Livin' the Dream

Album: Dangerous (2020)
  • Mama don't pray for my success anymore, yeah
    But mama still prays for me
    Seein' the world ain't really seein' the world
    Through a window from A to B
    Between alcohol and women and Adderall and adrenaline
    I don't ever get no rest
    Sign my life away to be the life of the party
    Yeah, to everybody else

    I look like a rockstar, in and out of cop cars
    Livin' out a suitcase, trashin' hotel bars
    If I see the sunrise, it's 'cause I stayed up all night
    Drinkin' 'cause I need to, damn it, what a good life
    Judgin' by my long hair, you might think I don't care
    Sittin' here, sippin' and bitchin' about a spot where
    People would kill to be, kill to be, kill to be
    But y'all, it ain't as good as it seems, this livin' a dream is
    Killin' me, killin' me, killin' me
    It's killin' me, killin' me, killin' me

    Another day, another venue
    There's trouble to get into
    And love ain't on the menu again
    Lonely as an eagle
    I meet a thousand people
    Who think I got a thousand friends

    Ooh
    There's a stranger in the mirror
    Ooh
    But accordin' to the pictures

    I'm a rockstar, in and out of cop cars
    Livin' out a suitcase, trashin' hotel bars
    If I see the sunrise, it's 'cause I stayed up all night
    Drinkin' 'cause I need to, damn it, what a good life
    Judgin' by my long hair, you might think I don't care
    Sittin' here, sippin' and bitchin' about a spot where
    People would kill to be, kill to be, kill to be
    But y'all, it ain't as good as it seems, this livin' a dream is
    Killin' me, killin' me, killin' me
    It's killin' me, killin' me, killin' me
    Killin' me, killin' me, killin' me

    Ooh
    There's a stranger in the mirror
    Ooh
    But accordin' to the pictures

    I'm a rockstar, in and out of cop cars
    Livin' out a suitcase, trashin' hotel bars
    If I see the sunrise, it's 'cause I stayed up all night
    Drinkin' 'cause I need to, damn it, what a good life
    Judgin' by my long hair, you might think I don't care
    Sittin' here, sippin' and bitchin' about a spot where
    People would kill to be, kill to be, kill to be
    But y'all, it ain't as good as it seems, this livin' a dream is
    Killin' me, killin' me, killin' me
    It's killin' me, killin' me, killin' me
    Killin' me, killin' me, killin' me Writer/s: Michael Hardy, Morgan Wallen, Benjamin David Burgess, Jacob Robert Durrett
