Lyrics[edit | edit source]

[Daniel Johnston & Lana Del Rey]:
But don't give, but don't give
True love finds you in the end
But don't give, but don't give
True love will find you in the end

[Mac Miller]:
I told you once that I made it (Made it)
That everything would start changin' (Changin')
Been wakin' up when it's rainin', but I ain't one for complainin'
And I ain't one to tell somebody what to do
With their own life, own life (Life)
People say what I should do with mine
Well, that's the shit that I don't like
I go nice with that numbness (Numbness)
Me usin' drugs with my crutches (Crutches)
Got purp inside of these Dutches
Double cup and that's what I fuck with (Fuck with)
'Cause everybody got substance (Yeah)
And everybody addicted (So?)
Everybody got a life to live
But not everybody go live it (Huh)
I seen some people conflicted
They lose their minds to these riches (Riches)
Testin' all of their limits then burnin' all of their bridges
How beautiful are these women? (Women)
But I be callin' them bitches (Bitches)
And I be fallin' a victim to
Everything in their system (System)
I'm tryna tell my own story (Story)
Tryna make up my own mind
So why you tellin' it for me? (For me)
Pick on somebody your own size
Don't know why I'm so high
On a blind hunt for that goldmine
I look more, one more time
What happens to a star that don't shine?

[Lana Del Rey & Daniel Johnston]:
Don't be sad (I know you will)
Don't give up until (Don't give up until)
True love will find you in the end

[Mac Miller]:
I'm goin' back and forth in my head
No, I won't sleep 'til I'm dead
My thoughts run like they off the leash
With shit I need to confess
I'm sick of thinkin' 'bout stress
My family think I'm a mess
'Cause when I'm not at my best
Why does everybody obsess, sayin':
"Get a little bit of exercise
Get a little bit of time to refresh the mind"
And, and I guess I'll testify that
I've had some better times before (Whoa)
When will I learn to let it go?
I'm not tryna be emo (Emo)
Still love a bitch with a deepthroat (Deepthroat)
Still ballin' like a Marino
With my homies watchin' Casino
People on the damn internet think I'm doin' blow by the ski slope
Fuckin' hoes with a trio (Trio)
They know nothin' 'bout me though (Me though)
I think often, feel blessed
Live life, but I know death (Death)
Work hard, progress
Let it go, don't stress (Stress)
Diplo gave me this beat
Said, "Spit though" (Though)
Lookin' out my bedroom window
Wonder when does all of this go (This go)

[Lana Del Rey, Daniel Johnston & Mac Miller]:
Don't be sad (I know you will) (Wonder when does all of this go)
Don't give up until (Don't give up until)
True love will find you in the end (Wonder when does all of this go)
Don't be sad (I know you will) (Wonder when does all of this go)
Don't give up until (Don't give up until)
True love will find you in the end (Wonder when does all of this go)
