Lyrics HGU – Loyle Carner

Yeah, I forgive you, I forgive you, I forgive you
After everything we’ve been through
Everything we seen
The Disney Channel on the screen
Yo, I can’t forget the screams
Late at night, clinging to the beams
Wonder, is he understanding what I mean
Saying don’t go now, yo, please
‘Cause I was starting to believe
The first twenty-seven years, a bad dream

Finally found my feet
Head low, walking through the streets
Had these headphones filling up with beats
My mind speaks, I’m hurt
Still rosy in my cheeks
Why do autumn leaves get to fall in peace
When it’s falling down on me

I keep my hands where you can see
‘Cause I ain’t being fallen by police
Felt you calling in my jeans
My back pocket splitting in the seams
I couldn’t start the car, find the keys

Yeah, yo, I forgive you, I forgive you, I forgive you
And I hope that it continues
After everything you’ve been through
Living a life that was sinful
Slicing through my belly like a ginsu
The birthday cake I bring you
Know you feel, know you’re ’bout to cry
I can see it in the corner of your eye
There ain’t nothing you can hide
Locking off the phone out of pride

Doesn’t matter if you blow it in the skies
‘Cause I’m knowing why, like pawn to E4
Bishop C4, that’s light work
Queen to F3, I can see more
My best days
Still my heart banging out my chest plate
Queen to F7, that was checkmate
Hoping that my pen breaks
So I can finish this and press play
Listen to decisions that my pen makes
‘Cause Ben stayed
Yeah, I’m saying Ben stayed
The next day, the next day then the next day

Yo, I forgive you, I forgive you, I forgive you
‘Cause I know that it’s within you
And I’m better when I’m with you
Tryna reconnect as we begin to
Understand the reasons that you’re sinful

‘Cause Earth’s evil, yeah
‘Cause hurt people, hurt people
Especially the ones who weren’t equal
The burnt treacle
Wonder what would be expected in the sequel
Except for the cycle to repeat ’cause that’s the default
That life’s lethal
Watching history repeat itself
So I can rewrite the ending and the prequel
And figure out the bit in the middle until it keeps all
Of my people together and living peaceful

Trust, ’cause ain’t no Jack, ain’t no beanstalk
Ain’t no fairy tales, places we walk but we fought
Just for this, just for smiles, yo, that he brought
Still I’m lucky, yo, that we talk

So I forgive you, I forgive you, I forgive you
I forgive you, I forgive you, I forgive you…
