  • (Hook)
    You want to see the best of me
    You gotta see the worst of me
    You wanna see the gift of me
    You gotta see the curse of me
    You gotta see the world I’ve seen
    You gotta see the dreams I dream
    Well, nobody sees me, no,
    The rise and fall.

    (Verse)
    You gotta see what I’ve seen,
    Be where I’ve been to achieve these dreams,
    Be a team on a UK street,
    Scarred for your life, can’t change for the night
    And the world’s getting rootless,
    You got a red eye, everybody’s on a height
    And the matters got stupid, so have I,
    All you ever do is bring me down,
    I’m living up to the name you gave me tonight,
    And I am silent, that’s why everybody wants me to live a lie
    I ain’t sure being thirty, I come from a place where the good die young
    And the bad die when is their time, they say this to the face,
    Just know that my head’s inside too well so my new name’s to the face.

    (Hook)
    You want to see the best of me
    You gotta see the worst of me
    You wanna see the gift of me
    You gotta see the curse of me
    You gotta see the world I’ve seen
    You gotta see the dreams I dream
    Well, nobody sees me, no,
    The rise and fall.

    (Verse)
    I showed you the gift, let me show you the curse,
    You get big, then vultures emerge,
    And so friends try pulling your beard
    Once again, I gotta roll in the curb
    And I try, but my life models,
    Prefer myself in many more qurels
    So I seek salvation in words,
    So many votes, a gift and a curse,
    The reason I flower and grew
    Might be the reason I feel malnourished and blue
    I felt pain in the world,
    Now I just run through the chambers of hell
    All I know is from an old man’s view,
    I’ve seen some things so amazing in this world,
    Sometimes the grass is greener,
    Sometimes is quite hard to tell.

    (Hook)
    You want to see the best of me
    You gotta see the worst of me
    You wanna see the gift of me
    You gotta see the curse of me
    You gotta see the world I’ve seen
    You gotta see the dreams I dream
    Well, nobody sees me, no,
    The rise and fall.

    (Bridge)
    Head in the sky, but my hands on the floor
    Hard, but this night, will survive through this storm
    You gotta see the world I’ve seen
    You gotta see the dreams I dream
    But nobody sees me at all, the rise and fall.
