Miss America
James Blunt Lyrics


Did someone give you something
To help you ease the pain?
Like the liquor in the bottle,
We watched you slip away
And I feel as if I know you
Through the bars of a song
Always surrounded but alone

But no goodbyes
You'll always be Miss America.
We watched you fly,
But nothing's free Miss America.
And as you fall apart
We just call it art.
Was it so hard to breathe?

Was the picture in the paper
Not the face you recognize?
Did the makeup never make up
For the pain behind your eyes?
'Cause I feel as if I know you
When you're on my silver screen
But I don't know the dark places that you've been.

But no goodbyes
You'll always be Miss America.
We watched you fly,
But nothing's free Miss America.
And as you fall apart
We just call it art.
Was it so hard to breathe?

Does another voice sing in Heaven's choir tonight,
To fill the silence left behind?
And I don't know what goes on in your mind
I'm sure it's enough to make my cry.
Someday we'll find you lived forever.

But no goodbyes
You'll always be Miss America.
We watched you fly,
But nothing's free Miss America.
And as you fall apart
We just call it art.
Was it so hard to breathe?

I saw James Blunt perform last night in Melbourne. He said this song was written about Whitney Houston. It completely changed the way I view this song, and I love it even more than I already did. <3

Oh wow. Thank you!

Dan Mullen

This is a great track from a great album. It's not often you listen to a CD and enjoy every track, but James Blunt's "Moon Landing" doesn't contain any filler - it's full of really catchy songs and is probably my favourite of his four studio albums to date.
