Drake Feat. Alicia Keys – Fireworks Lyrics

[Verse 1]
Money just changed everything
I wonder how life without it would go
From the concrete who knew that a flower would grow
Looking 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 talking
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, bare with me it could take a bit
Yeah and my dreams are who I’m racing with
You can see I’m pacing it so that I’m always chasing 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 looking like July 4
I just wish they’d let you try it first
This time I’m really going off, fireworks

Oh, today it begins
I’ve missed them before, but won’t miss them again
I keep having the same dream
And I think that I just realized what it means

[Alicia Keys]
All I see is fireworks
Every night it’s fireworks
Taking off like fireworks
Taking off like

[Verse 2]
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’d fuck with me
Who coulda predicted Lucky Strike would have 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 blogs want to 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
That was me clearing it that felt good
All in 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


[Verse 3]
Everything’s 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 tripping
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 saying 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 never seen it close
Yeah, but I guess I gotta find it first
That’s why I’m really going off, fireworks
