Beautiful for being my baby

Beautiful for being my baby

Everything, I do it for you

Prison couldn't stop me

Beautiful for being my baby

Beautiful for being my baby

Catch my breath as I look at you

Can't stand it I've gotta go

But I can't, I've gotta stay

Just a little longer

Summer love

I love you

There's a time

For me and you

Beautiful for being my baby

Beautiful for being my love

See you move in the mirror

See you move through my tears

I'm the mirror man who won't fall

Cracked glass, seven years

Beautiful for being my baby

Beautiful for being my love

Beautiful for b?ing my baby

Officially appears on
