All this jewelry ain't no use when it's this dark
It's my favorite part, we see the lights, they got so far
It went too fast, we couldn't reach it with our arms
Wrist on a wrist, a link of charm (oh yeah)
Laying, we're still a link apart
It's like we could die here all young
Like we could dye hair all blonde
If we could see in twenty twin
Twice we could see it 'til the end

Starin' at my diamonds while I'm hoppin' out a spaceship

You my baby, the paparazzi flashin' crazy
She swallowed the bottle
While I sit back and smoke gelato
Walk in my mansion, twenty thousand painting, Picasso
Bitches be dippin', dabbin' with niggas like a nacho
Took off her panties, diamonds dancin' like Rick Riccardo
She havin' it
Went to college workin' on her bachelor
I know you got a past, I got a past, that's in the back of us
Average, I'mma make a million on the average
I'm ridin' with no brain, bitch, I'm out of it

Do you try on all your nights like this? (I might)
Put some spotlight on the slide
