Machine Gun Kelly - Swing Life Away Lyrics




[Kellin Quinn:]
Am I loud and clear?

[Machine Gun Kelly:]
Or do I gotta scream like I did every day when I was a troubled teen, huh?
Do you want to know my past and see every single scar and know what they mean, huh?
17 running up in Mickey D's begging for a double cheese, huh,
Singing, "I don't want to grow up, don't nobody like you when you're 23."
I came from nothing but a fucking unsupportive father I don't ever see,
I had to watch a crooked jury put my brother in the penitentiary,
I never fit in.
Criticism made me the man I couldn't be,
I'm reminiscing on when life was different spending every day at Chuckee Cheese, uh

[Kellin Quinn:]
We live on front porches and swing life away,
We get by just fine here on minimum wage,
If love is a labor I'll slave 'til the end,
And I'll run these streets if you give me a chance,
I've been here so long,

[Machine Gun Kelly:]
Maybe I should runaway,
Try to find a summer day,
What is love?
Love is pain,
Love is butterflies and stomach aches,
Love is looking out a windowpane, tears dripping looking like you're in the rain,
For someone you don't even know but for somebody you may never see again,
I am only alive once,
And I'mma die when God wants,
So fill the sky with diamonds,
'Cause that's how it's gonna look when I'm gone,
Had a vision as a kid that one day I would change the world with my song,
Several years have passed and now that vision came to life that boy's a fucking icon,

[Kellin Quinn:]
We live on front porches and swing life away,
We get by just fine here on minimum wage,
If love is a labor I'll slave 'til the end,
And I'll run these streets if you give me a chance,

[Machine Gun Kelly:]
Sometimes I don't want to fucking wake up,
When all they want to do is bring me down,
And all the things I've went through as I came up,
Are the fucking reasons why I run this town,

[Kellin Quinn and Machine Gun Kelly:]
We live on front porches and swing life away,
(It's all about fans)
We get by just fine here on minimum wage,
(I told you)
If love is a labor I'll slave 'til the end, 'til the end,
And I'll run these streets if you give me a chance,

We live on front porches and swing life away,
(All my dreamers)
We get by just fine here on minimum wage,
(Stay real)
If love is a labor I'll slave 'til the end,
(And to my love)
And I'll run these streets if you give me a chance,
(Stay here)

Swing life away,
(And what we do)
Swing life away,
(What we do)
Swing life away,
(Yeah)
Swing life away,
(And we just)
Swing life away,
(Let's swing life away)
Swing life away,
(Let's swing life away)
Swing life away,
(Let's swing life away)
Swing life away.
