lyrics

I spent the evening with beautiful people
Beautiful people who hide in the day
Beautiful people with charm like honey
Liquid voices that soothed me to stay
Beautiful people who late in the evening
Asked me to fetch my guitar and to sing
Cherish the moment, that’s what they tell you
You never know what tomorrow will bring

Gone from the heathland the snow of December
Green the lakeside in the twilight of May
Change the seasons, change the colours
Change the words of the songs that I play
When the sun is low in the heavens
Sometimes the light can play tricks with your eyes
I fell in love with the beautiful people
You may think it a small sacrifice

But each sacrifice leaves a mark
Regardless of whether it’s right or it’s wrong
And the hardest part is knowing your different
Knowing that somehow you just don’t belong

If you go down to the beautiful people
Beautiful people who hide in the day
Give my love to the beautiful people
Please explain that I just couldn’t stay
I could not bear to leave blood on their satin
I could not bear to leave tears in their eyes
Through a gate in the secret garden
I left without saying good bye
