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,
F*****g 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.

    Love is in the air, love happens, love's in crazy places, love's moments or forever.
    Love's joy and body breakdown, love heals sickness. Love kills and destroy, love's like temperature, cold, hot or average.
    Love is Blood Pressure, love's laughing and crying more, lose of appetite, loosing weight, isolation, lossing friends, constant, sweet memory, sad death.
    Love's beautiful, fabulous and happy long or short life:) "you hear me" -by- tt.

    This song makes me want to smear honey in my ears and release fire ants and hornets in there so I will have an allergic reaction and swell so badly that I won't be able to hear the wretched croonings of this whiney mangirl. When I was young, I had a pet calf with lupus and he got stuck in a bear trap while running from a rabid badger, who caught up with him at the bear trap and gnawed off a good bit of his face. This song is similar to the wailing howls that unlucky baby cow made as his face was being pulled from his skull. I would rather be angrily sodomized by a drunken priest while my extended family watched than to hear that semi-sweet songstress bray out one single note. He should be tazered in the throat until his vocal chords are no more, then tazered in all other areas of his body, publicly, on the Oprah show, as restitution for his crimes against the ear. I really don't like this song. I mean, it's ok, I just hear it a lot on the radio, so.

    I feel james sees A girl on the subway. Falls victim to love at first sight. But he realises that he wont see his love again and at D same time she is with another guy. Now james is so very engrossed in love with dat girl dat he is just helpless and can't live without dat girl. But he wont losee his peace of mind ruminating over his failure. So he has A plan that is to commit suicide N he does dat at the end jumping into D big ocean. Putting an end to his helplessness N emotional weakness which would have made life hell for him. D song's realll emotional. I love it. Please comment on my interpretation.

    The guy saw a girl he recognized as his soulmate. He doesn't make an attemp to contact her, but he allows her to live in his mind. That's his plan. He's a realist. He knows that he may never see her again. He faces the truth instantly. But the thought of her will linger on forever. He's got a good heart and a good soul. Therefore his life is brilliant. His love is pure. He's not a stalker neither does he have bad intentions. He realises the kind of woman he loves. But never will get.
