about

about someone who will never know I wrote a song about them

lyrics

I met you the summer I was 18 when love was just a game
Went back to college and you didn't call me, since then I've never been the same
But then you came back to me again, tried to rectify what you'd done
A different man with different plans, a new life had begun and

Years later and beautiful you
Never did anything you said you were gonna do
Standing on the same street with another cigarette
Breathing in another night of reasons and regret
Oh, years later and I can finally admit it's true
I always loved beautiful you

Our paths collided time and again, the years went by as they often do
Took great pains to never let you figure out how much I cared for you and
You kept on telling me you loved me, you could have been saying “The sky is blue”
I guess the pain of years gone by wouldn't let me admit I loved you too and

Years later and beautiful you
Never did anything you said you were gonna do
Standing on the same street with another cigarette
Breathing in another night of reasons and regret
Oh, years later and I can finally admit it's true
I always loved beautiful you

Spent so many nights wandering lonely streets, hoping to see you
But I didn't want you to know
Everywhere I went, every tall dark silhouette
My heart skipped a beat for the moment I believed it was you

But then I saw you standing there on the same street, outside of the same bar
It's such a shame being so beautiful didn't get you very far
There's nothing really much to talk about anymore, nothing really left to say
The common ground we held each other on so long ago has slipped away and

Years later and beautiful you
Never did anything you said you were gonna do
Standing on the same street with another cigarette
Breathing in another night of reasons and regret
Oh, years later and I can finally admit it's true
I always loved beautiful you
I always loved beautiful you
I always loved beautiful you
Beautiful you
