Oh, all I see is fireworks 
Oh, every night it's fireworks 
Oh, all I see is fireworks 
Takin' off like oh-ah-oh-oh 

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 

When I go off like July 4th 
Feels like a fire, got to go higher 
Permission, sweet celebration 
Light me like a rocket, cause nothing can stop it 
All I see is fireworks, 
All I see is fireworks 
Every night its fireworks 
Every night its 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 f*** 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 see it in her eyes 
Fireworks! 

When I go off like July 4th 
Feels like a fire, got to go higher 
A true reformation, sweet celebration 
Light me like a rocket, cause nothing can stop it 
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 5, I bet I barely reacted 
I'm flying back home for the heritage cla**ic 
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 

When I go off like July 4th 
Feels like a fire, got to go higher 
Permission, sweet celebration 
Light me like a rocket, cause nothing can stop it 
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
