the prettiest thing lyrics – norah jones

the prettiest thing
i ever did see
was lightening from the top of a cloud
moving through the dark a million miles an hour
with somewhere to be

so why does it seem
like a picture
hanging up on someone else’s wall
lately i haven’t been myself at all
it’s heavy on my mind

i’m dreaming again
like i’ve always been
and way down low
i know

the prettiest thing
i ever did see
was dusty as the handle on the door
rusty as a nail stuck in the old pine floor
looks like home to me

i’m dreaming again
like i’ve always been
and way down low
i’m thinkin’ of the prettiest thing
