Little Simz – Angel Lyrics

Verse 1
Never cared ’bout being immortalized
How can I stand with the opps and not with the tribe?
They sell you a dream and then want you to glorify
Got a rude awakening by ignoring up all the signs
Why did I give you the keys to authorize shit on my behalf?
Now I’m scarred and mortified
What did I expect from those living the corporate life?
Unfortunately, honesty isn’t normalized
Had to get my shit together and get organized
If your hand’s in my pockets, I’m calling up all the guys
Though, I don’t wanna be the reason of more divide
Guess that’s in my nature of being a water sign
I’m sort of like
Nothing is making sense in my awkward mind
Give me your ears to lend me for the night
Shooting in the dark, guess I never saw the light
Revoke access, I’m running it back, yes
Missing opportunities, I wish I was that pressed
Yeah, I say that shit with my damn chest
You need me and you feel the loss of my absence
The novelty wears oft after a few years
After a few tears from challenging new fears
Learning everything I didn’t on the come up
We was too busy making music till the sun up
Every day through the summer
Didn’t learn the business and now I’m ducking for cover
What a fuck up
Might just leave a bad taste thinking I’m a sucker
Come up out my damn face, nigga, did I stutter?
It’s gon’ be a sad case if you see my brothers
I can see how an artist can get tainted, frustrated
They don’t care if your mental is on the brink of something dark
As long as you’re cutting somebody’s payslip
And sending their kids to private school in a spaceship
Yeah, I refuse to be on a slave ship
Give me all my masters and lower your wages
Huh, what I’m bringing to the table is more than a feast for the belly of the beast
Didn’t know I’m dropping something heavy for the streets
Fuck the politics, I’m going Meghan on you neeks
I need the best seats in the house
When the truth unfolds, it’s gonna be one hell of a scene
Harry listening from Heaven on repeat
He was backing it when nobody believed
“Play the game, play the game,” is what they scream
You can play the game, I don’t see the need, no

Chorus
Feel so alive
I woke up and I prayed for a sign
I know good things take time
God sent me you as an angel
When you’re alone
The little thoughts that nobody knows
Hardest thing to do was stay strong
I knew I needed an angel

Verse 2
My Saturn return in effect
Life doesn’t come with presets
My frequency’s seamless
They want you give more, expect you to dream less
Got me confessing all my secrets
You ain’t the only one under deep stress
Please don’t take my kindness for a weakness
Get G checked for your disrespect
Perception and observation is clinical
More headspace, I’ve been shaving off my occipital
They say you can’t hate who you don’t love
And they say love is unconditional
I’m ready to do the unthinkable
Fuck rules and everything that’s traditional
Giving your heart to someone might just leave you in a something, something

Chorus
Feel so alive
I woke up and I prayed for a sign
I know good things take time
God sent me you as an angel
When you’re alone
The little thoughts that nobody knows
Hardest thing to do was stay strong
I knew I needed an angel
An angel

Verse 3
How you go against the same system you were colonized by?
Brother, your whole ting compromised
Having these conversations with self and nobody else
Thinking they don’t understand my thinking when I socialize
I need a angel with me for armor
I need accountability, partner
I know that all these blessings are karma
I need a fire lit by the seaside
Purest manuka up in my beehive
Give me a second and let the beat ride
Is there a golden key to the sweet life?
I don’t know what’s got into me
But at least I’m making time for self and not others when I got free time
New woman, don’t tell me I shouldn’t just because you couldn’t
They say, “Don’t you give up too much of the truth to ’em”
Well, I got nine more songs in the boot for ’em
Figure this is the moment, I gotta speak now
Head high, back straight, feet down
Posture going crazy
Had to stand tall while they were trying to break me
Fuck that, you niggas didn’t make me
And I say you will never infiltrate me
Dim my light? Are you crazy?
Yo, we two worlds apart, you know, lady, lady, lady
Flo and I coming like DeNiro and Scorsese
Stop trying to box me in, there’s no way you can place me
Hit ’em with a classic then I got a little lazy
Had to get a pen when I remembered that I’m JAY-Z
Had to cut you off because I found out you were snaky
I got angels guiding my steps, guarding my life from now until death
Perspective is everything and I wonder what they see
Hurt people hurt people, I get it, but don’t play me
My Saturn return in effect
Life doesn’t come with presets
My frequency’s seamless
So, please don’t take my kindness for a weakness
‘Cause I got angels
