James Blunt – You're Beautiful lyrics
[Intro]
My life is brilliant

[Verse 1]
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
'Cause I've got a plan

[Chorus]
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

[Verse 2]
Yeah, she caught my eye, as we 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 'til the end

[Chorus]
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

[Outro]
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.

    The guy saw a girl he recognized as his soulmate. He doesn't attempt to contact her so he lets her live on 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. And he is content with it.

    It's been a long time Alvin, but everytime I hear this song it only reminds me of you and those times that we're together. The feeling was so different, it felt like you're my soulmate then. I know that we met at the wrong time maybe that was the reason why it didn't work out. There's no closure just separate ways. I wish you knew that my feelings was real and it took me so long to finally move on. Thank you for the memories Nurse even if there was never an US.

    This song's really haunting and mysterious. For me it has all of the elements; the romance, the creeping sadness of realization, the mystery of how you find love, and the uplifting thought that someone can be beautiful to another's eyes. James may have saw someone who caught her heart in the first glance, and instantly, he felt a connection with that someone. That made the song haunting: the idea that love occurs in a mysterious, sometimes, spontaneous way that we can't comprehend. The whole piece's really uplifting for me, being a hopeless romantic.

    This is my take on it. I think the song is about a woman he used to be with and when he saw her at the subway he wanted to say something to her, but didn't. It was a chance meeting that may have seemed like divine intervention, but neither of them made a move. In his mind during that moment he spent a lifetime with her. I find this song sad but funny at the same time b/c my ex-bf didn't quite get the lyrics and thought it represented out relationship, but he meant it in a good way. Ironically the song is somewhat true for us because I dumped him and he can never be with me again.

    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.

    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.
