Living the good life full of goodbyes My eyes are on the grey skies Saying I don't want to come home tonight Yeah, and I'm high up, off what? I don't even remember But my friend passed out in the Uber ride. Oh, I'm from the city of the Where all the girls are pretty And they're down for the hype All my boys are with me Going up for the night But who cares, who cares 'Cause this is our year. So wake me up in the spring While I'm high off my American dream We don't always say what we mean That's the lie of an American teen. Maybe the end is near But I've been waiting all year To get the hell up out of here And throw away my fears I'm so faded I'm so faded Off of all the things that I've taken, and Maybe I'm not really drunk Maybe I'm really good at faking.
