Benson Boone’s newly released single, Beautiful Things, focuses the listener’s attention on the quiet details you gain when finding the perfect person, fighting for those beautiful moments, especially after enduring a difficult path of life.

Boone begins a tone country-tanged melody, soulfully admitting to the challenges faced. “For a while there it was rough.” The emotion in the song stays grounded but takes turns for the better as Boone, skillfully treads in love, “I found a girl my parents love.”

Boone admits to the triumphs and fears that replace your previous hardships when love is truly found with the lyrics “I know the things he gives me, / He can take away.” Boone ponders faith and love to navigate the beautiful things he has experienced.

Enter the refrain “Please stay, I want you, I need you, oh god, don’t take these beautiful things that I’ve got.” Boone bears his soul as a plea- almost prayer- that the beautiful things that he’s received get to stay in his life.

The song Beautiful Things explores the bitter-sweet sensation of the morsels of life we label beautiful things.
