Liberté, fraternité, égalité, beautiful day

The heart is a bloom
Shoots up through 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
The 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 bass
Always

It's a beautiful day
Day
The sky falls, you feel like
Day
It's a beautiful day
Day, day

You're on the road
But you've 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
Day
Don't let it get away
Day
Beautiful day
Day, day

Touch me
Take me to that other place
You get to 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 canyons broken by clouds
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 a leaf in her mouth
After the flood all the colours came out

Day, day

It was a beautiful day
Day
Don't let it get away
Day
A beautiful day
Day, day

Touch me
Take me to that other place
Reach 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 off
Bruilleres
Look at you, sexy people
Liberté, fraternité, égalité, beautiful night
Beautiful night, belle soir
Beautiful
