(You Make Me Feel) Beautiful

I was vacuuming up fake pine needles,
when I realized it wasn't meant to be.
At the drag show I saw you dressing for
oh, just down the long, dark street.
And you were glowing, glowing again tonight.
I can see it in all your obsessions,
your sullen, open longing to quit.
and the broken sequin tensions.
It wouldn't be right to carry this on,
I'm not sure what I'm trying to say.
But you can't live in a city like this
and want everyone to stay the same.
I just love it when we kiss them,
if you want the honest truth.
I think you've deserved everything, darling.
and that plane ticket is the proof.
