"I Took A Pill In Ibiza" is a song by American singer-songwriter Mike Posner. The song which is originally acoustic guitar-based with Posner's vocal only appeared on his album At Night, Alone. Later on 4 July 2015, the talented Norwegian duo SeeB remixed the song and made it into a more club anthem song. In addition, the remixed song was released as a single from Posner's second EP, "The Truth" and also the lead single from his second album, "At Night, Alone."

"It's just about being honest. I listen to a lot of stuff that's out there, some of which I wrote, and I'm like, 'Where's the honesty?'. So that's what I want to get to in my music now." -Mike Posner during Billboard interview.

Posner finds it funny that "I Took A Pill In Ibiza" is becoming more and more famous despite the fact that it was a song about struggling with the afterglow of fame. Furthermore, Poser was also surprised that his "I Took A Pill In Ibiza" song with sad and depressed lyrics can be converted into a soundtrack that clubs and bars will use. What do you think of the song? Let me know in the comments below. Till then, au revoir!




I Took A Pill In Ibiza lyrics

I took a pill in Ibiza
To show Avicii I was cool
And when I finally got sober
felt 10 years older
But fuck it, it was something to do
I'm living out in L. A
I drive a sports car just to prove
I'm a real big baller
cause I made a million dollars
And I spend it on girls and shoes

But you don't wanna be high like me
Never really knowing why like me
You don't ever wanna step off
that roller coaster and be all alone
You don't wanna ride the bus like this
Never knowing who to trust like this
You don't wanna be stuck up on that stage singing
Stuck up on that stage singing
All I know are sad songs, sad songs
Darling, all I know are sad songs, sad songs

I'm just a singer who already blew his shot
I get along with old timers
Cause my name's a reminder
of a pop song people forgot
And I can't keep a girl, no
Cause as soon as the sun comes up
I cut 'em all loose and work's my excuse
But the truth is I can't open up

But you don't wanna be high like me
Never really knowing why like me
You don't ever wanna step off
that roller coaster and be all alone
You don't wanna ride the bus like this
Never knowing who to trust like this
You don't wanna be stuck up on that stage singing
Stuck up on that stage singing
All I know are sad songs, sad songs
Darling, all I know are sad songs, sad songs

I took a plane to my hometown
I brought my pride and my guitar
All my friends are all gone
but there's manicured lawns
And the people still think I'm a star
I walked around downtown
I met some fans on Lafayette
They said "Tell us how to make it
'cause we're getting real impatient"
So I looked 'em in the eye and said

You don't wanna be high like me
Never really knowing why like me
You don't ever wanna step off
that roller coaster and be all alone
You don't wanna ride the bus like this
Never knowing who to trust like this
You don't wanna be stuck up on that stage singing
Stuck up on that stage singing
All I know are sad songs, sad songs
Darling, all I know are sad songs, sad songs
