It occured to me…

Perhaps James Blunt’s “You’re Beautiful” was based on Romeo and Juliet. If uh, it has been proven somewhere already that this is the case then please ignore my ignorance but look at this:

“You’re Beautiful”

My life is brilliant.

My life is brilliant.
My love is pure.
I saw an angel.
Of that I’m sure.
She smiled at me on the subway.
She was with another man.
But I won’t lose no sleep on that,
‘Cause I’ve got a plan.

You’re beautiful. You’re beautiful.
You’re beautiful, it’s true.
I saw your face in a crowded place,
And I don’t know what to do,
‘Cause I’ll never be with you.

Yeah, she caught my eye,
As we walked on by.
She could see from my face that I was,
Flying high,
And I don’t think that I’ll see her again,
But we shared a moment that will last till the end.

You’re beautiful. You’re beautiful.
You’re beautiful, it’s true.
I saw your face in a crowded place,
And I don’t know what to do,
‘Cause I’ll never be with you.

You’re beautiful. You’re beautiful.
You’re beautiful, it’s true.
There must be an angel with a smile on her face,
When she thought up that I should be with you.
But it’s time to face the truth,
I will never be with you.

Now, for those who are woefully not so familiar with the concepts of Romeo and Juliet…here is an overview.

But for those who can’t be bothered, basically Romeo sees Juliet at a party and falls in love with her immediately. But they can’t be together because they are from rival families, but despite all of that they still fall deeper in love. After a few unfortunate incidents, fakes deaths and banishments, Romeo kills himself after believing that Juliet was dead (she wasn’t). After Romeo dies, Juliet wakes up from her fake death, and sees her beloved Romeo dead. She then kills herself as well. So everyone dies.

Now, relate that to Blunt’s lyrics.

Yes?

De Fluffe, Out.
