Take It Back

Edd Sheran

I'm not a rapper; I'm a singer with a flow
 I've got a habit of spitting
 Quicker lyrics you know
 You found me ripping the writtens
 Out of the pages they sit in
 And never once I get bitten
 Because plagiarism is hidden
 Which I would sit on the rhythm
 Prisoner with a vision
 Signs of a label, but didn't listen to any criticism
 Thought you knew but you didn't
 So perk your ears up and listen
 Studio is a system
 And you could say that I'm driven
 And now it's on to the next saga
 We drink the best lager
 I never tried to win you over
 Like your stepfather
 I do my own thing now, and get respect after
 And I'm avoiding c*caine like it was Get Carter
 For four years I never had a place to stay
 But it's safe to say that it kept me grounded like a paperweight
 At 16 years old, yeah I moved out of my home
 I was Macy Gray I tried to say goodbye and I choked
 To make from sleeping at the subway station
 To sleeping with a Movie star and adding to the population
 Not my imagination, I don't wanna relax
 Would it hurt your reputation
 If I put it on wax?
 I'll take it back now...

[Chorus:]
 Mmmm c'mon and take it back love,
 C'mon and take it back for us
 Don't you fade into the back love
 No

Take it back with the rhythm and blues
 With my rap pack I'll be singing the news,
 Trying to act like Jack Black when I bring 'em to school
 I'll make a beat with my feet by just hitting a loop,
 Bringing the lyrics to prove that I can fit in these shoes,
 I give you the truth through the vocal booth,
 Stars burst out on the scene like an opal fruit,
 They try and take aim like Beckham when he goes to shoot,
 But then again that's what they're supposed to do,
 And I'm supposed to be calm,
 I tattooed the lyrics onto my arm,
 Whispering everything that happens is from now on,
 I'll be ready to start again at the end of the song,
 Still their claiming that I handled it wrong,
 But then I never had an enemy, except for NME,
 But I'll be selling twice as many copies as the magazines will ever be,
 With only spectacles ahead of me and festival fees,
 I'm healthier than a Dalmatian on Pedigree,
 Singing for the masses,
 Rubber dinghy rapids,
 Keep this rapping a habit
 And keep on passioning magic,
 I'm battling for respect,
 I don't know if I'll have it,
 This songs from the heart,
 Cover the planet
 I'll take it back now

[Chorus]

Take it back now
 Now I don't ever want to be perfect,
 Cause I'm a singer that you
 Never want to see shirtless
 And I accept the fact that someone has to win worst-dressed,
 Taking my first steps into the scene,
 Giving me focus
 Putting on a brave face, like Timothy Dalton
 Considering a name change,
 Thinking it was hopeless
 Rhyming over recordings
 Avoiding tradition
 Cause every day some lyrics
 And a melody can be written
 Now absence can make your heart break
 But drinking absinthe can change your mind-state, vividly,
 I need to let my liver be
 And I say it again,
 Living life on the edge,
 With a closed hand full of friends
 Is good advice from a man
 Who took his life on the road with me
 And I hope to see him blowing up globally
 Cause that's how it's supposed to be
 I'm screaming out vocally
 It might seem totally impossible
 Achieving life's dreams
 But, but I just write schemes
 I'm never having a stylist, giving me tight jeans
 Madison Square Garden is where I might be
 But more likely,
 You'll find me in the back
 Room of a dive bar with my mates
 Having a pint with McDaid
 Discussing records we made
 And every single second knowing
 That we'll never betray
 The way we were raised
 Remembering our background
 Sat down
 That's how we plan it out;
 It's time to take it back now

[Chorus x2]

My dreams keep me awake at night
 Written in rhymes, 'til I deliver the hype
 Am I just living the lie
 With this you must know that the number's just sold whoa
 Will keep me going through the tough times, dream with me
 We forget 90 per cent of it when we wake
 But the other 10 per cent it never fades
 Dreaming dreams, day to day goals
 Stay awake loads, try to make the cut like the
 Paper or razor blade, oh, never give up
 And just remember just to hold out more
 A couple years ago
 I couldn't just control that thought
 You'd find me buskin' on the street
 When it was cold outdoors
 And now I'm sweating on the stage of a sold out tour
 Writing love songs for the sake of it
 Never to make a hit
 You can't fake talent and work ethic just to make it quick
 I'm not a rapper I'm a singer, I just take the piss and
 Most of these other guys are kids that pose
 His little sister has to babysit, that's just a way it is
 Dreams you own, just set your goals
 And have the utmost faith in it; tread your own path
 You'll never make it as a follower, you'll never know
 Where you will go or where you will be tomorrow rha.
