Money just changed everything, I wonder how life without it would go
From the concrete who knew that a flower would grow
Lookin' down from the top and its crowded below
My fifteen minutes started an hour ago Truth over fame, you know I respect the blatant sh!t
When I hear talkin', I just don't know what to make of it
Hate is so familiar to me, I'm slowly embracing it
Doesn't come natural, bear with me it could take a bit
Yeah, and my dreams who I'm racing with
You can see I'm pacin' it so that I'm always chasin' it Wayne put me right here, that's who I get the paper with
I hope that my success never alters our relationship Yeah, this life is something I would die for Octobers Own, but its lookin' like July 4th
I just wish they'd let you try it first This time I'm really goin' off, fireworks  Today it begins I missed them before, but won't miss them again I keep having the same dream And I think I just realized what it means.

All I see is fireworks, all I see is fireworks Every night its fireworks every night its fireworks All I see is fireworks all I see is fireworks Taking off like fireworks takin' off like oh-ah-oh-oh

I'm just such a gentleman you should give it up for me
Look at how I'm placing all my napkins and my cutlery I can tell it wasn't love I just thought you fuck with me
Who coulda predicted love could strike now you stuck with me
Damn I kept my wits about me luckily What happened between us that night it always seems to trouble me
Now all of a sudden these gossip brags wanna cover me
And you making it seem that it happened that way because of me
But I was curious and I'll never forget it baby
What an experience you coulda been the one but it wasn't that serious Their was smoke in the air before now its me clearing it
That felt good, all and all I learned a lesson from it though You never see it coming you just get to see it go
Yeah I shoulda looked up in the sky at first Now I can see it in her eyes, fireworks!
 Today it begins I missed them before, but won't miss them again I keep having the same dream And I think I just realized what it means.

All I see is fireworks, all I see is fireworks Every night its fireworks every night its fireworks All I see is fireworks all I see is fireworks Taking off like fireworks takin' off like oh-ah-oh-oh
 Everything the same but it feels different
My dad called me up knowing that I still listen
And he's still got his foot out, guilt trippin'
It's been years, though, I just learn to deal with it
For real, me and my realtor we built up a better rapport
Got my mother in a place with some better decor
She searched the entire city I let her explore Ant now she's sayin' she's more lonely than every before
How many of our parents' marriages lasted?
I was only five, I bet I barely reacted
I'm flying back home for the heritage classic
Searchin' for that feeling, tell me where is the magic?
Let's stay together 'til we're ghosts I want to witness love, I've never seen it close Yeah, but I guess I gotta find it first That's why I'm really going off, Fireworks  Today it begins I missed them before, but won't miss them again I keep having the same dream And I think I just realized what it means.

All I see is fireworks, all I see is fireworks Every night its fireworks every night its fireworks All I see is fireworks all I see is fireworks Taking off like fireworks takin' off like oh-ah-oh-oh
