“You’re beautiful” song dissected

Everyone must have heard of the song “You’re Beautiful’ by James Blunt and if you study the meaning of the song, it’s actually Blunt staring at a girl on a train.

So.. it’s romantic that he’s praising the lady’s beauty but what if you are the girl’s boyfriend? How do you feel? Hehehe well that’s the angle Tom Gleeson took. He’s an Aussie comedian.

Listen to him “replying” to the song. You can read the lyrics below.

You’re Beautiful Lyrics
My life is brilliant x2
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.

Yes, 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.

Repeat Chorus

La la la
la la la la la la

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.

    For the girl’s boyfriend, maybe he can play this version of the song instead.


    That’s much better than James Blunt’s song.
