Take It Back

Ed Sheeran

x


I'm not a rapper; I'm a singer with a flow
I've got a habit of spitting
Quicker lyrics you know
You found me ripping the writtens
Out of the pages they sit in
And never want to get bitten
Because plagiarism is sin
Watch how I sit on the rhythm
Prisoner with a vision

Signs of a label, but didn't listen to any criticism
Thought you knew but you didn't
So perk your ears up and listen
Studio is a system
And you could say that I'm driven
And now it's on to the next saga
We drink the best lager
I never tried to win you
Over like your stepfather
I do my own thing now, and get respect after
And I'm avoiding the cane like it was Get Carter

For four years I never had a place to stay
But it's safe to say that it kept me
Grounded like a paperweight
At 16 years old I moved out of my home
I was Macey Gray I tried to say goodbye and
I choked
And we've been sleeping at the subway station
Sleeping with a movie star
And adding to the population
Not my imagination, I don't want to relax
But would it hurt your reputation
If I put it on wax?
So take it back now

C'mon and take it back love
C'mon and take it back for us
Don't you fade into the back love
Ooh

Take it back with the rhythm and blues
And my back pack I'll be singing the news
Trying to act like Jack Black when
I'm running the school
I'll make a beat with my feet
By just hitting a loop
Bringing the lyrics to prove that I can fit in these shoes
And keeping the truth through the vocal booth
Stars burst out on the scene like an opal fruit
They try and take aim like Beckham
When he goes to shoot
But then again that's what they're supposed to do
And I'm supposed to be calm
I tattooed the lyrics onto my arm
Whispering everything that happens is from now on
I'll be willing to start again at the end of the song
Still they claim that I handled it wrong
But then I never had an enemy, except for Nme
But I'll be selling twice as many copies as
The magazines will ever be
With only spectacles ahead of me and festival fees
And healthier than a Dalmatian on pedigree
Singing for the masses
Rubber dinghy rapids
Keep this rapping a habit
And keep on passioning magic
I'm battling with respect
I don't know if I'll have it
This songs from the heart
Grabbing the plaque
I'll take it back now

C'mon and take it back love
C'mon and take it back for us
Don't you fade into the back love
Ooh

Take it back now
I don't ever want to be perfect
Cause I'm a singer that you
Never want to see shirtless
I accept the fact that
Someone has to win worst-dressed
Taking my first steps into the scene
Giving me focus
Putting on a brave face, like Timothy Dalton
Considering a name change
Thinking it was hopeless
Rhyming over recordings
Avoiding tradition
Cause every day some lyrics
And a melody can be written
Now absence can make your heart ache
But drinking absinthe can change your mind-state, vividly
I need to let my liver be
And I say it again
Living life on the edge
With a closed hand full of friends
Is good advice from a man
Who took his life on the road with me
And I hope to see him blowing up globally
Cause that's how it's supposed to be
Screaming out vocally
Might seem totally impossible
Achieving life's dreams
But, but I just write schemes
I'm never having a stylist, giving me tight jeans
Madison Square Garden is where I might be
But more likely
You'll find me in the back
Room of a dive bar with my mates
Having a pint with Mcdaid
Discussing records we made
And every single second knowing
That we'll never betray
The way we were raised
Remembering our background
Sat down
That's how we put it out
It's time to take it back now

C'mon and take it back love
C'mon and take it back for us
Don't you fade into the back love
Ooh

C'mon and take it back love
C'mon and take it back for us
Don't you fade into the back love
Ooh
