Mike Posner

"A Lonely Night in Mexico Thinking About Big Sean and Avicii"

[Intro]
...and start up again.
Um, I think it'll be an experience for you that you'll never forget.
Probably will be life-changing.
I think it's going to be very hard on your body.
I think you're gonna be, um, shocked at how difficult it is.
But I applaud you for trying it, I'm really excited for you.
And like Aunt Becky says, "Nobody gets hurt."
So just be safe, and I love you.

[Verse 1]
It's hard to explain what I got the vision for
It's almost like I'm tryna sing a hidden note
And I can't even get it out, though it's it my throat
I get so frustrated, I feel like a misanthrope
I start feeling like my whole life isn't dope
And I've ruined everything with what I didn't know
Then some sh*t my father told me starts hitting home
What the f*ck am I even here livin' for?
I miss my friends, we don't talk as much as we used to
I'm too busy checking on YouTube and scrolling on IG
I tend to get glued to various distractions as my life floats by
Have I just been checked out the whole time?
I spend 85% of it online
And for the things that really matter I got no time (No time)
But wait, if I can get myself out of this broke mood
Then maybe all my listeners could have hope too
Yeah, that's what I'm gon' do
I become who I am from all the sh*t I go through

[Chorus]
Keep walkin'
If I could write my name across the sky for all to see, then I would
If I could bring myself to understand what you are, then I would
And I would if I could, if I could, then I would
And I would if I could, if I could, then I would
And I would if I could, if I could, then I would
And I would if I could, if I could, then I would, and I would

[Verse 2]
I'm a butterfly flyin' through a broken sky
God servin' me truth, and I'm open wide
It takes courage to be still and go inside
I'm on a tip of liberation, watch me toe the line
When yoga pose hits a yoga pose
A part of me that I really hate showin' shows
You get a taste from my post of quotes
But my inner growth is something no one knows
And I hope it shows
In my eyes, in my music, in my vibe, in my kindness
And in my stride, in the grand art piece that is my life
And again, this is just a brush stroke
You've been running long enough, child, come home
Break it down, universe means one song
You wanna taste life, swim into the unknown
I know that I did my best
I'm not designed to eat, sleep, sit, and text
My thirty-first year is a vision quest
I know the answer that I'm lookin' for isn't sex
And it isn't money, isn't fame
It's something much deeper than I can explain
And this verse is just a finger pointin' toward the trail
Soon you gonna have to walk it for yourself

[Chorus]
Keep walkin'
If I could write my name across the sky for all to see, then I would
If I could bring myself to understand what you are, then I would
And I would if I could, if I could, then I would
And I would if I could, if I could, then I would
And I would if I could, if I could, then I would
And I would if I could, if I could, then I would, and I would

[Outro]
If you could give a wish to future Mike when he sets off on his walk in a few months, what would that be?
I wish you remember this is what you wanted.
This is, this is what you wanted.
I understand intellectually there are gonna be terrible moments on this journey
Where I wanna give up, where my body hurts, where I'm thinking
"Why the heck did I choose to do this? This was so stupid."
And the reason you chose to do it
Was to feel what you're feeling right now
And decide to keep going
