Beautiful Mystery Lyrics

when i'm dressed for the ninesI'm just a shirt and tieWith a taste for prestigeAnd beautiful mysteryBut clever girls dressed to killAre pretty bittersweetAnd better suited for grief Than beautiful mysteryOh beautiful mysteryFly by feather, this...

    This song is about the character Ezekiel "Easy" Rawlins, a black private detective played by Denzel Washington in the movie "Devil In a Blue Dress" and taken from the Easy Rawlins mystery series written by Walter Moses. His adopted daughter is named Feather. Easy Rawlins is a strong, imaginative person whose chronicles start just a bit after WWII, in which he nearly died; they're classics of the mystery genre and portray the life of a non-stereotypical black man who later becomes a single parent, a good man who works hard in a difficult business. The books were groundbreaking and are absolutely fantastic.

    This is just my interpretation as a Catholic (I think Adam Young is a Christian too), but I like to think that “beautiful mystery” refers to a girl’s modesty.
    I tried to look up other interpretations but everyone else just mentions that he’s in love, not trying to explain what exactly he means by “beautiful mystery.” I mean, I guess it’s possible that he meant it that vaguely... just that love is a beautiful mystery...

    Owl City is an American electronica musical project by singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Adam Young formed in 2007 in Owatonna, Minnesota. Young created the project while experimenting with music in his parents' basement. Owl City developed a following on the social networking site Myspace, like many musicians who achieved success in the late 2000s, before signing with Universal Republic in 2008.

    This interpretation has been marked as poor. view anyway
