  1. Beautiful

From the recording Beautiful

Hey all! We are very proud to share some new music with you. The lyrics are based on a poem written by Karin Kayfes (wife of Red Bird's Dan Gildea) about falling in love with Dan. 

Beautiful is a love song, which begins when you are truly seen by another person and ends when you fall in love with yourself. 

The music is beautiful and redemptive, and soulful to its core. Musicians are: Bre Gregg (vocals), Dan Gildea (guitar), Jeff Langston (bass), Charlie Doggett (drums) with the enhancement of Sydney Nash (TK & The Holy Know-Nothings) on Clavinet and Hammond B3.

Lyrics

This is what it was like to be a girl
Looking out from behind curtains of hair
Looking at pictures in seventeen
Pretending not to care

This is what it was like to be in love
Meant that this was meant… meant to be
The mirror that was his eyes made me small
Until I was too small to see... then he left me

So when I met you, I think you saw my shadow
Of the girl that you imagined I once was
Then you talked to me like I was real
Until I believed it, until I was

I been cute, and I been pretty
But you didn't mean just on the outside
You meant me
And I thought
That's exactly who I want to be
You saw me

I'm slowly learning to be, the woman you think I am
The person I wanna be in your eyes
I am growing into someone I can see
I'm so grateful you're looking back at me

I been cute, and I been pretty
But you didn't mean just on the outside
You meant me
And I thought
That's exactly who I want to be
You saw me
