lessons for the future, if you'll allow yourself to learn...

I heard this song on the radio yesterday, and I wasn't listening to the lyrics, because I was trying to figure out why the voice sounded so familiar. Well, the voice is familiar because it's my friend Vivian Green (I'm on an emotional, rollercoaster...) and I have one of her old albums. Haven't listened to it in a while, but I have always been a fan of her voice.

Well, her new single, "Beautiful" sounds like we went to lunch, I told her what I was going through, and she wrote this song for me. This is what I was trying to explain to him, this is what I meant when I told him one day he would understand. This song represents the adulthood of emotions. This is how I feel. I hope one day he'll get it.

I don't want to waste an entire album on you
I've been there, done that (yeah)
And I don't want to tell who, what, when, where, why and how
Cause who cares
No, nobody cares

But I hope you soon find out how to love
Once upon a time you wanted to learn
I thought I could teach you but you were more afraid
than willing
So when it comes don't push it away
One day you will find it is the greatest gift
And I hope you don't take advantage of it again

Hold her when she wants to be held
Don't yell at her when she's only trying to love you
Take her to her favorite place
more often than not
Don't take her kindness for weakness
'Cause I'm sure she'll love you alot
Support her in all that she does
Don't tear her down, lift her up
'Cause that is the worst thing you can do to someone you love
Put her high on a pedestal and tell her when she looks beautiful
Tell her when she looks beautiful

I used to think that I could not bear you to be with anyone but me
But I been there, done that (yeah)
And since then I have come to think silly of that whole mentality
I still want to find love too
No it won't be with you
I wish for everyone to one day find happiness and love
Including you (yeah)
And I don't want to go into details 'cause I've said enough
And its not my intent to hurt you no

But I hope you soon find out how to love
Once upon a time you wanted to learn
I thought I could teach you but you were more afraid
than willing
So when it comes don't push it away
One day you will find it is the greatest gift (gift)
And I hope you don't take advantage of it again

Hold her when she wants to be held
Don't yell at her when she's only trying to love you
Take her to her favorite place
more often than not
Don't take her kindness for weakness
'Cause I'm sure she'll love you alot
Support her in all that she does
Don't tear her down, lift her up
'Cause that is the worst thing you can do to someone you love
Put her high on a pedestal and tell her when she looks beautiful
Tell her when she looks beautiful

Tell her when she looks beautiful

Tell her when she looks beautiful
