Beautiful (美) – EXO Guitar Tab

Beautiful, or 美 in Mandarin, is one of my favourite songs on EXO’s second album, EXODUS.

The melody is just as what its title says: beautiful, though I think the chorus gets repeated too many times and can get a tad boring after a few listens.

Sometimes, I find out or hear really interesting things when I scrutinise the songs as I try to figure out their chords. For Beautiful, I think the melody will make a really great musical notation exercise. I’ll probably tear my hair out before I finish the first verse.

As with all EXO’s songs, there are two versions – Korean and Mandarin – though they don’t seem to go by EXO-K and EXO-M anymore.

Here’s the Korean one first:

Here’s the English translation of the Korean lyrics:

Beautiful

In between your soft hair
Your eyes shine on me like starlight

You came to me at the end of a hard day
The desperate prayers of a small boy have reached you
Without color, scent or sound, you came into my heart
Like the color of the clear street after the rain
You resemble that freshness, my goddess

A flower rises in the sky, spring blossoms on the ground
You can’t stop it, it’s been decided since the start
My heart is pulled to you (love)
The moment your breath touches me, your scent colors me in

Beautiful Beautiful
Your body movement resembles a flower petal
Oh You Beautiful Beautiful
I worry that you will break
Oh You Beautiful Beautiful
So I can’t even hug you all I want
Oh You Beautiful Beautiful
My dazzling love

Beautiful Beautiful
Open the door of heaven (open the door)
Oh You Beautiful Beautiful
My eyes are drenched with joy (cheers explode)
Oh You Beautiful Beautiful
Even forgetting time for a bit (let’s go to Eden)
Oh You Beautiful Beautiful
I’m dreaming a dream of you forever

All of your words become wind and spin around me
Your tickling whispers tear everything up like a whirlwind
My heart can’t settle down
When my name touched your lips
I used to be meaningless but now I’m special

The sky is the color of the ocean, a golden light enters
(Look) You don’t know when it will come, a love like the sunset
It quietly spreads (love)
Even if you’re a different color, I’m being colored into your world

Beautiful Beautiful
Your body movement resembles a flower petal
Oh You Beautiful Beautiful
I worry that you will break (I’m afraid you’ll break)
Oh You Beautiful Beautiful
So I can’t even hug you all I want (in case you break)
Oh You Beautiful Beautiful
My dazzling love

Beautiful Beautiful
Open the door of heaven (only allow me)
Oh You Beautiful Beautiful
My eyes are drenched with joy (cheers explode)
Oh You Beautiful Beautiful
Even forgetting time for a bit (let’s leave together)
Oh You Beautiful Beautiful
I’m dreaming a dream of you forever

Oh so Beautiful (Oh you’re so beautiful)
Oh so Beautiful (so beautiful to me)
Oh so Beautiful (and I just gotta let you know, girl)
to me, to me.

Beautiful Beautiful
Your voice is a melody (your voice is a melody)
Oh You Beautiful Beautiful
Following the deep light
Oh You Beautiful Beautiful
More than any star in a legend (any star)
Oh You Beautiful Beautiful
You’re brighter

Beautiful Beautiful
Open the door of heaven (only allow me)
Oh You Beautiful Beautiful
My eyes are drenched with joy (I’m falling only into you)
Oh You Beautiful Beautiful
Even forgetting time for a bit (even forgetting myself)
Oh You Beautiful Beautiful
I’m dreaming a dream of you forever

  1. I guess when the song is in mandarin it sounds a bit more softer and a lot of “sh” sounds making it sound like a whisper, with that being said, makes it more appealing to certain people. ^.^ Have you tried singing the song? 😄

  2. Hi mammymokpo,

    The melody is hard to catch, which makes the lyrics a tongue twister when I attempt to sing it! So I haven’t had a decent go at the song yet.

    I must say, hats off to the Korean members who sing the Chinese version of the song and did a good job too!
