The story behind the lyrics of You're Beautiful is supposed to be about an ex-girlfriend of Blunt, named Dixie Chasey, even though he denies this assumption.
The song has also an accompanying music video, directed by Brandon Smith.
The music video interpretation is that it features Blunt taking his own life, but the director of the music video declares that:
The idea is built around the last line, where he says, 'I'll never be with you', and that idea of completely forgetting about something, of getting rid of that emotion, and moving on, and I think that the video is a sort of visual manifestation of that emotion
