Beneath Your Beautiful-Labrinth

You tell all the boys “No”
Makes you feel good, yeah.
I know you’re out of my league
But that won’t scare me away, oh, no

You’ve carried on so long,
You couldn’t stop if you tried it.
You’ve built your wall so high
That no one could climb it,
But I’m gonna try.

Would you let me see beneath your beautiful?
Would you let me see beneath your perfect?
Take it off now, girl, take it off now, girl
I wanna see inside
Would you let me see beneath your beautiful tonight?

You let all the girls go
Makes you feel good, don’t it?
Behind your Broadway show
I heard a boy say, “Please, don’t hurt me”

You’ve carried on so long
You couldn’t stop if you tried it.
You’ve built your wall so high
That no one could climb it.
But I’m gonna try

Would you let me see beneath your beautiful?
Would you let me see beneath your perfect?
Take it off now, boy, take it off now, boy
I wanna see inside
Would you let me see beneath your beautiful tonight, oh, tonight?

See beneath, see beneath,
I…
Tonight
I…

I’m gonna climb on top your ivory tower
I’ll hold your hand and then we’ll jump right out
We’ll be falling, falling but that’s OK
‘Cause I’ll be right here
I just wanna know

Would you let me see beneath your beautiful?
Would you let me see beneath your perfect?
Take it off now, girl, take it off now, girl (take it off now, boy,take it off now, boy)
‘Cause I wanna see inside
Would you let me see beneath your beautiful tonight, oh, oh, oh, tonight?
See beneath your beautiful, oh, tonight.
We ain’t perfect, we ain’t perfect, no.
Would you let me see beneath your beautiful tonight?

  1. Why would someone perceptive claim the beautiful is a wall? That just tells me they have built the wall. The very typical switch and bait here. So typical I would not have made it into a music video.

    • Sometimes it takes one person to break through that barrier. It isn’t always beauty. There’s the man that watches us while we sleep and brushes the hair from our eyes. We awaken and look at him with our mascara smudged, and morning breath. Yet they tell us that we are beautiful anyway. We look at them with their bedhead and sleep in the corner of their left eye. Yet they are beautiful to us. I wouldn’t trade being that beautiful. Ever. To melt the heart of my love and break through his beautiful, is the dream.

  2. We are all puzzles and labyrinths to each other from time to time. No matter how close I’ve gotten to people, even my wife of 42 years, I’m never certain that what I’m reading in their eyes matches the thought going on behind them. But, I also think that is what makes life and relationships exciting and romances mysterious connections that bind with some and unravel with others. As the phrase went in Shakespeare in Love; it’s a mystery.
