K Koke feat. Maverick Sabre – Turn Back Lyrics

[Chorus - Maverick Sabre]

I’ve been living this daily
With no peace
No daydreams to save me
Get high ’cause I want to survive
Wish I could turn back the hands of time
Living this daily
With no peace
No daydreams to save me
Get high ’cause I want to survive
Wish I could turn back the hands of time

[Verse 1 - K Koke]

Born May 1985
Ten months later, my lickle bro arrived
Raised in the place where it’s do to survive
Our mummy shot food to put honey in our hives
I can see the hunger in her eyes
I could see that something wasn’t right
She taught me how to wrap and shot my first ticket
She told me watch my back and be smart with it
And I wish that I could take you there
To a place that my brain takes me every day
I can smile but it still won’t take the pain away
I can try but remain in this lonely place
From a child I’ve been raised in the soldier way
Mummy didn’t rap, she called us the Crays
No joke she showed us the ways

[Chorus - Maverick Sabre]

I’ve been living this daily
With no peace
No daydreams to save me
Get high ’cause I want to survive
Wish I could turn back the hands of time
Living this daily
With no peace
No daydreams to save me
Get high ’cause I want to survive
Wish I could turn back the hands of time

[Verse 2 - K Koke]

Mummy couldn’t cope so she turned to drugs
My aunty Tina gave us hope, she was there for us
I was raised on the roads where it’s rare to trust
And my heart’s been broke, now I’m scared to love
And I might seem closed until I open up
Feel the weight of the struggle I been holding up
Been betrayed by a cuddle and a heartless hug
I drink pain from a bottle ’til my heart feels numb
‘Cause I came from the bottom of this bottle of rum
Ain’t changed from a young’n, I been stuck in the slums
Grey days up in London, ain’t no summer for us
They try’na take Adie but my brother in ‘cuffs
And I just came home, this ain’t nothing to us
Like the court don’t know how a sufferer does
This was poor home grown but mum’s love was enough
So I wanna give her more than she’s given to us

[Chorus - Maverick Sabre]

I’ve been living this daily
With no peace
No daydreams to save me
Get high ’cause I want to survive
Wish I could turn back the hands of time
Living this daily
With no peace
No daydreams to save me
Get high ’cause I want to survive
Wish I could turn back the hands of time

[Verse 3 - Maverick Sabre]

I don’t want to feel this
I don’t want to see this
I don’t want to hurt no more
I don’t want to be this
I don’t want to feel this
I don’t ned to fight this war
‘Cause I’m try’na be somebody
There’s nothing I feel that can cloud it
I’m try’na be somebody
Need to get on up
Need to get on up now

[Chorus - Maverick Sabre]

I’ve been living this daily
With no peace
No daydreams to save me
Get high ’cause I want to survive
Wish I could turn back the hands of time
Living this daily
With no peace
No daydreams to save me
Get high ’cause I want to survive
Wish I could turn back the hands of time
