Headie One – Memories Lyrics

Headie One Memories Lyrics (feat. Sampha)

One of my earliest memories was bloodshed (Ugh)
You see, on the ends, all the crazy things you see through a window
You grew up on a household where everybody hates the back bread
You fight for the last slice like we Kimbo
Winter time walks to primary school, we took the slip road (Uh-huh)
Had to climb five flights of stairs becah the lift broke (Uh-huh)
Hard tryna fix a broken home, this home been broke
I got shipped to Ghana, missed the primary school disco
To think that was eighteen years ago makes me feel old (Suh-suh-suh-suh)
Yo, you could avoid an outcome so much it turns inevitable
Pops made mistakes, I still put him on a pedestal

And I can only blame myself for gettin’ involved
I was sittin’ on a rock like Fred Flintstone
Prayin’ to the Lord that a fiend’ll ring the flip phone

The side effect of memories (The side effect)
Is weighing on me mentally (It’s weighing)
That can be a friend to me or an enemy (Can be a friend to me, to me or an enemy)
The side effect of memories (The side effect)
Is weighing on me mentally (It’s weighing)
That can be a friend to me or an enemy (Can be a friend to me, to me or an enemy)

And now the consequence is PTSD, there’s jealousy and envy
I’m sat alone, I’m thinkin’ everybody’s out to get me (Argh)
I try and change, but my destiny, it just won’t let me
I seen everyone progress, except me
I been imprisoned by my memory, I’m free but not free (One)
Chest pains, I think I need Ibuprofen (One)
Got cold feet with insomnia, I’ve had no sleep (Argh)
You seen your bro get stabbed and hope he don’t sleep (Uh)
I wrapped my vest around his belly, say he won’t bleed (Argh)
He’s havin’ nightmares now, he started sippin’ codeine (Turn)
Mother had co-de’s, but never had a codie
Should’ve been Maldives and poppin’ off in Sony (Turn, turn)

And I can only blame myself for gettin’ involved (Turn, turn)
I was sittin’ on a rock like Fred Flintstone
Prayin’ to the Lord that a fiend’ll ring the flip phone

The side effect of memories (The side effect)
Is weighing on me mentally (It’s weighing)
That can be a friend to me or an enemy (Can be a friend to me, to me or an enemy)
The side effect of memories (The side effect)
Is weighing on me mentally (It’s weighing)
That can be a friend to me or an enemy (Can be a friend to me, to me or an enemy)
