Story Behind The Song

I wrote this song in response to a challenge to write something to pitch to female pop singers like Jewel and Avril. I think the song is on the money. I believe the recording would need to be transposed and rerecorded with a female singer to be ready for

Song Description

The protagonist experiences a role reversal in the song. If it were sung by a sexy young pop-singer, one can imagine them being desired by someone who they don't notice until that person smiles. Then everything changes, as things often do in relationships

Yeah I don't deny it's true
I didn't even notice you at first
You travel in disguise
You might have made me curious
But you were way too serious
That cold look is a weapon

But you're beautiful
Yeah, you're beautiful
Yeah, you're beautiful

Yeah I know I passed you by
Now I now the reason why
playing cool gets you nowhere
I probably told you where to go
Where you went - I don't know
We move in different circles

But you're beautiful
Yeah, you're beautiful
Yeah, you're beautiful

When a smile escapes
You're gone without a trace
It takes my breath away
I'm startled for a moment
When a smile escapes
I see another face
You take my breath away
I'm drowning in a moment

Yeah, I don't believe it's true
I didn't even know that it was you
You found a new disguise
Then you made me furious
Why can't you be serious
That smile is a weapon

But you're beautiful
Yeah, you're beautiful
Yeah, you're beautiful
when you smile
when you smile
when you smile
