It’s a beautiful day!

This song so close to my heart and soul sings about something I very rarely can translate into the spoken or written word.  It’s felt, courses through my veins, makes me want me to float and then sing at the top of my lungs.  It’s a beautiful day no matter what the weather is, no matter what the season is, It’s a beautiful day!

The heart is a bloom, shoots up through stony ground
But there’s no room, no space to rent in this town
You’re out of luck and the reason that you had to care,
The traffic is stuck and you’re not moving anywhere.
You thought you’d found a friend to take you out of this place
Someone you could lend a hand in return for grace

It’s a beautiful day,
the sky falls And you feel like
it’s a beautiful day,
Don’t let it get away

You’re on the road but you’ve got no destination
You’re in the mud, in the maze of her imagination
You love this town even if that doesn’t ring true
You’ve been all over and it’s been all over you

It’s a beautiful day,
Don’t let it get away
It’s a beautiful day,

Touch me, take me to that other place
Teach me love, I know I’m not a hopeless case

See the world in green and blue
See China right in front of you
See the canyons broken by cloud
See the tuna fleets clearing the sea out
See the bedouin fires at night
See the oil fields at first light
See the bird with a leaf in her mouth
After the flood all the colours came out

It was a beautiful day
Don’t let it get away
A beautiful day

Touch me, take me to that other place
Reach me, I know I’m not a hopeless case

What you don’t have you don’t need it now
What you don’t know you can feel it somehow
What you don’t have you don’t need it now
You don’t need it now

  2. “What you don’t have you don’t need it now”
    The simple sentences, that make all the difference. Among other lessons today, I’ll go to sleep clever. Thanks for the clip and song I did not know. 😉
