TIME
Wretch 32


Time won’t be on your side like I am, like I am
Time won’t be on your side like I am, like I am

Tears run from my eyes, dozen times I don’t wanna die
And they say that’s just life, if that’s just life, can I skip the line coz
I just need more time, need more time
Ain’t got a girlfriend yet, ain’t won a grammy yet
And my son ain’t a daddy yet and my mum ain’t married yet
And I ain’t patched up with my cuz but characters make a family mess
Some feelings just don’t go, feelings you should not hold
And Jesus heal us both, when in need, when in need yeah
I love you is what you know, when in need, when in need yeah
And I ain't got a belly yet, And I ain’t done Wembley yet
And I ain’t sat down with my baby mum and made it up and told her to be my friend
And I ain't seen my dad with my mum in years
And I ain’t gave my grandma a hug in years
And I ain’t seen my sis in weeks
And I ain’t seen my son in days, got me feeling like I’ve run away
Coz I’m a slave to the music but you take it and use it
Like some atheist Judas but the hate we rebuke it
But I’m only human so I ain’t seen the heavens yet
And I ain't seen my bredrin yet
All he left was a super SNES, our last game was a sudden death
Then he upped and left, if I would I was clutching breath
I can’t breath, Eric Garner-esque
You ever felt that lump in your throat
Ever felt that touch in your soul
Today I saw a dead body, uncle left his son lonely
Someone’s gotta console me, coz my papa just won't preach
I've taken L's and won trophies, but never seen my mama so weak
She tried to hold and tell him don’t leave
I had to tell her “let him go sleep”
Coz he’s just tired now, he’s just lying down
He ain’t die now, he’s just flying now (eh)
I tell you something that he told me:
Never listen to the OG's
When you’re special in your own league,
you’ll be following your own lead

If this is something that you know,
This is something that you show yeah
This is something that he wrote
This is something that is gold yeah

Seen your life flash before ya, will make you get life insurance
Ever walked into the morgues then ever seen different corpses
Thinking one day they was walking, next day they’re with the horsemen
Tryna gallop to the lord yes, praying that the gates would open
Forgive me for my sins, look after all my kids
They didn’t deserve this, I had more to give
You took me too early, I just scraped through 30
If I’m worthy, may the Lord have mercy
I know you know evil, and I didn’t do no evil (oh yeah yeah yeah)

If this is something that you know,
This is something that you show yeah
This is something that he wrote
This is something that is gold yeah

Time won’t be on your side, like I am
Time won’t be on your side, like I am
Time won’t be on your side, like I am
Time won’t be on your side, like I am
(background talking)
