Stormzy Superheroes Lyrics

Don’t die on me

I said

Young black king, don’t die on me

You’re my brother, you’re my keeper

I need you to keep an eye on me

And no more fighting on the streets

Walking ’round with all this pride on me

Shit, shit’s tough for us already

Know that you can still rely on me

Please, just stay alive for me

And my young black queens, don’t quit now (Yeah)

You’re the only ones that got us

I could never let my sis down

You been too strong, for too long

Yet, still you never sit down, wow

That’s the power of your loving

And it’s worthy of a king’s crown

And still you never let your kings down

Even though most times, we don’t deserve it

The picture isn’t pretty, but it’s perfect

Tedious pressures, so then I curve it

Serena or Venus, the way I serve it

I’m Mallory Blackman, the way I sell books

I jump on the stage, and then the world looks

All that banging’ on my door, had my girl shook

Now sorry officer, I only sell hooks

Leave me alone

Every little L I took, I hold it close to home

Live and you learn, they’ll always hate me for my tone

For the shade of my skin

And not the courage of my bones

Now, I’m misunderstood

Now, I’m feeling like Nina Simone

The way I toured the world

Would have thought that I was Sims

See her on stage, I know that women can be kings

I know that’s fucked, they’re overlooking what you bring

I know shit’s all good, but it’s just the little things

Black queen you’re immaculate

It’s coming at the world

They ain’t ready for your magic yet

And that was never your fault

Man, I guess they couldn’t hack it, yeah

World domination, and you ain’t even

Taken off your jacket yet

So effortlessly fabulous

And my young black kings I hope It pays off

Go and show ’em what you’re made of

Trying to scare us with some things

That we are no longer afraid of

Men are superheroes, let me see you take off

I pray you never take your cape off

Even though most times, we don’t fly straight

If I trust you bro, I promise we gon’ die great

Our burdens are heavy, but we ain’t light weights

Our parents were legends, they had to migrate

So that’s a reason not to sit around and chat shit

I’m from the place where Michael Dapaah made a smash hit

Where you can be a rapper, if rap you sick

They’re screaming, “What a flippin’ time to be a black Brit!”

We so alive, whole world gone out they’re minds

But no we ride, tried to push us all to the side

We know our rights

Now we get the whole of the pie, then go inside

When you see that Merky flag in the sky

Just know it’s I

The way I topped the charts

Who would’ve thought that I was Dave

I am young, black, beautiful and brave

Know that it’s fucked, they’re overlooking what we gave

I know shits all good, so we pray for better days

Pray they better than before (Better than before)

Young black king, you are everything and more (You are everything and more)

I know one song’s not enough to settle scores (Not enough to settle scores)

But from the bottom of my heart

Man, I hope you’re getting yours (Getting yours)

Man, I hope you’re getting yours (Getting yours)

Young black queen, get your shine on

All I see is innovators, and a bag of icons

You can go and ask the whole world

Where they got they style from?

That’s you, that’s us, God’s time

And he never gets the time wrong

I guess we just some ticking time bombs

We soon blow, (Boom)

I can make world come true

All my dreams will see me through

And if that won’t get me down

My dreams will turn things all around

With a smile upon my face

I can see a better place

Doesn’t matter what may come my way

Believe me now, I will win some day
