A Thing of Beauty


A cool video to one of my favorite songs by the Irish band Hothouse Flowers.





Look out your window on a winters morning
Your breath is steam and there's frost falling
And the sun casts a spell upon the road
A thing of beauty is not a thing to ignore
Great song of beauty

Stand by the river on a moonlight evening
Lovers are loving and grievers are grieving
And the water does a dance upon the stones
I sit and listen, I will not ignore

A thing of beauty is not to be ignored
Can't you see, (can't you see)
It in the secrets of the dawn (thing of beauty)
Can't you feel (can't you feel)
Can't you feel it in the place that you come from (thing of beauty)

Face up to morning
Face up to day
Face up to reality
And face up to your ways

There is so much to breathe, see, know, understand and do
And I believe in things of beauty
Do you, do you?
Can't you see
Can't you see it in the secrets of the night (thing of beauty)
Can't you feel
Can't you feel it in the wonder of a birds first flight
Thing of beauty
Can't you see, can't you see it
See it in the gentle falling of the snow
Can't you feel, can't you feel
Like a mother feels when she knows her child has grown

Come to conclusions
I believe we all do
To look around us and the taste of the fruit
Set free your morals
It should be written on every door

A thing of beauty is not a thing to ignore
Can't you see (can't you see)
It in the magic when a boy meets a girl (thing of beauty)
Can't you feel it, can't you feel it
In the wonders of the changes of the world (thing of beauty)
Can't you see (can't you see)
It when right comes out of wrong (thing of beauty)
Can't you feel (can't you feel)
It as it goes on and on (thing of beauty)
Can't you see (can't you see)
It in what's left beneath the ground (thing of beauty)
Can't you feel (can't you feel)
It in the mystery of sound (of sound, thing of beauty)
Can't you see
Can't you see it in the glory of the sun (thing of beauty)
Can't you feel, can't you feel it in the wonder of the one...
One
Can't you feel one and only
One and only
Can't you feel it, can't you feel it, feel it
Thing of beauty
