Beautiful Girl
William Fitzsimmons Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

Unfurl your gown
A distant fuller skin
I knew you once

My God the sun
The windows bear your bones
Reveal your crime
Beautiful girl
Let the sunrise come again
Beautiful girl

Your sailor eyes
The water in the well
A thirst to fill

Let down your arms
The purging of this dark
The fall to free

Beautiful girl
Let the sunrise come again
Beautiful girl




May the weight of world resign
You will get better

Overall Meaning

The lyrics of William Fitzsimmons's song "Beautiful Girl" present a melancholic tone that conveys profound emotions. The opening line "Unfurl your gown" could be interpreted as an invitation to reveal one's true colors and authentic self to the world. The next line "A distant fuller skin, I knew you once" suggests a reflection of the past, and the singer recognizes that there have been changes which caused distance in their relationship.


The second verse, "My God the sun, the windows bear your bones, reveal your crime" centers on the idea that the sun enlightens everything around it, putting on display everything that might have gone unnoticed before. The singer sees the beauty and vulnerability of the subject, but also an underlying sin, a criminal act. It is unclear what that act may be, but it could be a reference to any mistake or misdeed that an individual may have committed, and which still weighs heavily on them.


The chorus states "Beautiful girl let the sunrise come again, May the weight of world resign, You will get better," which can be interpreted as an affirmation of hope that, despite the struggles and hardships, there is a possibility of renewal and healing. It encourages the subject to move forward and embrace life, despite its difficulties.

How is it possible that this song makes me care so much about every one of the people in the comments. Their losses, Their loves, Their strengths, Their sadness. It’s like some sort of intersection, and regardless of what brought us all here, I care very much just because we all are. It’s like Magick and we need so much more of this in the world right now.

This song proves that music reaches something primal, instinctual and intrinsic in us...I cannot listen to this song without being brought to the brink of tears simply because of the beauty of it.

@thebrighteststarr

I'm 16 and I was recently diagnosed with bipolar disorder. Just when I thought there was no hope left for me, I heard this song. I now know the light I once had will return to me again and shine brighter than ever. and I have William Fitzsimmons to thank for that<3

@tombulpit6994

Hi Fayth. I'm 26 now and like you struggled very badly with my mental health when I was 16. Music like this really helped me find a way through the darkness. I hope you found your way back to the light too.
