Raye ft. Stormzy – Ambition

 

 

[Verse 1: Raye]
In August, I’m staring at rain clouds
A descendant of London
I watch as people are falling like rain
Encouraged to seek other options
I don’t need other options
You either eat it or you spit it out
You’re either silent or you run your mouth
You breathe in or you breathe out
I’m so cold but the sun’s up
Like it’s winter all year, oh
So welcome you to it now
Oh, wait, that was my sound
Could you dig it up or sweat it out?
Could you give it up and sit down?
But after that, I hope you know your place
Cause you just gave me the damn crown

[Chorus: Raye]
And I’m gonna wear it proud
Watch me as I wear it now
I’mma ride this money like a wave
This money like a wave, this money like a wave

[Bridge: Raye]
Now I made it this far, but this far ain’t nothing
If we’re talking ambition, I think you should know that I don’t wanna settle for nothing
I wanna know that I got myself
I wanna ride my money like a wave
My money like a wave, my money like a wave, yeah

[Verse 2: Raye]
I want the future, I want the best view
I’d like to buy all my day ones a house too
Collie, Ben, Jodie, I got you
I’ve got a list of everything I would do
Make that dumb guy regret what he did do
Then he’ll be calling up my phone like “I miss you”
Then I’ll be like “haha, you can go now
Cause you didn’t wanna know when I told you
I’m gonna make something of my life”
Believe that, yeah babe
I’ve got God, he is on my side
And I’m a child of ’97 so I plan to be on time
And I’m ahead of this game
Yes, I were meant for this life, oh

[Chorus: Raye]
And I’m gonna wear it proud
Watch me as I wear it now
I’mma ride this money like a wave
This money like a wave, this money like a wave

[Verse 3: Stormzy]
You know I only phone back
If I know that it’s the money calling
Tell ’em bitches “do not phone back
I am in the studio recording”
Mummy, listen when I’m talking
Mummy, listen, it’s important
I wasn’t gonna tell you, but I thought I’d let you know
That I just got us both a mortgage
Now it’s top floor with these fancy reservations
I don’t even like it, I’m just here for observations
Tryna tell the difference from my people and my pagans
Cuh’ the last time that I slipped, I had a sticky situation
I will never slip again, you can put that on my savings
They wait for me to fall, I keep on waiting
This feeling is amazing, how’s it feel to hate the kid
But deep inside, you know you rate him? Man, that shit must be frustrating

[Chorus: Raye]
And I’m gonna wear it proud
Watch me as I wear it now
I’mma ride this money like a wave
This money like a wave, this money like a wave

[Bridge: Raye]
Now I made it this far, but this far ain’t nothing
If we’re talking ambition, I think you should know that I don’t wanna settle for nothing
I wanna know that I got myself
I wanna ride my money like a wave
My money like a wave, my money like a wave, yeah

[Outro: Raye]
Now I made it this far, but this far ain’t nothing
If we’re talking ambition, I think you should know that I don’t wanna settle for nothing

Stormzy ft. Kehlani – Cigarettes & Cush

[Pre-Chorus: Lily Allen & Stormzy]
I’m sorry that I’m late
And I missed your call
But you know night turn into day
I didn’t stop to pause
I know I never see your face
And baby, that’s my fault
But I’ma fix all my mistakes
So don’t stress no more

[Chorus: Lily Allen & Stormzy]
You got those cigarettes and cush
You don’t ever let me down
You got those cigarettes and cush
You don’t ever let me down
You got those cigarettes and cush
You don’t ever let me down
You got those cigarettes and cush
You don’t ever let me down
You got those cigarettes and cush (alright)
You don’t ever let me down
You got those cigarettes and cush (alright)
You don’t ever let me down
You got those cigarettes and cush (alright)
You don’t ever let me down

[Verse 1: Stormzy]
You don’t ever let me down
Got those cigarettes and cush
You don’t ever let me down
All those other girls just look
They ain’t never takin’ your crown
And, girl I know it gets on your nerves sometimes
When I don’t answer my phone
And yeah I double back on my words at times
But please don’t start with that tone, ’cause girl
I love you, you know, but I can’t be there
But when I get home, just roll my weed, yeah
What’s mine is yours, give you space to breathe here
Just weed and cush, that’s a major key here
Yeah, then you play me a song
Smokin’ smoke ’til we’re wavy and gone
Come home from a long hard day with the dons
Like where’s my baby? I’m sorry it’s been long

[Pre-Chorus: Lily Allen & Stormzy]
I’m sorry that I’m late
And I missed your call
But you know night turn into day
I didn’t stop to pause
I know I never see your face
And baby, that’s my fault
But I’ma fix all my mistakes
So don’t stress no more

[Chorus: Lily Allen & Stormzy]
You got those cigarettes and cush
You don’t ever let me down
You got those cigarettes and cush
You don’t ever let me down
You got those cigarettes and cush
You don’t ever let me down
You got those cigarettes and cush
You don’t ever let me down
You got those cigarettes and cush
You don’t ever let me down
You got those cigarettes and cush
You don’t ever let me down
You got those cigarettes and cush
You don’t ever let me down

[Verse 2: Kehlani]
As much as you think you’re alone in the way that you feel
I come home every day when it rain but it’s real
Between us, ground so far beneath us, sometimes I can’t read ya
But it don’t mean I won’t treat ya to a blunt full of that reefer
We may get in fights but I could never see me leavin’
Somethin’ ’bout how close the high can bring us, sober just don’t please us
If you’re wondering, yeah, I’m still here because I see us
But Mary makes it easy to talk to you
Aww, yeah, ’cause sometimes I just can’t spill my thoughts to you (I took you in every day)
At the end of every day I belong to you (Belong to you)
I’ll still pass the bong to you
I’ll write a song to you
I’ll do no wrong to you

[Pre-Chorus: Lily Allen, Stormzy & Kehlani]
I’m sorry that I’m late
And I missed your call
But you know night turn into day
I didn’t stop to pause
I know I never see your face
And baby, that’s my fault
But I’ma fix all my mistakes
So don’t stress no more

[Chorus: Lily Allen, Stormzy & Kehlani]
You got those cigarettes and cush
You don’t ever let me down
You got those cigarettes and cush
You don’t ever let me down
You got those cigarettes and cush
You don’t ever let me down
You got those cigarettes and cush
You don’t ever let me down
You got those cigarettes and cush
You don’t ever let me down
You got those cigarettes and cush
You don’t ever let me down
You got those cigarettes and cush
You don’t ever let me down
I promise

[Bridge: Stormzy & Kehlani]
You don’t ever let me down
I won’t ever let you down
‘Cause you don’t ever let me down
I won’t ever let you down
‘Cause you don’t ever let me down
I can’t ever let you down, down, down
Down, down, down, down

[Verse 3: Stormzy]
It’s been like a month now
Since you left my side
Got me smokin’ a blunt now
But there ain’t no vibe
‘Cause I fucked up badly
All I did was push
And there’s no more weed
No more cush
And I’m deep in the south side
And I can’t find love
I was lookin’ for my brown skin
Tryna find that buzz
Now what have you done, Stormz?
Now what have you caused?
And we weren’t just bredrens
We were so much more
Girl you was my hero
The beat to my heart
And them tears on your face
Man they tear me apart
Man I just wanna fix you
Fix what I broke
No cuddles on the sofa
No more smoke
And I pray God saves you
Man I pray all night
I just wanna say thank you
‘Cause you saved my life
But I cut you deep
And I know how it looks
Now there’s no more weed
No more cush
No more cush

[Outro]
No more cush, yeah
Now there’s no more cush
No more cush

Stormzy – Velvet / Jenny Francis (Interlude)

 

[Verse 1: Stormzy]
Yeah, alright, yeah
Yo, you just wanna know what it feels like
You don’t know what you want but it feels right
And you ain’t even my girl but we still tight
All your man took you ‘dam, aw sick that’s nang
Let me put you on a real flight
Yeah, welcome to the trill life
That views in the shard then I go and book a car
Then we go and get a meal life
You’re tryna look into my soul and see the real Mike
I got a long term plan, I’m a long term man
I’m just tryna’ get the deal right
But my issue is pride
If I ever told you I missed you, I lied
Screaming at my phone like “I wish you would try”
Poison love, I kiss you I die
You get mad, get pissed and you cry
Then you making one wish and send a kiss to the sky
I can’t lie man, I wish you were mine
But the truth is I ain’t got the tissue or time

[Pre-Hook]
I can show you my dirty little secrets
Promise me you’re always gonna keep it, girl
Tell me that you love me, you’re the sweetest
I didn’t want to love you but I beat it girl
I grow fonder, girl I grow fonder
I grow fonder, girl I grow fonder

[Hook: NAO]
A touch of the wind and it’s gone
I wish I could help it
Into my window of calm
Want only to take the flame
To the bridge of dawn
It feels just like velvet
A touch of the wind and it’s gone
Ooo then it’s gone

[Verse 2: Stormzy]
So how would you feel if a brother stayed around?
Taking care of you and not the other way around
Fell too deep, now we’re both 6 feet
Baby I can barely breathe, could you suffocate me now?
I don’t wanna sell a dream you can’t afford
I can take you round the city when you’re bored
Maybe when you finish your degree, we’ll go abroad
Your ex man never gave you nothing, he’s a fraud
Can you tell me what it feels like?
Tell me what it feels like
Welcome to the sweet life
Baby, welcome to the sweet life
Look, hanging up the phone on me, girl you’re too bright
You got a hold on me, girl you’re too tight
We can go from Paris to Rome in two nights
If I’m gonna do it then I gotta do it right, alright
I will never ever lead you astray (aye)
That’s all I never needed to say (aye)
The boys wanna tease at my faith (aye)
That’s just another reason to pray (aye)
And if you ever needed me to stay (aye)
I’ll always be a phone call away (aye)
Breathtaking, I’ll blow you away
Girl just face it, I know how you stay
If I tell you my every little interest
Thinking of you every time I rinse this, girl
But loving you is easier, the simplest
Running through the world you’re my princess girl
I grow fonder, girl I grow fonder
I grow fonder, girl I grow fonder

[Hook: NAO]
A touch of the wind and it’s gone
I wish I could help it
Into my window of calm
Want only to take the flame
To the bridge of dawn
It feels just like velvet
A touch of the wind and it’s gone
Ooo then it’s gone

[Verse 3: Stormzy]
Yeah, alright, alright, alright, alright
Okay, okay, okay, okay
Man thought that Stormzy couldn’t sing, haha
Yo, it feels just like velvet
A touch of the wind and it’s gone
I wish I could help it
Into my window of calm
Want only to take the flame
To the bridge of dawn
It feels just like velvet
A touch of the wind and it’s gone
Ooo then it’s gone, then it’s gone
Then it’s gone, ooo then it’s gone
A touch of the wind and it’s gone
Ooo then it’s gone
