lyrics

Chorus
When I’m feeling down and out broke and so lethargic
It’s easy to mope and focus on the hardships
I give thanks there’s hope amongst the darkness
And just remember that home is where the heart its
(X2)


It’s a beautiful day got the sun on my face
And even though I’m bogged down and stuck in the race
The rays melt the grey the pain turns to nothing and fades
Give thanks for my girl and my wonderful mates
To my grandparents, dad, mum and my sister
It’s hard when I’m away you know I miss ya
Wish that I was cooking food with soul in the kitchen
Dropping knowledge round the table cos I know that ya listenin
Times are hard then they’ve never been easy
But I know we change for the better believe me
Politicians and rich folk are pathetic and greedy
But I’ve still got hope and they’ll never defeat me
I love to see the people rise with their force
Feel the buzz on streets when we fight for cause
Striving for more than crumbs and these libellous laws
Live and it’s raw the thrill when my rhymes get applause

Chorus

I’m glad that I was raised in a Council flat
Cos it gave me my perspective and I’m proud of that
Both my folks were broke but they both were great
Let me make my own choices and my own mistakes
As for VT you know I’ll rep Freddy for life
Cos he nurtured my skills and we’ve weathered incredible strife
And to my other friends even though we’re miles apart
I still feel close as ever when we vibe and spark
I guess that isn’t really so surprising
When we go back further than the whole horizon
You know that I cherish the littlest moments
Sitting over a pint reminiscing with old friends
Memory lanes well trodden like the streets of my hometown
Such a pretty city it’s a pity that it chucks and throws down
I love the feeling when Blazey plays me the dope sounds
Or we rock a show out and it makes me feel so proud

Chorus
