Duff Mckagan – Song For Beverly lyrics

"My girlfriend, who was a model, tells me stories sometimes.
The one she told about this girl Beverly was really eerie:
She started modeling really young, and she started doing coke
And then shooting dope, and she just disappeared. She was adopted,
And she herself had a baby, a daughter. So I just started thinking
About Beverly. It was this really odd and dark mystery to me:
Where are you? Where's your daughter? Are you trying to find your own
And I wrote this song. But now she's reappeared. I hung out with her one
She's got herself straight, and she's going to school, and her daughter's
But the mystery of the song is sort of ruined." - Duff

Why do you have to be so hateful?
Why do you have to be so sad?
Is it because you grew up too fast?
Did someone break your heart up bad?


You are so beautiful, you are it's true
What ever happened to you lately?
Did you go off with the painted man?
Do you wonder who's your mother?
Don't let your baby guess who's you

(Chorus 2)

You are
It's you
You are so beautiful, you are it's true
You are so beautiful, you are it's true
