Kanye West - Welcome To Heartbreak

Verse 1

My friend showed me pictures of his kids,
And all I could show him were pictures of my cribs.
He said his daughter got a brand-new report card,
And all I got was a brand-new sportscar.

Corus

And my head keeps spinning,
Can't stop having these visions,
I gotta keep with it.
2x

Verse 2

Dad cracked a joke, alle the kids laughed,
But I couldn't here him all the way in first-class.
Chased the good-life, all my life long,
Look back on my life, all my life gone,
Where did I go wrong?

Corus

And my head keeps spinning,
Can't stop having these visions,
I gotta keep with it.
2x

Bridge

I've seen it, I've seen it before.
I've seen it, I've seen it before.
I've seen it, I've seen it before.
I've seen it, I've seen it before.

Verse 3

My god said she's getting married by the lake,
But I couldn't figure out who I'd wanna take.
Bad enough that I showed up late,
I had to leave before they even cut the cake.
Welcome to heartbreak.

Corus

And my head keeps spinning,
Can't stop having these visions,
I gotta keep with it.
2x
And I can- and I can't stop.
No, no, I can't stop.
No, no, no, no I can't stop.
No, no, no, no I can't stop.

I can't stop.
Can't stop.
Can't stop.

No, no, no, no.
No, no, no, no.

No, no, no, no.
I can't stop.

...spinning,
Can't stop having these visions,
I gotta keep with it.

In “Welcome to Heartbreak,” Kanye describes how, despite all the money and fame he has accumulated through his career, or rather because of them, he finds himself trapped and removed from what he perceives as the right way to live one’s life, the “good life”. He is alienated from his friends and family who are starting families and getting married because he is too busy with work, and has to make up for the lack of important people in his life by buying things. Features backing vocals from Kid Cudi and Jeff Bhasker. Produced by Kanye West, Jeff Bhasker, and Plain Pat.
