 You're Only Beautiful


How did you come to fear my voice
And the love in it?

Was it that you saw my heart
And I let you in it?

That I guarded my trust like gold
Still I let you win it?

But you burned the city down
Went into the night
Cast aside your crown
To live a Ranger's life

You have your picnics in the graveyard
Then you kick the tombstones down
You stare at the sun
Then curse it for blinding you

Your unforgiving beauty
And every fatal word
Make me smile
While I'm dying

I've only seen you through my tears
And you refuse to let them dry
You say,"You're only beautiful when you cry."

So I laid this dream to rest
In the graveyard of a lie

Was I beautiful when I said goodbye?
Was I?

You were beautiful when I said goodbye

(from Mythos)
