[Verse 1: Lite]
Ciroc and lemonade mixed in my styrofoam
Trying to pinpoint the exact moment where I went wrong
Damn I'm wasted
And my mind is racing
And frankly, my dear, I've gotten so tired of chasing
And my life is so out of place
And I can't make it fit
So my best solution is just to escape from it
So pour another drink
Give me a pillow or two
Cause I don't wanna think
Girl I'd rather feel for you

[Hook: Jhene]
What I feel, what I feel now
What is real? What is real now?
Am I still, am I here now?
If I'm still, will I feel now
What is real now?
Will I feel now
What is real now?
Will I feel now
What is real now?

[Verse 2: Jhene]
I can't afford more problems
I don't have time to solve them
Faking these smiles too often
I do not cry that often
I need to cry more often
Am I living, or
Dying, or
Finding something worth fighting for
I'm the only real I see
I'm the only real I see

Repeat Chorus

[Verse 3: HOPE]
Good intentions, good intentions
Young, old soul
These my hood admissions
Searching heaven's admissions
In these streets we live in
The young raising the younger
We hunger for ears to listen, but I
Come in peace with peace and hair grease
Waves like Catalina
Problems you can't see
A soul full of problems
Eyes filled with glee
If you don't like being judged
Then you shouldn't judge me
I never change

Repeat Chorus

[Verse 4: Roosevelt]
Wake me up if I'm dreaming, now
Get me out of this hazy cloud
Feeling like I'm free falling now
But I'm never gon' hit the ground
Gone through way too many ups and downs
Breaking free from these chains right now
Won't let nothing else hold me down
Letting go of it all, it all, it all

Repeat Chorus
