  • They never have time to give you
    They're always on the run
    But you keep on working for your place in the sun
    When the lights go out in London
    Your work has just begun
    Someday you will find your place in the sun
    Find a place in the sun
    Find a place in the sun

    Back to the beginning in fact no we're winning
    Thanks to the spectacular raps that I'm scribbling
    It's 'Bachs that I'm driven in
    Plaques in my living room
    The stats match the facts man I'm back, back, back, back
    Mama look we made it out the flats we was living in
    Times I nearly thought I would collapse living in Britian
    Smiling in pictures
    Flying to fixtures
    Never in denial cos the Nile is a river
    Rappers on the sly try'na eye my elixir
    Jealousy's a crime bet your pride won't resist 'ya
    To get to where I am I cried like I was injured
    Bled like a soldier perspired like a sprinter
    Brother said T keep an eye out from them rinsers
    People that you hang with are trying to lynch ya
    Never break down
    I'll be there to lift ya
    You're perfect how you are so why they trying to fix ya

    They never have time toAnnotate give you
    They're always on the run
    But you keep on working for your place in the sun
    When the lights go out in London
    Your work has just begun
    Someday you will find your place in the sun
    Find a place in the sun
    Find a place in the sun

    Away from the pain and the sadness
    Soon the whole world is gonna understand my language
    Everybody's try'na find a method to the madness
    Wankers hating on me 'cos I did it single handed
    Whatever will be will be even if you plan it
    On the road to success but feeling like I'm stranded
    Disturbing London ho, I don't speak no other language
    Started with a goal and then I ended with a hat-trick
    Selling out arenas think it's time to do a new tour
    Pennies for the thoughts that I'm about to give you food for
    Never show emotion even on a mood board
    Sold my bandwagon then I went and bought a two door
    Dizzee made me rap and rider made me get my groove on
    I just wanna hit a billion views and do a tune Sean
    Thinking 'bout life listening to too short
    One day they'll have a statue of me in Madame Tussauds

    They never have time toAnnotate give you
    They're always on the run
    But you keep on working for your place in the sun
    When the lights go out in London
    Your work has just begun
    Someday you will find your place in the sun
    Find a place in the sun
    Find a place in the sun

    For that spot I'ma use Cruella Deville power
    Or do a Willow and Jaden and use my willpower
    Victory is the sweetest defeat is real sour
    Together we can move mountains rebuild towers
    A lot of hurt still waiting for God to heal ours
    Stand up and rebel again the real cowards

    They never have time to give you
    They're always on the run (on the run)
    But you keep on working for your place in the sun
    When the lights go out in London (Disturbing London)
    Your work has just begun (we've just begun)
    Someday you will find your place in the sun Writer/s: Eric Turner, Eshraque Ishi Mughal, Eshraque Mughal, Patrick Okogwu
