Lyrics for High On Life (feat. Bonn) by Martin Garrix:

Verse 1
Killed the demons of my mind
Ever since you came around
We're a river, running wild
How could I have been so blind?

Pre-Chorus
I just live a fast life
Forget about the past time
I numb out to escape my feels
And friendships only pass by
Show up, gone, like strobe lights
But with you, I feel something real

Chorus
And I'd walk a million miles, just to see you smile
'Til the day I die
Oh, I need you by my side, we get high on life
'Til the day we die

Post-Chorus
High on life 'til the day we die
High on life 'til the day we die
High on life 'til the day we die

Pre-Drop
And I'd walk a million miles, just to see you smile
'Til the day I die

Drop
High on life 'til the day we die

Verse 2
Through my fingers, out of sight
How could I have let you go?
Cutting corners, turning stones
But I can only see your ghost

Pre-Chorus
I just live a fast life
Forget about the past time
I numb out to escape my feels
And friendships only pass by
Show up, gone, like strobe lights
But with you, I feel something real

Chorus
And I'd walk a million miles, just to see you smile
'Til the day I die
Oh, I need you by my side, we get high on life
'Til the day we die

Post Chorus
High on life 'til the day we die

Pre-Drop
Oh, I need you by my side, we get high on life
'Til the day we die

Drop
High on life 'til the day we die

Outro
And I'd walk a million miles, just to see you smile
'Til the day I die
Oh, I need you by my side, we get high on life
'Til the day we die

Song Facts

“High On Life” tells a story of living the fast life with either a friend or a lover, though the lyrics leave this open to interpretation.

First publicly unveiled at his last Tomorrowland 2018 set for the festival’s second weekend and released shortly thereafter, the song was first announced in an Instagram post four days prior to the song’s release.

A return to form for Garrix after a series of more pop-influenced hits such as “Ocean” and “So Far Away,” “High On Life” features progressive house beats over soaring vocals from BONN.

It’s the first contribution by the Swedish composer Kristoffer Fogelmark as BONN, for he previously donated his talent under his real name. At the time of this song’s release, Fogelmark is best known for his vocals on “More Than You Know.”
