beautifully music and lyrics by jay brannan
every time he goes, she dies every time she comes, she cries
he was her long, bright future in the middle of a wrong, dark road he loved her, but he wasn't too sure if he could return the love she showed when she said, "my love extends beyond the realm of being friends" he kissed her head then quietly he said
[chorus:] "it's not that you're not beautiful, you're just not beautiful to me" she said, "how beautiful do i have to be? when i look in the mirror, you're the only thing i see, and i have loved you beautifully"
well, ten thousand tears passed by but she never let him see her cry and he called up down one night he said, "let's get in the car and just drive"
he talked a lot about loneliness but why, she didn't know and some song about memphis was playin' on the radio she said, "let's stop the car and slow dance, won't you just give me a chance?" he took her hand and hoped she'd understand
well, she'll burn that bridge and build a house and swallow the smoke in her mouth and she'll feel the burn and then make the choice to put the fire in her voice
