God's beauty


I
i heard there was a secret chord / you take pleasure in the small things
that david played and it pleased the lord
but you don’t really care for music, do you
/ curious about the opinions of others, so much in fact, that it dictates many of your decisions
well it goes like this the fourth, the fifth
the minor fall and the major lift
/ interested in details, in how things are born and inspired; you have probably been a muse to someone in your lifetime, even if you don’t know it
the baffled king composing hallelujah / the things you have created have been on whims of inspiration, on fleeting whispers of revelations

II
well your faith was strong but you needed proof / you question things before committing to them, you are usually cautious but if you do commit you are there for life
you saw her bathing on the roof / you love someone; they come to your mind when hearing this verse
her beauty and the moonlight overthrew you / you are easily overwhelmed by beauty and emotion, probably the type of person to cry at movies
she tied you to her kitchen chair
she broke your throne and she cut your hair
/the aforementioned person controls you in some way and has hurt you, but you still love them despite their wrongs; you are very forgiving even if you try to be closed off
and from your lips she drew the hallelujah / you have beautiful things hiding inside you that are to be brought out by others

III
baby i’ve been here before
i’ve seen this room and i’ve walked this floor
/ you have experienced a lot in life in terms of emotions and are able to empathize easily
i used to live alone before I knew you / someone or something filled a void in your heart recently, one you didn’t even know was there
i’ve seen your flag on the marble arch / you have loved someone you’ve been jealous of and regret your jealousy
but love is not a victory march / you are aware of harsh realities in life
it’s a cold and it’s a broken hallelujah / someone/thing you once loved has been ruined for you for one reason or another and you are trying to move on

IV
well there was a time when you let me know
what’s really going on below
/ when you are sad or burdened with something, you don’t share, but are always helpful to others when they have problems
but now you never show that to me do you / others wish you would talk to them more about what’s going on in your life instead of being so closed off
but remember when i moved in you / others have fond memories with you that you may or may not remember, but they hope you do
and the holy dove was moving too / you are either religious or spiritual and in touch with the world and people around you
and every breath we drew was hallelujah / the memories you have with others are often sacred to the people involved and have a holy aura about them

V
well, maybe there’s a god above / you are open to new experiences and new ways of thinking, you are not stubbornly stuck in your ways and are very fluid (a good thing!)
but all i’ve ever learned from love
was how to shoot somebody who outdrew you
/ you’ve been betrayed before
it’s not a cry that you hear at night
it’s not somebody who’s seen the light
/ betrayal is not loud or glamorous and sometimes the person betraying doesn’t even feel guilty, you know the reality that sometimes you have to deal with the quiet burden on your own
it’s a cold and it’s a broken hallelujah / someone/thing you once loved has been ruined for you for one reason or another and you are trying to move on

VI
you say i took the name in vain
i don’t even know the name
/ you are unaware of many of your talents and fail to see what others see in you
but if i did, well really, what’s it to you? / you take other’s opinions with a grain of salt, and you manage to hide it even when they sometimes dig deep
there’s a blaze of light
in every word
/ you are maybe a writer, at least an artist of some kind; the type of person who finds beauty in everything before noticing the bad, or even finds beauty in the bad parts
it doesn’t matter which you heard / a bit of a cynic or nihilist, a trait that doesn’t clash but combines with the above somehow
the holy or the broken hallelujah / you are great at recognizing both the good and bad in the world; basically you are a person of good balance in most aspects of life

VII
i did my best, it wasn’t much / you don’t know your true potential or are not realizing what you are really capable of
i couldn’t feel, so i tried to touch / when you can’t do something, you don’t ever give up and always find a new way to figure it out
i’ve told the truth, i didn’t come to fool you / you are honest
and even though
it all went wrong
/ you are an optimist, even though you find yourself with bad luck sometimes… or most of the time
i’ll stand before the lord of song / you follow something fervently or without question, whether it be a religion, another person, or something you do
with nothing on my tongue but hallelujah / you might be good at meditating? you find it easy to forget or move on, and to clear your head

“Every flower created by Him is beautiful.  The brilliance of the rose and the whiteness of the lily do not lessen the perfume of the violet or the sweet simplicity of the daisy. If all the lowly flowers wished to be roses, nature would no longer be enameled with such lovely hues. And so it is in the world of souls, which is Our Lord’s living garden.”

Never forget that Marianne faced the Fairy equivalent of a freaking dragon

and scared it off so much with her own ferocious display that it immediately backed down and retreated with a whimper.  

She then went on to both lecture and comfort her sister, pull Sunny out of the Dark Forest, came back from a legit traumatic flashback of said Forest to once again lecture and care for her sister, and then, as a grand finale, told her fuckboy of an ex-fiancé just where he could put his song-and-dance attempt of a gas lighting faux-apology by singing her own more superior song. 

This has been a casual reminder that not only could your Fairy Princess never, our Fairy Princess did and she was a beautiful badass doing so.
