BEAUTIFUL MAN
Lori McKenna


I should have told you I sold my soul to an angel.
I should have told you this world is not my own.
I should have wrapped you, wrapped you like a present.
I should have gotten to you before you were grown.

I should have whispered in your ear when you were lonely.
I should have taken you, taken you by the hand.
I should have told you you were, you are worthy.
I, I should have shown you you are,
You are a beautiful man.

'Cause I want to save you from yourself.
I want to save you from everybody else.
I want to be inside you whenever I can.
I am doing the best I can,
For my beautiful man.

I, I should have told you I would be difficult.
I should have shown you the scars on my soul.
I should have told you I wanted you,
I wanted you to take care of me
without allowing you to gain any of my control.

I want to save you from myself.
I want to save you from everybody else.
I want to be inside you when I can.
I am doing the best I can,
You beautiful man.

I am doing the best that I can
oh, you beautiful man...

I should have told you I was not good enough for you.
I should have whispered
"I am unkind".

I want to save you from yourself.
I want to save you from everybody else.
I want to save you from myself.
I am doing the best I can,
For my beautiful....

Save you from yourself.
I want to save you from everybody else.
I want to save you from yourself.
And I am doing the best I can,
My beautiful man...

For my beautiful man...
