White Ferrari Lyrics – Frank Ocean

White Ferrari – Bad luck to talk on these rides
Mind on the road, your dilated eyes
Watch the clouds float, white Ferrari
Had a good time
(Sweet 16, how was I supposed to know anything?
I let you out at Central

I didn’t care to state the plain
Kept my mouth closed
We’re both so familiar
White Ferrari, good times

Stick by me, close by me
You were fine
You were fine here
That’s just a slow body
You left when I forgot to speak
So I text to speech, lesser speeds
Texas speed, yes
Basic takes its toll on me,
Eventually, eventually, yes
Ah, on me eventually, eventually, yes

I care for you still and I will forever
That was my part of the deal, honest
We got so familiar
Spending each day of the year, White Ferrari
Good times
In this life, life
In this life, life

One too many years
Some tattooed eyelids on a facelift
Mind over matter is magic
I do magic
If you think about it it’ll be over in no time
And that’s life

I’m sure we’re taller in another dimension
You say we’re small and not worth the mention
You’re tired of movin’, your body’s achin’
We could vacay, there’s places to go
Clearly this isn’t all that there is
Can’t take what’s been given
But we’re so okay here, we’re doing fine

Primal and naked
You dream of walls that hold us imprisoned
It’s just a skull, least that’s what they call it
And we’re free to roam

About Frank Ocean

In the early 2010s, Frank Ocean was one of the more intriguing figures in contemporary music. With a progressive approach, he has in spite of his apparent offhand manner and imaginatively detailed narratives stayed true to the R&B genre yet pushed it forward with his seemingly offhand yet imaginatively detailed literary works in which he has alternated between longing romanticism and easygoing braggartism. First established as a poet, writer, and Odd Future affiliate, Ocean made his solo debut with the single “Novacane” (2011), an ode to a fling that could be read in part as a criticism of commercial radio, yet, despite its criticism, has found a home on mainstream urban playlists and gone platinum. Channel Orange (2012), his first proper album as a recording artist, nearly topped the Billboard 200 and made him a Grammy award winner despite further strained relationships with the music industry machinery. The success of Blonde (2016) proves that Ocean’s commercial clout was greater than ever after he left the major label system, which was demonstrated by the album’s chart-topping success. Since then, his recordings have only amounted to an album’s worth of singles that have reached platinum status including “Chanel,” a platinum album in 2017, and “Dear April” and “Cayendo,” two singles released at the same time.

He was born Christopher Edwin Breaux in Long Beach, California, but moved with his family to New Orleans, Louisiana, when he was five years old. Just after moving into his University of New Orleans dorm, the aspiring singer and songwriter were hit by Hurricane Katrina. As soon as Ocean found out that his future was under water, he resigned from his academic career and moved to Los Angeles for a personal chance at music. A friend’s home studio helped him record some demos, which he sold around town, and was able to work with Justin Bieber, John Legend, and Brandy. During the course of late 2009, Ocean signed a solo artist deal with Def Jam with the help of Christopher “Tricky” Stewart, a fellow songwriter and producer who helped convince him to sign a solo artist deal. Around this time, Ocean also began writing for Odd Future and appearing on their mixtapes while being a guest.

When Odd Future was breaking out in February 2011, Ocean released his Nostalgia, Ultra mixtape via his Tumblr blog. A few months later, he also appeared on Tyler, the Creator’s Goblin (“She,” “Window”), Beyonc√©’s 4 (“I Miss You”), Jay-Z and Kanye West’s Watch the Throne (“No Church in the Wild,” “Made in America”), and Beyonce’s 4 (“I Can’t Reach You”). There was a plan available at Def Jam to release the EP-length version of Nostalgia, Lite – a mixtape-length version of the mixtape – but it was scrapped. Nevertheless, the songs “Novacane” (produced by Stewart) and “Swim Good” (MIDI Mafia) were released as singles with accompanying videos. As a result of its success and platinum status, the former reached number 17 on Billboard’s Hot R&B/Hip-Hop chart. In the end, the latter reached a peak of number 70 on the charts. It was widely considered to be one of 2011’s best releases by several publications by the time the year came to an end.
