Verse 1Let me take you back through time
’05, first day of school
Writing bars in my text books
Didn’t do work, I was too cool


So see ya, folk, didn’t know where to go
I just used rapping as a tool
Could’ve done better in the end
But I didn’t finish looking like a fool

Started as a hobby then grew
Another day I’ve gotta get through
People saw the passion when I did it then
He thought I’m gonna start copying you

A couple months later I see
A couple figures looking at me
Saying that they saw me writing down the lyrics
And he want to chill and be an MC

I didn’t want to sound too savvy
But I said come to the alley
We cyphered away from everybody
‘Cause the big kids thought we were chavvy

They did everything to make the shit stop
They’d spot us rhyming at the chip shop
And say you made the worst kind of song
Now they same guys love hip hop

It’s crazy, the tables have turned
Open your mind, maybe you’ll learn
Took a break now I’ve made the return
Setting fire to the rain, let it burn

I made the scene grow with the pen
And I didn’t know nobody then
I moved school, four months in
Had to start all over again


HookI’m feeling uncertain, I need to be sure
These people we knew, we don’t know anymore
Friends become distant, it’s not like before
It’s strange how so much has changed since back in the day

In school it was different, we also used to chat
But now we don’t speak, dam, how crazy is that?
All that I wish is that we could go back
It’s strange how so much has changed since back in the day


Verse 2Let’s fast forward a year, now I’m twelve
It feels like the year’s going too fast
People start to know who I am more
My song’s Bluetooth’d around the class

Didn’t think they’d show interest
All of a sudden they’re so impressed

Rap fans knew me ten times better
Other people would know me less

My track’s something everyone would mention
The only pupil getting comprehension
Got caught writing in my planner
Now my head of year if getting me detention

Now I’m sitting in the hall
Feeling upset thinking ‘bout it all
Wish I was at home kicking round a ball
Dad’s at home, teacher giving him a call

Now my fam are angry at me
All my school mates are laughing at me
I can not believe that I’m getting grief
For extra curricular activity

I’m asking why is it me?
People get away with fights in PE
I’ve been done for writing rhymes, can it be?
This can not be the right school for me

But I’ve gotta stay ’til the end
I find it hard making new friends
People pick on me for writing music every day
I do not feel safe around them

I close my eyes, count up to ten
Look around and I’m aged eighteen
Got my pen and pad beside me again
Just another anecdotal day dream

HookI’m feeling uncertain, I need to be sure
These people we knew, we don’t know anymore
Friends become distant, it’s not like before
It’s strange how so much has changed since back in the day

In school it was different, we also used to chat
But now we don’t speak, dam, how crazy is that?
All that I wish is that we could go back
It’s strange how so much has changed since back in the day

CodaYou see, I’m just reminiscing on how things used to be, you know, everything was care free. If only it was that way now. You’re listening to Blizzard.
