From the recording Eat Your Heart Out (2018)
"Beautiful" is so, well, beautiful. It's great and even necessary to hear this angelic incarnation of your voice, much as I also enjoy and admire its more robust expression of recent years. They complement each other, and it's nice to have such range and be able to use it to serve the expression. I so admire your courage in speaking directly about deep and difficult things, like love in all its nuance and stages. There is some great poetry in this song, "truth like water stains the hands of sentiment," "even though I've read this book the end is a surprise," and the chorus, with its affirmations, is just so lovely. It really lingers with me, a kind of mantra.
