Tove Lo - Not on Drugs

Shiny, have you seen my world in new colours?
How you fire from a rocket in the universe?
I'm up on the sky and the dream's so blue
I live in the sky
You come live here too
I'm queen of the clouds
Make my wish come true
I sing to the night
Let me sing to you

Oh, baby, listen please
I'm not on drugs
I'm not on drugs
I'm just in love

Baby don't you see
I'm not on drugs
I'm not on drugs
I'm just in love
You're high enough for me

Light brighter, pick the biggest stars of mine
And I'm trip, trip, tripping in my empire state of mine

I'm up on the sky and the dream's so blue
I live in the sky
You come live here too
I'm queen of the clouds
Make my wish come true
I sing to the night
Let me sing to you

Oh, baby, listen please
I'm not on drugs
I'm not on drugs
I'm just in love

Baby don't you see
I'm not on drugs
I'm not on drugs
I'm just in love
You're high enough for me

You're high enough for me
Baby, listen please
I'm not on drugs
I'm not on drugs
I'm just in love

Baby don't you see
I'm not on drugs
I'm not on drugs
I'm just in love
You're high enough for me
You're high enough for me

"Not On Drugs" is the second single released off of "Queen of the Clouds". She explains that it is the first time someone falls in love. which is why the song takes a direct contrast to her situation in “Habits (Stay High)”. She doesn’t have to indulge in drugs to keep her feeling alive, instead his love does that for her. In an interview with Untitled Magazine, Tove explained: "“Not on Drugs“ obviously is a funny follow-up after “Habits (Stay High)“. It’s one of the more euphoric songs, which I’m happy I can write as well. It’s not all black and dark. But it’s more of where I compare the feeling of having the ultimate high to being in love, which I think are very similar. I wrote that with the same guy that I wrote “Idle Minds“ and “Got Love“ with, [which are] also on the album. He’s a Swedish guy and is the most artistic person I’ve ever met. He’s very hard to work with, but he’s amazing, so it’s worth it, haha. Even though he takes a while to get his tone down." She also said in an interview with MTV UK, according to Songfacts: "It’s about the happy kind of love where you feel like there’s nothing that can get you higher than the person you’re with and have these feelings for."
