Michael Sanderson is a singer/songwriter, originally from Australia, currently based in Germany.

The original song ‘Beautiful Girl’ is an acoustic ballad that blends melodic vocals, guitar and cello. The lyrics tell a familiar tale of the painful longing for an unattainable and unrequited love.


I can talk for hours lately
About the weather and nothing crazy
Am I loosing touch?
Am I loosing touch?

Why don't you grab me and shake me
And wake me up, to what's new lately
Am I out of time?
Am I out of time?

Beautiful girl, where did you go, where did you go?

Can't you see I'm fragile, don't break me
And underneath is what you can't see
Have we crossed a line?
Are we out of line?

And though I know you couldn't hear more maybes
I couldn't claim I said it plainly
Have we lost our chance?
Have I lost my chance?

Beautiful girl, where did you go, where did you go?
