Album: Not Waving, But Drowning (2019)

  • It's weird, man, I feel like I can't play, It's weird, man
    Every now and then like, I'm like playing and it's like, "what?"
    I'm, I'm actually

    I ain't seen you for a minute, wonder what for
    Only really chilling when we're on tour
    Even then there's something different I feel unsure
    If you look at me and still believe I should've done more
    Before your brothers on the top floor
    Or before another show is just a dumb chore
    We'd lay awake at yours dreaming of an encore
    And laugh at all the things that we would say when we won awards
    Course money was the source
    I've never known nothing like the force
    To rip a bond apart, shred it out its course
    Now two best friends who shared the torch barely talk
    And if we do it's mostly money not remorse
    And yo, I know there's nothing funny 'bout divorce
    But if this shit has really run its course
    I want you to know that all of mine's all of yours
    Uh, all of yours

    Mh, still remember your mum buying me the flat pack mattress
    Sleeping on your floor

    It's supposed to be Ben and Krispy
    And anywhere I went I said I'd take you with me
    Tour around the world and give a fuck, you'd miss me
    Get another city, yo, I cried when that sentence hit me
    Ben and Krispy, 'til the feet stop
    Reminisce like CL and Pete Rock
    Or Blue and Exile 'cause every time the beat drop
    I start to tell a story and you follow with the beat box
    Tell 'em, get up on your feet like your seat's hot
    Common and Dilla started spinning from the T tops
    But Rebel B was all I need and all I see
    Drop the rhythm on repeat and I would spit it 'til the beat stopped
    But the beat stopped
    So now what?
    Yo, I can't wait another hour boss
    Give a fuck about the money or the e-track
    I Just Want My G Back, man
    Trust, uh
    I just want my G back

    Ay listen, I got a lot more to say
    But I reckon I leave this next bit blank
    So you wanna write something, you can write something
    I love you, G Writer/s: Benjamin Coyle-Larner, Kwesi Sey
