Something Beautiful

There's a cold taste on my tongue
something beautiful has come undone
I wait for you in the night
I wait for you in the night
I love you but you're gone from sight

And something beautiful inside
crumbles into the darkening tide
still I'll wait for you on the other side
I'll wait for you on the other side
right across this river wide

Won't you tell me what's wrong
can't even tell what's right
the melody of our favorite song
drifts away into the night
and something beautiful fades to white
something beautiful fades to white
white as your wedding dress
now it's just a tangled mess
but I'll wait for you on the other side
I'll wait for you on the other side

There's a warm touch on my skin
something beautiful burning like sin
I watch for you to rise
I watch for you to rise
I need you but your spirit flies

And something beautiful inside
leaves me vacant upon this riverside
but still my love for you won't be denied
still my love for you won't be denied
again I'll take that midnight ride

And something beautiful fades to white
something beautiful fades to white
white as your wedding dress
now it's all a tangled mess
but I'll wait for you on the other side
I'll wait for you on the other side
for something beautiful to be my guide

"Whatever makes you weird is probably your greatest asset"-Joss Whedon

sadly romantic, but it's good to hold on to the beautiful in our lives - too many tragedies touch us, such rare moments are very precious

Thus aches in a good way.
Achingly beautiful.
