Beautifully



I heard this song for the first time on Pandora, and I remember thinking about what a dick this guy must be because of the chorus: "It's not that you're not beautiful, you're just not beautiful to me."

But after looking into it more, it's a really beautiful and sad song. There are several interpretations, but mine is that the guy in the song is gay and struggling to explain to a close female friend why he can't be with her. Jay Brannan is homosexual, so he very well may have faced this situation in his life.

Great song.
