Lyrics

Beautiful Love Song
(words and music: Allan Dawson)

Holding ground, heavy head, I’m sifting through the memories,
Last night seems long ago, vague inconsistencies.
I held you, I wanted you, I played the way you played.
I kept my feelings from you, I didn’t communicate.

It’s just that every love song,
That I’ve ever written doesn’t mean anything anymore,
As I sit here beside you,
And dream on.

I’m trying to write a beautiful love song, for a beautiful lady.
I thought I could move on, but your love said please stay.
I look into your eyes and see your bright world unchaining.
It’s a beautiful love song,
You’re a beautiful lady.

I think of all the other girls, that came and went before you girl.
Still I keep my distance, when inside I know that’s that last thing I want to do
Oh, why do I never learn?
I think about tomorrow, what will it bring?
I’ve spent too many sleepless nights, wondering where I stand,
Oh, why do I try?

It’s just that every love song,
That I’ve ever written doesn’t mean anything anymore,
As I lie here beside you,
And dream on.

I’m trying to write a beautiful love song, for a beautiful lady.
I thought I could move on, but your love said please stay.
I look into your eyes and see your tired world unchaining
It’s a beautiful love song,
You’re a beautiful lady.
It's a beautiful love song, for a beautiful lady.
I thought I could move on, but your love said stay.
I look into your eyes time and time again,
It’s a beautiful love song,
You’re a beautiful lady.

I know what I want to say to you girl but somebody built a brick wall between us.
Tell me how can you say you don’t love someone when you hold him tight and give him everything?
It’s so hard for me to keep my head straight, in this twisted world that I can’t define,
As I hide these tears behind a poker face, I wonder girl will I see you tomorrow?

Ahhh ahhh,
Tomorrow.
Ahhh ahhh,
It’s just another day!

<solo>

Another night bites the dust, I feel further from the truth
As I walk around this place, cloaked in innocence, why do I worry?
I was born a single man, I guess a single man I’ll stay forever now
I’ll be moving along, my love’s seen better days,
But don’t get me wrong baby, I feel fine.

It’s just that every love song,
That I’ve ever written doesn’t mean anything anymore
As I lie here alone,
I dream about you baby.

This is trying to be a beautiful love song, for a beautiful lady.
I looked into your eyes, how I wish I could again.
But I guess I’ll be moving on since nothing ever changes.
It’s a beautiful love song,
For a beautiful lady.
