Living Lux

  • D from TlvI can't stop thinking that the lyrics are these days Kele talking to his old self - younger Kele.

    You begged me for a chance - Kele is talking about his own self wanting to have success and wealth
    Don't waste your sorry - but now, he kind of not enjoying it, and feel sorry for his younger self wanting to be what he is now

    The lyrics shows it also here:
    The years changed us
    The money weighed us down
    We lost our way

    He probably used to be somewhere middle class:
    From hand to mouth and now

    but now he is living the luxury life


    So raise your glass
    My old friend
    For we both knowsaying goodbye
    That this is the end

    In these lines I think he except his evolution and saying goodbye to his old self.
