The Beauty of "Beautiful"

"I wanna got to a place where time has no consequence oh yeah, The sky opens to my prayers." (Photo Source)

A few years ago, I heard a song by India Arie named "Beautiful" (off her Acoustic Soul album). It instantly became one of my favorite songs. I have gotten in a habit of playing this song in the evening before I go to bed. It instantly brings me peace and quiets my mind, especially during stressful and chaotic weeks. I find comfort each time I hear the words of the song.

Goodnight :)

"Beautiful"

The time is right
I'm gonna pack my bags
And take that journey down the road
Cause over the mountain I see the bright sun shinning
And I want to live inside the glow
Yeah

I wanna go to place where I am nothing and everything
That exists between here and nowhere
I wanna got to a place where time has no consequence oh yeah
The sky opens to my prayers

I wanna go to beautiful, beautiful, beautiful,
I wanna go to beautiful, beautiful, beautiful,
I wanna go to beautiful, beautiful, beautiful,
I wanna go to beautiful, beautiful, beautiful,

Please understand that it's not that I don't care
But right know these walls are closing in on me
I love you more than I love life itself

But I need to find a place were I can breathe
I can breathe
I wanna go to place were I can hold the intangible
And let go of the pain with all my might

I wanna go to a place where I am suspended in ecstasy
Some where between dark and light
Where wrong becomes right

I wanna go to beautiful, beautiful, beautiful,
I wanna go to beautiful, beautiful, beautiful,
I wanna go to beautiful, beautiful, beautiful,
I wanna go to beautiful, beautiful, beautiful,
