Here Are the Lyrics to Juice WRLD's 'Legends'

Steve Jennings/FilmMagic
Juice Wrld performs at the 2019 Rolling Loud Music Festival on Day 2 at Oakland-Alameda County Coliseum on Sept. 29, 2019 in Oakland, Calif.
 

Juice WRLD posthumously returns to the Billboard Hot 100 with "Legends" at No. 29 this week (dated Dec. 21). 

The late rapper, whose real name is Jarad Anthony Higgins, died at 21 years old on Dec. 8, and the lyrics to his 2018 single morbidly detail just how young "legends" have been at the time of their death -- "What's the 27 Club?/ We ain't making it past 21."

At the time, Juice WRLD recorded the song to honor fellow deceased SoundCloud rappers XXXTentacion and Lil Peep.

Check out the somber lyrics below.

I usually don't speak on sh-- like this, but
Ain't nobody else saying sh--
Daytrip took it to ten

I usually have an answer to the question
But this time I'm gon' be quiet (this time)
Ain't nothing like the feeling of uncertainty, the eeriness of silence
This time, it was so unexpected
Last time, it was the drugs he was lacing
All legends fall in the making
Sorry truth, dying young, demon youth

What's the 27 Club?
We ain't making it past 21
I been going through paranoia
So I always gotta keep a gun
Da--, that's the world we live in now
Yeah, hold on, just hear me out
They tell me I'ma be a legend
I don't want that title now
'Cause all the legends seem to die out
What the f--- is this 'bout?

I'm tryna make it out
I'm tryna change the world
I'm tryna take her out
I'm tryna take your girl
More importantly, I'm tryna change the world
Maybe flex with some diamonds and pearls, yeah

I usually have an answer to the question
But this time I'm gon' be quiet (this time)
Ain't nothing like the feeling of uncertainty, the eeriness of silence
This time, it was so unexpected
Last time, it was the drugs he was lacing
All legends fall in the making
Sorry truth, dying young, demon youth

My mind is foggy, I'm so confused
We keep on losing our legends to
The cruel cold world, what is it coming to?
The end of the world, is it coming soon?

Yeah, ooh, ooh, oh
That hit's for you

I usually have an answer to the question
But this time I'm gon' be quiet (this time)
Ain't nothing like the feeling of uncertainty, the eeriness of silence
This time, it was so unexpected
Last time, it was the drugs he was lacing
All legends fall in the making
Sorry truth, dying young, demon youth

Daytrip took it to ten
