  • Oh written in the stars
    A million miles away
    A message to the mane
    Oh
    Seasons come and go
    But I will never change
    And I'm on my way

    Let's go
    Yeah
    You're listening now
    They say they ain't heard nothing like this in a while
    That's why they play my song on so many different dials
    'Cause I got more fuckin' hits than a disciplined child
    When they see me everybody brrap's, brraps
    Man I'm like a young gun fully black Barrack
    I cried tear drops over the massive attack
    I only make hits like I work with a racket and bat
    Look at my jacket and hat
    So damn berserk
    So down to earth
    I'm bringing gravity back
    Adopted by the major I want my family back
    People work hard just to get all their salary taxed
    Look I'm just a writer from the ghetto like Malory Blackman
    Where the hells all the sanity at, damn
    I used to be the kid that no one cared about
    That's why you have to keep screaming 'til they hear you out

    Oh written in the stars
    A million miles away
    A message to the mane
    Oh
    Seasons come and go
    But I will never change
    And I'm on my way

    Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh!
    Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh!
    Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh!
    Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh!
    Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh!
    Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh!
    Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh!
    Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh!

    Yeah, I needed a change
    When we ate we never took because we needed a change
    I needed a break
    For a sec' I even gave up believing and praying
    I even done illegal stuff and was leaded astray
    They say the money is the root to the evilest ways
    But have you ever been so hungry that it keeps you awake
    Mate, now my hunger would leave them amazed
    Great, it feels like a long time coming, fam'
    Since the day I thought of that cunning plan
    One day I had a dream I tried to chase it
    But I wasn't going nowhere, running man!
    I knew that maybe someday I would understand
    Trying to turn a tenner to a hundred grand
    Everyone's a kid that no-one cares about
    You just have to keep screaming 'til they hear you out

    Oh written in the stars
    A million miles away
    A message to the mane
    Oh
    Seasons come and go
    But I will never change
    And I'm on my way

    Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh!
    Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh!
    Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh!
    Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh!
    Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh!
    Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh!
    Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh!

    Oh seasons come and go
    But I will never change
    And I'm on my way Writer/s: CHARLIE BERNARDO, ESHRAQUE MUGHAL, PATRICK OKOGWU, TINIE TEMPAH, ERIC TURNER
