Song meaning of Beautiful Things by Benson Bonne, and what it is about


Shortly after relocating to Los Angeles in September 2023, Benson Boone started writing the song. At first, songwriter Jack LaFrantz started two separate compositions over two nights in a row. He suggested blending the two songs into one, which became "Beautiful Things". Boone credited his motivation to a relationship he had just started.


In the song, Boone muses on love, life, and the "volatility of happiness" in this "ballad about the meaning of life."


"Beautiful Things" topped the charts in a number of other nations, including Australia, Canada, Germany, Ireland, New Zealand, and the United Kingdom, and it peaked at number two on the Billboard Hot 100.


Song lyrics of Beautiful Things by Benson Bonne


For a while there, it was rough

But lately, I've been doin' better

Than the last four cold Decembers I recall

And I see my family every month

I found a girl my parents love

She'll come and stay the night, and I think I might have it all

And I thank God every day

For the girl He sent my way

But I know the things He gives me, He can take away

And I hold you every night

And that's a feeling I wanna get used to

But there's no man as terrified as the man who stands to lose you

 

Oh, I hope I don't lose you

Mm, please stay

I want you, I need you, oh God

Don't take

These beautiful things that I've got

 

Please stay

I want you, I need you, oh, God

Don't take

These beautiful things that I've got

 

Oh, ooh

Please don't take

 

I found my mind, I'm feelin' sane

It's been a while, but I'm finding my faith

If everything's good and it's great, why do I sit and wait 'til it's gone?

Oh, I'll tell ya, I know I've got enough

I've got peace and I've got love

But I'm up at night thinkin' I just might lose it all

 

Please stay

I want you, I need you, oh God

Don't take

These beautiful things that I've got

 

Oh, ooh

 

Please stay

I want you, I need you, oh God

I need

These beautiful things that I've got
