I was a little indifferent to this song when I first heard it, but I liked it enough to give it a second chance. After listening to it several times it became one of my favorites. There is something about the light-hearted beat that really puts a spring in my step. The repetition of the two syllables at the beginning of each new verse is fun, the video is very active and fun, and it's a blast to sling along. I especially like the rapid-fire lyrics in the chorus. The actual theme of the song is a sad and messy breakup, but you can't really tell from how happy and cheery sounding the song it.

Single cover.

It Doesn't Have to Be Beautiful is a twee pop song by Slow Club. It was first released as a single on 2009-06-22 with a demo version of Wild Blue Milk as the B-side. It was then as track 4 on the album Yeah So on 2009-07-06.

I was a little indifferent to this song when I first heard it, but I liked it enough to give it a second chance. After listening to it several times it became one of my favorites. There is something about the light-hearted beat that really puts a spring in my step. The repetition of the two syllables at the beginning of each new verse is fun, the video is very active and fun, and it's a blast to sling along. I especially like the rapid-fire lyrics in the chorus. The actual theme of the song is a sad and messy breakup, but you can't really tell from how happy and cheery sounding the song it.

Lyrics

She said the sleepers on tracks have woken up
It's the end of the line I guess our luck is up
It was fun while it lasted cause nothing ever does
Love has lost its meaning and it was wasted on us

In the electrical storm you were running wild
You had a death wish you were a child
I came to bearing a lightning bolt
If you came back as the deep sea, I would come back as the salt

It's like your head is stuck in a tightening vise
Your ears are deaf to your friends' advice
Because you know that your heart will never be full
It doesn't always have to be beautiful
Unless its beautiful

Okay leave now leave now if you just can't stay
Because there's nothing worse than somebody pretending away
The years of their youth they will never get back
So I'll go home and practice the traits you said I lacked

Like listening to the thunder of your heart
And how with every other beat we grew further apart
Love is always going to be hard to you both
Never thinking that you'll ever love anyone else as much

But it's ugly, it's ugly now yeah I know
But you never give things enough time to grow
It's like driving through a carnival
It doesn't always have to be beautiful
Unless its beautiful

Baby I know it's over
Tell me (please) wait 'til you're sober
Now we know it's true
The waiting never quite felt like waiting
When the waiting was with you
Baby I know it's over
Tell me (please) wait 'til you're sober
Now we know it's true
The waiting never quite felt like waiting
When the waiting was with you

So let me tell you tell you a thing or two
About how to survive when there is a me and a you
It's awful, it's gruesome, it's something, it's cruel
Forever you will ask God if this happened to you

'Cause I'm always thinking, thinking about where you are
Who you're with and if your mind is far
From what we do when we're alone (Hey!)
Love is too much for me and now the wall needs to grow

So when your head stuck in a tightening vise
Your ears are deaf to your friends' advice
Because you know that your heart will never be full
It doesn't always have to be beautiful
Unless its beautiful

Baby I know it's over
Tell me (please) wait 'til you're sober
Now we know it's true
The waiting never quite felt like waiting
When the waiting was with you
Baby I know it's over
Tell me (please) wait 'til you're sober
Now we know it's true
The waiting never quite felt like waiting
When the waiting was with you
