As a poor guy who loves and hates the public transport services in Malaysia, who have no choice but to take the LRT everyday to work, the song “You’re Beautiful” makes me smile and sad at the same time.
You see faces, lovely ones, with the song playing on your ipod. You can’t help but smile, because you know every word in this song is true. I’ll never be with you.
And so often that it repeats itself on everywhere else, not only on the subway that James Blunt was. How often that you see an attractive person but with another man. You just don’t know what to do.
What can you do? you will let it slip by and face the truth. And write a song about it and become famous. What a brilliant life.
