Rent I Pay

Album: They Want My Soul (2014)
  • I've been losing sleep
    Just nodding sleep
    That I wish that I lowed

    Hm and I lost all my tapes
    Of back masking piece
    Just for asking peace
    That I ought to be owed

    And that's the rent I'm paying
    Just like my brother would say it

    Out amongst the stars and the stones
    Every kinda fortune gets old
    Every kinda line is gonna come back to me
    Just as I go

    But that's the rent I pay
    Like my brother say it
    That's the rent I pay
    Rent I pay
    Like my brother say it
    That's the rent I pay

    Ooh lala
    Ooh lala
    Ooh lala
    Ooh lala
    Ooh lala
    Ooh lala
    Ooh lala
    Ooh lala

    I've been losing sleep
    And I'm nodding sleep
    That I wish that I lowed

    Hm and I lost all my tapes
    Of back masking piece
    Just for asking peace
    That I ought to be owed

    And that's the rent I pay
    Like my brother say it
    That's the rent I pay

    Ah, rent I pay
    Like my brother say
    That's the rent I pay

    Everybody knows just where you've been going
    Everybody knows the faces you've been showing
    And if that's your answer no I ain't your dancer
    And if that's your answer no I ain't your dancer Writer/s: BRITT DANIEL
