Shirley Bassey - He Was Beautiful Lyrics

He was beautiful
Beautiful to my eyes
From the moment I saw him
The sun filled the sky
He was so, so beautiful

Beautiful just to hold
In my dreams he was springtime
Winter was cold
How could I tell him

What I so clearly could see
Though I longed for him
Another ...
Trusted me completely, so I
never could be free
It was beautiful

Knowing now that he cares
I will always remember
moments we shared
Now it's all over

Still the feelings ling' on
For my dream keeps returning
Now that he's gone
For it was beautiful
Beautiful to be loved

    Dame Shirely, THE BEST, I've met her twice, South Africa and Scotland.

  2. Margret Sims

    I recall being in London in 1977 and someone mentioned her name; I said I had never heard of her....he explained it's all controlled -----America has Streisand and Europe has SB

    the version by the Welsh songstress Iris williams is outstanding although I love Cleo's and have some of her amazing recordings....give Iris williams a try on this one she even took the song into the charts..
