Текст на песента

I'm not a rapper; I'm a singer with the flow

I've got a habit for spitting

Quicker lyrics, you know

You found me ripping the writtens

Out of the pages they sit in

I never want to get bitten

'Cause plagiarism is hidden

Watch how I sit on the rhythm

Prisoner with a vision

Signs of a label,

But didn't listen

To any criticism

Thought you knew but you didn't

So perk your ears up and listen

Studio is a system

And you could say that I'm driven

And now it's on to the next saga

We drink the best lager

I never tried to win you over

Like your stepfather

I do my own thing now, and get respect after

And I'm avoiding the 'caine like it was Get Carter

For four years I never had a place to stay

But it's safe to say that it kept me grounded like a paperweight

At 16 years old, yeah I moved out of my home

I was Macy Gray I tried to say goodbye and I choked

I went from sleeping at the subway station

To sleeping with a Movie star and adding to the population

Not my imagination, I don't wanna relax

Would it hurt your reputation

If I put it on wax?

I'll take it back now...

[Chorus:]

Mmmm c'mon and take it back love,

C'mon and take it back for us

Don't you fade into the back love

No

I take it back with the rhythm and blues

With my rap pack I'll be singing the news,

Trying to act like Jack Black when I bring 'em to school

I'll make a beat with my feet by just hitting a loop,

Bringing the lyrics to prove that I can fit in these shoes,

I give you the truth through the vocal booth,

Stars burst out on the scene like an opal fruit,

They try to take aim like Beckham when he goes to shoot,

But then again that's what they're supposed to do,

And I'm supposed to be calm,

I tattooed the lyrics onto my arm,

Whispering everything that happens is from now on,

I'll be ready to start again by the end of the song,

Still they're claiming that I handled it wrong,

But then I never had an enemy, except for NME,

But I'll be selling twice as many copies as the magazines will ever be,

With only spectacles ahead of me and festival fees,

Are healthier than a Dalmatian on Pedigree,

Singing for the masses,

Rubber dinghy rapids,

I keep this rapping a habit

And keep on fashioning magic,

I'm battling for respect,

I don't know if I'll have it,

This songs from the heart,

Cover the planet

I'll take it back now

[Chorus]

I take it back now

Now I don't ever want to be perfect,

Cause I'm a singer that you

Never want to see shirtless

And I accept the fact that someone's gotta win worst-dressed,

Taking my first steps into the scene,

Giving me focus

Putting on a brave face, like Timothy Dalton

Considering a name change,

Thinking it was hopeless

Rhyming over recordings

Avoiding tradition

Cause every day some lyrics

And a melody can be written

Now absence can make your heart ache

But drinking absinthe can change your mind-state, vividly,

I need to let my liver be

And I say it again,

Living life on the edge,

With a closed hand full of friends

Is good advice from a man

Who took his life on the road with me

And I hope to see him blowing up globally

Cause that's how it's supposed to be

I'm screaming out vocally

It might seem totally impossible

Achieving life's dreams

But, but I just write schemes

I'm never having a stylist, giving me tight jeans

Madison Square Garden is where I might be

But more likely,

You'll find me in the back

Room of a dive bar with my mates

Having a pint with McDaid

Discussing records we made

And every single second knowing

That we'll never betray

The way we were raised

Remembering our background

Sat down

That's how we plan it out;

It's time to take it back now

[Chorus 2x]

[Album version stops here]

My dreams keep me awake at night

Written in rhymes, 'til I deliver the hype

Am I just living the lie

With this you must know that the number's just sold whoa

Will keep me going through the tough times, dream with me

We forget 90 per cent of it when we wake

But the other 10 per cent it never fades

Dreaming dreams, day to day goals

Stay awake loads, try to make the cut like the

Paper or razor blade, oh, never give up

And just remember just to hold out more

A couple years ago

I couldn't just control that thought

You'd find me buskin' on the street

When it was cold outdoors

And now I'm sweating on the stage of a sold out tour

Writing love songs for the sake of it

Never to make a hit

You can't fake talent and work ethic just to make it quick

I'm not a rapper I'm a singer, I just take the piss and

Most of these other guys are kids that Pulses

Little sister has to babysit, that's just the way it is

Dreams you own, just set your goals

And have the utmost faith in it; tread your own path

You'll never make it as a follower, you'll never know

Where you will go or where you will be tomorrow rha.
