Phantom Regret Lyrics by The Weeknd (feat. Jim Carrey)
You’re tuned to Dawn FM
The middle of nowhere on your dial
So sit back and unpack
You may be here awhile
Now that all future plans have been postponed
And it’s time to look back on the things you thought you owned
Do you remember them well?
Were you high or just stoned?
And how many grudges did you take to your grave?
When you weren’t liked or followed, how did you behave?
Was it often a dissonant chord you were strumming?
Were you ever in tune with the song life was humming?
If pain’s living on when your body’s long gone
And your phantom regret hasn’t let it go yet
You may not have died in the way that you must
All specters are haunted by their own lack of trust
When you’re all out of time, there’s nothing but space
No hunting, no gathering
No nations, no race
And Heaven is closer than those tears on your face
When the purple rain falls
We’re all bathed in its grace
Heaven’s for those who let go of regret
And you have to wait here when you’re not all there yet
But you could be there by the end of this song
Where The Weeknd’s so good and he plays all week long
Bang a gong, get it on
And if your broken heart’s heavy when you step on the scale
You’ll be lighter than air when they pull back the veil
Consider the flowers, they don’t try to look right
They just open their petals and turn to the light
Are you listening real close?
Heaven’s not that, it’s this
It’s the depth of this moment
We don’t reach for bliss
God knows life is chaos
But He made one thing true
You gotta unwind your mind
Train your soul to align
And dance till you find that divine boogaloo
In other words
You gotta be Heaven to see Heaven
May peace be with you
