08. Nice Naive and Beautiful

Beautiful Lumps of Coal
by Plumb



 

She’s only known heartache and pain
But she’s never known pain like this
She stands alone defending her name
When all that she’s done is be who she is
Well is it so wrong to be who we are
When all she’s done is fail

Cause she’s so nice, naïve and beautiful
Why does she get taken advantage
Why does she live in a world so cold
She takes advantage of the nice, naïve and the beautiful

Cold is the throne of her hardened heart
No one has seen the softest part
Day after night she holds an ache
And won't budge to show this secret place
Well is it so wrong to hang on to hurt
Maybe she could set it free

Cause she’s so nice, naïve and beautiful
Why did she get taken for granted
Why did she live in a world so cold
He took advantage of the nice, naïve and the beautiful

If you’ve been there you know
If you’re still there hang on
We’re all dealt our lumps of coal
What you do with it can turn beautiful
Well there’s a life outside of this madness
And there’s a face behind every scar
But there’s a love overflowing with gladness
Get out of that place that’s restraining your love
I said get out of that place that’s restraining your love



Behind the Song:
“On every album I do, I want to offer a hopeful song that’s geared toward people who’ve been abused in one way or another. Every abused person I’ve ever met harbors a sense of hopelessness. They feel like they’re damaged goods, or they don’t feel they’re good enough, or they think they deserve what they’ve gotten. What they don’t realize is that there are so many who have been there too, and that it’s not their fault that somebody yelled at them, or hit them, or touched them. I hope that this songs says, ‘If you’ve been there, you know what I’m talking about. And if you’re still there, hang on, because you can turn into something beautiful.’ This album is named after a lyric in ‘Nice, Naïve, and Beautiful:’ ‘We’re all dealt our lumps of coal. What you do with it can turn beautiful.’ A diamond, the most beautiful gem we have, is made from coal, one of the ugliest things there are. Whatever lump of coal you’ve been dealt in this life isn’t there because you did something wrong or you don’t deserve better, but because God has entrusted you with something that He knows you can handle and that will make you that much stronger.” – Tiffany Arbuckle Lee (Plumb)
