Song meaning and background of Lucid Dreams by Juice Wrld


Juice Wrld said the song was intended to be a "therapy session" during a time when he was having relationship issues in a June 2018 interview with Lyrical Lemonade.


Sting controlled 85% of the rights to "Lucid Dreams," which includes an adaptation of his 1993 song "Shape of My Heart," according to producer Nick Mira, who made the revelation in 2018.


Members of the now-defunct pop punk band Yellowcard filed a $15 million lawsuit against Juice Wrld in October 2019 alleging that "Lucid Dreams" plagiarised the melody of their song "Holly Wood Died." A "deadline for defendants to respond to the lawsuits" was extended by the group after Juice Wrld passed away on December 8, 2019.


The song, which was produced by Nick Mira, made its Billboard Hot 100 debut at position 74 and reached its highest position there at position 2.


Lyrics of Lucid Dreams by Juice Wrld


Enviyon on the mix

No, no, no, no

No-no, no, no, no

No, no, no, no, no

No, no, no, no

 

I still see your shadows in my room

Can't take back the love that I gave you

It's to the point where I love and I hate you

And I cannot change you so I must replace you (oh)

Easier said than done

I thought you were the one

Listening to my heart instead of my head

You found another one, but

I am the better one

I won't let you forget me

I still see your shadows in my room

Can't take back the love that I gave you

It's to the point where I love and I hate you

And I cannot change you so I must replace you (oh)

Easier said than done

I thought you were the one

Listening to my heart instead of my head

You found another one, but

I am the better one

I won't let you forget me

 

You left me falling and landing inside my grave

I know that you want me dead

I take prescriptions to make me feel a-okay

I know it's all in my head

 

I have these lucid dreams where I can't move a thing

Thinking of you in my bed

You were my everything

Thoughts of a wedding ring

Now I'm just better off dead

I'll do it over again

I didn't want it to end

I watch it blow in the wind

I should've listened to my friends

Leave this shit in the past

But I want it to last

You were made outta plastic (fake)

I was tangled up in your drastic ways

Who knew evil girls had the prettiest face

You gave me a heart that was full of mistakes

I gave you my heart and you made heart break

 

You made my heart break

You made my heart ache

(I still see your shadows in my room)

You made my heart break

You made my heart ache

(Can't take back the love that I gave you)

You made my heart break

(Were made outta plastic fake)

You made my heart ache

(I still see your shadows in my room)

You made my heart break again

(I was tangled up your drastic ways)

(Who knew evil girls had the prettiest face?)

 

I still see your shadows in my room

Can't take back the love that I gave you

It's to the point where I love and I hate you

And I cannot change you so I must replace you (oh)

Easier said than done

I thought you were the one

Listening to my heart instead of my head

You found another one, but

I am the better one

I won't let you forget me

I still see your shadows in my room

Can't take back the love that I gave you

It's to the point where I love and I hate you

And I cannot change you so I must replace you (oh)

Easier said than done

I thought you were the one

Listening to my heart instead of my head

You found another one, but

I am the better one

I won't let you forget me

 

Leave this shit in the past but I want it to last

You were made outta plastic (fake)

I was tangled up in your drastic ways

Who knew evil girls had the prettiest face?

 

Easier said than done

I thought you were the one

(Instead of my head)

I won't let you forget me
