You're Beautiful Lyrics by James Blunt


James Blunt Lyrics

You're Beautiful Lyrics
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 night
'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.

Yes, she caught my eye
As I walked on by.
She could see from my face that I was flying high,
And I don't think that I'll see her again,
But we shared a moment that will last 'til 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.

Dalalalala Dalalalala Dalalalala Dalalalala Daha...

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.
