[Drake - Verse 1] Money just changed everything I wonder how life without it would go From the concrete who knew that a flower would grow Lookin' down from the top and it's crowded below My fifteen minutes started an hour ago Truth over fame, you know I respect the blatant sh-t When I hear talkin, I just don't know what to make of it Hate is so familiar to me, I'm slowly embracing it Doesn't come natural, bear with me it could take a bit Yeah, and my dreams who I'm racing with You can see I'm pacin it so that I'm always chasin it Wayne put me right here, that's who I get the paper with I hope that my success never alters our relationship Yeah, this life is something I would die for Octobers Own, but it's lookin like July 4th But I just wish they'd let you try it first This time I'm really goin off, fireworks
[Alicia Keys - Chorus] When I go off like July 4th Feels like a fire, got to go higher It's your revelation my sweet celebration Light me like a rocket, cause nothing can stop it All I see is fireworks, All I see is fireworks Every night it's fireworks Every night it's fireworks All I see is fireworks Taking off like fireworks Taking off like fireworks
[Verse 2] I got this one girl, you know, in my life So I say in this song, I say I'm just such a gentleman You should give it up for me Look at how I'm placing al my napkins and my cutlery I can tell it wasn't love I just thought you f-ck with me Who coulda predicted love could strike now you stuck with me Yeh, I kept my wits about me luckilly What happened between us that night it always seems to trouble me Now all of a sudden these gossip brags wanna cover me And you making it seem that it happened that way because of me But I was curious and I'll never forget it baby What an experience You coulda been the one but it wasn't that serious There was smoke in the air before now it's me cleaning it That felt good, all and all I learned a lesson from it though You never see it coming you just get to see it go Yeah I shoulda looked up in the sky at first Now I see it in her eyes Fireworks!
[Verse 3] Everything the same but it feels different My dad called me up knowing that I still listen And he's still got his foot out, guilt trippin' It's been years, though, I just learn to deal with it For real, me and my Realtor we built up a better rapport Got my mother in a place with some better decor She searched the entire city I let her explore And now she's sayin' she's more lonely than ever before How many of our parents' marriages lasted? I was only 5, I bet I barely reacted I'm flying back home for the heritage classic Searching for that feeling, tell me where is the magic? Let's stay together 'til we're ghosts I want to witness love, I've never seen it close Yeah, but I guess I gotta find it first, that's why I'm really going off Fireworks!
