Lyrics:
You know, you're kinda like the female G-Eazy
The confidence of Drake with the goofiness of Weezy
Give me a piece of paper and I'll write shit easy peazy
No confusion, got a dream and I'll achieve it, lemon squeezy, yep

When I grow up, I want a charger and a Benzy
I wake up every day and work until the day endzy
People come to me when their life is in a frenzy
If to you my vision's blurry, wipe your fuckin lenzy

Have no doubt the shit I dream will truly happen
Feel it in my soul, it's like my conscious always tappin
See myself on stages, to a crowd I will be rappin
I know I'm 19, but good God, let's get it crackin

On the move, every day's a new location
My life is kinda cool, it's like a constant vacation
Girls in my DM's, let me give you a quotation,
Yeah, "I love you SO MUCH Lauren, you're my inspiration!!!"

Oh, am I really? Goddamn, this shit moves super fast
Getting work done cause I don't care to finish last
Got a job, got a girl, and yeah, I got a past
Which is exactly why I'll strive to make my future last

"Way to go baby!" - fam's always got my back,
Even back at the house when all I did was slack
Even when I was going down the wrong path,
That's what happens when it's confidence you lack

Refuse to turn back, right now all I see is forward
All I see are dreams and goals, that's all I'll move toward
Is my merch ordered? In size order? Is my art bordered? Am I a performer?

Are we getting warmer? Is it my time?
If not, I'll do it by myself, don't wanna stand in line
If you want it, you will get it, draw the line
Cause time don't stop for anybody, I'm not wasting mine

So from now on, listen to your soul
If you got so many dreams, how come they never show?
Man it's up to you, that's all I know
What you think you become, that's how it goes

Your problem is you think it's all a joke
Don't give into society, I swear it's all a hoax
They tell you you're not beautiful and then they brag and boast
But your worth is not defined by the likes on shit you post

Do the most, everything you got and more
There's so much more to life, take a second to explore
Your mind and all your thoughts, fuck, it's really not a chore
Sit down with a journal, get a pen, and let it pour

Yeah, yeah, cause how you think this song was made?
Think about it, really think, before you throw me shade
I'm just a normal kid, livin life, can't complain
I've got a little knowledge so trust me when I say

STAY POSITIVE AND STAY YOU, every day.
When you're positive, the negatives fade away
It happens when you change your mind, in every way
Listen to my words, let em sink in and pray.

Dear Universe, lemme tell you bout my day
Nothing's working, swear it's not, that's what you'll say
My life's going wrong, and to my dismay
I can't find happiness and when I do it never stays

My boyfriend's been cheatin', gettin laid
Plus I lost my job now, I'm not gettin paid
I bend backwards, just to make the good stay
Then the sad comes and it never goes away

I've tried everything - drinking, smoking, nothing works
Tell me why all I ever seem to do is hurt
Why's this happening, universe, you hear my thoughts?
Cause honestly, at this point, they're really all I've got

It's worth a shot, please, someone do you hear me?
I know you're there, God, please, someone do you feel me?
I need some good thoughts, and energy near me,
Say "thank you," and sign your name, "Sincerely"

The universe surrounds you when you share your voice
But he needs all your attention so clear the noise
He'll tell you happy's not a destination, it's a choice
No direction, don't wait for him to fuckin point

It's up to you, you decide with every glance you take
Good or bad is a decision you gotta make
Is it really that deep? Ask yourself and wait
Can I help the situation or won't it change?

Guess you'll never know
Cause you never do it
You see a problem and you give up
(Nah man, screw it)

You're in a constant battle, but I'll help you through it
If you're willing,
Start fresh like a fuckin' tourist
When this song ends,
Really think about your life

I have faith in you,
Take my words as advice,
You are beautiful and everything will be alright,
Make the change you wanna see, all doubts aside.

(Lauren talking):
Whew
That shit was fuckin' long as fuck
But long story short, like,
The people who try and bring you down are already below you
Just do you,
Fuck it
Bye.
