James Blunt - You're Beautiful

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,
Fucking high,
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.
Because my car was, for lack of better phrasing, severely fucked up, I’ve been driving a Chevy Malibu rental car from Enterprise… hardly a comparable model to my Eclipse, but so be it, that’s life! My car won’t be ready until sometime after January 20th. I really don’t mind this rental car at all. It’s a smooth ride… gets me from point A to point B with no problems (point A being my home, point B being work… an entire 3 mile distance!) I really miss my XM though! The FM radio just sucks! There’s not a decent variety of anything to listen to. Austin, TX being the self proclaimed live music capital of the world, it has a downright awful selection of radio stations.

Anyway, as I’m driving around today in my pimp rental car fumbling through FM stations, becoming agitated that there’s nothing to listen to, this song comes on. I’ve heard it several times before on XM, but I only really listened to the sweet melody… never really paid much attention to the lyrics, until today. I really like this song a lot… it doesn’t remind of any one in particular situation, but rather several over this last year and even years past… both happy and sad memories. It’s a very vivid image of hope and despair.
