Watsky – Welcome to the Family [official video]


Hello hello hello hello
it’s a motherfucking pleasure No pressure but, would you like to blow my mind
and move too fast and plan our perfect lives together? Holy holy holy holy (holy shit!)
you mean to tell me tell me tell you’re tough to love when you don’t love yourself? Well, welcome to the family
Welcome to the family Welcome to the family my less exciting features are packed
inside my body. They’re crammed into the balcony, they’re jamming up the lobby
They’re falling out the window, you can see them crashing through the glass when I don’t
keep my lids closed. As the director flicks his wrist, a stagehand in the
wings has got a silver chain he grips and when he lifts it opens up the velvet
curtains of my lips, and I say Welcome to the family, welcome to the family,
welcome to the family We’re not looking to wish on a star
We’re no good at receiving the help who the hell do you think that you are
Trying to make me believe in myself? You’re like the sun in the summertime
I know you are but what am I? I don’t really want to sound like a lullaby,
but I think every family is a butterfly you know, pretty from afar, pretty gross up close
don’t pity what we are, it’s mostly un-hideous and I’m sitting at the bar with a beer, so cheers,
come toast me. Get cozy since we’re both lonely. Why don’t we leap and then
go see what we become when it’s done It’s dumb, but I’m not looking below, so don’t ghost me
and it’s seeming like we’re in agreement that the demon that we’re fighting
isn’t the exact same. But if we’re teaming up and carrying the weight together we can miss a bit of back pain. And if you’re into it then we can get up out the
city in a minute in the fast lane Get hitched in a chapel in Vegas
maybe get rich, life is a craps game And I’ll take my cue from you on what you want to
bout a last name It’s not so bad to be a Watsky. Welcome to the family, welcome to the family
welcome to the family those fires in your attic
that rage without permission some days invade your living room
or break out in the kitchen they breeze right through the building
they just show up as they please and then retreat like grown-up children
Well how’d you like this split this L And tell me what you witnessed if the price of
life is hell, well no one ever had to sell me on how nice the fire smells Welcome to the family, welcome to the family
welcome to the family and there’s so much I’ve been silent on
but I’ll whisper every secret to you when this mic is gone. and I know you’ll listen
and I know it’s different. But it gives me peace our missing pieces could be siblings.
The rough nights ain’t leaving.
So why the hell should we? And I say welcome to the family,
welcome to the family, welcome to the family You deserve love
(Welcome to the family) You deserve love
(Welcome to the family) You deserve love You deserve love
(Welcome to the family) Well, well, well, well
Well, well, well, well
