Written about a good friend of mine who was going through a hard time.


When you told me you were happy, i was happy for you
And i looked in your eyes and i saw it was true
And we finished our tea, and we both went our way
That was a beautiful day

When i saw you, much later, things weren't the same
You had lost what you'd loved, and you weren't to blame
But you smiled and you made us some tea anyway
On that not such a beautiful day

Sometimes, life isn;t fair
Sometimes the things that you need just aren't there
And i know you'll be fine, and i know you'll be strong
But i know that it hurts, so i wrote you a song

And you don't need my pity, you don't need my advice
But i you've got the time, well, some tea would be nice
And i'll see that you're smiling and that you'll be okay
'Cos it can be a beautiful day
And i hope you have a beautiful day
