Thank you, Titular! This one sung at me right off the screen. And as someone (I think it was Spinoza) once said, "Some people want to fill the world with silly love songs".


At a walk, on the run
in the air, never done
she is floating with the crowd
just like a cloud of floating black
like her hair, it's almost real
like her face, almost ideal
but it's the things that don't add up
that don't make sense
that bring you back

and I keep coming back
like another day
like I only want to stay with Martha Beautiful
she is flying high
I will testify
to the only reason why - she's Martha Beautiful
Martha Beautiful

people look, friends will stare
let 'em go, I don't care
I have fallen into place
into a place where they're not there
only her, like the moon
her faces change, like the tune
while she keeps the tides awake
for heaven's sake
she's everywhere

and I keep coming round
like another sun
and I know I've just begun with Martha Beautiful
she is oxygen
and she's carbon, too
and she's always something new, she's Martha Beautiful
Martha Beautiful

I can't believe what I just saw
she is not without her flaws
but after all
that's what makes her...

I keep coming home
like I know you're there
and I only want to be where Martha's beautiful
as the years go by
as they're wont to do
the only thing that's true
you'll be more beautiful
Martha Beautiful
