A Beautiful Thing
by The Tragically Hip

In the ulcerating silence, perspective comes
The way it always does, for it's ransom
So randomly, somebody calls
The phone rings and it brings Niagara Falls

At 3 o'clock in the morning
You'd better be dyin', you were
So we talked about time and where it went
Unremarkable events and how
One day took two days and they got spent

How you'd continue
Carefully in degrees
Trying to do one true beautiful thing

And your beautiful thing
It'd be a beautiful thing
To see that beautiful thing continuing

I don't live there, I just commute
Secretly cradling a joint, I might puke
Fumble with the keys, under duress
The point is, this is, practice duress

3 o'clock in the morning
You'd better be dying' and you were
So we talked about things and where they went
Big remarkable events and how
Each day's a new day and they get spent

How you'd continue, artfully, like the breeze
Trying to do one true beautiful thing
Your beautiful thing

It'd be a beautiful thing to see
That beautiful thing continuing
Your beautiful thing continuing

Your beautiful thing will be
A beautiful thing to me
A beautiful thing continuing
Your beautiful thing continuing
