Ed Sheeran feat. Khalid: Beautiful People

We are, we are, we are

L.A. on a Saturday night in the summer
Sundown and they all come out
Lamborghinis 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 love and
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

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

L.A. mmm
Drove for hours last night and we made it nowhere (nowhere, nowhere)
I see stars in your eyes when we're halfway there (all night)
I'm not fazed by all the lights and flashin' cameras (uh)
'Cause with my arms around you, there's no need to care

We don't fit in well
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

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
Yeah, that's not who we are
We are, we are, we are
We are not beautiful

We are, we are, we are
We are not beautiful

Interpretation of Beautiful People

The music video “Beautiful People” deals with a couple that has the opportunity to get insight into the jet set life. The male narrator tells that they both feel uncomfortable when these rich and good looking people are around. He observes that ”broken homes” are behind the shiny facade and that you are “surrounded, but still alone”. He concludes: “We don’t fit in well, we are just ourselves”. 

This lyrics can be interpreted as a critics of the high society and shows us that it is not worth striving for.
