Lyrics



Searchin' every corner of my mind

Lookin' for the answers I can't find

I have my reasons and life has its lessons and

Tried to be grateful and count all my blessings

But heavy is the head that wears the crown



Amen and Jesus nameless, I declare it

Any little seed I receive, I have to share it

Bruddas wanna break me down, I can't bare it

But heavy is the head with the crown, I still wear it

You can't hold me down, I still cope

Rain falling down at the BRITs, I'm still soaked

Tried put a hole in our shit, we'll build both

Two birds with one stone, I kill 'em both

Pray I never lose and pray I never hit the shelf (Too)

Promise if I do that, you'll be checkin' on my health (Cool)

If it's for my people, I'll do anything to help

If I do it out of love, it's not to benefit myself, ooh

Gotta stay around but make her come back too

I know my only mother wants her son back too

They sayin' I'm the voice of the young black youth

And then I say "yeah, cool" and then I bun my zoot

And now I'm-



Searchin' every corner of my mind (Searchin' for corners, lookin' for answers)

Lookin' for the answers I can't find (No, I can't find 'em, no silver lining)

I have my reasons and life has its lessons and

Tried to be grateful and count all my blessings

But heavy is the head that wears the crown



Amen, in Jesus name, oh yes, I claim it

Any little bread that I make, I have to break it

Bruddas wanna break me down, I can't take it

I done a scholarship for the kids, they say it's racist

That's not anti-white, that's pro-black

Hang me out to dry, I won't crack

All these fancy ties and gold plaques

Never had no silver spoons and our mouths we sold... like

Don't comment on my culture, you ain't qualified

Stab us in the back and then apologise

If you knew my story you'll be horrified

The irony of trappin' on a Boris bike

Thought I'd stay alive and save my brother as well

Look at all these legends on the cover of L

Long time comin' but we come to prevail

I guess a little bit of heaven has to come with the hell, you know



Searchin' every corner of my mind (Searchin' for corner, look for the answers)

Lookin' for the answers I can't find (No, I can't find 'em, no silver lining)

I have my reasons and life has its lessons and

Tried to be grateful and count all my blessings

But heavy is the head that wears the crown



Heavy is the head that wears the crown

The "total plays" shown on this page simply refers to the total number of times our archiving system has seen it being played since it was launched on the 28th of July 2014. It should not be relied upon as an exact figure for total all-time plays as the true figure could vary by quite a substantial amount.
