“Pretty the World”

23 November 2009

By Matt Nathanson (Beneath these Fireworks)

They tied off your arms
With all  their pretty charms,
And the same bad lines
Always get you, always get you.

And you hate the way they wash you down
And summer hums heavy now.
Still you bolded all your best words
So they’d have something to wrap their mouths around.

Show me how pretty the world is,
‘Cause I envy the way you move.
Show me how pretty the world is,
‘Cause I want something a little bit louder.

All spun awake,
I’m twisted in your heat.
God, you’re always burning up so bright
When there’s  someone there by your side.

Just take me home,
‘Cause I’m a mess enough clean,
And I’ll lie until I believe.

Show me how pretty the world is,
‘Cause I envy the way you move.
Show me how pretty the world is,
‘Cause I want something a little bit louder.

Show me how pretty the world is:
You’re brilliant when you try.
Show me how pretty the whole world is tonight.
Show me how pretty the world is,
Show me how pretty the world is.

I never thought I could be who I am.
I never thought I could see where I was.
I never thought all this was wasn’t me,
Wasn’t me now.

Show me how pretty the world is:
You’re brilliant when you try.
Show me how pretty the whole world is,
Show me how pretty the whole world is,
Show me how pretty the whole world is tonight.
