I just wanted to share the words to this song with you guys! if you haven't had the pleasure of listening to the India.Arie cd Acoustic Soul... you are definitely missing out! this song is appropriately titled... it is BEAUTIFUL... & it moves me beyond words! I hope you enjoy them as much as I do... & find your own personal message between the lines. thanks!

(India.Arie, K. Hicks, B. Miller)

The time is right… I’m gonna pack my bags
& take that journey down the road
‘Cause over the mountain I see the bright sunshine
& I want to live inside the glow

I want to go to a place where I am nothing & everything
…that exist between every & no where
I want to go to a place where time has no consequences
Oh yeah… the sky opens to my prayer

I want to go to Beautiful
I want to go to Beautiful…

Please understand that it’s not that I don’t care…
but right now these walls are closing in on me
I love you more than I love life itself…
but I need to find a place where I can breathe

I want to go to a place where I can hold the intangible
& let go of the pain with all my might
I want to go to a place where I’m suspended in ecstasy
Somewhere between dark & light… where wrong becomes right

I want to go to Beautiful
I want to go to Beautiful …
