You're (Still) Beautiful Eliza Hurwitz

There was a rumor circulating the other day that James Blunt was retiring from music. I have to admit that I never really liked his hit song “You’re Beautiful” and I’m not really a fan of his voice. But I was pretty upset namely because I feel like James Blunt never finished “You’re Beautiful.” In it, he speaks of “a plan” to get this girl, but he never fully outlines it. He just says she’s beautiful.

Luckily, the rumor was false. He’s not retiring. And lucky for him, I’ve taken it upon myself to finish his song. I outlined a logical plan I could imagine James Blunt taking in the song below. It is to the same tune as “You’re Beautiful,” so feel free to sing along!

You’re (Still) Beautiful

My life’s still brilliant.

My love still pure.

I saw that angel.

Again I’m sure.

She smiled at me on the subway.

She was with another man.

But I won’t lose no sleep on that,

‘Cause I’ve really got a plan….this time.

I’ll type “angel” in the search bar,

‘Cause I don’t know what else to look for,

I wish I had paid attention more.

Yeah, she caught my eye,

As we walked on by.

She could see from my face that I was,

Flying high,

And I do think that I’ll see her again,

‘Cause I’ve got a secret weapon called the Internet, my friend.

My search for “angel” produced no results.

Changed it to “girl with brown hair,”

And now I’m just waiting to see how that will fair.

Turns out “girl with brown hair”

Wasn’t the best search either.

Way too many results, it’s time to be distinct

What about a “girl with wings?”

Turns out that’s too similar to angel.

I guess I’m at a dead stop.

I wish I had paid more attention,

Instead of fantasizing about you flying on a mountaintop.

You may have failed me

But I’ve learned about myself

It’s time to face the truth

I should’ve listened for a name

Then maybe I could use Facebook to end this waiting game.

  1. It is really hillarious and I actually tried to sing it with these lyrics! Awesome!

  2. I actually thought he was retiring, because I’d read about it online and on Wikipedia.
