what to do,
'Cause I'll never be with you.
But it's time to face the truth,
I will never be with you.
As this knowledge sinks in she quietly sighs, a single tear glistening in her eye.

I played the rest of the album on Rhapsody and enjoyed. It is overplayed but still haunting. The sense of loss that a beautiful person is glimpsed and will never by anything to you is poignant and all too common.

I like to think the jump into the water in the video is not suicide, but just a lark.
