That's So Pretty - Live Acoustic Version


Thistles are a thorny subject (da-dum-tsch!) (back to that in a moment)


So too is love as it turns out.


We think it's all rainbows and lollipops until the thing comes apart at the seams to reveal a layer of insecurity and miscommunication that might have taken up residency from the start.


In my upcoming book I go into detail about That's So Pretty and the deeper meaning of love being our greatest triumph and at the same time our greatest fear.


It's the place in our lives where we can reach this ultimate feeling of being fully accepted for who we are, or just the opposite... an ultimate rejection.


We can never find out which one it will ever be if we give up on love. We have to be willing to regroup, do the internal work to become better for the next time and open heartedly enter the theatre of love over and over, come what may.


Love takes courage.


In making this video I really wanted to capture these gorgeous thistles in the background and be surrounded by nature to symbolise this tricky journey of seeking love that we all are drawn to walking.


We're lucky enough here to have some more tiny birds chirping in the background to add to the prettiness of it all.


Enjoy.

THAT'S SO PRETTY


I truly could not believe

As she got down on one knee

How indifferent I was

With the true love she offered me


Whoever said it’s better to have loved and lost

Than to have never loved at all

Has never fallen in love and never met

With what awaits at the end of it all.

At the end of the fall.


That’s so pretty, oh and that’s pretty too,

baby everything always looked so good on you


The stinging of my sins remained when I met you

I spent so long looking into your eyes now they’re making me ever so blue

My body holds the memory of just how close you love to be,

how close you love to be held.


Now there’s a flash in my mind knows your face so well, so vivid, so clean

Now it places it each and every night in my dreams

In my drowning dreams.


That’s so pretty, oh and that’s pretty too,

baby everything always looked so good on you


The stinging of my sins remained when I left you

I spent so long looking into your eyes now they’re making me ever so blue

My body holds the memory of just how close you love to be,

How close you love to be held.

How close you love to be held.

How close you love to be held.


That’s so pretty, oh that’s pretty too,

baby now what to do because

everything but my love looks good on you

Everything but my love looks good on you

Everything but my love…
