George Ezra - Pretty Shining People Lyrics




Me and Sam in the car
Talking 'bout America
Heading to the wishing well
We've reached our last resort and...
I turned to him
Said "Man, help me out
I fear I'm on an island
In an ocean full of change
Can't bring myself to dive in
To an ocean full of change

Am I losing touch?
Am I losing touch now?"
He said...

Why, oh why?
What a terrible time
To be alive if you're prone
To overthinking it
Why, oh why?
What a terrible time
To be alive if you're prone
To second guessing

Hey pretty smiling people
We're alright together
We're alright together
Hey pretty shining people
We're alright together
We're alright together, hey

Took it in turns
To dream about the lottery
And what we might've done
If we had entered and had won
We... we're each convinced that
Nothing would've changed
But if this were the case,
Why is it a conversation anyway?

Are we losing touch?
Are we losing touch now?
He said...

Why, oh why?
What a terrible time
To be alive if you're prone
To overthinking it
Why, oh why?
What a terrible time
To be alive if you're prone
To second guessing

Hey pretty smiling people
We're alright together
We're alright together
Hey pretty shining people
We're alright together
We're alright together, hey

Don't we all need love?
The answer is easy
Don't we all need love?
The answer is easy
Don't we all need love?
The answer is easy

Hey pretty smiling people
We're alright together
We're alright together
Hey pretty shining people
We're alright together
We're alright together

Hey pretty smiling people
We're alright together
We're alright together
Hey pretty shining people
We're alright together
We're alright together, hey

George Ezra Pretty Shining People Comments
  1. Nick To

    Video Idea:
    Teenage girl goes to pick her grandpa up from his retirement home for a day out. The concept of the video is her asking about his life, and him telling her life lessons through the lyrics. Most of the video would be him saying the lyrics as if he’s talking. At one point, the news is on tv in the background, when it focuses on a bottle of Xanax that the girl takes, and it shows the grandpa leaning against a doorframe and says the line “What a terrible time to be alive if your prone to overthinking” and grabs her hand to take her outside and see his flowers. Scenes have them eating waffles, walking through the park, etc. The last scene would have the music lowered, and him standing by his wife’s grave with his granddaughter and saying “Don’t we all need love?”.
    Anyway, just an idea I had while listening to this.
