Stormzy – Lay Me Bare Lyrics

Lay Me Bare Lyrics By Stormzy

One more time, I’ll make it clear
This some shit I hate to share
Escape this life, I’ll pay the fare
Grab this gun and aim it there
Shoot my pain and slay my fear
Before I die, I say my prayer
Don’t worry about the mess, just lay me there
This is all I’ve got, so lay me bare

Look, one more time, I’ll make it clear
This some shit I hate to share
Escape this life, I’ll pay the fare
Grab this gun and aim it there
Shoot my pain and slay my fear
Before I die, I say my prayer
Don’t worry about the mess, just lay me there
This is all I’ve got, so lay me bare

Lord, help me please, I’m breaking down
Tryna call my name and take my crown
Little bit of pain, I’ll paint the town
When they put me in my grave, don’t make a sound
‘Cause there’s still some things I find it hard
Smoke my spliff and write my bars
I know they see me climb the charts
But plaques won’t help me find my heart

Yo, God, what’s good? I need you bad
Devil’s in my ear, I need you back
Got scars on my soul, I’ve been attacked
Even when I’m low, I seem relaxed
But the year’s been mad, I lost my way
They think I went ghost to drop my tape
Not knowing that I fell and lost my faith
Like Satan, please, no, not today

So fuck this shit, this ain’t a joke
Just to get away, I take a toke
I took this pain and made a boat
Lord knows how the fuck I stayed afloat
Last year, I cried too many times
Weren’t for Flipz and weren’t for rhymes
Weren’t for Rachel, weren’t for Kelly
Man, them people saved my life

Like, man, I get low sometimes, so low sometimes
Airplane Mode on my phone sometimes
Sittin’ in my house with tears in my face
Can’t answer the door to my bro, sometimes
Roaming around all alone sometimes
Them lonesome times
I was a young Ned Stark
But this shit’s like Game of Thrones, sometimes

One more time, I’ll make it clear
This some shit I hate to share
Escape this life, I’ll pay the fare
Grab this gun and aim it there
Shoot my pain and slay my fear
Before I die, I say my prayer
Don’t worry about the mess, just lay me there
This is all I’ve got, so lay me bare

Look, one more time, I’ll make it clear
This some shit I hate to share
Escape this life, I’ll pay the fare
Grab this gun and aim it there
Shoot my pain and slay my fear
Before I die, I say my prayer
Don’t worry about the mess, just lay me there
This is all I’ve got, so lay me bare

Like, bro, I can’t believe I saw my dad
Still up in the ends, still driving cabs
He said, “Yo, son, I need a car”
I kissed my teeth and turned my back
Like, n****, you ain’t seen my face for years
N****, you ain’t seen my face for time
And the first thing you’re asking for is that
Fuck you, that’s where I’ll draw the line

Should’ve dashed through a rack, like, keep the change
And fuck letting go, I’ll keep the pain
Twenty-three years, I’m still the same
When you hear this, I hope you feel ashamed
Can we were broke, like what the fuck?
Mum did well to hold us up
But yet, she still forgave your arse
But Mumzy’s cool, I’m cold as fuck

Fuck that, I’m still not over this
Fuck that, nah, I’m still not over this
Flipz told me someone died in Heath
Like, please don’t say I know the kid
When I heard TS, I kissed my teeth
And then I broke down in disbelief
My bro TH and Yogi too
Man, I’ll be damned to miss the streets

But I still got old school friends that I shoulda been cool with
Man that I ride for, man I went to school with
Man that I love and man I kicked ball with
My phones’ there, just call it
But I guess things just got strange for me
We all grew fast and gracefully
I left my hood and grabbed the mic
And I’ve got me a girl that prays for me

One more time, I’ll make it clear
This some shit I hate to share
Escape this life, I’ll pay the fare
Grab this gun and aim it there
Shoot my pain and slay my fear
Before I die, I say my prayer
Don’t worry about the mess, just lay me there
This is all I’ve got, so lay me bare

Look, one more time, I’ll make it clear
This some shit I hate to share
Escape this life, I’ll pay the fare
Grab this gun and aim it there
Shoot my pain and slay my fear
Before I die, I’ll say my prayer
Don’t worry about the mess, just lay me there
It’s all I’ve got, so lay me bare
Lay me
Bare
