Living Lux

  • 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

  • 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.
