Lighters Song Lyrics

[Chorus: Bruno Mars]
This one's for you and me
Living out our dreams
We're all right where we should be
Lift my arms out wide, I open my eyes
And now all I wanna see
Is a sky full of lighters
A sky full of lighters

[Verse 1: Eminem]
By the time you hear this
I will have already spiralled up
I would never do nothing
To let you cowards f**k my world up
If I was you I would duck
Or get struck like lightning
Fighters keep fighting
Put your lighters up, point 'em skyward, uh
Had a dream, I was king, I woke up, still king
This rap game's nipple is mine for the milking
'Til nobody else even f**king feels me, 'til it kills me
I swear to God I'll be the f**king illest in this music
There is, or there ever will be, disagree? Feel free
But from now on I'm refusing to ever give up
Only thing I ever gave up's using no more excuses
Excuse me if my head is too big for this building
And pardon me if I'm a cocky prick
But you cocks are sl!ck
Popping sh!t on how you flipped your life around
Crock of sh!t
Who you d!cks tryna kid?
Flip "d!ck" you did opposite
You stayed the same
'cause "cock" backwards is still "cock, " you pricks!
I love it when I tell 'em shove it
‘Cause it wasn’t that long ago
When Marshall sat flustered
Lacked luster ‘cause he couldn’t cut mustard
Muster up nothing, brain fuzzy
‘Cause he’s buzzin’, woke up from that buzz and
Now you wonder why he does it how he does it
Wasn’t ‘cause he had buzzards
Circling around his head
Waiting for him to drop dead, was it?
Or was it ‘cause some b!tches wrote him off?
Little hussy-as* scuzzes
F**k it, guess it doesn’t matter now, does it?
What difference it make? What’s it take?
To get it through your thick skulls that this ain’t
Some bullsh!t; people don’t usually come back this way
From a place that was dark
As I was in just to get to this place
Now let these words be like
A switchblade to a hater’s ribcage!
And let it be known that from this day forward
I wanna just say Thanks
‘cause your hate is what gave me the strength
So let them Bics raise
‘cause I came with 5'9"
But I feel like I’m 6'8"

[Chorus: Bruno Mars]
This one's for you and me
Living out our dreams
We are right where we should be
With my arms out wide, I open my eyes
And now all I wanna see
Is a sky full of lighters
A sky full of lighters

[Verse 2: Royce Da 5'9"]
By the time you hear this
I’ll prolly already be outtie
I advance like going from toting iron to going
And buyin’ Four or five of the homies the Iron Man Audi
My daddy told me
"Slow down, boy, you're going to blow it!"
And I ain't gotta stop the beat a minute to tell
Shady I love him
The same way that he did Dr. Dre on The Chronic
Tell him how real he is, or how high I am
Or how I would kill for him, for him to know it
I cried plenty tears, my daddy got a bad back
So it's only right that I write 'til he can march right
Into that post office and tell 'em to hang it up
Now his career's LeBron's Jersey in twenty years
I stop when I'm at the very top
You sh!tted on me on your way up
It's 'bout to be a scary drop
‘Cause what goes up must come down
You going down on something you don't wanna see
Like a hairy box
Every hour, happy hour now, life is wacky now
Used to have to eat the cat to get the pu**y
Now I'm just the cat's meow, oww, outclass the count
Always down for the catchweight like Pacquiao
Y'all are doomed
I remember when T-Pain ain't wanna work with me
My car starts itself, parks itself, and auto-tunes
‘Cause now I'm in the Aston; I went from having
My city locked up to getting treated like Kwame Kilpatrick
And now I'm fantastic, compare it to a weed high
And y'all n!ggas that's gossiping like b!tches
On the radio and TV, see me, we fly
Y'all bugging out like Wendy Williams staring at a beehive
And how real is that? I remember signing my first deal
Now I'm the second best, I can deal with that
Now Bruno can show his ass, without the MTV awards gag

[Bridge: Bruno Mars]
You and I know what it's like
To be kicked down, forced to fight
But tonight, we're all right
So hold up your lights
Let it shine, 'cause—

[Chorus: Bruno Mars]
This one's for you and me
Living out our dreams
We are right where we should be
With my arms out wide, I open my eyes
And now all I wanna see
Is a sky full of lighters
A sky full of lighters
