We Were Beautiful

I was blank as I could be
Hearing voices telling me
Walk away from everything
But where was I meant to go?
Far away from those I know
To some desolate below

We were in the uber scene
Where they grind the coffee bean
And the women are oblique
And the boys are paper thin
Ragged beards upon their chin
We are on the outside looking in

Rise above the present day
Rise above the popular melee
I see you the way you are
I see you the star

We were beautiful before this went down
We were beautiful before the years came
And turned it upside down
We were beautiful before we got wise
We were beautiful with sky and blanket laying low

I am hanging on the line
I'm on duty all the time
I am your Samaritan on call
I could try my best to heal
All the emptiness you feel
In the giving I will be alive

We were wrapped around our roots
Nothing on except our boots
We were intimate around the waist
We were settling our scores
We were healing over sores
We were living out the pleasure that we lost

We were beautiful before this went down
We were beautiful before the years came
And turned it upside down
We were beautiful for all of time and space
I will tell it to the sun and I will tell it to..

If you listen to the night
We can hear the madmen fight
Hear the foxes making out
But the people are immune
Sleeping silent in their rooms
Growing bodies with their sleep
Making plans inside their heads
Making love to shallow friends
Shallow friends

You are not too old to change
Happy only comes after the pain
Of you and me

We were beautiful before the years
came and turned it upside down
We were beautiful before we got wise
We were beautiful with sky and blanket fading out

We were beautiful before this went down
We were beautiful before the years
came and turned it upside down
We were beautiful for all of time and space
I will tell it to the sun and I will tell it to your face

Éramos hermosos (español)

Estaba en blanco
Escuchaba voces diciéndome
Escapa de todo
¿Pero a dónde debía ir?
Lejos de aquellos que conozco,
A algún lugar inhóspito.

Estábamos en el mejor lugar
Donde muelen los granos de café.
Y las mujeres son oblicuas
Y los chicos tan delgados como papel,
Barbas andrajosas sobre su mentón.
Miramos la escena desde afuera.

Supera el día de hoy,
Supera el famoso tumulto.
Te veo tal como eres.
Veo tu estrella.

Éramos hermosos antes de que esto decayera
Éramos hermosos antes de que los años pasaran
Y pusieran todo boca abajo
Éramos hermosos antes de ser sabios.
Éramos hermosos bajo la manta y bajo el cielo.

Estoy a la espera
Estoy en guardia todo el tiempo
Soy tu samaritano en turno
Haría lo imposible para sanar
El vacío que sientes
Al ayudar estaré vivo

Atrapados en nuestras raíces
Con nada más que nuestras botas
Íntimos por la cintura
Resolvíamos nuestras disputas
Sanábamos nuestros heridas
Vivíamos el placer que alguna vez perdimos

Éramos hermosos antes de que esto decayera
Éramos hermosos antes de que los años pasaran
Y pusieran todo boca abajo
Éramos hermosos a través del tiempo y el espacio
Se lo diré al sol y se lo diré a…

Si escuchas a la noche
Podemos oír a los locos pelear
A los zorros liándose
Pero la gente es inmune
Duerme tranquila en su habitación
Cuerpos crecen mientras sueñan
Hacen planes en sus mentes
Hacen el amor a amigos superficiales.
Amigos superficiales.

No eres demasiado viejo para cambiar.
La felicidad sólo llega después del dolor
Tuyo y mío

Éramos hermosos antes de que los años pasaran
y pusieran todo boca abajo
Éramos hermosos antes de ser sabios
Éramos hermosos con la manta y el cielo desvaneciéndose.

Éramos hermosos antes de que esto decayera
Éramos hermosos antes de que los años pasaran
y pusieran todo boca abajo.
Éramos hermosos a través del tiempo y el espacio.
Se lo diré al sol y se lo diré a tu rostro.
