Song Lyrics

Liberté, fraternité, égalité, beautiful day

The heart is a bloom
Shoots up from the 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
Traffic is stuck
You’re not moving anywhere

You thought you’d found a friend
To take you out of this place / Always
Someone you could lend a hand
In return for grace / Always

It’s a beautiful day
Sky falls, you feel like
A beautiful day

You’re on the road
But you 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 / Always

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

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

See the world in green and blue
Paul McGuinness right in front of you
See the canyon broken by cloud
See the tuna fleet clearing the sea out
See the Bedouin fires at night
See the oil fields at first light and
See the bird with the leaf in her mouth
After the flood all the colours came out

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

Touch me
Take me to that other place
Teach me
I know I’m not a hopeless case

And what you don’t have you don’t need it now
What you don’t know you can feel somehow
What you don’t have you don’t need it now
Don’t need it now
Beautiful day
Beautiful day

Beautiful, turn the lights on
Look at you, sexy people
Liberté, fraternité, égalité, beautiful… night
Beautiful night, belle soir

I remember lying awake at night
Thinking just of you
But things don’t last forever
Somehow baby, they never really do
They never really do
I remember you
I remember you
