Ryan Caraveo – Thrivin Lyrics

Thrivin by Ryan Caraveo


Girls — they used to play me
Teachers,  they used to hate me
Used  to ride in that Buick
Pretending it was Mercedes
Poof — made it reality
Used  to be just fiction
Mama,  look, I’m finally a magician
Everything I envisioned happened like abracadabra
My  girl, she feel the same
And dudes used to laugh at her
Now they wonder how she doing
Ask her, I’d be flattered
Her  brain’s been getting bigger, a-- been getting fatter, yeah
We been eating great, oh
Squeaky-clean plates, oh
Imma rub her feet, oh
She gon’ feed me grapes, oh
Then we’ll make a movie for a fee, I leak the tape
No, not really, but she’s cheesin’ now
You should see her face

Yeah, I’m good
Yeah, I’m fine
I don’t wake up feelin’ like I wanna die, no
‘Cause I’m thrivin’ now, I’m thrivin’ now
Yeah, I’m thrivin’ now
I’m thrivin’ now
Yeah, I’m good
Yeah, I’m fine
I don’t do the s--- I used to do to survive, no
‘Cause I’m thrivin’ now, I’m thrivin’ now
Yeah, I’m thrivin’ now
I’m thrivin’ now

I just wanna say, “sorry”
I have been oh-so selfish
Living my life — not too involved in no one else’s
I guess I got too greedy
Scared to love freely
Can’t hold a conversation, blamed it on my ADD
Yeah, I blamed it on my habits that, old habits that
Die hard — doing anything to have some racks
Stay running game, always something to slang
Louis belts and J’s, ecstasy and yay
Used to post at the mall, bootlegging Beats by Dre
Didn’t commute for two hours to earn my minimum wage
And that’s just ten percent of the ways that I got paid
The other ninety percent, I gotta take to the grave

Yeah, I’m good
Yeah, I’m fine
I don’t wake up feelin’ like I wanna die, no
‘Cause I’m thrivin’ now, I’m thrivin’ now
Yeah, I’m thrivin’ now
I’m thrivin’ now
Yeah, I’m good
Yeah, I’m fine
I don’t do the s--- I used to do to survive, no
‘Cause I’m thrivin’ now, I’m thrivin’ now
Yeah, I’m thrivin’ now
I’m thrivin’ now

Yeah, I’m good, good, good
Yeah, I’m good, good, good
Yeah, I’m good, good, good
Yeah, I’m good, good, good

Yeah, I’m good
Yeah, I’m fine
I don’t do the s--- I used to do to survive, no
‘Cause I’m thrivin’ now, I’m thrivin’ now
Yeah, I’m thrivin’ now
I’m thrivin’ now
