Beautiful People Beautiful Problems

Blue is the color of the planet from the view above
Long live our reign
Long live our love
Green is the planet from the eyes of a turtle dove
‘Til it runs red, runs red with blood

We get so tired and we complain
‘Bout how it’s hard to live
It’s more than just a video game

But we’re just beautiful people
With beautiful problems, yeah
Beautiful problems, God knows we’ve got them
But we gotta try (lie, lie, lie)
Every day and night (lie, lie, lie)

Blue is the color of the shirt of the man I love
He’s hard at work, hard to the touch
But warm is the body of the girl from the land he loves
My heart is soft, my past is rough

But when I love him, get a feeling
Something close to like a sugar rush
It runs through me
But is it wasted love
(Let’s not waste it, love)

But we’re just beautiful people
With beautiful problems, yeah
Beautiful problems, God knows we’ve got them
But we gotta try (lie, lie, lie)
Every day and night (lie, lie, lie)

Hmm…
Hmm-hmm-hmm-hmm
Hmm-hmm-hmm
Hmm-hmm-hmm

Yeah we’ve gotta try (lie, lie, lie)
We gotta walk through fire (lie, lie, lie)
Because we’re just

Beautiful people with beautiful problems, yeah
(We’re just)
Beautiful problems, God knows we’ve got them, yeah
(Beautiful people)
Beautiful people with beautiful problems, yeah
(We’re just)
Beautiful problems, God knows we’ve got them

So beautiful…
Yeah, yeah
Yeah, yeah
Yeah, yeah

  • REVIEW: Fleetwood Mac at Rod Laver Arena Tuesday, September 3, 2019
    Given the well-documented dramas they’ve endured over the decades, you assumed by now Fleetwood Mac were pretty much invincible. However reuniting that classic Rumours-era line-up back for the 2014/2015 tour proved they had one more soap opera-style twist up their billowing sleeves. So in 2019, it’s either this Lindsey Buckingham-free version of Fleetwood Mac or […]
  • Fleetwood Frankenband a beautiful monster Tuesday, September 3, 2019
    FLEETWOOD MAC ★★★★ Rod Laver Arena, until September 9 Eighteen months ago, it seemed positively absurd that someone like Neil Finn – a well known musician and songwriter in his own right who had by no means put his feet up – could, or even would, join a band like Fleetwood Mac. Perhaps it still […]
  • Another Rumours deluxe set coming this fall Friday, August 23, 2019
    Rhino/Warner Bros. Records will be reissuing another deluxe edition of Fleetwood Mac’s 1977 album Rumours to coincide with the band’s remaining 2019 North American tour dates. The latest 4CD package, out October 25, compiles tracks from the previously released 2004 and 2013 reissues of the album. The package is a slimmed-down version of the 6-disc […]
  • Fleetwood Mac: Still going their own way Thursday, August 22, 2019
    Since it began as a British rock band in 1967, Fleetwood Mac has undergone 19 iterations while steadily adding Americans and, most recently, a New Zealander to its line-up. Its only remaining founding member is drummer Mick Fleetwood, who recently described each version of the group as “incredibly different musical episodes in this Shakespearean play […]
  • Seeing Fleetwood Mac in 2019 is a strange experience — but they’ve always been a strange band Wednesday, August 21, 2019
    If their songs weren’t so strong, endurance may be Fleetwood Mac’s greatest legacy Thirty minutes into Fleetwood Mac’s set at the Brisbane Entertainment Centre this week, Stevie Nicks admitted that she didn’t realise “Black Magic Woman” was a Fleetwood Mac song until well after she’d joined the band. It’s an astounding admission. Sure, the song […]
