Rosé - On The Ground

English
A A

On The Ground

My life's been magic seems fantastic
I used to have a hole in the wall with a mattress
It’s funny when you want it
Suddenly you have it
You find out that your gold’s just plastic
 
Every day every night
I’ve been thinking back on you and I
Every day every night
 
I worked my whole life
Just to get right just to be like
Look at me I’m never coming down
 
I worked my whole life
Just to get high just to realize
Everything I need is on the
Everything I need is on the ground
On the ground
Everything I need is on the ground
 
Nah but they don’t hear me though (Yeah what goes up it must come down)
Nah but they don’t hear me though (You’re running out of time)
 
My world’s been hectic seems electric
But I’ve been waking up with your voice in my head
And I’m trying to send a message
And let you know that every single minute I’m without you I regret it
 
Every day every night I
’ve been thinking back on you and I
Every day every night
 
I worked my whole life
Just to get right just to be like
Look at me I’m never coming down
 
I worked my whole life
Just to get high just to realize
Everything I need is on the
Everything I need is on the ground
On the ground
Everything I need is on the ground
 
Nah but they don’t hear me though (Yeah what goes up it must come down)
Nah but they don’t hear me though (You’re running out of time)
 
I’m way up in the clouds
And they say I’ve made it now
But I figured it out
Everything I need is on the ground
 
Just drove by your house
So far from you now
But I figured it out
Everything I need is on the
Everything I need is on the ground
 
On the ground
Everything I need is on the ground
Nah but they don’t hear me though
On the ground
Nah but they don’t hear me though
Everything I need is on the ground
 
  • It’s funny when you want it Suddenly you have it ...:

    In this sense, Rosé singing the lyrics “gold’s just plastic” could refer to how something so affluent and beautiful on the exterior to the public, is in fact fake on the inside, with many artists feeling like they must live “staged” lives.

    The promise of becoming a star as a trainee is a goal in which lots of young aspiring Korean artists must work towards everyday, yet once they achieve this status in the limelight and become famous, they often question whether this is the life that they can commit to for the rest of their career

  • Nah but they don’t hear me though (Yeah what goes ...:

    In the post-chorus, Rosé sings from two perspectives: herself, and someone who hates her.

    Therefore, Rosé makes it clear that she knows what others say about her and her fellow bandmates, but ultimately dismisses them, due to their lack of knowledge of who she truly is as a person; from working tirelessly to push herself as an artist.

    Here, Rosé acknowledges her current status, and the acknowledgements and compliments she gets from others, whilst also remaining aware of the fact that before her fame, she already had everything she ever needed, and is content with her life.

Thanks!
