Beautiful people never have to be alone

When I was a kid I was obsessed with the sixties. I was convinced I was born in the wrong era. Perhaps made it easier to deal with the isolation of being anti-social, gave me a reason to just not fit in with my peers. Now, I have no excuse. Now I realize whatever time I was born in, I would face the same struggles, because they make me who I am, fortunately/unfortunately.

Anyway, this song always killed me.

Beautiful people
You live in the same world as I do
But somehow I never noticed
You before today
I’m ashamed to say

Beautiful people
We share the same back door
And it isn’t right
We never met before
But then
We may never meet again

If I weren’t afraid you’d laugh at me
I would run and take all your hands
And I’d gather everyone together for a day
And when we gathered
I’ll pass buttons out that say
Beautiful people
Then you’d never have to be alone
Cause there’ll always be someone
With the same button on as you
Include him in everything you do.

Beautiful people
You ride the same subway
As I do every morning
That’s got to tell you something
We’ve got so much in common
I go the same direction that you do
So if you take care of me
Maybe I’ll take care of you

Beautiful people
You look like friends of mine
And it’s about time
That someone said it here and now
I make a vow that some time, somehow
I’ll have a meeting
Invite everyone you know
I’ll pass out buttons to
The ones who come to show
Beautiful people
Never have to be alone
Cause there’ll always be someone
With the same button on as you
Include him in everything you do

He may be sitting right next to you
He may be beautiful people too
And if you take care of him
Maybe I’ll take care of you
