  • They say I was always destined for fortune and fame
    Now that I've gotten what I wanted everything's changed
    And now I'm living the
    High life, high life
    I never looked back once I left my hometown
    High life, high life
    I left behind everybody I know

    And now I'm singing like
    La la la la la la la la la la la la la la
    La la la la la la la la la
    And everybody sings along like

    La la la la la la la la la la la la la la
    La la la la la la la la la
    Be careful when you're wishing for the high life

    They say you have to come clean with your past to move on
    All of my dreams have come true but something still feels wrong
    But I'm still living the
    High life, high life
    I never looked back once I left my hometown
    High life, high life
    Said goodbye to everybody I know

    And now I'm singing like
    La la la la la la la la la la la la la la
    La la la la la la la la la
    And everybody sings along like

    La la la la la la la la la la la la la la
    La la la la la la la la la
    Be careful when you're wishing for the high life

    Everybody's dreaming of the high life
    It may look good from the outside
    But all I really wanted was a good life
    With a memory reel of all the highlights
    All I want is to sleep good at night
    Look myself in the mirror knowing that I live right
    So when I'm six feet in the ground
    I'll be singing like

    A million dollars in palm
    Not a worry in the world, that's everything I want
    I'm wishing I was there I feel like it's where I belong
    I wanna be able to go pay all the bills for my mom
    And make her smile
    Pick up my family and take em out
    On me
    And my over capacitated bank account
    Money is all I think about
    Of my life it's a highlight
    Tired of being low I'm ready for the high life
    Look at me now
    Look at how I get down
    Stubs and Wooten on my feet
    I'm the flyest youngin in town
    But I'm loosin it
    My vision has just become an illusion
    And Now my highlife is low again
    Struggling to hold it in I was on a mission
    And messed everything up making all the wrong decisions
    I know it's not the end Well then again it might be
    And it's sucks god forbid you ever end up like me

    And now I'm singing like
    La la la la la la la la la la la la la la
    La la la la la la la la la
    And everybody sings along like

    La la la la la la la la la la la la la la
    La la la la la la la la la
    Be careful when you're wishing for the high life
    Be careful when you're wishing for the high life
    Be careful when you're wishing for the high life
    Be careful when you're wishing for the high life Writer/s: NELLY FURTADO, NIKO WARREN, RODNEY JERKINS
