"Beautiful World" as written by Max Martin, Tobias Erik Karlsson and Chad Wolfinbarger....
Here it comes in the morning
I'm just trying to forget
Keep it real, keep it simple
And somehow just get out of bed
And this city is endless
I'm as cold as it's stone
Yeah this city is endless
And I'm, I'm walking alone

[Chorus]

Sunlight creeps in between the curtains
Lose the sheets there's no time for sleep
I lie, I pretend 'til I'm almost certain
It's a beautiful world

I wanna ask for direction
But I don't dare to disturb
I got a thing with affections
Yeah, that's why I'm walking alone

[Chorus]

Sunlight creeps in between the curtains
Lose the sheets there's no time for sleep
I lie, I pretend 'til I'm almost certain
It's a beautiful world

Here it comes in the morning?

[Chorus]

Sunlight creeps in between the curtains
Lose the sheets there's no time for sleep
I lie, I pretend 'til I'm almost certain
It's a beautiful world
(Yeah, it's a beautiful world)
la la la la
I pretend 'til I'm almost certain
It's a beautiful world

    Song MeaningAs much as I could understand the comments above, and they are great interpretations if that's how you'll take it, this might be the only song the lead singer of CL introduced (and i paraphrase, from memory) during one of their shows as "one of those days when you just don't want to get up, you just want to stay in bed, but the world demands you and you know you have to, and you realize how beautiful this world is and that you almost missed it. this song is for the days when you just do not want to face the world right now."

    The chorus:
    Sunlight creeps in between the curtains - waking up
    Lose the sheets there's no time for sleep - get up, get out of bed (another line too)
    I lie, I pretend 'til I'm almost certain - not wanting to accept/admit that...
    It's a beautiful world - ta-dah

    General Commentits about a guy who has lost everything in his life, his family,friends, and/or lover, and he now walks alone because they left him adn the only thing keeping him going is him lieing to himself telling himself its a beautiful world

    General CommentThis is about a guy who's lost everything, and has nowhere to turn for help. He doesn't know who to trust or where to find help, but he knows that he just has to keep living. He needs to get out of bed each morning and face the day, there's no hiding, no backing out, no giving up. He's just gotta keep himself going and keep searching, and he does this by convincing himself that it's a beautiful world.

    General CommentIn a more general sense, this song is just about feeling alone. In the city especially, it's easy to feel lost among a sea of people. The lyric "I wanna ask for direction/But I don't dare to disturb" seems to point to that; it's difficult for that narrator to trust and forge relationships because he doesn't want to impose. But he's self aware, he knows that "it's a beautiful world", and he wants to try. That's how I see it, anyway. Oh, and arkyhogs totally reworded kalan60's comment.

    General CommentIn general, It is a beautiful world because in a long run he always lies but he finally realized that the lie that he always pretending is now more certain so he rejoices even if he walks alone, without having friends, loves ones, or anything that makes his life even more meaningful he always knew that it's a beautiful world because even though all of those people goes out to his system, he always keeps on moving because he has a faith that God is always in his side whatever journey his life may take. Wow what a Beautiful World! :)

    General CommentCarolina Liar got the idea of this song from one of their friends suffering from manic-depression. The friend would hate having to wake up in the morning and see the sun. When someone is in that situation they have to tell themself that this world truly is beautiful, even if they don't see it at the time. Great song.
