Beautiful

 
Ordinary Days Soundtrack Musical, 2010
CD  ·  DVD  ·  Sheet music

Beautiful WARREN
Hey. This one.

DEB
Really?

WARREN
Yes, this one.

DEB
This is your pick? Out of all of the paintings we’ve seen, this is it?

WARREN
Yes.

DEB
Out of hundreds of paintings, your favorite painting is this piece of –

WARREN
Hey, what’s wrong with it?

DEB
Well, it’s a little bit boring

WARREN
Then you must be ignoring the most important bit.

DEB
I don’t see it.
Warren, we’ve been walking around,
Passing statues of angels and portraits of kings

WARREN
So?

DEB
So, you could choose any one
And we’re standing in front of this painting of everyday things

WARREN
It’s beautiful, right?

DEB
No, it isn’t, it’s plain.

WARREN
Well, part of our trip to the Met is I get to explain.

DEB
Here we go.

WARREN
So, this is a painting of what?

DEB
It’s a painting of apples.

WARREN
That’s right, that’s right.
So the artist has us looking at what?

DEB
Boring everyday things.

WARREN
Well, yes.

DEB
And the point?

WARREN
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

DEB
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

WARREN
It’s simple, familiar, and full of feeling

DEB
The color of Saturdays here at the Met

WARREN
The color of shouting from rooftops

DEB
You bet!

WARREN
The color of feeling that life is okay.

DEB
The color of an ordinary day
