"You're Beautiful"

It's a song by Gordon Lightfoot. He's singing to a woman he loves. He's telling her how beautiful she is. He feels blessed that such a beautiful woman loves him.

Say what you will about Gordon Lightfoot. He's a genius, and "You're Beautiful" is my favorite love song. Beautiful women who have entered and exited my life have heard me sing this song, but tonight I sing "You're Beautiful" to the beautiful woman in my mind. This woman is listening, and I imagine that one blessed day she will fall in love with me.
