l Cried for You Lyrics

(Katie Melua)

You're beautiful so silently,
It lies beneath a shade of blue.
It struck me so violently,
When I looked at you.

But others pass, they never pause,
To feel that magic in your hand.
To me you're like a wild rose
They never understand, why

I cried for you,
When the sky cried for you,
And when you went
I became a hopeless drifter.
But this life was not for you
Though I learned from you,
That beauty need only be a whisper.

I'll cross the sea for a different world,
With your treasure, a secret,
For me to hold.

In many years they may forget,
This love of ours or that we met,
They may not know
How much meant to me.

I cried for you,
And the sky cried for you,
And when you went,
I became a hopeless drifter.
 
But this life was not for you,
Though I learned from you,
That beauty need only be a whisper.

Without you now I see,
How fragile the world can be.
And I know you've gone away,
But in my heart you'll always stay.
I cried for you,
When the sky cried for you,
And when you went,
I became a hopeless drifter.
But this life was not for you,
Though I learned from you,
That beauty need only be a whisper;
That beauty need only be a whisper.
