Beautiful Boy: the lyrics and their meaning

In the video descriptions on Youtube, both songs Beautiful Boy and Even in the Dark refer to Coop’s Advice, the foundation created by Cooper Noriega’s family after his death, aimed to share Cooper’s vision and leave a sign on his fans’ lives. These two songs are the memory Jxdn wanted to share with the world about Cooper’s death. Cooper was very active in supporting young people struggling with addiction and mental health issues, and few hours before his death he shared a TikTok video (now removed) about dying young.

Whereas Even in the Dark offers a darker perspective, in which Jxdn talks about following his shadow, Beautiful Boy has a brighter mood, where Jxdn focuses on how much he misses Cooper.

My only escape and my best friend
Even though you’re not here you hold my hand
You’re always saving me, so save a place for me, yeah, yeah
You got me staring at the wall, waiting but you never call
I just wanna talk to you, I guess I gotta talk to God
I just saw you yesterday, I had so much left to say

In both songs there are hints that talk about a part of Jxdn that tends to follow Cooper: in the lyrics of Even in the Dark the singer says that “I still follow your shadow, even in the dark / This world was too painful, hope it’s better where you are”, whereas in Beautiful Boy he says:

Oh, why’d you go so soon (Soon)
Oh, why’d you go so soon when you said and you promise you wouldn’t
I would have followed but you know that I couldn’t
Oh, why’d you go so soon (Soon)

Coming therefore at the bottom of the lyrics and their meaning, Beautiful Boy is a heartfelt song where Jxdn unveils the strong bond he had with Cooper Noriega, the Beautiful Boy referred in the song title. He misses Cooper a lot, and a part of him is still strongly connected with him even if he’s not among us any longer.

Below you can find Jxdn words under the videos of the new songs:

With the release of this project it’s important everyone knows the positive impact Cooper’s story brings. Cooper had dreams to help the world and make the world a better place. The Noriega family has set up a foundation where all proceeds from this project will be going to. The Coop’s Advice Foundation will be launching this week so please follow @coopsadvice for all upcoming developments. I hope you all can find peace in these songs and join me and his family in celebrating the life of a beautiful boy. Thank you.

Oh, why’d you go so soon (Soon)
Oh, why’d you go so soon (Soon)

“Beautiful Boy” it’s sad to say
You were hiding your pain behind your face
Underneath your smile, just a broken child
“Beautiful Boy” inside your head
Couldn’t handle how loud the voices get
I hope it’s quiet now, I hope it’s quiet now
And if you hear me just give me a sign
‘Cause I don’t know why

Oh, why’d you go so soon (Soon)
Oh, why’d you go so soon (Soon)
Oh, why’d you go so soon when you said and you promise you wouldn’t
I would have followed but you know that I couldn’t
Oh, why’d you go so soon (Soon)

My only escape and my best friend
Even though you’re not here you hold my hand
You’re always saving me, so save a place for me, yeah, yeah
You got me staring at the wall, waiting but you never call
I just wanna talk to you, I guess I gotta talk to God
I just saw you yesterday, I had so much left to say

Oh, why’d you go so soon (Soon)
Oh, why’d you go so soon (Soon)
Oh, why’d you go so soon when you said and you promise you wouldn’t
I would have followed but you know that I couldn’t
Oh, why’d you go so soon (Soon)
