Stormzy Don’t Cry For Me Lyrics

[Stormzy:]

See I love my hood, but the hood shit bugs me

Cuh’ man ah put the chrome to my mum then they see me and spud me

And plus I got childhood friends that are schemin’ to rush me

So if I just pack my bags and I leave this fuckery

Look, nobody judge me

Now I’m just picturing [?] all dressed in white

On the steps with Christ

Tryna tell my young Gs to relax and invest in life

They invest in knives

Man I was in my history class when my bredrin died

So vexed that I cried

But I come from a place where mandem can’t let shit slide

So we rest in pride

And it kills us slow

But bro I don’t need all that

‘Cause the place where I live is the place I will die but I already preed all that

Can’t chat about pain, just look at my veins

Look brudda, I bleed all that

Damn, I just want all my people back

Yo

[Raleigh Ritchie:]

In case you think I’ve changed and I’m different

I’m not keeping you at a distance

So have a thought for me, yeah

Hold down this thought for me

Remember the time before things changed? Back in the day

Everything can stay the same

Remember I came? Remember my name?

Remember my face?

I don’t wanna fade away

Don’t cry for me

Don’t cry for me

Oh no

No, no

Don’t cry for me

Don’t cry for me

Don’t cry for me

[Stormzy:]

Yo

Heart on my sleeve, let me open up

[?] on the block all posted up

Me and them boy don’t mix but I’ll post it up

And it ain’t no family pic but it’s close enough

And look man, I still reminisce when I’m holdin’ up

I think about the past sometimes and I sober up

‘Cause if that boy looks back, it’ll hold him up

Man are out here beefin’ like we ain’t broke enough

Swear these bruddas ain’t woken up

Like what have I done to deserve this life?

I got brothers in the pen that will never see again

Got my brothers dem servin’ life

And I know that you think that it serves ’em right

But I come from a place where you burn or die

Or [?]

So don’t blame us when we turn to the dirt, we tried

I just pray we fly, yo

[Raleigh Ritchie:]

In case you think I’ve changed and I’m different

I’m not keeping you at a distance

So have a thought for me, yeah

Hold down thought for me

Remember the time before things changed? Back in the day

Everything can stay the same

Remember I came? Remember my name?

Remember my face?

I don’t wanna fade away

Don’t cry for me

Just take a shot for me

Don’t cry for me, yeah, yeah, yeah

Don’t cry, oh no

Don’t cry for me, no
