Before I knew that I was blessed
When I was just like the rest of the people
Who never let dreams in their minds
Music would play and say
Maybe you're wastin' your time

Before I knew what good could be
When I couldn't see the need or the reason
For trusting in me or my star
Music would play and say
Hey, what a dummy you are!

And when I heard (when I heard) all the words about passion
Singin' to me about love of a fashion
That I never heard anywhere else
That's when I said,
"Gotta get some of that for myself"

And when I heard (when I heard) about hurtin' and healin'
Beautiful words about beautiful feelings
What lots of believin' could do
Beautiful music, I knew it just had to be true
You're beautiful, beautiful music!
Beautiful, beautiful music
Beautiful, beautiful music
Beautiful, beautiful music

Before I saw my life in lights
When I couldn't taste the nights I was missin'
I'd listen alone in my bed
And music would sing to me
Things no one else even said

And when I heard (when I heard) all the words about passion
Singin' to me about love of fashion
That I never heard anywhere else
That's when I said,
"Gotta get some of that for myself"
Beautiful, beautiful music

And when I heard (when I heard) about hurtin' and healin'
Beautiful words about beautiful feelings
What lots of believin' could do
Beautiful music, I knew it just had to be true
You're beautiful, beautiful music!
Beautiful, Beautiful music
Beautiful, Beautiful music
Beautiful, Beautiful music

Beautiful, beautiful music (yeah, yeah)
Beautiful, beautiful, beautiful music (yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah)
Beautiful, beautiful music (yeah, yeah)
Beautiful, beautiful, beautiful music (yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah)
Beautiful, beautiful music (yeah, yeah)
Beautiful, beautiful music (yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah)

And now I laugh and now I cry like a baby
Livin' and lovin' each day
And just maybe,
For all the good things that came true
Beautiful music
The best of my blessings is you
You're beautiful, beautiful music!
Beautiful, beautiful music
Beautiful, beautiful music
Beautiful, beautiful music
Beautiful, beautiful music
Beautiful, beautiful music
Beautiful, beautiful music
Beautiful, beautiful music
Beautiful, beautiful music
