I know the song Beautiful by James Blunt is a good six months old if not older. I know it has hit this good amount of success right now. Yay. Something in the lyrics caught me this morning.
In the first verse he sings that he won’t lose hope, he won’t sleep on it, because “I’ve got a plan” to get this girl he saw on the subway who was with another man. Great. He has a plan. Let’s hear it. Second verse he sings that “I don’t know what to do. I’ll never be with you.” Wait a second. We’ve only had a chorus here. What happened to the plan? Why don’t you know what to do? Are you losing hope?
Well, maybe there will be some more hope coming up and he’ll rediscover the plan. Let’s find out what Blunt has figured out. “But it’s time to face the truth. I’ll never be with you.”
That’s unfortunate. He went from not losing hope and having a plan to facing the truth that he can’t possibly get the girl.
So what happened to the plan?
