Head in the Clouds

(Jesse!!!!)
What??
(What are you doing?)
Just daydreaming, I guess... I guess I just have my head in the clouds
(What were you thinking about?)
...................................................................................
I was thinking about the time when we were kids
We were scared when our parents caught us in fibs
Thats when we used to embrace our childish lifestyle
Man it's been a minute since I had a genuine smile
Hey, remember all those shows back in the day
How we grew up, it couldn't be any other way
We wanted to pull "hoes," man we were lame
We were fronting knowing we didn't have any game
Honestly though, that was perfectly fine
Because having fun was always on our mind
Because being a goofy kid was always the wave
And these memories I'll cherish to my grave
.............................................................................
My heads in the clouds; refusing to look down
Thinking about the times that lifted up my frown
Thinking about the moments that I'll never forget
Looking up at the clouds that refuse to sit
I have my head up high in the clouds
At first to look for a way out
But now I've decided to take a different route
Because I want to know what this life is about
....................................................................................
As we grew older, we tried to find our style
We went through many looks, so it took a while
We cycled through phases, like we rode our bikes
Daydreaming how our future wives looked like
Instead of only looking to see if her ass was fat
We were curious to know where her head was at
We didn't have much luck in finding the "one,"
Surely she's present somewhere under the Sun
Maybe we'll never get to see our wives
In the blink of an eye could be the end of our lives
Maybe I should stop thinking so loud
This is what happens when my head is in the clouds
........................................................................................
My heads in the clouds; refusing to look down
Thinking about the times that lifted up my frown
Thinking about the moments that I'll never forget
Looking up at the clouds that refuse to sit
I have my head up high in the clouds
At first to look for a way out
But now I've decided to take a different route
Because I want to know what this life is about
....................................................................................
Remembering the time of my adolescence
When my confidence was the lowest it had ever been
Was my life really worth the pursuit
Should I jump out without a parachute
But those memories lifted me from the ground
They brought me back before I could drown
Maybe I don't know where the girl of my dreams is
And maybe I wasn't the most popular kid
And I may not have the highest self esteem
And I may of had strong anxiety
Maybe I wasn't happy with who I was
Maybe I belittled myself just because
But looking back I wouldn't change my life at all
Those memories were 9-1-1, and I had to place the call
These abundant clouds are so beautiful
And my chin is feeling the gravitational pull
I'll only look up, because I can't look at the ground
I want my mind to be free, that's why my head is in the clouds
