"A one-way street" in lyrics
Sh*t on rapping, I have never been a rapper
Since my 7th year of age it was my aim: outlaw
No way out exists, it remains to be a one-way street
And I sink here, because I just sleep on quicksands
No matter what I do you’re always mad
And I, I can’t change your mind
Now it’s like trying to turn around on a one way street
I can’t give you what you want and it’s killing me
And then you smile though it aches, cos you don't believe in mistakes, just that we made a mess of things...
When the deal that you made with love is just a one way street, a one way street, you feel you'll go overboard, cos you're incomplete, incomplete.
