Foster The People – Worst Nites Lyrics

[Chorus]
All my worst nights are the best times
West Coast stealin’ all my shut-eye
All my worst nights are the good kind
High life filtered through the lo-fi

[Verse 1]
Startin’ it up after dark
Chasin’ thoughts, cruisin’ through Echo Park
Joined the vultures eatin’ paradise
Gettin’ tilted, yeah, we’ll pay the price (But ain’t it nice?)

[Pre-Chorus]
Never say, “Goodbye”, we say, “Hello”
Faded in the sunshine and the snow

[Chorus]
All my worst nights are the best times
West Coast stealin’ all my shut-eye
All my worst nights are the good kind
High life filtered through the lo-fi

[Break]

[Verse 2]
Skippin’ lines and brushin’ past the suits
Duckin’ pictures and droppin’ some truths
Now I’m gettin’ lost up in the Hills
But cruise the ’Gram and now I’m catchin’ feels
Is this for real?

[Pre-Chorus]
Never say, “Goodbye”, we say, “Hello”
Faded in the sunshine and the snow

[Chorus]
All my worst nights are the best times
West Coast stealin’ all my shut-eye
All my worst nights are the good kind
High life filtered through the lo-fi

[Break]

[Bridge]
Yeah, you know
It’s only in L.A
Yeah, uh huh
(La-la-la-la, la-la-la-la)
Only in L.A
(La-la-la-la, la-la-la-la)

[Chorus]
All my worst nights are the best times
West Coast stealin’ all my shut-eye
All my worst nights are the good kind
High life filtered through the lo-fi

[Outro]
(Lo-fi, lo-fi)
Yeah, uh huh
Highs filtered through the low
You know, woo
High life filtered through the lo-fi

Amine – Turf (feat. Charlie Wilson)

[Verse 1: Aminé]
Walking on the pavement I check my pride and my teeth on
The girl I grew up with lives a couple houses down
The 8 Bus run the same, dogs howl when the train
Comes like me ex girl and next girl
Used to rock the S curl
Wanted me a Nextel but my momma copped a Razr
That’s why I couldn’t blame her
Flipping through my past like I used to flip the phone
They kicking out the blacks and all the houses getting clones
Friends used to do pills and only eat at Du’s Grill
The food was pretty good but the times was better
These are the only days I missed
Like the first shawty I kissed
I used to have dreams now I dream

[Hook: Aminé]
I look around and I see nothing in my neighborhood
Not satisfied don’t think I ever wanna stay for good
Packed up my bags, told mom and dad I gotta go, go
And once I do they’ll finally see the enemy

[Verse 2: Aminé]
Everybody wanna be a star, everybody want a nice car
Everybody wanna live great, have a good damn time, never trip with the law
The popo up in PO, dirtier than VO
Police from the past act like I’m they fucking hero
Living in LA for the weather, I facetime mom when I miss her
I got some homies that’ll never leave my home
When I pull up to the corner, it smell like Miley Cyrus
I told em’ I don’t smoke, they say “boy, you fucking wildin’”
Innocent and young, reckless and we dumb
Our heart is like our earth and memories the sun

[Hook: Aminé]
I look around and I see nothing in my neighborhood
Not satisfied don’t think I ever wanna stay for good
Packed up my bags, told mom and dad I gotta go, go
And once I do they’ll finally see the enemy

[Verse 3: Aminé]
Mentality the same from my folks
Momma wanna see me happy, she don’t wanna see me broke
I said “bread wine, sauvignon, rastafari, babylon”
You can never die if I live it like a prize (hey!)
Who knows who I am, who knows who I are
Most people pretty sketch like a night at Echo Park
That’s why I just keep it cool but my time is in a leisure
Everytime I’m home I catch emotion like a seizure

[Interlude]
I cut the first night, we fuck around, I put my finger in her bootyhole cause you know you gotta test the water with hoes. A-a-and then.. *laughing*
I slip and slide through the times in my youth
What’s the age? Too young to worry, too old to dream
What’s the age? Imagination to me, tragedy to some
What’s the age? I guess we’ll find out when we’re older. Touché

[Hook: Charlie Wilson]
I look around and I see nothing in my neighborhood
Not satisfied don’t think I ever wanna stay for good
Packed up my bags, told mom and dad I gotta go, go
And once I do they’ll finally see the enemy

[Outro: Charlie Wilson]
Oh
Ooh, oh, ooh, oh yeah
Ooh, ooh, oh yeah, ooh
Yeah-eah-eah-eah-eah
Oo yeah-eah-eah-eah
Ohhhh hmm
Ohhhh hmm
Hmm
Hmm

Dirty Projectors – Up In Hudson

[Intro]
I caught the sunrise in your eyes

[Verse 1]
The first time ever I saw your face, laid my eyes on you
Was the Bowery Ballroom stage, you were shredding Marshall tubes
And I knew that I had to get to know
You, why don’t you pack your clothes?
Move to Brooklyn on your own
And join the band, come on the road

We talked for like two minutes
But I had a feeling
Something awkward but new between us
Something strong and appealing

And we both had girl and boyfriends blowing us up SMS
But we both knew a mood like this so strong would be wrong to suppress
Felt like it bore the impressive destiny
I [?] then New England, our eyes met, we said yes and we

[Chorus]
Love will burn out (We said yes and we)
Love will just fade away

[Verse 2]
First time I ever kissed your mouth, we both felt time stop
My heart, it leapt up, wow, jumped from a mountaintop
Then I knew, maybe I could be with you
Do the things that lovers do
Slightly domesticate the truth
And write your "Stillness Is the Move"

The ceilings that we ignored
But slept on floors never-ending
Our feeling obscured but pure
And our love ascending

This is how we saw the world, side-by-side from the road and the stage
So our lives were twined and curled and mixed up like the chord we obeyed
And that was basically my dream and I dreamed it with you till we betrayed it

[Chorus]
And love will burn out
And love will just fade away
And love’s gonna rot
And love will just dissipate

[Bridge]
Now we’re going our separate ways
But we’re still connected
You’ll go forward and I’ll stay the same
And that’s how it breaks
Wash it away, wash it away
All of the pain, all of the pain and anger
It slips away, love slips away
But it will remain, it will remain unanswered

[Verse 3]
Now I’m listening to Kanye on the Taconic Parkway, riding fast
And you’re out in Echo Park, blasting 2Pac, drinking a fifth for my ass
I’m just up in Hudson bored and destructive knowing that nothing lasts

[Chorus]
‘Cause love will burn out
And love will just fade away
Yeah love’s gonna rot
And love will just dissipate
‘Cause love will burn out
And love will just fade away
And love’s gonna rot
And love will just dissipate
