Hello, beautiful
and aren't you sweet
you've got curls on your head
and hearts on your feet

Who are you today, my love?
a princess, or a star, or a fluttering dove?
are you a traveling rainbow?
have you gotten very far?

Listen to the rain
whenever you're in doubt
dissolved in clarity
you'll find out what life's about.

What will you do when your heart's been stolen?
and happiness is fraying, gray
you'll fly to me on broken wings
and wish until it's May.

I'd carry you around the world
to save your innocence
but you'll have to learn to climb, someday
even I can't break the fence.

Listen to the rain
whenever you're in doubt
dissolved in clarity
you'll find out what life's about.

Hello, beautiful
and aren't you brave
you bear your cross
and dig your grave
like it's nothing...nothing...

Hello, beautiful
and aren't you sweet
You've got stars in your hair
and hearts on your feet
with broken wings
and you'll fly back to me someday
and talk to me about the most
treacherous things
Hello, beautiful.
Hello, beautiful.
