Yesterday when we were getting high

You were invited, you woulda liked it

Uh, uh, nah, I know you all too well

 

We said that we can kiss the past goodbye

But your weren’t excited, there’s no way to fight it

You can stay but shawty, here I go

 

Should I spend the weekend in Vegas?

I’m living inside the moment, not taking pictures to save it

I mean how could I forget, my memories never faded

I can’t relate to these haters, my enemies never made it

 

I am still here with who I started with

The game needed life, I put my heart in it

I blew myself up, I’m on some martyr shit

Carried the weight for my city like a cargo ship

 

I’m 23 with a money tree

Growing more too, I just planted a 100 seeds

It’s ironic ’cause my mother was a florist

And that’s how she met my pops and now my garden is enormous

 

It’s happening Penny Lane, just like you said

I avoided the Coke game and went with Sprite instead

That’s word to the millions that they putting up

I’m trying to do better than good enough

 

What am I afraid of?

This is supposed to be what dreams are made of

The people I don’t have time to hang with

Always look at me and say the same shit, they say

 

You promised me you would never change

Oh, huh, huh, oh, huh, huh, oh, huh, huh

You promised me you would never change

Oh, huh, huh, oh, huh, huh

 

Am I wrong for making light of my situation?

Clap on, when 40 got something for me to snap on

Now that I’m on, I don’t wanna worry about getting back on

I’m just trying to stay on, get my fucking buffett on

 

I heard they just moved my grandmother to a nursing home

And I’ll be acting like I don’t know how to work a phone

But hit redial you’ll see that I just called some chick I met at the mall

That I barely know at all and

 

Plus this woman that I mess with unprotected

Text us, saying she wish she woulda kept it

The one that I’m laying next to just looked over and read it

Man, I couldn’t tell you where the fuck my head is

I’m holding on by a thread

 

It’s like I’m high right now, the guy right now

And you can tell by looking in my eyes right now

That nothing really comes as a surprise right now

‘Cause we having the time of our lives right now

 

What am I afraid of?

This is supposed to be what dreams are made of

The people I don’t have time to hang with

Always look at me and say the same shit, they say

 

You promised me you would never change

Oh, huh, huh, oh, huh, huh, oh, huh, huh

You promised me you would never change

Oh, huh, huh, oh, huh, huh

 

I live by some advice this girl, Lisa told me

The other day Lisa told me that she missed the old me

Which made me question when I went missing

And when I start treating my friends different

 

Maybe it was the fast pace switch up

Or the 2 guns in my face during the stick up

Maybe ’cause the girl I thought I trusted

Was who set the whole shit up

But a fact I haven’t seen ’em since they locked big rich up

 

I know, the same time, I’m quick to forget

‘Bout to roll me a blunt with my list of regrets

Burn it all, burn it all, I’m starting it fresh

‘Cause half the time I got it right I probably guessed

 

Did I just trade free time for camera time?

Will I blow all of this money? Baby, hammer time

Yeah, I just need some closure, ain’t no turning back for me

I’m in it till it’s over
