Music Monday: You're Beautiful by James Blunt

Sirius XM has a way of getting a song stuck in your head by playing it multiple times across multiple channels...when we drove to Washington, DC for the 4th of July, London bet me we would hear Daughtry's "No Surprise" ten times across the ten hour trip there and back. This week, it's James Blunt's wistful "You're Beautiful," inspiring my Music Monday post.
Two summers ago, when Rex and the girls and I saw Sheryl Crow at PNC Bank Arts Center, and James Blunt opened the show, I kept getting him mixed up with John Mayer of the helpful Cosmo sex angle, but I guess I shouldn't have been holding my breath waiting to hear "Your Body Is A Wonderland"... (another great choice for a Music Monday post!)

I also confuse James Blunt and John Mayer with Jason Mraz...on the "if it's too loud, you're too old" theme, I'm afraid that when all they hot young boyz start to look the same...

My life is brilliant.

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.

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.

Yeah, she caught my eye,
As we walked on by.
She could see from my face that I was,
Flying 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.

Not only is you're beautiful a good song but the lyrics are good too.
Sadly its rare these days that both the lyrics and the music are equally great but this one is!Trish
