      Ed Sheeran - Take It Back Música y Letra

      "Take It Back"
      
      I'm not a rapper I'm a singer with a flow
      I've got a habit for spitting quicker lyrics you know
      You'll find me ripping the written out of the pages they sit in
      I never want to get bitten
      Cause plagiarism is hidden
      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 onto the next saga
      We drink the best lager
      I'll never try to win you over like your stepfather
      I do my own thing now
      And get respect after
      And I'm avoiding the 'caine
      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 paper weight
      At 16 years old yeah I moved out of my home
      I was Macy Gray I tried to say goodbye and I choked
      Went from sleeping at a subway station
      To sleeping with a movie star
      And adding to the population
      Not my imagination
      I don't wanna relax
      Would it hurt your reputation if I put it on wax?
      I take it back now
      
      Mmmm come on and take it back love
      Come on and take it back for us
      Don't you fade into the back love
      No
      
      I take it back with the rhythm and blues
      With my rap pack I'll be singing the news
      Tryin' act like Jack Black
      When I bring it to school
      I make a beat with my feet
      By just hittin' the loop
      Bringing the lyrics to prove
      That I can fit in these shoes
      I give you the truth through the vocal booth
      And stars burst out on the scene
      Like an opal fruit
      They try to 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 ready to start again
      By the end of the song
      Since they are claiming I handled it wrong
      But then I've never had an enemy
      Except the NME but I'll be selling
      Twice as many copies as their magazine will ever be
      With only spectacles ahead of me
      And festival fees are healthier than a Dalmatian on pedigree
      Singing for the masses rubber dingied rapids
      I keep this rapping a habit and keep on fashioning magic
      I'm battling for respect and I don't know if I have it
      This song's from the heart cover the planet
      I take it back now
      
      Mmmm come on and take it back love
      Come on and take it back for us
      Don't you fade into the back love
      No
      And take it back now
      
      Now I don't ever wanna be perfect
      Cause I'm a singer that you never wanna see shirtless
      And I accept the fact that someone's got to win worst dressed
      Taken 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 days some lyrics and a melody can be written
      Now absence can make your heart ache
      But drinking absinth can change your mind state
      Vividly need to let my liver be
      And I'll say it again living life on the edge with a close handful of friends
      Is good advice from the man that took his life on the road with me
      And I hope to see him blowing up globally
      'Cause that how it's supposed to be
      I'm screaming out vocally
      It 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 find me in the back room of a dive bar with my mates having a pint of 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 plan it out
      It's time to take it back now
      
      Mmmm come on and take it back love
      Come on and take it back for us
      Don't you fade into the back love
      No
      
      Mmm come on and take it back love
      Come on and take it back for us
      Don't you fade into the back love
      No
      
      [Album version stops here]
      
      My dreams keep me awake at night
      Written in rhymes, 'til I deliver the hype
      Am I just living the lie
      With this you must know that the number's just sold whoa
      Will keep me going through the tough times, dream with me
      We forget 90 per cent of it when we wake
      But the other 10 per cent it never fades
      Dreaming dreams, day to day goals
      Stay awake loads, try to make the cut like the
      Paper or razor blade, oh, never give up
      And just remember just to hold out more
      A couple years ago
      I couldn't just control that thought
      You'd find me buskin' on the street
      When it was cold outdoors
      And now I'm sweating on the stage of a sold out tour
      Writing love songs for the sake of it
      Never to make a hit
      You can't fake talent and work ethic just to make it quick
      I'm not a rapper I'm a singer, I just take the piss and
      Most of these other guys are kids that Pulses
      Little sister has to babysit, that's just the way it is
      Dreams you own, just set your goals
      And have the utmost faith in it; tread your own path
      You'll never make it as a follower, you'll never know
      Where you will go or where you will be tomorrow rha.
