Steve Lacy - Mercury Lyrics




Gemini
I'm a myth and I'm a legend
Who never wins
And might not ever play again
Keep falling in
Love so fast then back out again
Speeding
When I should ease in

Oh I know myself, my sins
Dug my pit then I fell in
Pulled the trigger, killed us both
Lesson learned but truth gets old

Little of heaven, little unpleasant
I don't know
Little of pleasure, little depression
I don't know
Little of heaven, little unpleasant
I don't know
How can I tell if? How can I measure?
If I don't know

I looked up at the ceiling
As I draft my "I'm so sorry" text
Don't regret the choice I chose
But do regret the mess I made
I see you hurt and wish
I could just hold you tight and close
Don't need long, just wanna say
I love you and miss you most

Oh I know myself, my skin
Rolling stones don't crawl back in
Daddy's faults fell down on me
Break that curse for sweet relief

Little of heaven, little unpleasant
I don't know
Little of pleasure, little depression
I don't know
Little of heaven, little unpleasant
I don't know
How can I tell if? How can I measure?
If I don't know

Mercury running amuck in my mind
Can't tell if I'm winning or falling behind
Venus in retrograde got me in bed
And thinking 'bout all of the shit that I said
Gemini scope give me depth 'till I'm dead
But I can't seem to get the fuck out my head
Well fuck it, I'll just cop a Porsche instead
I do as I please and you see where it lead
Guess something bad ain't 'bout to happen to me
You think I'm two-faced, I can name twenty-three

My layers, all these sides
Could you stick by for the ride?
It's a thrill
And I don't even know how to feel
Might be too real
Might be too
Real
Might be too real, real
I said might be too
I said might be too real real
I said might be too real

Excuse me if I lied
I forgot I said that
Can you forgive my tongue?
I'll show you where my head at
I don't think I'm the one
But I could be your girlfriend
'Till retrograde is done

  5. Dean Beats

    @Bettie bacall like Ive heard this type of "song" before

  6. Kenna

    Steve is the kind of success story that encourages me as a underground artist with a small following. Seeing how he’s developed his skills and slowly blown up after seizing each and every opportunity he’s been giving has been inspirational! Mans has quickly become a mainstay in the industry and for good reason. Dude is too nice! I know if I put in the work, I can reach a larger audience some day too, but for now, I’m happy being a supporter. My turn will come too. Salute to Steve Lacy🔥

  7. Caroline

    Your turn will come. All the best to you!

  8. Cheif Queef

    The instrumentals, vocals, and visuals are everything! So proud of Steve's evolution and the upcoming album!!!

  18. Michael Watkins

    Watching Steve grow as an artist has been awesome. The production on this song is so good, you can tell either him or his label is investing a lot into this album. Can’t wait.

  19. elijahh lacy

    album about to have me dancing and throwing up 🙏🏽
    update: i was right, still recovering 😻

  42. Caroline

    I'm really feeling this. Very reflective...You can tell Steve's been going through some thangs. It must be a challenge dealing with fame so young, especially when it sneaks up on you all of a sudden.....

  43. Jason Jarvis

    He is an absolute work of art. To say I love this man is an understatement; thanks so much for your artistry, Steve Lacy:)

  44. Amir Butcher

    That shirt is (probably) a punk rock reference! Nice!
    For reference, hardcore punk band Dead Kennedy’s wore shirts with S at a concert in the 80s, with the tie over it making the $ sign. They performed one song, which lambasted pop rock, labels and sellouts.
    Not sure what Steve Lacy has to do with it, but it’ll be interesting to see!

  45. Adam Delbeke

    thinking the same thing

  46. I. S.

    The detail in this video is amazing. The camera does three 360’s before ending, and the song is called Mercury. The 360’s are like orbits around the sun. 3 Mercury orbits = 264 Earth days according to google. It could take 264 days for the album to come out but I doubt it. Just something I thought tbh. I have no idea what the dog could mean besides it progressively getting closer and eventually hurting Steve.

  47. shania makeen

    the album comes out next week

  48. 123 Heat

    Fun fact: if Gemini was a planet, its mercury (search it up)
