Stormzy Lay Me Bare Lyrics

One more time I’ll make it clear

This some shit I hate to share

Escape this life or pay the fare

Grab this gun and aim it there

Shoot my pain and slay my fear

Before I die, I say my prayer

Don’t worry about the mess just lay me there

This is all I got so lay me bare

Look, one more time I’ll make it clear

This some shit I hate to share

Escape this life or pay the fare

Grab this gun and aim it there

Shoot my pain and slay my fear

Before I die, I say my prayer

Don’t worry about the mess just lay me there

This is all I got so lay me bare

Lord help me please I’m breaking down

Tryna’ call my name and take my crown

Little bit of pain I’ll paint the town

When they put me in my grave don’t make a sound

Cause’ there’s still some days I find it hard

Smoke my spliff and write my bars

I know they see me climbing charts

But plaques won’t help me find my heart

Yo God, what’s good? I need you bad

Devil’s in my ear I need you back

Got scars in my soul I’ve been attacked

Even when I’m low I seem relaxed

But then year’s been mad I lost my way

They think I went ghost to drop my tape

Not knowing that I fell and lost my faith

Like Satan please no, not today

So fuck this shit this ain’t a joke

Just to get away I take a toke

I took this pain and made a boat

Lord knows how the fuck it’s staying afloat

Last year I cried too many times

Weren’t for flips and weren’t for rhymes

Weren’t for Rachel, weren’t for Kelly

Man them people saved my life

Like man’a get low sometimes, so low sometimes

Airplane mode on my phone sometimes

Sitting in my house with tears in my face

Can’t answer the door to my bro sometimes

Roaming around all alone sometimes

Don’t know sometimes

I was a young dead start

But this shit’s like Game of Thrones sometimes

One more time I’ll make it clear

This some shit I hate to share

Escape this life or pay the fare

Grab this gun and aim it there

Shoot my pain and slay my fear

Before I die, I say my prayer

Don’t worry about the mess just lay me there

This is all I got so lay me bare

Look, one more time I’ll make it clear

This some shit I hate to share

Escape this life or pay the fare

Grab this gun and aim it there

Shoot my pain and slay my fear

Before I die, I say my prayer

Don’t worry about the mess just lay me there

This is all I got so lay me bare

Like bro I can’t believe I saw my dad

Still up in the ends, still driving cabs

He said “Yo son, I need a car”

I kissed my teeth and turned my back

Like “Nigga, you ain’t seen my face for years

Nigga, you ain’t seen my face for time

And the first thing you’re asking me for, is that?

Fuck you! That’s where I draw the line”

Should’ve dashed through a rack like “Keep the change”

And fuck letting go, I’ll keep the pain

23 years I’m still the same

When you hear this I hope you feel ashamed

Cah’ we were broke like what the fuck

Mum did well to hold us up

But yet she still forgave your arse

But mumsy’s cool, I’m cold as fuck

Fuck that! I’m still not over this

Fuck that! No, I’m still not over this

Clips told me someone died in Heath

Like “Please say I don’t know the kid”

When I heard TS, I kissed my teeth

And then I broke down in disbelief

My bro TH and Yogi too

Man I’ll be damned to miss the streets

But I still got old school friends that I shoulda’ been cool with

Man that I ride for, man I went school with

Man that I love and man I kicked ball with

My phone’s there, just call it

But I guess things just got strange for me

But you all grew fast and gracefully

Left my hood and grabbed the mic

And I got me a girl that prays for me

One more time I’ll make it clear

This some shit I hate to share

Escape this life or pay the fare

Grab this gun and aim it there

Shoot my pain and slay my fear

Before I die, I say my prayer

Don’t worry about the mess just lay me there

This is all I got so lay me bare

Look, one more time I’ll make it clear

This some shit I hate to share

Escape this life or pay the fare

Grab this gun and aim it there

Shoot my pain and slay my fear

Before I die, I say my prayer

Don’t worry about the mess just lay me there

This is all I got so lay me bare
