Lucid Dreams

Juice WRLD

Lucid Dreams Lyrics

[Intro]
Enviyon on the mix
No, no, no, no
No-no, no, no, no
No, no, no, no, no
No, no, no, no

[Chorus]
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
Listenin' 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
Listenin' to my heart instead of my head

You found another one, but I am the better one
I won't let you forget me

[Verse]
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

[Bridge]
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 in your drastic ways)

(Who knew evil girls had the prettiest face?)

[Chorus]
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
Listenin' 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
Listenin' to my heart instead of my head

You found another one, but I am the better one
I won't let you forget me

[Outro]
Leave this shit in the past, but I wanted 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...
...instead of my head

You found another...
...better one
I won't let you forget me

About “Lucid Dreams”

On “Lucid Dreams,” Juice WRLD explores the mental anguish someone feels after experiencing a break-up.

Lucid dreaming refers to a state of conscious where a person is aware they are dreaming. With enough experience, a dreamer can slowly begin to control the contents of their dreams. Juice uses the idea of controlling a lucid dream as an analogy for his mental state; to avoid the pain of seeing his ex-lover in his dreams, Juice seeks to replace them—for good.

Frequent Juice WRLD collaborator, Nick Mira handled the production of “Lucid Dreams,” with assistance from Sidepce. The melody of this song also samples the intro of Sting’s “Shape Of My Heart.”

During the week ending October 6, 2018, the track peaked at number 2 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart.

  • What have the artists said about the song?

    On a Sep 20, 2017 interview with ElevatorMag, Juice WRLD said:

    Yeah. My producer Nick Mira used a sample from the band Sting, and I was like “Wow, I gotta really take off on this.” Most of my music is from real-life experiences, so the song was bittersweet. I was going through some hard shit and figured why not make some music about it.

  • How did this song become so popular?

    The song became popular/gained traction when the video for “All Girls Are the Same” was released on Cole Bennet’s Youtube Channel. Check out the video Genius did:

  • What inspired this song?

    Juice WRLD:

    Since I didn’t really pre-plan a lot of stuff, it was the beat, ‘cause I think that’s kind of what draws certain vibes out, the way the beat sounds. If somebody plays a sad beat, I feel like their more likely to make a sad song. If somebody plays a beat that’s lit, their more likely to make something that’s more fun and catchy.

  • What was the writing process like?

    Juice WRLD:

    The day I wrote Lucid Dreams, it was an ordinary day, just regular routine. I would just sit in my family room and play beats on the stereo, just write to them, so yeah, nothing out of the ordinary. I don’t write anymore, I freestyle a lot of stuff, but in a day, I could probably sit down and write about six or seven songs. When I go to the studio all night, I could, if I’m putting the work in, I could freestyle like six or seven songs a night.

    I had no idea that it would be a song that blew up. There were certain songs that I wrote, that I was like, “Okay, this one’s gonna maybe be it, or this one maybe be it”, but that was one of the ones that I just–not downplaying it, I still thought it was a good song, ‘cause I put it out you know–but I didn’t think it was gonna be “it”.

  • How did you link up with Nick Mira on the track?

    Juice WRLD:

    Originally I was only in contact with Sidepiece, he’s another producer assigned to their label, and he plugged me with Nick Mira and then Nick Mira was just sending me beats. It wasn’t even on the like, “Oh, yeah, this is gonna be hard, listen to this, you gotta make a song to this”, it was just like, another beat he sent in a file with 20 other ones. It was just random.

  • What do you want people to take away from the song?

    Juice WRLD:

    A few different things actually, I mean, people that have gone through sleep paralysis kind of would understand the context of “Lucid Dream” more than others, but the message I want people to know is, just be aware of your feelings. Really, just be aware of your feelings, and I think that’s pretty much what it did for people, in a way.
