Lyrics Post: “Beautiful Wreck”, Shawn Mullins

This song came to mind yesterday; is a good one for sure. But also, feeling like train hit me, flu-ish, the song popped in my brain. I’m anything but beautiful, but feeling like a wreck.

Not Covid, I don’t think. I’ve been full vaxxed, a couple months ago; all the same, had my weekly Covid test at work yesterday, so we’ll see. I think it’s just a run-of- mill bug.

So anyway, this song came to mind, wanted to share.

It’s a goodie.

ENJOY.

“Beautiful Wreck”

I’ve lost count of the times I given up on you

But you make such a beautiful wreck, you do

There’s a tavern on the corner called the Milky Way

And you look so at home there it makes me afraid

And at the dark end of this bar

What a beautiful wreck you are

When you go too far, beautiful wreck you are

Like all the plans that you had from seven years ago

Like all the promises you made I watched them come and go

You put your keys in the car but it wouldn’t drive

With your hands on the wheel, lookin’ barely alive

I’m still sitting here waiting on the passenger side

For you to make up your mind

For you to make up your mind

And at the dark end of this bar

What a beautiful wreck you are

When you go too far, beautiful wreck you are

What a beautiful, such a beautiful, beautiful wreck you are

What a beautiful, such a beautiful, beautiful wreck

I’ve lost count of the times I given up on you

But you make such a beautiful wreck, you do

Yeah, you make such a beautiful wreck, you do

You make such a beautiful wreck, you do

And at the dark end of this bar

What a beautiful wreck you are

When you go too far, beautiful wreck you are

What a beautiful, such a beautiful, beautiful wreck you are

What a beautiful, such a beautiful, beautiful wreck you are
