Beautiful Lumps of Coal
by Plumb



 

Look at me I'm twenty three
Beautiful a sight to see
Tonight

A little dress to draw the press
And I'll be leaving
All the rest behind

Well be pleased girl
If this is what you wanted
The whole world is watching you take the stage
What will you say

Aren't I lovely
And do you want me cause
I am hungry for something that will make me real
Can you see me and
Do you love me cause
I am desperately searching for something
Real

I close my eyes imagine time
Will not forget
My sacrifice

I numb the ache and decorate
My emptiness
Stand naked in the light

Well be pleased world
If this is what you wanted
This young girl is everything that you made
What will she say

Aren't I lovely
And do you want me cause
I am hungry for something that will make me real
Can you see me and
Do you love me cause
I am desperately searching for something
Real

The world goes home
The lights go down
My lipstick fades
Away

>Aren't I lovely
>And do you want me cause
I am hungry for something that will make me real
Can you see me and
Do you love me cause
I am desperately searching for something
Real




Behind the Song:
ďThe muse behind this song was Jennifer Lopezís dress at the 2000 Grammy Awards Ė the Versace dress that went all the way down to her navel. Now, I donít know Jennifer Lopez, and I certainly donít hate her, but when the media went off on her dress for weeks, I though, ĎWeíre such a sex-driven society, and thatís sad because thereís so much more out there thatís more beautiful than nakedness Ė yet we canít see that, because thatís all thatís shoved in our face.í At some point in your life, your boobs are going to start to sad, and youíre not going to look like you did when you were 23. Those people at the Grammys, or even in your high school English class, arenít going to be around anymore. The scene will change, the lights go down, and how you looked to them will fade away. What will you be left with? When youíre on that empty stage, when no one is there and your makeup is off, what will you have to offer? Thereís more to you than sexuality, and Iíd love to see you find what that is and emphasize that in your life.Ē Ė Tiffany Arbuckle Lee (Plumb)
