"Beautiful" lyrics - BO BURNHAM


You're the most beautiful girl I've ever seen.
And I know that.

But I can't rediscover it every fucking day.
I can't return to that epiphany
Every time my alarm clock goes off.
It's unnatural.

But what I can do, and do quite naturally,
Is become jaded and unimpressed by it.
I can see your beauty as normal,
As one of my life's many constants.

I can climb atop its shoulders and travel about,
Rolling my eyes at sunsets and rainbows,
Dismissing all the beauty of the world as
Less than average.

And I complain to you about it.
And you can deduce your beauty from that.
