    (Ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh-ooh)

    I wanna live life fast, I don't know how to slow down
    Wanna get high, I don't know how to come down
    Help me now, I'm runnin' on empty
    And I don't wanna be a memory

    Am I the only one that's comin' unglued?
    Emotions buildin' up, they start to run you
    Bottles on the shelf I'm 'bout to run through
    Doin' everything I wish that I can undo, ayy
    I'm by myself
    And why won't no one help?
    I know this can't be healthy
    So I'm lookin' for a way out

    I wanna live life fast, I don't know how to slow down
    Wanna get high, I don't know how to come down
    Help me now, I'm runnin' on empty
    And I don't wanna be a memory
    Live life fast, I don't know how to slow down
    Wanna get high, I don't know how to come down
    Help me now, I'm runnin' on empty
    And I don't wanna be a memory
    (Ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh-ooh)
    And I don't wanna be a memory
    (Ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh-ooh)

    (Talk to me, blackbear)
    Tryna find the beauty in the let down, goin' through my texts now
    Tryna find the things I never said to prove a point
    I'ma roll my feelings in a joint
    Pieces of the story that got left out, I checked out
    Wish it was, I wish it was, I wish it was a phase
    Nothing you can do and there's nothing you can say
    Runnin' from the, runnin' from the, runnin' from the pain
    I gotta get away
    (I gotta get away, gotta get away, gotta get away)

    I wanna live life fast, I don't know how to slow down
    Wanna get high, I don't know how to come down
    Help me now, I'm runnin' on empty
    And I don't wanna be a memory
    Live life fast, I don't know how to slow down
    Wanna get high, I don't know how to come down
    Help me now, I'm runnin' on empty
    And I don't wanna be a memory

    Am I the only one that's comin' unglued?
    (And I don't wanna be a memory)
    There's bottles on the shelf I'm 'bout to run through
    (And I don't wanna be a memory)
    I'm by myself and why won't no one help?
    (And I don't wanna be a memory)
    I know this can't be healthy so I'm lookin' for a way out
    (And I don't wanna be a memory)
