Beautiful Now
Zedd Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

I see what you're wearing, there's nothing beneath it
Forgive me for staring, forgive me for breathing
We might not know why, we might not know how
But baby, tonight, we're beautiful now

We're beautiful now
We're beautiful now
We might not know why, we might not know how
But baby, tonight, we're beautiful now
We'll light up the sky, we'll open the clouds
'Cause baby, tonight, we're beautiful now, we're beautiful

We're beautiful

Wherever it's going, I'm gonna chase it
What's left of this moment, I'm not gonna waste it
Stranded together, our worlds have collided
This won't be forever, so why try to fight it?

We're beautiful now
We're beautiful now

We might not know why, we might not know how
But baby, tonight, we're beautiful now
We'll light up the sky, we'll open the clouds
'Cause baby, tonight, we're beautiful now, we're beautiful

We're beautiful

Let's live tonight like fireflies
And one by one light up the sky
We disappear and pass the crown
You're beautiful, you're beautiful

We're beautiful now
We're beautiful now (beautiful)
We're beautiful now
We're beautiful now

We're beautiful
We're beautiful, we're beautiful now
We're beautiful now
We're beautiful now




We're beautiful now
We're beautiful now, we're beautiful

Overall Meaning

The lyrics of Zedd's song "Beautiful Now" speak of being present in the moment and embracing the beauty of life while it lasts. The first verse begins with the singer taking note of what his love interest is wearing, implying a sense of closeness between the two. He asks for forgiveness for staring at her and breathing, which suggests that the sight of her takes his breath away. The second line may also express a sense of vulnerability, where the singer is at the mercy of the sight of his love interest.


However, the chorus, which repeats itself twice, emphasizes the beauty of the moment, despite not knowing why or how it happens. The singer speaks of "lighting up the sky and opening the clouds" – which may symbolize the possibility of a life filled with magic and wonder when we embrace our present circumstances. He repeats the phrase "we're beautiful now" to emphasize the temporary nature of the moment, encouraging everyone to be present and appreciate the beauty of their surroundings.

We might not know why, we might not know how
We may not understand the reasons for or the mechanics behind our current situation, but it doesn't matter

Despite our uncertainties, right now we are both feeling confident and attractive

Together, we will have such an impact on the world that even the sky itself will change


'Cause baby, tonight, we're beautiful now, we're beautiful
For this brief moment in time, we are both beautiful and nothing else matters

I am committed to following my dreams and pursuing success no matter where it may take me


What's left of this moment, I'm not gonna waste it
I want to make the most out of this time that we have together and not let it go to waste


Stranded together, our worlds have collided
We have ended up together in a particular circumstance despite not necessarily intending to do so


This won't be forever, so why try to fight it?
We should enjoy the moment and not try to resist the temporary situation we find ourselves in


Let's live tonight like fireflies
Let's live tonight with a sense of adventure and excitement, making each and every moment count


And one by one light up the sky
We will make an impact in the world one step at a time and light up the darkness with our positive actions


You're beautiful, you're beautiful
I want to emphasize that you are beautiful right now and nothing can take that away from you


We're beautiful
Together, we are both beautiful and nothing can bring us down

Those of you who don't know the meaning of this video song, then here it is (source - Wikipedia)

The video intertwines five different stories together. The first is of a woman who supposedly drowned her female lover in a pool;

the second involves an elderly Central American man who is journeying on an unsuccessful mountain climbing attempt;

the third involves the son of a man whose home is invaded by armed robbers;

the fourth involves Zedd portraying a liquor store robber who becomes hostile with the management;

and the fifth depicts a distraught girl laying down on a railroad.

As the song progresses, the video intercuts to scenes of family happiness, good times with friends, dancing and rejoicing before concluding the five stories.

The first woman's lover is pulled from the water before drowning, and the ex realizes the gravity of the situation;

the old man attempts to climb the mountain and falls, but survives, without reaching the summit;

The armed robbery victim's son confronts the hostiles at gunpoint and subdues them;

Zedd's character reflects over what sunk him to his current point in life and seems to change his ways;

the suicidal girl is missed by the train and reflects on her life and why she chose such an extreme act.

All five people in the stories see themselves in a reflection in various surfaces as their stories are closed and they all resolve to be better people!

EDIT: Thanks for the 1k likes 😊😊😊
