Dashboard Confessional - So Beautiful Lyrics

I heard that you were home again,
But you don't look like you're back to me.
With your focuses changing,
Your gaze is transfixed on
A point that I can't often see.

You've got your new ties. I've got my old knots.
You've got your inside line.
But you're never happy with what you've got.

Careful now, you're so beautiful
When you've convinced yourself
That no one else is quite as beautiful.

I heard that you were living well,
But you don't look like you're living to me.
Though the sparkle is gone, your smile is in place,
So that everyone watching will see.
You've got them all convinced.

But I know so well that you could list your friends,
But you can't count on them.

Hold it now, you've got everyone convinced
That you're alright
When no one else is quite as vulnerable.

As soon as you've got it you want something else.
It's not the sale that you love, it's the sell.
It's not the price, that's gonna cost you,
It's just the weight, that's gonna bring you down.

Hold it now, you've got everyone convinced
That you're alright
When no one else is quite as vulnerable.

Careful now, you're so beautiful
When you've convinced yourself
That no one else is quite as beautiful.

As soon as you've got it,
You want something else.
It's not the sale that you love, it's the sell.

It's not the price, that's gonna cost you,
It's just the weight that's gonna bring you down.
