  • 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
    ('Round here) 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. mm
    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 them 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 Writer/s: Edward Christopher Sheeran, Fred Gibson, Khalid Robinson, Max Martin, Shellback
