Beautiful Song Lyrics
Hey. This one.
Yes, this one.
This is your pick? Out of all of the paintings we’ve seen, this is it?
Out of hundreds of paintings, your favorite painting is this piece of –
Hey, what’s wrong with it?
Well, it’s a little bit boring
Then you must be ignoring the most important bit.
I don’t see it.
Warren, we’ve been walking around,
Passing statues of angels and portraits of kings
So, you could choose any one
And we’re standing in front of this painting of everyday things
It’s beautiful, right?
No, it isn’t, it’s plain.
Well, part of our trip to the Met is I get to explain.
Here we go.
So, this is a painting of what?
It’s a painting of apples.
That’s right, that’s right.
So the artist has us looking at what?
Boring everyday things.
And the point?
The point is that things aren’t beautiful all on their own
Beautiful comes from reflection
Beautiful takes a person who makes a connection
You know what I mean?
For beautiful to happen, the beautiful has got to be seen
Okay. I like that shade of red right there
The spot where the apple is peeling
It’s deep as an ocean but lighter than air
It’s simple, familiar, and full of feeling
The color of Saturdays here at the Met
The color of shouting from rooftops
The color of feeling that life is okay.
The color of an ordinary day
