Octet - Beautiful Lyrics

2019 A Chamber Choir Musical
Octet the Musical - Beautiful Lyrics


Music and lyrics by Dave Malloy.

VELMA:
For so long
I saw myself so badly
Stupid and lazy
Sad and crazy
Fat and gross

I stayed in my little room
Singin' my ugly tunes
Tracing the lines hidden underneath my sleeves
Hashtag cuts
A forest of dead trees

But then
I found
A secret

There's a girl in saint-marie
Just like me
Just like me

She likes all the same toys as me
Makes all the same noise as me
And she noticed me
From across the sea

A girl in saint-marie
Just like me
Just like me

She is chunky
And she is beautiful
Beautiful
Beautiful

Her teeth stick out
She's got a sad little pout
And she is beautiful
Beautiful
Beautiful

She says her palms sweat too much
And some day I will touch them
I'll kiss her wrist
Just like this

A girl in saint-marie
Just like me

She says there is joy inside me
And I just have to trust where my heart goes
She says there is light inside me
But sometimes all I see are the shadows

She says there's a star inside me
Burning up my soul everyday
She says there is god inside me
And god is everything
Darkness and light
All the same, all the same
How I tremble when she types out my name

Oh you fool
You fool
It's all within yourself

Oh you fool
You fool
It's all within myself

How lucky for me
A girl across the sea
Who speaks to me
In whispering emoji

And I found her
And she found me
In the lonely ugly chaos
Of the internet

This ugly thing
Lets me sing
So beautiful
Beautiful
Beautiful

Yes I am
Beautiful
Beautiful
Beautiful

Beautiful
Beautiful too
