Why You're So Beautiful
A song written for Multiracial People

I know you haven't figured it out
How could you be both/and?
Not two halves but a whole – mysterious but it's clear,
And so hard to understand.
Like a good long laugh after a fight,
You're a story and sign of what's truly right.

Do you know why you're so beautiful?
Have you seen the sky when both the day and night are overhead?
And in between the dark and light there's a color seldom shed.
And the calling's high.
Now do you know why?
Do you know why?
 Listen to Why You're So Beautiful (4MB mp3 file)


When I look around this world,
I see you everywhere:
In music, even food; in everything that's art;
In the hope that the strongest bear.
When tension is transformed through resolution,
That's when beauty's born – it's like a revolution.

Do you know why you're so beautiful?
Have you heard the cry that pleads for violent conflict to be dead
When two who are from different worlds seek unity instead?
And peace comes by.
Now do you know why?
Do you know why?

You're remarkable, you're delightful,
You're precious and you're true.
Your entire existence shows just how much we've been wrong.
It lives inside of you.
