【歌词】
My life is brilliant
My life is brilliant. 
My love is pure. 
I saw an angel. 
Of that I'm sure.
She smiled at me on the subway(n. 地铁).
She was with another man. 
But I won't lose no sleep on that, 
'Cause I've got a plan. 
You're beautiful. You're beautiful, 
You're beautiful, it's true. 
I saw your face in a crowded place, 
And I don't know what to do, 
'Cause I'll never be with you.
Yeah, she caught my eye,
As we walked on by. 
She could see from my face that I was, 
flying high, 
And I don't think that I'll see her again, 
But we shared a moment that will last till the end. 
You're beautiful. You're beautiful. 
You're beautiful, it's true.
I saw your face in a crowded place, 
And I don't know what to do,
'Cause I'll never be with you. 
You're beautiful. You're beautiful. 
You're beautiful, it's true. 
There must be an angel with a smile on her face, 
When she thought up that I should be with you. 
But it's time to face the truth, 
I will never be with you.
