lyrics

BEAUTIFUL LOSER

If only you'd had a chance 
You'd outshine the sun, or so you said
Glamour is in the ruins 
of a life that never was
Now you’ve sold your soul- no faith, no hope
Sliding down that slippery slope - oh, no
Alluring little victim
All tied up with velvet rope

Beautiful loser
Waiting for the world to rescue you
Beautiful loser 
It's better to lose than to face the ugly truth 

Perpetual potential
Is all you ever want to be- oh, no
The meaning’s nonessential
What could be is always greater than what is
It’s easier not to try
When you’ve failed yourself then it’s all a lie

Beautiful loser
Waiting for the world to rescue you
Beautiful loser 
It's better to lose than to face the ugly truth 

Always asking for my help 
But you never take my hand
Why you love that desolation 
I can never understand 

Beautiful loser
Waiting for the world to rescue you
Beautiful loser 
It's better to lose than to face the ugly truth 

Beautiful, you're beautiful
Beautiful loser
