Fireworks Lyrics
(feat. Alicia Keys)

[Intro: Alicia Keys]
Ohhh (All I see is fireworks)
Ohhh (Every night it's fireworks)
Ohhh (All I see is fireworks)
Ohhh (Taking off like)
Oh, oh, ohhh, oh ohh

[Verse 1: Drake]
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 it's crowded below
My fifteen minutes started an hour ago
Truth over fame, you know I respect the blatant shit
When I hear 'em 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, bare 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
October's Own, but it's lookin' like July 4
I just wish they'd let you try it first
This time I'm really goin' off, fireworks!

[Chorus: Alicia Keys]
When I go off, like July 4th
Feels like a fire, startin' to go higher
It's your revelation
My sweet celebration
Light me like a rocket, 'cause nothin' can stop it
All I see is fireworks (ohh)
All I see is fireworks (ohh)
Every night it's fireworks (ohh)
Every night it's fireworks (ohh)
All I see is fireworks (ohh)
All I see is fireworks (ohh)
Taking off like fireworks (ohh)
Taking off like oh, oh, ohhh, oh ohh

[Verse 2: Drake]
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'd f*ck with me
Who coulda' predicted love could strike with how 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
There was smoke in the air before now it's 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!

[Chorus: Alicia Keys]
When I go off, like July 4th
Feels like a fire, startin' to go higher
It's your revelation
My sweet celebration
Light me like a rocket, 'cause nothin' can stop it
All I see is fireworks (ohh)
All I see is fireworks (ohh)
Every night it's fireworks (ohh)
Every night it's fireworks (ohh)
All I see is fireworks (ohh)
All I see is fireworks (ohh)
Taking off like fireworks (ohh)
Taking off like oh, oh, ohhh, oh ohh

[Verse 3: Drake]
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
And 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 classic
Searching 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!

[Chorus: Alicia Keys]
When I go off, like July 4th
Feels like a fire, startin' to go higher
It's your revelation
My sweet celebration
Light me like a rocket, 'cause nothin' can stop it
All I see is fireworks (ohh)
All I see is fireworks (ohh)
Every night it's fireworks (ohh)
Every night it's fireworks (ohh)
All I see is fireworks (ohh)
All I see is fireworks (ohh)
Taking off like fireworks (ohh)
Taking off like oh, oh, ohhh, oh ohh
