Critical ReceptionEdit

Roberts Copsey of Digital Spy gave the song three out of five stars, saying: "As such, their latest single 'Beautiful Life', which encourages people to live life to the fullest - including one insecure girl who lives a 'broken dream' and spades on the make-up 'to cover up an empty space' - feels a touch on the dated side. The jaunty guitar riff, singalong lyrics and arms-aloft chorus are all present and correct, but what is sorely lacking is a dose of youthful charm."

LyricsEdit

 [George]
She sees the world through TV screens
All of her friends in magazines
But everyday she lives a broken dream, yeah
Making her own reality
There’s lots of make-up on her face
To cover up an empty space
But there’s a lot behind those big blue eyes
She just don’t realize

[Josh]
Everybody’s gone and lost their mind
It’s just the days we live in
Most of the time

[All]
Get up off the dark
Open up your eyes
You’ll discover there’s a world outside (world outside...)
To fix a broken heart
You have to try
Pick it up, pick it up
It’s a beautiful life
Beautiful life, beautiful life
It’s a beautiful life, beautiful life.

[Josh]
He got his fortune on the plate
But all that money won’t change fate
He’s got 6 zeroes but no one to share it with
No friends, no girl, no one in the world

[Jaymi]
Everybody’s gone and lost their mind
It’s just the days we live in
Most of the time, yeah

[All]
Get up off the dark (get up off the dark)
Open up your eyes
You’ll discover there’s a world outside
To fix a broken heart (to fix a broken heart)
You have to try
Pick it up, pick it up
It’s a beautiful life
Beautiful life, beautiful life.
It’s a beautiful life, beautiful life.

[Jaymi]
We are not so different, you and I
Coz everybody’s got a place to hide
But it’s just the things we live in, hmm
Most of the time

[All]
Get up off the dark (get up off the dark) open up your eyes
You’ll discover there’s a world outside (there’s a world outside)
To fix a broken heart (to fix a broken heart)
You have to try
Pick it up, pick it up
It’s a beautiful life
Beautiful life, beautiful life
