Beautiful Mind

by Queen Hearts
(U.S.A.)

Verse One

People make jokes
People tear pages out of the book
They tell you to tape it together again
But they’d know it’s different if they’d just look

You’re a wreck of torn papers
You’re a mishmash of glue
And when the tape starts to peel,
You just put it back on
So they can’t get to you

And you practice the songs in the night, in the dark
And you get the notes wrong
And the harmonies all sound like trash ‘cause there’s no one
Singing along

Chorus

And you never tell them
And you never show them the scars
Cause it’s all for naught when
You’ve put yourself back behind bars

So you act out the smile for them
Cause you know they’ve been blind a long time
And you don’t feel the blow when
They take an axe to your spine
They take an axe to your mind
To your beautiful mind

Verse Two

Bandages cover
Bandages heal
But bandages don’t clear the marks and they
Can’t form a shield

There’s no right way to end this
The choice is all yours, but there’s not one to make
And when they finally catch up
You make up a lie
And they don’t know it’s fake

And you practice the songs all alone, when they’re gone
With the sky set ablaze
And the harmonies all sound like trash ‘cause they’ve torn out
The very last page

Chorus

And you never tell them
And you never show them the scars
Cause it’s all for naught when
You’ve put yourself back behind bars

So you act out the smile for them
Cause you know they’ve been blind a long time
And you didn’t feel the blow when
They take an axe to your spine
They take an axe to your mind
To your beautiful mind
That breathtaking mind
Don’t leave it behind
