The Beautiful Things We Miss Lyrics

Matthew West contemporary

Chorus:
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

The Beautiful Things We Miss Lyrics

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 


Luke 10 : 42 but one thing is needful: for Mary hath chosen the good part, which shall not be taken away from her.
