This song by City and Colour is such a genuinely sweet song. It’s not full of sappy flattery but of his true feelings. Whoever his beautiful girl may be, she must be doing something right. I thought I would share the lyrics with you guys.
I wish I could do better by you,
Cause its what you deserve.
You sacrifice so much of your whole life,
In order for this to work.
While I’m off chasing my own dreams,
Sailing around the world,
Please know that I’m yours to keep,
My beautiful girl
When you cry a piece of my heart dies,
Knowing that I may have been the cause,
If you were to leave, fulfill someone else’s dreams,
I think I might totally be lost.
You don’t ask for no diamond rings,
No delicate string of pearls,
That’s why I wrote this song to sing,
My beautiful girl.
