Beautiful Thing

Beautiful Thing

Wes Tillett

 

Everything that I oppose I can find in me

As I fail to draw a line between want and need

It’s not that I’m a hater

It’s that I love myself much greater

When I’m staring down my foe I’m staring right at me

 

You say, “Hey! What makes you so blinded to all the beautiful things?”

“Hey! You and me combine into such a beautiful thing.”

 

So sick of seeing everything fall apart

I so wish that I could give it all a whole new start

Spiraling out of focus

Pretending not to notice

I see the light flicker and fade in all the gathering dark

 

You say, “Hey! What makes you so blinded to all the beautiful things?”

“Hey! You and me combine into such a beautiful thing.”

 

In spite of the imperfection here, there’s forgiveness and resurrection still

In spite of the imperfection here, there’s forgiveness and resurrection still

In spite of the imperfection here, there’s forgiveness and resurrection still

In light of the crucifixion here, there’s redemption and resurrection

 

Hey, don’t let me be blinded to all the beautiful things

Hey, you and me combine into such a beautiful thing

Hey, don’t let me be blinded to all the beautiful things

Hey, you and me combine into such a beautiful thing
