“He loved her, but he wasn’t too sure
IF he could return the love she showed.
When she said, ‘my love extends
Beyond the realm of being friends.’
He kissed her head
And quietly he said,
‘It’s not that you’re not beautiful, you’re just not beautiful to me.’
She said, ‘how beautiful do I have to be.
When I look in the mirror you’re the only thing I see
And I have loved you beautifully.”
“Beautifully” Jay Brannan
I really am a sucker for strong lyrics. I love the songs where you can understand and actually feel what’s going on — you get a sense of the characters and the plot. You pull for the hero/heroine, or you hope for Karma to hurry up and balance the scales.
I don’t know how this song got to be on my Pandora. I don’t know which song I liked to get Jay Brannan’s “Beautifully,” but I sure am happy that it’s there. Every time it comes up on my rotation, I have to just stop what I’m doing (some of you know how rare this is) and I just listen.
I can picture the whole story in my head…and I really like to think she finds the man brave enough to love her…one who puts no qualifiers on her beauty.
Yeah, I truly love lyrics that have a story to tell…that connect to the array of emotions we, as humans, share. Love it. Love it. Love it.
