A Song About Being True to Yourself

“Beautiful People” – Ed Sheeran ft. Khalid

Ed Sheeran is an English singer, songwriter, musician, and record producer from West Yorkshire, England.  He is one of the world’s best-selling music artists, with over 150 million records sold globally. Some of Ed Sheeran’s most famous hit singles include, “Thinking Out Loud” “The Shape of You” and “Castle on the Hill.” In 2019 Ed released the song “Beautiful People” featuring Khalid. The song encourages listeners to be true to themselves and to avoid a life surround by materialism and appearances. The “beautiful people” in the song refer to celebrities who appear to have everything but still live very sad empty lives.  That is why Ed Sheeran goes on to sing that he is not beautiful, therefore wishes to remain true to himself and avoid the superficial life that many celebrities lead.

“…we don’t fit in well, ’cause we are just ourselves.”

Lyrics

We are, we are, we are

L.A. on a Saturday night in the summer
Sundown and they all come out
Lamborginis and their rented Hummers
The party’s on, so they’re headin’ downtown

Everybody’s lookin’ for a come up
And they wanna know what you’re about
Me in the middle with the one I’m lovin’
We’re just tryna figure everything out

We don’t fit in well

‘Cause we are just ourselves
I could use some help
Gettin’ out of this conversation, yeah

You look stunning, dear

So don’t ask that question here
This is my only fear, that we become (hey)
Beautiful people

Drop top, designer clothes

Front row at fashion shows
“What d’you do?” and “Who d’you know?”
Inside the world of beautiful people

Champagne and rolled-up notes

Prenups and broken homes
Surrounded, but still alone
Let’s leave the party

That’s not who we are

(We are, we are, we are)
We are not beautiful
Yeah, that’s not who we are
(We are, we are, we are)
We are not beautiful (beautiful)
