  • Lay down your head
    You're not alone
    Anywhere you go, I follow
    We are the children of the sun
    That's all you need to know

    Lay down your head
    You're not alone
    Anywhere you go, I follow
    We are the children of the sun
    That's all you need to know

    Bitch I'm a moon walker like Michael, sky walk all over my rivals
    Both hands on that Bible, bitch I'm next in line for that title
    When they got had nothing to do, what was I do, who was in the studio with Taio
    We climbing high, we on the Kilimanjaro, and they're panicking
    They don't really know what's happening
    Never gotten clothes off a mannequin, we don't want no comparison
    I overdose on extravagance, we went for gold and got platinum
    I told my bro' to get an ambulance 'cause I caught a cold and went spazz on them
    How can home be where the heart is,
    When your shadow even fucking leaves you when you are in darkness
    Still get stopped by Sergeant Pepper, looking for that ziggy stardust
    After a lifetime of regret, I'm just looking for some answers

    Lay down your head
    You're not alone
    Anywhere you go, I follow
    We are the children of the sun
    That's all you need to know

    Lay down your head
    You're not alone
    Anywhere you go, I follow
    We are the children of the sun
    That's all you need to know

    I had opportunity in my window, wise words in my kindle
    Disturbing London, we here to ball, your team stuck in limbo
    Like Freddie, Bruno and Ringo, I saw the signs and symbols
    With that top down on my yellow ride, let bitches hate on my bimbo
    I'm yards away from that milestone, international dial tone
    Put me through amaro when you Instagram with your iPhone
    From yellow bricks to them brown stones, I ring bells, I'm household
    Look at all the rappers we outsold so keep your mouth closed, yeah
    How did I become so jaded, maybe all these insecurities are making me feel naked
    Feel like Harry did in Vegas, had my privacy invaded
    That's a liberty a pity, the epitome of what fame is
    Priest up in my parish, keep on putting me in their prayers
    Swear I'd never sell my soul, my pride and dignity is too major, yeah
    We rarely ever get those second chances, after a lifetime of regret
    I'm just looking for some answers, yeah

    Lay down your head
    You're not alone
    Anywhere you go, I follow
    We are the children of the sun
    That's all you need to know

    Lay down your head
    You're not alone
    Anywhere you go, I follow
    We are the children of the sun
    That's all you need to know

    Looking for a light that can outshine the sun
    I know one day our time will come
    Bought a camera to capture these cinematic nights
    Still don't satisfy my appetite for this lavish life
    Tell me, doctor, am I fit for all these flashing lights?
    Like Michael said, it doesn't matter if you're black or white
    We got the colors of the sun to descend above us
    All we have is each other in case you happen to wonder, let's go

    Lay down your head
    You're not alone
    Anywhere you go, I follow
    We are the children of the sun
    That's all you need to know

    Lay down your head
    You're not alone
    Anywhere you go, I follow
    We are the children of the sun
    That's all you need to know Writer/s: ESHRAQUE MUGHAL, PATRICK OKOGWU, CHARLIE BERNARDO, JOHN MARTIN, MANS VREDENBERG, MICHEL ZITRON
