Alkaline - Somebody Great

Day and day me a lose offa humans, you know?
No, big man thing
Me a pree fi go move to a different planet or something
Big man thing, mee lose offa Earth, straight
Them nuh...them nuh make people like them used to
Me a tell yuh

They don't love me now like they used to do
And we don't really talk like we used to do
They don't love me now
Like they used to do, like they used to do
Like they used to do

They don't love me now like they used to do
And we don't really talk like we used to do
They don't love me now
Like they used to do, like they used to do
Like they used to do

Jump out a bed inna whole different place
Price you 'affi pay fi be somebody great
Everybody waan something, complaints 'pon complaints
Price you 'affi pay fi be somebody great
Have me big house a yard and live out a suitcase
Price you 'affi pay fi be somebody great
Haffi laugh up with some people weh me nuh rate
Price you 'affi pay fi be somebody great

They don't love me now like they used to do
And we don't really talk like we used to do
They don't love me now
Like they used to do, like they used to do
Like they used to do

They don't love me now like they used to do
And we don't really talk like we used to do
They don't love me now
Like they used to do, like they used to do
Like they used to do

Just chat to Shabba seh him love how me a deal with the place
Seh a said way dem use to fight him inna '87, '88
Him seh gwaan do your thing youth
And nuh listen weh nobody seh straight
If you never mek the sound, dem a hear, gwaan dweet
Dancehall is a heavy weight
Suppose me never buss, some artist still woulda have dem space
Them wouldn't a complain, them wouldn't have time fi hate
Some a them wouldn't even have time fi go party every night straight
Wouldn't a cuss and seh them get unda rate
Wouldn't haffi bleach 'pon panta fi dub plate
Me might retire a likkle late
Every man waan be the man, man just waan be great
Me see tour dates a get shorter
Me see egos a get smaller
(Ha) Neva see smoke without fire
Everybody a beg friend, a look strength from each other
Cyaan tell when last me see me mother
Long fi reason with father
Them back to back flight ya, every week a get to me now
Cyaan tell when last me see me yard

They don't love me now like they used to do
And we don't really talk like we used to do
They don't love me now
Like they used to do, like they used to do
Like they used to do

They don't love me now like they used to do
And we don't really talk like we used to do
They don't love me now
Like they used to do, like they used to do
Like they used to do

Jump out a bed inna whole different time
Left Jamaica after 12, land inna Europe after 9
The time of badmind
The time of hypocrites, you get 'fraid fi speak yuh mind
The time, the time
When loyalty is just fi a time
When mankind bad and naive
All a them Rolex ya and me still feel like me nah no time
Me start stay more to meself now
Me stop tek care a me health now
Who else me a go help now?
Who me a go gi' a strength to
Who a go remind me why me me nuh gi' no strength now?
(Hmph) Honestly, me nuh too trust people so much
(Hmph) Honestly, them get comfortable dem feel them know you too much
No honestly, me feel me too real
Honest too much
Them gi' we five minutes of fame, that was too much
Come in by the teaspoon, come out with a cup full up

They don't love me now like they used to do
And we don't really talk like we used to do
They don't love me now
Like they used to do, like they used to do
Like they used to do

They don't love me now like they used to do
And we don't really talk like we used to do
They don't love me now
Like they used to do, like they used to do
Like they used to do

Day and day me a lose off a humans, you know?
Jah know
A pree fi go move to a different planet or something
