    [Intro: Juice WRLD]
    I think that's what life is about
    Truly findin' yourself
    And then closin' your eyes and dyin' in your sleep

    [Verse 1: Kid Cudi & Drake]
    Lifted are my days, my dreams are vivid colors (Woo)
    The jet is low, they make me take your trips, we fly by (Let's go)
    No stress is on my brain, no worries here, I'm chosen (Yeah, yeah)
    Made another way, my n*gga, watch me go shine
    When I close my eyes my world comes alive (Yeah)
    La-la-la-la-la-la
    People grow, good times sometimes (Nigga)
    Real n*ggas in life survive (Yeah)
    And I'm sailing to the edge of my mind
    N*gga, double up life (Yeah, yeah)
    Set the tempo, got a nympho on my line (Yeah-yeah)
    Said she wanna unwind (She do)
    And I'm focused on gettin' more
    They too stuck on gettin' even, I'm ready for it
    We should really be together more
    'Cause I know we got some time but I'm never sure

    [Chorus: Kid Cudi]
    Catch me ten-toes in the limelight (Yeah)
    F*ck the world up, on my life, right (N*gga)
    Sayin' I'm the one, she lie, lie
    She checkin' for me, now baby come in my dreams, my dreams (Yeah)
    Woah, woah, woah, woah, woah, woah
    Hey-ayy, hey-ayy, hey-yeah
    Woah-woah, woah-woah, woah, woah, woah, woah

    [Post-Chorus: Drake & Kid Cudi]
    Finding myself as the days
    Fly by like us on the move
    You told me I was a phase
    Okay, fine, I miss you too
    Probably wouldn't believe me if I told you
    Pieces of myself that I should never lose
    All these people that love you don't know you
    How am I supposed to move?
    Hey-ayy, hey-ayy, hey-yeah
    How am I supposed to move?

    [Verse 2: Drake]
    All my n*ggas rally 'round me
    Bold n*ggas gettin' real italics 'round me
    Finally circled, found the purple
    Undisclosed amounts straight from Universal
    Too commercial, 'leven years later I done found my purpose
    Here I am, oh, they mad
    Goin' out swingin' for 'em, goin' out sad

    [Chorus: Kid Cudi]
    Catch me ten-toes in the limelight (Yeah)
    F*ck the world up, on my life, right (N*gga)
    Sayin' I'm the one, she lie, lie
    She checkin' for me, now baby come in my dreams, my dreams (Yeah)
    Woah, woah, woah, woah, woah, woah
    Hey-ayy, hey-ayy, hey-yeah
    Woah-woah, woah-woah, woah, woah, woah, woah

    [Post-Chorus: Drake]
    Finding myself as the days
    Fly by like us on the move
    You told me I was a phase
    Okay, fine, I miss you too
    Probably wouldn't believe me if I told you
    Pieces of myself that I should never lose
    All these people that love you don't know you
    How am I supposed to move?

    [Outro: Drake]
    Gettin' more
    We should really be together more
    But I'm never sure
