• Matthew West - The Beautiful Things We Miss Lyrics

    From the album All In

    She puts on her makeup
    And the last dress she remembers that turned his head
    That time he said, “You look beautiful”
    At six, the front door opens
    And he doesn't even notice
    Kisses her cheek
    “Baby, when do we eat
    I'm starving”

    Oh, the beautiful things we miss

    I don't wanna miss it
    I don't wanna look back someday and find
    Everything that really mattered
    Was right in front of me this whole time
    Open up my eyes, Lord
    Keep me in the moment just like this
    Before the beautiful things we love
    Become the beautiful things we miss

    She hides out in her headphones
    Texting on her cell phone
    Daddy's girl built a world behind her bedroom door
    While he was working hard and providing
    Bigger houses still get divided
    Just yesterday she was on his shoulders, but today she's older
    Why do we get older

    We don't get to rewind
    There's no such thing as next time
    Help me remember, help me remember, we don't get this back
    They were right when they said don't blink
    It all goes faster than you think
    Help me remember, help me remember
    The beautiful things we miss

    Open up my eyes, Lord
    Open up my eyes, Lord
    I don't want to miss it
    No, I don't want to miss it
    Open up my eyes, Lord
    Open up my eyes, Lord
    Before the beautiful things I love
    Become the beautiful things I miss
