Little Simz – Backseat


Loud niggas step into Simz and get silenced
All I hear ’em saying is, what you become
Daddy probably rather me an athlete
All my life been the black keys
[Post-Hook]
All my life in the backseat
True I never really was a bad breed
[Verse 2]
Phone rings and I [?] everyone
Though I got Gs that are already in the hair for it
Man that nigga move like a taxi
Man I got a life that is crazy most cannot live it
Man that nigga move like a taxi
[Hook]
I’ma be a ghost for a minute don’t get in your feelings
Still struggling to find who I trust though
All my life been a black sheep

Don’t get it confused ’cause I’m humble and I’m quiet
Guess I’m the one, the people I’ma fight for
I ain’t even wrote for a minute, not a single lyrics
You can hear it my rhymes, I’ll be thinking aloud

Got me believing in Buddha the more I proceed
Make your mind up, what you mean? What you desire?
I just do me on my own and I’m the driver
All my life felt a cold breeze
Take me higher, get an eight from the supplier
Phone rings and I missed [?] everyone
Daddy probably rather me an athlete
All these eyes in the front row, hella’ pure souls in the front row
All those eyes staring at me
Twenty-three feeling older and I’m wiser
[Verse 1]
[Post-Hook]
Give me some time and a little space, I’ll figure it out
All my life been the black keys
Oh this life isn’t guaranteed
Talk about life is it that sweet?
Like people get killed out here but mummy I’m a rider and a fighter
Talk about life is it that sweet?
How I break heart, feel a soul weep (soul weep)
All those eyes staring at me
Surely you should know regret, who your ride for
This is what you signed up for, you forget
They wanna know my whereabouts, and who I’m around

[Hook]
And now we staying up and never down, you hearing me now?
True I never really was a bad breed
Oh

All my life in the backseat
Niggas hating but it’s cool man, it’s a minor
All my life been a black sheep
All my life caught the bus home, through the north side
Never been a dickhead in life, never try me
Man that nigga move like a taxi
This is what you asked for don’t weep
All my life been the black keys
This is what you get, this is what you get
Wouldn’t be honest with myself if I don’t speak
This is what you signed up for, you forget
All I hear ’em saying is, what you become
Talk about life is it that sweet?
This is what you get, this is what you get
See I’m tryna’ sabotage me, got me fucking living
All my life been a black sheep
Daddy probably rather me an athlete
But there’s no need, I just want peace
Remember seeing J Cole I was in the front row

Then I got a pedal bike, momma flipped when I got home
Couldn’t move, was in awe if you must know
Been in wonderland for time tryna’ find our way out
All those eyes staring at me
True I never really was a bad breed
All my life search for what I’d die for
All my life in the backseat
So I make the point to address ’em and you know me
All my life in the cut though
I’ve been feeling real low nigga, lowkey (lowkey)
Don’t winge, man I’m here and I won’t leave
Tattoos on my passport, no sleep
All I wanna do, make songs, blow trees
[Hook]
I ain’t gotta say how and it don’t involve violence
