My life is brilliant.
My life is brilliant.
My love is pure.
I saw an angel.
Of that I'm sure.
She smiled 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.
Yes, she caught my eye,
As I 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.

    the beauty of this song lies in that fleeting moment they shared and the realization that dawns on him that he'll never be with her that makes it so poignant

    I had a dream recently that was just like this song. It makes me sad and sick at the same time... But mostly sad.

    For me it means a guy who saw a extraordinary woman on the subway and just fell in love at first sight . It usually happened to me around probably 6 times because I am a teenager .

    Actually (lengtm), the song "You're beautiful" is about unrequited love. Not love for someone who left your life. Seriously Adele is fat though.
