A THOUSAND BEAUTIFUL THINGS

by

Annie Lennox


Every day I write the list
Of reasons why I still believe they do exist
~ a thousand beautiful things ~
And even though it's hard to see
The glass is full and not half empty
~ a thousand beautiful things ~
So, light me up like the sun
To cool down with your rain
I never want to close my eyes again
Never close my eyes
Never close my eyes

I thank you for the air to breathe
The heart to beat
The eyes to see again
~ a thousand beautiful things ~
And all the things that's been and done
The battle's won
The good and bad in everyone
(this is mine to remember)
So
Here I go again
Singing by your window
Picking up the pieces of what's left to find

The world was meant for you and me
To figure out our destiny
~ a thousand beautiful things ~
To live
To die
To breathe
To sleep
To try to make your life complete
So
Light me up like the sun
To cool down with your rain
I never want to close my eyes again
Never close my eyes
never close my eyes ...
That is everything I have to say
~ that's all I have to say ~

Sit back, take a breath, and watch

this.

Great clip, fabulous music from Annie

Enjoy
