Sweet Life

Album: Channel Orange (2012)
  • The best song wasn't the single, but you weren't either
    Livin' in Ladera Heights, the black Beverly Hills
    Domesticated paradise, palm trees and pools
    The water's blue, swallow the pill
    Keepin' it surreal, whatever you like
    Whatever feels good, whatever takes you mountain high
    Keepin' it surreal, not sugar-free
    My TV ain't HD, that's too real
    Grapevine, mango, peaches, and limes, the sweet life

    The sweet life, sweet life
    Sweet life, sweet life
    The sweet, sweet, sweet, sweet life
    Sweet life, the sweet life
    Sweetie pie

    You've had a landscaper and a house keeper since you were born
    The sunshine always kept you warm
    So why see the world, when you got the beach
    Don't know why see the world, when you got the beach
    The sweet life

    The best song wasn't the single, but you couldn't turn your radio down
    Satellite need a receiver, can't seem to turn the signal fully off
    Transmitting the waves
    You're catching that breeze 'til you're dead in the grave

    But you're keepin' it surreal, whatever you like
    Whatever feels good, whatever takes you mountain high
    Keepin' it surreal, not sugar-free, my tv ain't HD, that's too real
    Grapevines, mango, peaches, and lime, a sweet life

    A sweet life
    A sweet life, yeah
    A sweet life, a sweet life
    A sweet life
    Live and die in the life

    You've had a landscaper and a house keeper since you were born, yeah
    The sunshine always kept you warm
    So why see the world, when you got the beach
    Don't know why see the world, when you got the beach

    And the water, is exactly what I wanted
    It's everything I thought it would be (Thought it would be)
    But this neighborhood is gettin' trippier every day
    The neighborhood is goin' ape shit crazy

    You've had a landscaper and a house keeper since you were born
    The star shine always kept you warm
    So why see the world, when you got the beach
    Don't know why see the world, when you got the beach
