One of my memories of Jesse is in London at an after party...Jesse wanted me to play something on the guitar and for whatever reason, I decided to "try" to play him You Are Beautiful by Christina Auguilera-and badly I might add as I can't play worth a shit after a few drinks. I have no idea why I would risk an ass chooing or eternal razzing for playing a pop tune at a hippy party but I did. Jesse didn't judge or laugh...well maybe he laughed a little, I know I did. It seems fitting so, this one's for Jesse: Everyday is so wonderful And suddenly, it's hard to breathe Now and then, I get insecure From all the pain, I'm so ashamed I am beautiful no matter what they say Words can't bring me down I am beautiful in every single way Yes, words can't bring me down, oh no So don't you bring me down today To all your friends you're delirious So consumed in all your doom Trying hard to fill the emptiness, The pieces gone, Left the puzzle undone, Ain't that the way it is? You are beautiful no matter what they say Words can't bring you down, no, no You are beautiful in every single way Yes words can't bring you down, oh, no So don't you bring me down today No matter what we do No matter what we say We're the song inside the tune Full of beautiful mistakes And everywhere we go The sun will always shine But tomorrow we might awake On the other side 'Cause we are beautiful, No matter what they say Yes, words won't bring us down, oh no We are beautiful in every single way Yes, words can't bring us down, oh no So don't you bring me down today Don't you bring me down today Don't you bring me down... today Goodbye Jesse. I feel privileged to have known you, even just a little.
