Day 278 – Beautiful

kept pouring all that gold in the cracks
trying to make a broken thing beautiful
burned all my fingers and cut my hands
I’m smashing the pieces now
’cause I was beautiful all this time
and you never saw it

turned the volume down in my car
for the last time, trying to keep the peace
but I kept the music with me
I sang when you were asleep
’cause it was beautiful all this time
and you never heard it

and now there’s so many condolences, so much
sympathy to go around and it’s far too late
to admit the truth about us
by now the secret is out about us
we weren’t beautiful all that time
and nobody knew it
