Drake - Fireworks (feat. Alicia Keys) - Lyrics

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 shit
 When I hear 'em talkin, I just dont 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
 And 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
 October's own, but its lookin' like July four
 I just wish they'd let you try it first
 This time I'm really goin off, fireworks

 Oh, today it begins
 I missed it before, but won't miss them again
 I keep having the sa-me   dream
 And I think that I just realized what it means

 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, all I see is fireworks
 Taking off like fireworks, taking off like oh oh oh oh, oh oh oh

 I'm just such a gentleman, you should give it up for me
 Look at how I'm placing all my napkins and my cutlery
 I can tell it wasn't love I just thought you fuck with me
 Who coulda predicted love could strike but how you stuck with me
 Damn, I kept my wits about me luckily
 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 wasnt that serious
 Their was smoke in the air before that was me clearing 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 can see it in her eyes, fireworks


 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 report
 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 every before
 How many of our parents' marriages lasted?
 I was only five, 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
