Beyonce Quotes: The Best Lyrics and Lines From Lemonade

After secretly releasing her self-titled album last year, we compiled a similar list of the best Beyonce quotes from that album. Now, The bey-hive is being bestowed with another gem by the queen herself.

Beyonce’s Lemonade The Visual Album, is being described as

A conceptual project based on every woman’s journey of self knowledge and healing.

It premiered on HBO at 9pm April 23rd and is executive produced by Beyoncé Knowles Carter along with key collaborations from Diplo, Ezra Koenig, Jack White, James Blake, Kendrick Lamar and The Weeknd.

You can stream the album exclusively on TIDAL at:

Narrowing this down to a few quotes – on an album that is getting better by the second – was a huge challenge.

Below, you’ll find our favorite lyrics and lines – from an album filled with anthems – in the order on the album.

Beyonce Quotes: The Best Lyrics and Lines From Lemonade

 

1. PRAY YOU CATCH ME

Beyoncé

Produced By Beyoncé & Kevin Garrett

 

You can taste the dishonesty it’s on your breath

as you pass it off so cavalier.

beyonce-quotes-lemonade-pray-you-catch-me

Constantly aware of it all, my lone ear pressed against the walls of your world

 

Prayin’ I catch you whispering, I’m prayin’ you catch me listening

 

Nothing else ever seems to hurt like the smile on your face

When it’s only in my memory

 

2. HOLD UP

Beyoncé

Produced By Ezra Koenig, Beyoncé & Diplo

 

Something don’t feel right

because it ain’t right

especially coming up after midnight

beyonce-quotes-lemonade-hold-up

What’s worse, looking jealous or crazy?

Jealous or crazy?

More like walked all over lately, walked all over lately, I’d rather be crazy.

 

I smell your secret, and I’m not too perfect, to ever feel this worthless

 

Can’t you see there’s no other man above you, what a wicked way to treat the girl that loves you.

 

How did it come down to this, going through your call list?

I don’t wanna lose my pride but I’ma f*** me up a b****.

 

Know that I kept it sexy and know I kept it fun

There’s something that I’m missing maybe my head for one

 

It’s such a shame, you let this good love go to waste.

Looking at my watch, he shoulda been home.

Today I regret the night I put that ring on.

He always got them fucking excuses.

I pray to the Lord you reveal what his truth is.

 

He only want me when I’m not on there.

He better call Becky with the good hair.

6. DADDY LESSONS

Beyoncé

Produced By Beyoncé

 

Came into this world, Daddy’s little girl and daddy made a soldier out of me.

 

With his gun, with his head held high

He told me not to cry

Oh, my daddy said shoot

beyonce-quotes-lemonade-daddy-lesssons

Daddy made me fight

It wasn’t always right

But he said girl it’s your second amendment, oh, oh, oh

 

He always played it cool

But daddy was no fool

And right before he died he said remember

 

My daddy warned me about men like you

He said, “Baby girl, he’s playing you.”

7. LOVE DROUGHT

Beyoncé

Produced By Beyoncé & Mike Dean

 

Ten times out of nine, I know you’re lying

But nine times outta ten, I know you’re trying

So I’m trying to be fair

beyonce-quotes-lemonade-love-drought

It’s just floating in the air, lookie there

Are you aware you’re my lifeline, are you tryna kill me?

 

I don’t care about the lights or the beams

Spend my life in the dark for the sake of you and me

Only way to go is up, skin thick, too tough

 

Nine times out of ten, I’m in my feelings

But ten times out of nine, I’m only human

Tell me, what did I do wrong?

 

I always paid attention, been devoted

Tell me, what did I do wrong?

Oh, already asked that, my bad

But you my lifeline, think you tryna kill me?

If I wasn’t Bey, would you still feel me?

8. SANDCASTLES

Beyoncé

Produced By Vincent Berry II & Beyoncé

 

We built sand castles that washed away

I made you cry when I walked away

 

And although I promised that I couldn’t stay, baby

Every promise don’t work out that way, oh, babe

 

Dishes smashed on my counter from our last encounter

Pictures snatched out the frame

Bitch, I scratched out your name and your face

What is it about you that I can’t erase, baby?

Lord forgive me, I’ve been running

Running blind in truth

 

I’m telling these tears, “Go and fall away, fall away”

May the last one burn into flames

I break chains all by myself

Won’t let my freedom rot in hell

11. ALL NIGHT

Beyoncé

Produced By Beyoncé & Diplo

 

Found the truth beneath your lies

And true love never has to hide

 

True love never has to hide

I’ll trade your broken wings for mine

beyonce-quotes-lemonade--all-night

I’ve seen your scars and kissed your crime

 

Our love was stronger than your pride

Beyond your darkness, I’m your light

 

They say true love’s the greatest weapon

To win the war caused by pain, pain

But every diamond has imperfections

But my love’s too pure to watch it chip away

 

Oh nothing real can be threatened

True love breathes salvation back into me

🍋❤️

12. FORMATION

Beyoncé

Bitch, I’m back by popular demand

 

I like my negro nose with Jackson Five nostrils

Earned all this money but they never take the country out me

I got a hot sauce in my bag, swag

beyonce-quotes-lemonade-formation

If he hit it right, I might take him on a flight on my chopper, cause I slay

Drop him off at the mall, let him buy some J’s, let him shop up, cause I slay

I twirl on them haters, albino alligators

El Camino with the seat low, sippin’ Cuervo with no chaser
