Lyrics

Almost Beautiful (ver. 1)

We're almost beautiful, oh-whoa

Give it up, give it up
'Cause I love the rain
Live it up, live it up
'Cause I feel no pain

I be cryin' a hundred tears
Cryin', cryin' a hundred tears for you
I be cryin' a hundred tears
Cryin', cryin' a hundred tears for you

Don't leave me, no
Don't go away
Don't leave me, no
Don't go away
We're almost beautiful, oh-whoa
We're almost beautiful, oh-whoa

Yes and no
We do, we don't
I'm holding on
You're letting go

Almost Beautiful (ver. 4)

It doesn't hurt much anymore
I remember these streets
I thought the hotel ...
No one recognized me
I used to want to be here
Be here, be here so bad
I don't know why I love it so
Walk across the bridge

'Cause we're almost beautiful, oh-whoa
'Cause we're almost beautiful, oh-whoa
Yes and no
We do, we don't
I'm holding on
You're letting go
'Cause we're almost beautiful, oh-whoa

It doesn't hurt much anymore
I remember these streets
I thought the hotel ...
No one recognized me
I used to want to be here
Be here, be here so bad
I don't know why I love it so
Walk across the bridge

'Cause we're almost beautiful, oh-whoa
'Cause we're almost beautiful, oh-whoa
Yes and no
We do, we don't
I'm holding on
You're letting go
'Cause we're almost beautiful, oh-whoa

Almost Beautiful (ver. 5)

Mommy loved us, Daddy tried
Yeah, we had some good luck
We're a seven out of ten
We're a decent backup
I know it hurts so bad
It hurts so bad, I know
But put your chin up, show a smile
And try the best that you can

'Cause we're almost beautiful
We're almost, almost beautiful
We're almost beautiful
We're almost, almost, almost
Give it up, give it up
'Cause I love the rain
Give it up, give it up
'Cause I feel no pain
'Cause we're almost beautiful
We're almost, almost beautiful

All our old friends think we're cool
If they're thinking at all
People get old, move along
??? dropping the ball
It's a lonely life
It's a lonely life, but so what?
On the bright side, look at us
Have we ...

'Cause we're almost beautiful
We're almost, almost beautiful
We're almost beautiful
We're almost, almost, almost
Give it up, give it up
'Cause I love the rain
Give it up, give it up
'Cause I feel no pain
'Cause we're almost beautiful
We're almost, almost beautiful
