SOTD: 2009

I wrote about Mac Miller's recent release Swimming a bit ago, but not in much depth as I didn't have proper time to really dive in and evaluate it. The above video shows the last track as 2009. It's a really nice vibe and I love this Mac.

 

[Intro]
Yeah
Eric
Well

[Chorus]
I don't need to lie no more
Nowadays all I do is shine, take a breath and ease my mind
And she don't cry no more
She tell me that I get her high 'cause an angel's s'posed to fly, and...
I ain't askin' "Why?" no more
Oh, no, I take it if it's mine, I don't stay inside the lines
It ain't 2009 no more
Yeah, I know what's behind that door


[Verse 1]
Yeah, okay you gotta jump in to swim
Well, the light was dim in this life of sin
Now every day I wake up and breathe

I don't have it all but that's alright with me
Take it nice and easy, took a flight to see me
Send you back home with a light that's beamin'
The whole team 'bout to figure it out
We ice cold, that's what winter's about
And sometimes, sometimes I wish I took a simpler route
Instead of havin' demons that's as big as my house, mhmm

Have a ball with a dribble and bounce
'Cause the party ain't over 'til they're kickin' me out, yeah

Isn't it funny? We can make a lot of money
Buy a lot of things just to feel a lot of ugly

I was yay high and muddy
Lookin' for what was lookin' for me
[Chorus]
But I don't need to lie no more
Nowadays all I do is shine, take a breath and ease my mind
And she don't cry no more
She tell me that I get her high 'cause an angel's s'posed to fly, and...
I ain't askin' "Why?" no more
Oh, no, I take it if it's mine, I don't stay inside the lines
It ain't 2009 no more
Yeah, I know what's behind that door

[Verse 2]
Yeah they ask me what I'm smilin' for
Well, because I've never been this high before
It's like I never felt alive before
Mhmm, I'd rather have me peace of mind than war
See me and you, we ain't that different
I struck the fuck out and then I came back swingin'
Take my time to finish, mind my business
A life ain't a life 'til you live it
I was diggin' me a hole big enough to bury my soul
Weight of the world, I gotta carry my own
My own, with these songs I can carry you home
I'm right here when you're scared and alone
And I ain't never in a hurry
You don't ever gotta worry
Even when it's 7:30 and the time is runnin' low
When your heart get cold
See what's behind all them unturned stones
And I'm a pro when it comes to my job
But really I'm just tryna start believin' in God
Now when it gets hard
I don't panic, I don't sound the alarm
[Chorus]
Because I don't need to lie no more
Nowadays all I do is shine, take a breath and ease my mind
And she don't cry no more
She tell me that I get her high 'cause an angel's s'posed to fly, and...
I ain't askin' "Why?" no more
Oh, no, I take it if it's mine, I don't stay inside the lines
It ain't 2009 no more
Yeah, I know what's behind that door

I don't need to lie no more
Nowadays all I do is shine, take a breath and ease my mind
And she don't cry no more
She tell me that I get her high 'cause an angel's s'posed to fly, and...
I ain't askin' "Why?" no more
Oh, no, I take it if it's mine, I don't stay inside the lines
It ain't 2009 no more
Yeah, I know what's behind that door

Mac is back.
