kwasi arthur – 74 (hopeless) lyrics

Loading...

[intro]
i hope less, that doesn’t mean that i’m hopeless
i hope less cos’ i’m frustrated from protests
i’m just demonstrating, these letters start the same
i’m just re-alliterating, if you said i’m crazy that would be an understatement

[hook]
infatuated by your presence
i put you through h-ll but you still think i’ll go to heaven
i’m trying to transform for the better, just give me that leaven
i’m a boy behaving badly so i just need that detention
you feel you’ve been left alone (lone)
and your heart’s turned into stone (stone)
we don’t even speak no more cos’ you just want to stay on your throne
i’ll let this silence happen cos’ there’s things i’ve got to let go man, things about to change and that’s all i want you to know

[verse 1]
i know that i’m distant, i guess i’m people-resistant
you know i do this over and over man i’m quite consistent
and then you ask me just to stop, cos’ i know you’re quite persistent
feel to call you katy cos’ i swear down you’re on a mission
just like james i can bond, all week man i’ve been trying to stay strong, short nights but my days quite long
my thoughts are very distant in fact i don’t know where they’re from
i tried to catch your eye but, you don’t want to look at me
switched over to my iplayer cos’ it’s a casual vacancy
obviously i’m oblivious to facts, but you can’t be yourself while i’m out here trying to rap
i try to catch your attention but you don’t want to interact
but i took some of your pain it’s all in my heart, i don’t know where to start
i took the long way home but trust me i’ve never been falling
and you think it’s so easy? that would be appalling
high expectations and these standards i’m ignoring

[hook]
infatuated by your presence
i put you through h-ll but you still think i’ll go to heaven
i’m trying to transform for the better, just give me that leaven
i’m a boy behaving badly so i just need that detention
cos’ you feel you’ve been left alone (lone)
and your heart’s turned into stone (stone)
we don’t even speak no more cos’ you just want to stay on your throne
i’ll let this silence happen cos’ there’s things i’ve got to let go man, things about to change and that’s all i want you to know

[verse 2]
had to deal with things i didn’t really want to deal with
who knew my mental disposition would be such an illness
ask myself: kwasi, why the flip you scared to bear this witness?
these guys are only human, and they serve as these critics
most people won’t get this, i leave a legacy like hendrix
i’m a good kid, in a mad city so i feel like stunting like kendrick
they don’t understand my catchphrase when i say i’m not amazed, there’s some things that i would change but overall my life’s been great
no mistakes, just a couple risk-takes
and i had a couple altercations with people i felt had been fake
but honestly, none of this stuff even bothers me
forget the clothes and the money trees
shouting my name man constantly, but it’s funny man it’s comedy
flg join the monarchy, critics want to judge my policy
i got tested more than three times, i guess i am the anomaly
i know you’re angry, and i don’t blame you, they tell you i’ve changed
for years i’ve had that same news like the mobo’s
i swear down i made a breakthrough

[bridge]
i hope less but that doesn’t mean i’m hopeless
i hope less cos’ i’m frustrated from protests
i’m just re-alliterating
if you said i’m crazy that’s an understatement
yeah…

[hook]
infatuated by your presence
i put you through h-ll but you still think i’ll go to heaven
i’m trying to transform for the better, just give me that leaven
i’m a boy behaving badly so i just need that detention
cos’ you feel you’ve been left alone (lone)
and your heart’s turned into stone (stone)
we don’t even speak no more cos’ you just want to stay on your throne
