Yesterday when we were getting high
You werent invited
You would've like it
I-I-I-I know you all too well
I said that we could kiss the past goodbye
But you 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 a moment
Not taking pictures to save it
I mean how could I forget
My memories never faded
I can't relate 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
Uh-Uh
That's word to the millions that they're puttin' up
I tryin' to do better than good enough

What am I afraid of?
This is s'pose to be what dream are made of
But people I don't have the time to hang with
Always look at me and say the same shit
Said You promise me you would never change
Oh U-u-Oh U-u-oh
You promised me you would never change
Oh u-u-oh u-u-oh
Oh

Am I wrong for making light of my situation?
Clap on
40 got some shit for me to snap on
Now that I'm on
I don't really want worry about getting back on
I'm just trying to stay on get my fuckin' buffet on
I heard they just moved my grandmother to a nursing home
And I be acting like don't know how to work a phone
But hit redial you 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
Texts saying she wished she kept it
And the girl 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 holdin on by a thread
It's like I'm high right now
The guy right now
You can't tell by looking in my eyes right now
That nothing's really comes as a surprise right now
It's we just tryin' to have the time of our lives right now
(Oh)

What am I afraid of?
This is s'pose to be what dreams are made of
But people I don't have the time to hang with
Always look at me and say the same shit
Said You promise me you would never change
Oh U-u-Oh U-u-oh
You promised me you would never change
Oh u-u-oh u-u-oh
Oh

I live by some advice this girl 'Lissa told me
The other day 'Lissa told that she missed the old me
Which made me questioned when I went missing
And when I start treatin' my friends different
Maybe it was the fast pace switch up
Two guns in face during the stickup
Maybe cause the girl I thought I trusted
Was the one who set whole shit up
But the fact is I haven't seen them since they locked Big Rich up
I know
But same time I'm quick forget
I'm bout to roll me up a blunt with my list of regrets
Burn it all, Burn it all
I'm startin' 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, Hammertime
Yeah
I just need some closure
Ain't no turning back for me
I'm in it 'til it's over
