BEAUTIFUL
[E. Maguire]
______________________________

One fine day you ran away
To live your life a better way
Sick and tired of all the tears
He hadn’t held you close in years

Or looked at you with loving eyes
Talked to you without a lie
Cos all that time he’d found himself
In someone else’s arms

But you’re not wrong
You’re beautiful in every way

You are kind and wise
Beautiful
Mindful and mild
Beautiful

If you could see through my eyes
I don’t think you would recognise
The face you’ve seen a thousand times
You only see the lines and frowns

But if you could you’d realise
The truth beneath his pack of lies
Nothing you could say or do
Was good enough for him

To be your friend
Forgiven, but in the end

You are kind and wise
Beautiful
Mindful and mild
Beautiful
