Rakei, Jordan - Talk To Me Lyrics

You cannot compare yourself to me
We are different
Trapped inside a fake reality

You cannot compare yourself to me
We are different
Trapped inside a fake reality

Waiting for disaster to strike me once I fall
Oh, I'm riding high
Yes, I'm riding high
Oh, I'm riding high
Yes, I'm riding

Better than I was before
Better than the usual
Waiting for disaster to strike me once I fall
Oh, I'm riding high
Yes, I'm riding high
Oh, I'm riding high
Yes, I'm riding
