What can you tell us about life?

Written , Creative writing

You've become what you despise, a stereotype. It's a blacked-out blur, but I'm pretty sure it ruled. Damn. At the eh-end of it all. So I pray for a favour like Esther. Are you ready for, ready for. It's always been inside of you, you, you. End of the rainbow looking treasure. I need your strength to handle the pressure. But lil' mama so dope. That girl’s a trip, a one way ticket. Of anything and everything. Sippin' gin and juice laying underneath the palm trees.

Think we kissed but I forgot. Oh oh oh oh oh oh, Oh oh oh oh oh oh. You don't have to feel like a wasted space. You brought me to life, now every February you'll be my Valentine, Valentine. Pop your Pérignon. Uh, She’s a beast. I call her Karma (come back). You could've been the greatest.

I want my heart throbbin', ground shakin', show stoppin', amazin'. Summer after high school when we first met. Just own the night like the 4th of July! Already brushing off the dust. Word on the street, you got somethin' to show me, me. Don't need apologies. After a hurricane comes a rainbow.

All my girls vintage Chanel baby. Yeah, we maxed our credit cards and got kicked out of the bar. Trying to connect the dots, don't know what to tell my boss. In another life I would make you stay. Straight stuntin' yeah we do it like that. Wanna be a victim ready for abduction. Like a bird without a cage.

That girl’s a trip, a one way ticket. From LA, Miami, to New York City. You brought me to life, now every February you'll be my Valentine, Valentine. Big hoops, and maroon lips, my clique hoppin' in my Maserati. Peach-pink lips, yeah, everybody stares. Ripped my favorite party dress, warrant's out for my arrest.

It's a blacked out blur, but I'm pretty sure it ruled. Damn. I'll be your gift, give you something good to celebrate. It's time to face the music I'm no longer your muse. Last Friday night, yeah I think we broke the law, always say we're gonna stop. That girl’s a trip, A one way ticket. Boom, boom, boom. You brought me to life, now every February you'll be my Valentine, Valentine. I knew you were. That fairy tale ending with a knight in shining armor. Got a motel and built a fort out of sheets.

Come on, let your colours burst. Wanna see the show in 3D, a movie. Open up your heart. Do you know that there's still a chance for you 'Cause there's a spark in you? Can't replace you with a million rings. I'm a peace out if you don't give me the pay off. You fall asleep during foreplay, 'Cause the pills you take, are more your forte. The clock is ticking, running out of time. So we should party all night. Boy, you should know what you're falling for. She ride me like a roller coaster.

Let's go all the way tonight, no regrets, just love. Wanna be a victim ready for abduction. We drove to Cali and got drunk on the beach. We'd make out in your Mustang to Radiohead. Give you something good to celebrate. Baby do you dare to do this? In another life I would be your girl.

Mark my words. You could travel the world but nothing comes close to the golden coast. I should've told you what you meant to me 'Cause now I pay the price. Be your teenage dream tonight. I'll take your bad days with your good. We'd keep all our promises be us against the world. Do you ever feel already buried deep six feet under? So open up your heart and just let it begin. You're reading me like erotica, boy, you make me feel exotic, yeah.

We are now approaching the runway, so get ready for take off. I got you spinning like a disco ball. If you wanna dance, if you want it all, you know that I'm the girl that you should call. We'd keep all our promises be us against the world. You're so supersonic, wanna feel your powers, stun me with your lasers. Tonight, tonight, tonight, I'm walking on air. I can feel this light that's inside of me. Baby, you're a firework. You hear my voice, you hear that sound.
