highs n lows lyrics – kid cudi

“highs n lows”

i be high when i split a dutch and fill it up
i be high when i get my money doubled up
i be high when a model wanna let me cut
i be high when i’m signing cus my diamonds blush

i be low when a n*gg* cant get away
i be low when i cant seem to make a way
i be low when i can’t even feed myself
i be low when i realize i’m by myself

but i be high when i’m shopping for expensive clothes
i be high when i get what i couldn’t before
i be high in the club while i’m poppin bub
i be high when i’m cruising sitting on them dubs

but i be low after shows in my dressing room
i be low when i see that i’m a different dude
i be low on the plane looking at the sky
i be low but my highs keep a n*gg* tied

[chorus:]
i be high then i be low
i be low then i be high
it’s like a battle knife to a gun fight
but i be cool this the story of my life
i be high then i be low
i be low then i be high
it’s like a battle knife to a gun fight
no need to worry this the story of my life

i be low when i gotta get ready for work
i be low cus after bills my pockets be hurt
i be low when i can’t take a girl out
i be low cus they can’t even figure me out

but i be high when the phony chicks show me love
cus in my mind i read them but i dont give a f*ck
i be high when a n*gg* get attention
i be high when your girl catch feelings

then i be low when i go into that empty sp*ce
i be low when i’m looking at a stressed face
i be low cus my brother’s facing hard times
and i be low cus my n*gg* ryan close behind

then i’m high when i know the places we can go
i be high when i think what the future holds
i be high when she asks for my room number
i be high but my lows keep a n*gg* humble

[chorus]

i was high when the label said that i was dope
i was high in my eyes cus i had hope
i was high when i first had the taste of love
i was high when i left the city i was from

and i was low when i had a recent heartbreak
i was low cus i truly thought i had a mate
i was low when i lost her over sillyness
i was low cus she twisted what my words meant

but i was high when i finally had the chance to see
everything thats pretty aint always good for me
i was high when she first said i liked you
man i must be too high to even write dude
and these things show you growth
some n*gg*s show a little but i show you the most
highs n’ lows and succeed fo sho
the only thing left to do is say a toast
cus

[chorus]

now won’t you please say scotty lord,
help me please, yeah, help me please
now won’t you please say scotty lord,
won’t you please, god, help me please
