Twig - We Write These Songs (ft Young Ess Pee)
@listentotwig, @youngesspee

We write these songs to right these wrongs
Create these beats to save these streets
Make this sound to save this town
Bring this vibe up from the underground

I feel so right when I get up on the mic
So I took it to the world on an Emirates flight
The centre of the planet in this GMT
I feel electric M GMT

Roll outside the box but never telling you lies
I might revise every line for the day or the night
From the ground to the sky inspiration alive
And maybe on the way i can change a few lives

Reviving the art of telling you a tale
Raining metaphors like you're caught out in the hail
They're hitting you heavy and they make you stop and think
Then slide into your skin and get stuck like ink

Aerosmith Pink was just a simple concept
But out of context, the message is wrecked
Inspect and analyse all of the life in my lines
I'll do what I can to tell this story in rhymes

I write rhymes with passion they're in time
Soon you'll see me on TV with Twig why?
Cos we've just made a banger, the streets wild
And we're gonna make more, so watch out

I got determination in this game I persevere 'em
Ess told me keep on digging F the hater, keep on winning
Asked Twig to make a track the outcome was brilliant
I make songs that are great, they're so exquisite

I speak the truth in my bars, with catchy lyrics
I'm always working so hard, I'm so persistent
F the fakes up in the background I'm gone I'm distant
More time I'm awake, F the dreaming

I started rapping more and more with the help of Ess
I used to go at random times just to see his bliss
George boosted up my ego so for him respect
I've come so far, who knows what will happen next

Take a couple words, and add a little ditty
Make it kinda warm or maybe angry and gritty
And when the two come together like an arrow and a feather
You have piece of art that'll weather any weather

Now all that i can think of since I got into the game
Is writing driving classics like I'm stuck in one lane
Sometimes it's a pain but I hope that you can feel it
Every emotion I feel like I have to steal it

Then reveal it to the populous in something not as obvious
And hope you dig the ride as you dissect and scrutinise it
This could be my hobby job passion or whatever
'til the day i die or the cable gets severed

A moment in time we endeavour to capture
Lifting you up like you're caught up in the rapture
You're looking like a genie when I lay it down tight
My wish is your command when my names up in lights
