welcome to the Lyric Lounge

Beautiful Girl (New Song!)

One thing that I know
it will get better
each and every drought
ends in the river

if I were a diviner, you’d be awash in rain to cool your fire
oh to cool your fire

There could be winds of change in my auburn hair
but I’ll tie it back for now
and when the bitter breeze carries a trace of fear
we’ll persevere some how

we’re gonna push on through, pretty girl
just like we always do, beautiful girl
I know the world can be cruel, pretty girl
you’re gonna make it ’cause you’ve got love on your side

the truth of letting go
lies in the answer
that when the storm subsides
I’ll still be there to hold you

there’s beauty in your violence, and the dissonant melody i hear you sing
oh I love to hear you sing

there could be winds of change in my auburn hair
but I’ll tie it back for now
and when the bitter breeze carries a trace of fear
we’ll persevere somehow

we’re gonna push on through, pretty girl
just like we always do, beautiful girl
I know the world can be cruel, pretty girl
you’re gonna make it ’cause you got love on your side

pretty girl

one thing that I know
is it will get better…

  7. This song means a lot to me. It means that no matter what people say or do that you know inside that you are beautiful in every way possible. This song is amazing and I know just by reading this that it is true. (Your performance at the juno awards was amazing!)

    Just watched you on the Junos. First of all you look beautiful. I am so happy you are still writing and performing. Your song Beautiful girl is beautiful and inspiring. When we go through some rough rough times it is so nice to have songs written that speak to us when we need hope and feel love.

    Thank you

    Such an inspiring song. To know that every one has situations in their lives that literally knock them to their knees, but it will get better and eventually you can stand back up again.

    Thank you for the music!

    The best way to give feedback on this lyrics is to say that it’s worthy of the voice that sing it. Not many artists can achieve this synergy and Sarah is definitely irreplaceable when it comes to that.

    Three words can summarize what this song has given me:
    Harmony, Comfort and Faith.

    I had a devastating loss two months ago thatreallych.aged my life and forces me to shift my future pans, my career, and really reevaluate everything. I am also a redhead and this song means so much to me…a conforting, soft spoken anthem that says “you will make it. You’ll be ok.” As a feminist however, I do wish she’d chosen not to focus on the girl in the song being “pretty”, she could have chosen to make it about a “wonderful” girl or a “brilliant” girl. Just my two cents.

    I heard your song last night on The Tonight Show. It really moved me and had to go to your website to read the lyrics line for line. One our nieces has been struggling with emotional issues which has led to substance abuse. Thankfully, she just is now getting help and know she will make it….she is a beautiful girl with a beautiful soul… Your song could not have been more timely for me to hear. Your music has always moved me deeply. You are truly a beautiful soul, Sarah and a beautiful woman inside and out! Thank you!! Told our niece to check out your performance on the show and to now check out your website. Her young daughter has a soulful, beautiful voice and know she will want to sing it as well.

    I’ve always been a huge fan of Sarah’s. Several of her songs have a significant meaning to me because I associate them with specific times/memories in my life. However, when I heard her sing “beautiful girl” on Jay Leno on January 30th, my husband looked at me and said “you could’ve been the songwriter for that song….that’s you and Allie (our daughter) who graduated high school June 2013, a day we weren’t sure we would ever see. She had heart surgery at 4 days old and unexpectedly underwent brain surgery 2 years ago. I’ve always told her “you’re my beautiful girl”……my heart hurt for her as I watched her struggle to overcome insecurities of her heart surgery scars as she became a teenager. So you can imagine the tears I cried for her quietly alone at night as I, once again, watched her fight away her fears…not a fear of the scary new door we were about to walk through and not a fear of surviving the surgery but a fear if returning to high school with almost half of her beautiful, long blonde hair shaved off…my beautiful girl that has never cowered away from the many challenges life has presented to her…to fear “THIS is going to be what breaks her and I was helpless to protect her from it”. But as always my beautiful girl, the person I admire most in this world, took a big breathe and walked through those scary doors of school with no fear of what may await her on the other side of them. And once again she not only survived yet another scary unknown, she conquered it….and as she reminded me before getting out of the car that morning “don’t forget to breathe mom, your beautiful girl believes she’s beautiful…I get it now, I finally see me the way you’ve always seen me….beautiful…even without hair, I promise I’m not scared today”. For graduation I gave her the journal I had written throughout her life, of her life, of our love story….titled “My Beautiful Girl”. She’s the reason you should come to Charlotte NC during your tour…so she can see you sing her song!! Thank you!!!

    To love someone is to learn the song in their heart and sing it to them when they have forgotten. —Author Unknown

      Fellow Macsters: Just to let you know, Sarah comes on at about the 37:30 mark. She performs her song brilliantly but there is no couch time. And if you don’t trust my opinion of her outing, I think that Miley said, “That was so awesome.”
      Hello Sarah: Matching the hair to the lyrics? Cool. You were looking beautiful and pretty. (Do I get a high five for that, at least, or just two minutes for flagrant flattery?)

    These past few months have been a emotional heart break for me, as I lost a nephew, my sister and my grandmother during the Holidays. If that was not enough, I was recently diagnosed with tumors in my neck and thyroid. I will find out later this month what will happen medically besides the surgery. In reading the lyrics to this song, I find strength, in facing the fear, I’m going to push through because that’s all I can do! Oh how I love to hear you sing and in it all, I will find comfort to get through that in which I will need to. You are right, “The truth of letting go, lies in the answer”! PS Thank you!

    My close friend is going through the last stages of letter her mother, who id 91, go. She doesn’t have another single relative alive. I think of her as my long lost sister. Especially since we’ve met late in our lives.
    We met through singing in choir and after asking me to recommend a voice teacher. She takes voice lessons from the music director of the opera company my husband and I are in. She took it upon herself to learn how to sing and had really blossomed from knowing absolutely nothing about it before 2 years ago.
    What this song means to me is a story of a woman who is in pain and the other being her rock and encourages her to persevere.
    It can also be the woman taking and encouraging herself. And, the hair is kind of like the French poem of The Tree. The hair representing business and the details of life which can become overwhelming in grief.
    Anyway, I’m going to share this song with her tonight.

    I watched Jay Leno just for Ms. McLachlan! This song makes me think of my 2 year old daughter. To me, it means that life is tough and the world is cruel and that she can get through anything because love is on her side. My love to be exact, because the love a mother is endless and knows no bounds…it is the strongest love in the world. Pulling your auburn hair back, I have auburn in my hair, but it is a symbol of preparation to me. Getting ready to face the wind and hard times…it is a beautiful sing.

    I needed to hear this beautiful song from the amazing Sarah McLachlan. I have had occasional “interruptions” in my life due to a chronic illness (Lupus) & have been dealing with a recent flare (kidney related) for 3 weeks. I’ve gracefully dealt with these “interruptions” in the past, even with them being worse flares than this current one, but for some reason, this flare has beaten me up emotionally, I think in part because I’m going through this for the first time as a mom (I have a beautiful 2 year old daughter). I feel sad that my little girl has such a helpless mom right now. Thank goodness for her resilience! Today was a better day & I’m starting to see the light at the end of this lonely tunnel and this song spoke directly to me. Thank you, Sarah. I appreciate your confidence in me! I cannot wait for this album!

    Okay, I am envisioning this song as a mother singing it to her daughter or a big sister to a little one. They are both gentle souls and the world is a little tough for them. This is a consoling song. I am going to suggest that pretty girl be replaced with gentle soul. There is more to females than just looks and pretty girl and beautiful girl are too much the same. Also, I don’t find beauty in violence so much. More so, I find beauty in anger because it can show spirit in the right circumstances. But, it’s your song Sarah and being the musical genius that you are, I am sure you will take any lyrics and make a beautiful song.

You don’t mix class and ass on the same show. Anyway Sarah, hopefully, you will post your performance on this website later or some kind Macster will stick it on YouTube and put a link here. Have a safe flight and enjoy your time down there.

    This song reminds me of my sister who had beautiful auburn hair. She fought a battle for five years. She was in her forties and lost her sight and was also told that she had adrenal cancer. She never gave up but lost her battle ten years ago. She had plenty of love on her side which helped her with her fight.

  82. I cannot wait to send this to my beautiful daughter. As she struggled to find her light again after the current nearly took her permanently under, I would stroke her long auburn hair and hope to sooth us both in some way. Longing for a flicker of light, a glimmer of hope. It works. This amazing poetry captures so perfectly a homecoming to the true beauty in each and every one of us. To be our own hero, and connect with the Great Love and elevates us beyond whatever form of suffering inspires the willingness for the richer, authentic life experience. Melody Jan 30? Yay, my birthday! I love it, thank you. Happiest of birthdays to you today Sarah, my fellow Aquarian ;)

    Dear Sarah,
    I am so happy you are writing again, the lyrics in this song are speaking to the pain and struggle in all of us as women. As a mother, I want to protect my Beautiful girl from the storms and fears in life. I cant help but feel you are speaking to your daughters and to all women as well. The women in your life are hearing you, and your words bring hope and light.
    I have followed your career since the early 80′s. In my twenties living in Toronto your music brought comfort and passion to my soul as i struggled to find out who I was. Your first cd I bought by chance after brousing the new releases at Sams on Young street. You have captivated me ever since. I feel a kindred spirit to you, I have grown up with you and I feel like your music speaks to me as it does so many of us
    I remember shaking your hand back in ’93 on a small stage in St.John’s NL ( my home town). Your warm and genuine smile as you shook my hand was mesmerizing.
    I too have 2 children and no longer feel the pain i felt in my 20”s and 30′s but a strength and desire to protect them. The words in this song speak to a younger woman now going through the same growth and struggle. The gift you have to put these feelings to music is one of the most compelling of any artist.
    I love that you give back to community and are involved with everyday people. You have stayed grounded and real which is utterly refreshing. I admire your strength as well as your vunerability which you share through your music. It is this and more that has kept me listening and feeling so much from your music. I love you Sarah and always will.
    Susan

It has given me hope, comfort, strength, encouragement, and the will to go on and face anything! I am so happy and excited about your new album and can’t wait to hear and own it! I still have never heard your new song “beautiful girl” , just read the lyrics now on here for the very first time and I already love and could relate to the song! Just by reading the lyrics to beautiful girl once I can already grasp its true meaning and significance! It’s about self perseverance. It’s a song to one self to look inside you and find your inner strength to stand up, fight and move on. To trust and believe in yourself. To believe that you are worth more then one gives one self credit for! To love yourself first and teach us how to heal ourselves. To believe and trust our instincts and our intuitions. Know your worth and value! Beautiful song to remind us that we can do anything and overcome everything! Thank you Sarah again for your incredible talent and gift that god chose you to give to the world!

    This is my “tune” now. Thank you Sarah. I got a big battle with my weight lost now. Maybe not a big deal for so many people, but it is one of the hardest thing that someone can do it. Through all my life I have been healthy, a Physical Educator, an active person, but since I moved to Canada (I’m from Brazil) my habits changed. I have two kids now and I’m obese, it means, I was never able to run with them, to play outside without lots of pain and really enjoy it. They don’t know their mom that was strong and felt beautiful too. I even had to deal with doctors that told me that all my problems were because I’m fat and just try to pass me to the stomach “ring”. “No Thank You”. Your song makes me stronger and stronger in this fight and I convince myself already that the fight is over and I’m re-learning to enjoy food and educating myself. I started the Dukan Diet that is working beautifully, and I don’t regret ! I already lost 7kg and have another 80 to loose it. I’ll be singing all the way until I’ll get there, thanks to you. No more battles, but “life”! xoxo (PS: please, come back to Québec City, was the best concert of my life 2 years ago, during the summer festival)

    Nobody is ever truly alone in life although it may feel like it at times. There is always somebody near that has experienced or is experiencing the same type of pain and turmoil. It is so important to really know those close to you. We are all “in this” together, family and friends.

    Winds of change..my favourite phrase in the song. Change is always difficult and is absolutely inevitable. The way to get through is to have someone safe willing to “show up” or “step up”. In this song it sounds like Sarah is wiling to be that space, that place. Sometimes you know, instinctively, how much someone else needs it, when you didn’t get it enough yourself. Your greatest gifts are born from your greatest wounds. I completely love the terms of endearment used throughout the song… It gives a sense of intimacy, closeness and ultimate care & protection.

    I really love Sarah and her work. It is so important in my life and has such an impact on who I am and want to become.

    I first heard this song in 2012 at the Bridge School Benefit concert in California. My just turned-10-year old daughter and I were up on the bridge watching my husband and son on stage when this song began. I loved hearing the intro, knowing my daughter is close in age to yours, and knowing how much my girl had already been through in her short life since the premature birth of her little brother, a now Bridge School graduate. As I listened to the words, and tears silently streamed down my face I felt closer to you than ever before, because someone else out there knew what it meant to work hard at raising a happy, healthy girl in this crazy mixed up world we live in. Thank you Sarah, for writing “our” song!!!

    As I read and heard this song it lead me to think of the most current thing that I encountered the previous day which was a young women that a worked with just had a miscarriage and I had just spoken to her. All the pain I felt 20 years ago rushed in as I had a miscarriage and I knew her pain and loss of hope. I tried to comfort her. I thought if only she could here this song!
    Then it lead me to think of women in general – how we are so strong but at times we have to just push through each day, especially for single mothers, stay strong and it will get better.
    Then I read it again, and it was clear to me that God was speaking to me. He was telling me He is always with me, holding me and carrying me through the tough times. His love is greater and to give all worries to Him because he gives me refuge and his promise to me is it is “going to get better” (eternal life). I can hear this song on Christian radio.

    This new song, “Beautuful Girl”, really hit home for me as it relates to my beautiful sixteen year old daughter. As soon as I saw the title of the song I had a feeling it would be something she needed to hear. These past been few months have been painful for her with friend issues. She has been the target of cruelty by some really mean girls at her high school; girls that used to be her friends.

    This song absolutely captures the essence of how she feels and what she needs to “hear” as far as overcoming. It is a beautiful song that will undoubtedly touch millions of hearts as always.

    Thank you for being a light in this world! God bless you…

I would suppose that you sing these words to your daughter, which is in the sunrise of her teenage: it is a loving, optimist (but lucid) mother trying to show and to convince her daughter that she is strong, that she can face any “bitter breeze”, ’cause “things will get better” somehow. I love this song, I am looking forward the new album (as I did since I met your music). Please, Sarah, include Brazil (Belo Horizonte or Rio de Janeiro) in the 2014 tour. Thousands and thousands of brazilians (like me) would be honoured to hear you live here. With all my admiration and tenderness. E.

    When you become a mother, even if you’re a melancholic, rather lonely person (as I am, in fact), you have to tell your children they’re gonna make it through hard times, that “it will get better”, you force yourself to be the best, the strongest person you can be, not indulging in the weakest parts. Being a parent, to me, means…renouncing on my dark sides! This is what the song means to me. Your music is one of the deepest influences in my life, as a woman and as a parent.

    Some words that I have come up with so far that could be substituted for diviner include thaumaturge, magician, weather witch, rain-doctor, rain-maker, or rain-dancer, although those last three would involve a repetition of rain.

    I think the song has multiple meanings, that it could be addressed to multiple people, including girls in trouble in general, Sarah herself, her daughter(s), and maybe even me again though I doubt that, though it would be an interesting followup to the beautiful f**ked-up man of Building a Mystery. But now I can’t wait to hear Sarah sing it; that will evoke more comments for sure!

    The words to this song have really struck a cord here. I even wondered if maybe you had been secretly hiding in our house somewhere, listening quietly. My oldest Daughter lives in Belfast at Uni, I am in London. And every day I actually tie back my hair while we put her worries to rest on the phone. She worries about everything that young women do, Past and future, and we have had quite a roller coaster with me having had a Heart Attack in Febuary of last year. My pretty little Girl makes my day with just her voice, and my Aubern hair is now slowly turning Grey. This one will make me cry when i hear you sing it that i am sure of. xxx

  152. “Things will get better”
    Words Many of us say every day, and hoping we take notice even to the smallest of change..

    But a diviner would be able to predict the weather but not change it.

      So what would be a three syllable word or words for someone who can do weather changing magic that could be substituted for diviner?

        Maybe weatherwitch? But I think there may be a better traditional term and I have asked about it on some relevant Usenet newsgroups, though those have faded in recent years.

      But maybe she meant she would dowse (divine the location of) an underground spring which when tapped would spray out as rain, producing a rainbow as in Cyndi Lauper’s True Colors. :-)

  154. Sarah, thank you for posting the lyrics of this lovely song. They’re really interesting, beautiful, evocative, a bit mysterious, bittersweet, and encouraging. I’m always intrigued by your lyrical style because you come from such a different angle to my own perspective, causing me to pause and ponder their meaning, however the words still hit their mark in my heart because they come from a heart, YOURS. Tonally the song is integrated with the theme and paints with luscious, emotional melodies layered in darker soulful hues commiserate with the pain of love. I love it! Big hugs to you!

    For some reason this song reminds me of Cyndi Lauper’s True Colors. Since I currently don’t have cable, I hope that after the Leno show Sarah posts the video clip on this web site.

  157. I am going to print these lyrics out and give to the girls who I volunteer for. They are in the poorest community in our city and I want to keep on reminding them that things will get better. They need to stay strong and remember that they will always have someone behind them cheering them on.

  159. The nicest thing about being able to write songs like you do is that you can listen to it (or sing it) later on in your life to remind yourself of what you momentarily forgot. No wonder you usually say music is cathartic to you :)
    Thanks for sharing the catharsis with us with such great emotion and wise words.

    Hey Sarah… My mom passed at age 95… I was an only child… And had an only child… We took care of my mom as she passed into the heavens… My beloved dtr.. Shared her love and professional talents as a hospice social worker… We let go with love as my mom loved us both. I am still here to hold my daughter as my mom from the heavens holds us both! We learn love from those who love us,

    To me it feels like a woman who has written this song to herself to remind and reassure her that everything is going to be okay. That everything has a way of working out, and to have faith in that.

    Obsessed with this song, I absolutely love it, it is beautiful, and inspiring, it reminds me of things my mom would say after I come home from a rough day of school or when I am going through a rough patch
