  • The prettiest thing
    I ever did see
    Was lightning from the top of a cloud
    Moving through the dark a million miles an hour
    With somewhere to be

    So why does it seem
    Like a picture
    Hanging up on someone else's wall
    Lately I just haven't been myself at all
    It's heavy on my mind

    I'm dreamin' again
    Like I've always been
    And way down low
    I know

    The prettiest thing
    I ever did see
    Was dusty as the handle on the door
    Rusty as a nail stuck in the old pine floor
    Looks like home to me

    I'm dreamin' again
    Like I've always been
    And way down low
    I'm thinkin' of the prettiest thing Writer/s: LEE ALEXANDER, NORAH JONES, RICHARD JULIAN
