BEAUTIFUL (MARILLION)

Everybody knows we live in a world
Where they give bad names to beautiful things
Everybody knows we live in a world
Where we don't give beautiful things a second glance
Heaven only knows we live in a world
Where what we call beautiful is just something on sale
People laughing behind their hands
As the fragile and the sensitive are given no chance
And the leaves turn from red to brown
To be trodden down, to be trodden down
And the leaves turn from red to brown
Fall to the ground, fall to the ground
We don't have to live in a world
Where we give bad names to beautiful things
We should live in a beautiful world
We should give beautiful a second chance
And the leaves fall red to brown
To be trodden down, trodden down
And the leaves turn green to red to brown
Fall to the ground and get kicked around
You strong enough to be
Have you the faith to be
Sane enough to be
Honest enough to stay
Don't have to be the same
Don't have to be this way
C'mon and sign your name
You wild enough to remain beautiful?
Beautiful
And the leaves turn from red to brown
To be trodden down, trodden down
And the leaves fall green to red to brown
Fall to the ground, but we can turn it around
You strong enough to be
Why don't you stand up and say
Give yourself a break
They'll laugh at you anyway
So why don't you stand up and be beautiful
Black white red gold and brown
We're stuck in this world
Nowhere to go
Turn it around...
