‘00s Music Spotlight: You’re Beautiful by James Blunt

Butterflies, this song was out long before I started sharing my world with you guys but it definitely would’ve made my list of best songs of 2004. This song was released on English singer-songwriter James Blunt’s  Back to Bedlam album. Also, he’s on tour this year so if you’re a fan...go check him out!

My Favorite Lyrics from the Track:

My life is brilliant, My love is pure.
I won't lose no sleep on that, 'Cause I've got a plan.
She could see from my face that I was, Fuckin' high.
You're beautiful, it's true.
