Beautiful Man - Lori McKenna

Well I should have told you I sold my soul to an angel
I should have told you this world is not my own
I should have wrapped you, wrapped you like a present
I should have gotten to you before you were grown

I should have whispered in your ear when you were lonely
I should have taken you, taken you by the hand
I should have told you you are, you are worthy
I should have shown you, you are, you are a beautiful man

I want to save you from yourself
I want to save you from everybody else
I want to be inside you when I can
And I am doing the best that I can
For my beautiful man

I should have told you I would be difficult
I should have shown you the scars on my soul
I should have told you I wanted you to take care of me
Without allowing you any of my control

And I want to save you from myself
I want to save you from everybody else
I want to be inside you when I can
And I am doing the best that I can
You beautiful man
I am doing the best that I can
Oh, you beautiful man

I should have told you I was not good enough for you
I should have whispered I am unkind

I want to save you from yourself
I want to save you from everybody else
I want to save you from myself
I am doing the best that I can
For my beautiful...

...save you from yourself
I want to save you from everybody else
I want to save you from yourself
And I am doing the best that I can
for my beautiful man
For my beautiful man
