And we all wanna believe in a beautiful lie
A beautiful lie

from Ryan Leslie – Beautiful Lie Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

Ryan says:

“I wrote “Beautiful Lie” about a real-life scenario that proved to be a mirage. The backdrop was Paris and the beauty of the image was intoxicating. Though I knew that inevitably our disparate worlds would collide and destroy the foundation we’d built, I firmly believed in the magic of the moments that were blissful and passionately fought to preserve them. This song and video are an ode to the best of those times and, ironically, depict my current truth.”
