Stormzy One Second Lyrics

If you give me just one second of your time

I could tell you stories ’bout my life

I’ve seen hope and I’ve seen struggle through these eyes

So give me just one second of your time

Yo

One second to let it breathe

Just a second, a second is all I need

When you’re questioning everything you believed

And you’re fighting with the devil in your dreams

One second just let me be

Let it pour, let it rain, let it bleed

Heavy is the head but the pressure makes you heave

So you bill it cah the spirit of depression never sleeps in

I am not the poster boy for mental health

I need peace of mind, I need to centre self

The cover of the NME that shit made me recent myself

There’s people tryna spread the word people that pretend to help but

How am I complaining when I’m blessed?

I get this guilty feeling on the days I’m at my best

When all these demons that I carry get to messing with my head

So could you give me just a second just to get it off my chest please?

If you give me just one second of your time

I could tell you stories ’bout my life

I’ve seen hope and I’ve seen struggle through these eyes

So give me just one second of your time

One second to recollect

Just a second, a second is all I get

I can’t tell where I’m heading, I’m out of breath

All these early premonitions of my death

But I knew he had a plan

Lord knows I’ma do it if I can

When I take a stand they say I’m ruining my brand

But I could never give a fuck, that’s just me duty as a man

So if I go on stage at Brits and tell the PM she’s a bitch

Then that’s exactly what it is and I don’t want no bloody stripes for it

Mummy always said that if there’s a cause then I should fight for it

So yeah, I understand but I don’t think that I’m alright with it

Like yeah, cool I get, yeah, I know I said it

But there’s people fighting everyday and they don’t get the credit

But it’s cool, man, it’s just one of the stresses on my mind

To get this off my chest I’ll need a second of your time, please

If you give me just one second of your time

I could tell you stories ’bout my life

I’ve seen hope and I’ve seen struggle through these eyes

Oh, give me just one second of your time

Oh, ooh

Oh, just one second

If you give me just one second of your time

I could tell you stories ’bout my life

I’ve seen hope and I’ve seen struggle through these eyes

So give me just one second of your time

So give me just one (Cool)

Just one second

So give me just one

Just one second
