"On The Ground" is a song recorded by Rosé. It is the title track of Rosé's solo debut single album -R-.

On The Ground begins with a tense guitar sound. The mysterious arrangement of instruments with the added sound as the song progresses, and Rosé’s vocals, which flow smoothly, make her attractive as a solo artist even more prominent.

The lyrics of On The Ground, involves a message saying, “I've always worked hard while aiming for a higher spot, but the most important value is within myself”, helps us remind us once again of what we are forgetting while living in modern times. I’ve always been running, looking to a higher place, but the important values that matter are within me.” The lyrics will make us realize what we are missing out on as we live in this generation, once again.

Lyrics

 Rosé 

My life's been magic seems fantastic
I used to have a hole in the wall with a mattress
It’s funny when you want it
 suddenly you have it
You find out that your gold’s just plastic

Every day, every night
I've been thinking back on you and I
Every day, every night

I worked my whole life
Just to get right, just to be like
Look at me, I'm never coming down

I worked my whole life
Just to get high, just to realize
Everything I need is on the
Everything I need is on the ground
On the ground
Everything I need is on the ground

Nah, but they don’t hear me though
(Yeah, what goes up, it must come down)
Nah, but they don’t hear me though
(You're running out of time)

My world’s been hectic, seems electric
But I been waking up with your voice in my head
And I'm tryna send a message
To let you know that every single minute I'm without you, I regret it

Every day, every night
I been thinking back on you and I
Every day, every night

I worked my whole life
Just to get right, just to be like
Look at me, I'm never coming down

I worked my whole life
Just to get high, just to realize
Everything I need is on the
Everything I need is on the ground
On the ground
Everything I need is on the ground

Nah, but they don’t hear me though
(Yeah, what goes up, it must come down)
Nah, but they don’t hear me though
(You're running out of time)

I'm way up in the clouds
And they say I've made it now
But I figured it out
Everything I need is on the ground

Just drove by your house (Just drove by your house)
So far from you now (So far from you now)
But I figured it out
Everything I need is on the
Everything I need is on the ground

On the ground
Everything I need is on the ground
Nah, but they don’t hear me though
On the ground
Nah, but they don’t hear me though
Everything I need is on the ground
