about

What can I say? I know it's cheesy and gushy and cliched. Mea culpa! And really, I shouldn't apologize, right?
I was (and still am) madly in love. The heavens opened, the earth moved, and fireballs and other portents literally filled the sky. Literally. No, really. Total strangers came up to us on the streets and thanked us for being in love. No, really. At one point, we were seriously scanning the horizon for unicorns. This song came out and I just went with it. In the tradition of "Dirty Dancing," and all the other love duets from the past 30+ years! Would love to hear Blake and Carrie do it. Or Ed Sheeran and Joss. Or Luther and Celine. Maybe even Alison and Robert?
For those truly in love, or at least feeling all those chemicals. They'll get it.

lyrics

Life Becomes Beautiful
© 2013 David Nyro

V1 (David):
I knew who you were
the moment I saw you across the room
Our lives flashed before my eyes
like some kind of cosmic sonic boom
(Sheila)
I already dreamed that you would come
I already dreamed you would be the one

Pre-chorus (David):
Come and take my hand, It’s all part of the plan

Chorus:
Ooh, life becomes beautiful, darling, whenever you come into view
Ooh, life is so wonderful, darling, with all of the things you do

Far from the crowds head in the clouds
Singing out loud I love you

V2 (David): I saw what we were,
the moment we shared what was in our hearts.
I felt we could be something greater than all our parts.
(Sheila): We knew it was meant to be from the start.
(Sheila and David): We knew it was destiny written in the stars!

Pre-chorus (Sheila and David):
Come and take my hand It’s all part of the plan

Chorus:
Ooh, life becomes beautiful, darling, whenever you come into view
Ooh, life is so wonderful, darling, with all of the things you do
Far from the crowds head in the clouds Singing out loud I love you

Instrumental with cello

Chorus:
Ooh, life becomes beautiful, darling, whenever you come into view
Ooh, life is so wonderful, darling, with all of the things you do
Ooh, life becomes beautiful, darling, whenever you come into view
Ooh, life is so wonderful, darling, with all of the things you do

Far from the crowds head in the clouds Singing out loud I love you
