Wretch 32 Forgiveness Lyrics

Last updated: 03/26/2012 02:10:17 AM

[Verse 1]
Feel like I'm slackin' with my children
Focusing on rap tryna back and shake the building
In a race with my own race, just to raise the roof
And I ain't talking ‘bout the ceiling
Here's something to believe in:
No sleep, cause you're livin' what you're dreamin'
And it's the lesson in itself
I've my son to call me dad when I miss the parents evenings
Amazed I'm still breathin';
Every other shot I feel my insides bleedin'.
Grandad, turnin' in his grave,
Cah I promised that I'll be there for my gran when she's grievin'
I used to be a man of my word;
Now, time seems to have got the best of my sentence
In that case I'll have to adjourn,
Cause the thought of an excuse is just as bad as the intention

[Hook]
Excuse me, my friend
I think I might've hit my head
Excuse me, my friend
I don't remember who I am
Cause I'm holdin' on tryna be somebody
But it won't be long before I need somebody
Forgiveness, asking for forgiveness (hey, hey, hey, hey) [x4]

[Verse 2]
Went to church to pray for a top ten
Then I win number 5, I ain't been back again
But when my jury friend phones
Like they got new rings I'll most likely attend
Poppin' out a new Benz, start to car from outside
When is this gonna end?
My mum's still livin' in the ends,
Spend jibbs on a wrist before I put her with celebs
I'm still livin' like a wretch, all I hear is f*ck f*ck, all the girls got Tourettes
And no I don't wanna bet
Even the odd birds wanna take me to the nest,
I swear I only came for the music, but the more I touch notes,
It's like the more I get stupid
It's a gift then a curse, but before I blame myself,
I'ma say I didn't choose this

[Hook]
Excuse me, my friend
I think I might've hit my head
Excuse me, my friend
I don't remember who I am
Cause I'm holdin' on tryna be somebody
But it won't be long before I need somebody
Forgiveness, asking for forgiveness (hey, hey, hey, hey) [x4]
