Beautiful [Unplugged Version]
by Marillion



Everybody knows, we live in a world
Where they give bad names to beautiful things
Everybody knows, we live in a world
Where we don't give beautiful things a second glance

Heaven only knows, we live in a world
Where what we call beautiful is just somethin' out on sale
People laughin' behind their hands
While the fragile and the sensitive are given no chance

And the leaves turn from red to brown
To be trodden down, to be trodden down
And the leaves turn from red to brown
To fall to the ground, to fall to the ground

We don't have to live in a world
Where we give bad names to beautiful things
Now, we should live in a beautiful world
We should give beautiful, a second chance

And the leaves fall from red to brown
To be trodden down, trodden down
And the leaves turn green to red to brown
They fall to the ground and get kicked around

You strong enough to beat
Have you the faith to be?
You're sane enough to be
Honest enough to stay

Don't have to be the same
Don't have to be this way
C'mon and sign your name
Your wild enough to remain beautiful
Beautiful

All the leaves turn from red to brown
To be trodden down, trodden down
And we fall, green to red to brown
Fall to the ground, we can turn it around

You're strong enough to be
Why don't you stand up and say?
Give yourself a break
They laugh at you anyway
So why don't you stand up and be
Beautiful, beautiful

Let, let, let go the rope
Stickin' this rope
Nowhere to go
Nowhere to go
Nowhere to go

What are you so afraid of?
Show us what you're made of
Do you so beautiful
You're strong enough to be
Beautiful
