How Beautiful You Are

This song is by The Cure and appears on the album Kiss Me, Kiss Me, Kiss Me (1987).

Original video
You want to know why I hate you
Well I'll try and explain
Remember that day in paris
When we wandered through the rain
And promised to each other
That we'll always think the same
And dreamed that dream to be two souls as one

And stopped just as the sun set
And waited for the night
Aside a gliterring building
Of glittering glass and burning light

And in the road before us
Stood a weary grayish man
He held a child upon his back
A small boy by the hand
The three of them were dressed in rags
And thinner than air
And all six eyes stared fixedly on you

The father's eyes said "Beautiful! How beautiful you are!"
The boy's eyes said "How beautiful! She shimmers like a star!"
The child's eyes eyes said nothing
But a mute and utter joy
And filled my heart with shame for us
At the way we are

I turned to look at you
To read my thoughts upon your face
And gazed so deeply into your eyes
So beautiful and strange
Till you spoke and showed me understanding is a dream
"I hate these people staring
Make them go away from here"

The father's eyes said "Beautiful! How beautiful you are!"
The boy's eyes said "How beautiful! She glitters like a star!"
The child's eyes eyes said nothing
But a quiet and utter joy
And filled my heart with sadness
For the way we are

And this is why I hate you
And how I understand
That no one ever knows or loves another
Or loves another
