I miss Long Beach and I miss you babe
I miss dancing with you the most of all
I miss the bar where the Beach Boys would go
Dennis's last stop before Kokomo

 

Those nights were on fire
We couldn't get higher
We didn't know that we had it all
But nobody wants you before the fire

 

I'm wasted
Don't leave, I just need a wake-up call
I'm facing the greatest
The greatest loss of them all
The culture is lit and I had a ball
I guess I'm signing off after all

 

I miss New York and I miss the music
Me and my friends‚ we miss rock and roll
I want shit to feel just like it used to
When baby‚ I was doing nothing the most of all

 

The culture's lit and if this is it‚ I had a ball
I guess that I'm burnt out after all

 

I'm wasted

If this is it, I'm signing off
Miss doing nothing‚ the most of all
Hawaii just missed that fireball
L.A. is in flames, it's getting hot
Kanye West is blonde and gone
Life on Mars ain't just a song
Oh, the livestream's almost on

Already posted this of NFR's pre-release thread. Anyway, has anyone noticed the similarities between the chorus on The Greatest and on Sam Smith's "Im not the only one"?

I'd bet cake this is a play on words, that the world's on fire and it was fun while it lasted. Sort of her version of Jim Morrison's line "I don't know what's gonna happen, man, but I wanna have my kicks before the whole shithouse goes up in flames" which she quoted on Twitter once.

i don’t think she would ever say “the culture was lit” without it being satirical or having some sort of double meaning

I don't understand why people say this every album release? What reason does she have not to release another album I truly do not understand the logic

Well to me that lyric sounds like she’s reflecting on the music industry and her career
but go off sis I want her to stick around making albums for at least another decade

Well... remember when she said “*Without a doubt*within the next five years. Kids. Friends, all that’s a bonus.”
If she really wants to have kids, it would happen in like 2 years? I mean... she’s 34. So yeah, if that ever happens she would take a really long break, but wouldn’t stop writing. And that’s why I hope she goes on a world tour again next year :(

Considering she LITERALLY has done 3 songs for movies this year and just released a completely new track last week that she wrote and recorded less than a week before, she’s not going anywhere... I’ll expect her to start the next era off after this short 15 show tour (at least writing/recording an idea for it)
