  • Well I should have told you I sold my soul to an angel
    I should have told you this world is not my own
    I should have wrapped you, wrapped you like a present
    I should have gotten to you before you were grown

    I should have whispered in your ear when you were lonely
    I should have taken you, taken you by the hand
    I should have told you you are, you are worthy
    I should have shown you, you are, you are a beautiful man

    I want to save you from yourself
    I want to save you from everybody else
    I want to be inside you when I can
    And I am doing the best that I can
    For my beautiful man

    I should have told you I would be difficult
    I should have shown you the scars on my soul
    I should have told you I wanted you to take care of me
    Without allowing you any of my control

    And I want to save you from myself
    I want to save you from everybody else
    I want to be inside you when I can
    And I am doing the best that I can
    You beautiful man
    I am doing the best that I can
    Oh, you beautiful man

    I should have told you I was not good enough for you
    I should have whispered I am unkind

    I want to save you from yourself
    I want to save you from everybody else
    I want to save you from myself
    I am doing the best that I can
    For my beautiful...

    ...save you from yourself
    I want to save you from everybody else
    I want to save you from yourself
    And I am doing the best that I can
    For my beautiful man
    For my beautiful man Lyrics licensed and provided by LyricFind
