How beautiful you are... by The Cure


you want to know why I hate you
well, i'll try and explain
you remember that day in Paris when we wandered through the rain
and promised to each other
that we'd always think the same
and dreamed that dream to be two souls as one
and stopped just as the sun set
and waited for the night
aside a gliterring building
of glittering glass and burning light
and in the road before us
stood a weary, grayish man
he held a child upon his back
a small boy by the hand
the three of them were dressed in rags
and thinner than air
and all six eyes stared fixedly on you
the father's eyes said "beautiful! how beautiful you are!"
the boy's eyes said "how beautiful! she shimmers like a star!"
the child's eyes said nothing but a mutant ,utter joy
and filled my heart with shamefullness the way we are
the way we are
i turned to look at you, to read my thoughts upon your face
and gazed so deeply into your eyes
so beautiful and strange
till you spoke and showed me understanding is a dream
"i hate these people staring, make them go away from me"
the father's eyes said "beautiful! how beautiful you are!"
the boy's eyes said "how beautiful! she glitters like a star!"
the child's eyes said nothing but a quiet and utter joy
and filled my heart with sadness for the way we are
the way we are
this is why i hate you
and how i understand
that no-one ever knows or loves another
or loves another
