Lyrics: Dream & PmBata – Roadtrip

DOWNLOAD MP3

“Roadtrip” is the debut single by breakout YouTuber and content creator Dream. The song features American rapper and singer, PmBata, who assisted heavily in the songwriting process.

The song is largely about reminiscing of past experiences with someone each singer cared deeply for. These thoughts are brought-upon by the sights, feelings, and associations seen in their current life.

Dream later did a Q&A on his Twitter, where he explained the meaning of lyrics from his part of the song. He also made a point to discuss how his life has changed since he was eighteen.

The song was first teased by Dream on his main Twitter in a since-deleted tweet. Soon after, Dream released a snippet of his part of the song on his private Twitter, while PmBata released small video snippets of the song in now-deleted Instagram and Twitter posts.

On the morning of the song’s announcement, Dream released the official cover of the song on his private Twitter. This cover was commissioned by acaicamc.

[Intro]
(Secure the bag, know what I’m sayin’? Banrisk on the beat)
(Ayo, Perish, this **** hot, boy)

[Verse 1: Dream]
People change like the tides in the ocean
At least I think, or am I dead wrong?
Foot on the brake at the light, I don’t notice
I sit and wait until the next song

[Pre-Chorus: Dream]
Twenty hours in an old van
Up the east coast, through the cold wind
Drove twenty hours by the ocean
Up the east coast, what a roadtrip

[Chorus: Dream]
Now that interstate is paved with memories
Of a past life I lived when I was eighteen
And evеry winter, I think back to what we used to bе
In that past life we lived at eighteen

[Post-Chorus: Dream]
Oh, oh, oh
Woah, woah, woah
Oh, oh, oh
Woah, woah, woah

[Verse 2: PmBata]
Uh, I reminisce about a past life
Things change, I get it ’cause nothing lasts, right?
Yeah, and I was thinkin’ ’bout her last night
Scrollin’ through our memories, debatin’ ’bout our last times
Ayy, for a minute we was cool
Then we flew just a little too close to the sun
Now we finished, now we through
Guess we knew one day we would have to grow up

[Pre-Chorus: PmBata]
Twenty hours in an old Ford
‘Cross the Midwest, thinking, “What for?”
Drove twenty hours, but it’s hopeless
‘Cross the Midwest, what a roadtrip

[Chorus: Dream]
Now that interstate is paved with memories
Of a past life I lived when I was eighteen
And every winter, I think back to what we used to be
In that past life we lived at eighteen
