I Took a Pill in Ibiza (Original Version)
Mike Posner

Lyrics


I took a pill in Ibiza
to show Avicii I was cool.
And when I finally got sober, felt ten years older, but f**k it, it was something to do.
I'm living out in L.A.
I drive a sports car just to prove
I'm a real big baller 'cause I made a million dollars and I spent it on girls and shoes.

But you don't wanna be high like me,
never really knowing why like me.
You don't ever wanna step off that roller coaster and be all alone.
You don't wanna ride the bus like this, never knowing who to trust like this.
You don't wanna be stuck up on that stage singing,
stuck up on that stage singing.

All I know
are sad songs,
sad songs.
Darling, all I know
are sad songs,
sad songs.

I'm just a singer
who already blew his shot.
I get along with old timers, 'cause my name's a reminder of a pop song people forgot.
And I can't keep a girl, no,
'cause as soon as the sun comes up,
I cut 'em all loose and work's my excuse, but the truth is I can't open up.

But you don't wanna be high like me,
never really knowing why like me.
You don't ever wanna step off that roller coaster and be all alone.
You don't wanna ride the bus like this, never knowing who to trust like this.
You don't wanna be stuck up on that stage singing,
stuck up on that stage singing.

All I know
are sad songs,
sad songs.
Darling, all I know
are sad songs,
sad songs.


I took a plane to my hometown,
I brought my pride and my guitar.
Well, my friends are all gone,
but there's manicured lawns,
and the people still think I'm a star.
I walked around downtown,
I met some fans on Lafayette.
They said, "Tell us how to make it, 'cause we're gettin' real impatient."
So I looked 'em in the eye and said...

You don't wanna be high like me,
never really knowing why like me.
You don't ever wanna step off that roller coaster and be all alone.
You don't wanna ride the bus like this, never knowing who to trust like this.
You don't wanna be stuck up on that stage singing,
stuck up on that stage singing.

All that I know
are sad songs,
sad songs.
Darling, all that I know
are sad songs,
sad songs.
