Shyness invaded On the Champs-Élysées The world was ours then I had conviction But you, you had style Such a lethal combination The years changed us The money weighed us down We lost our way Let me spoil you Pick a place to go I want to spend my money on you
And don't you remember How this began? You begged me for a chance Don't waste your sorry No, don't waste your goodbyes Tonight From hand to mouth and now We're living lux
I ordered a lobster And you, them away The waitress thinks that we can't pay, no What does she know? Our pockets are full-grown And we've earned the right to fine dine So raise your glass My old friend For we both know That this is the end For the times we fought And the times we shared I'll sing you a song The way I used to then
Don't you remember? How this began? You begged me for a chance Don't waste your sorry No, don't waste your goodbyes Tonight From hand to mouth and now We're living lux We're 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.
