Aitch – Close To Home Lyrics

Aitch Close To Home Lyrics

(Oh, uh-oh, oh, la, la, la, la
Oh, uh-oh, oh, la, la, la, la)
Oh-oh-oh-oh-oh, oh, uh-oh, oh, la, la, la, la
Oh, uh-oh, oh, la, la, la, la

They love me when I’m home, but I’m never there
We like it here, but it’s better there
We like it here, but it’s better there
Yeah, we like it here, but it’s better there

Oh-oh-oh-oh-oh, oh, uh-oh, oh, la, la, la, la
Oh-oh-oh-oh-oh, oh, uh-oh, oh, la, la, la, la
Yeah, we like it here, but it’s better there
Yeah, we like it here, but it’s better there

(Better there, never there
Never there, better there)

Most the ends behind the steel gates
Some man experiencing some real pain
See some old friends and wonder if we’re still mates
Couple bruddahs moving shaky since the deal came
‘Long as the fucking bills paid
Tried not to, but I still changed
Most the girls I met are solid with some good hearts
But the ones who done me wrong, I hope it still aches, yeah
You could bang me up for life
I’d be handling it right
Boy, I got Manny in my core (Core), yeah
All the cameras and the lights
Main attraction for the night, if I get anti they get bored (Bored), yeah
What’s the damage on the price
By now, there ain’t much we can’t actually afford (‘Ford), yeah
But what’s cash without a life
Three months I ain’t even seen my family, I’m on tour (Tour)

Went from trapping on a bike to a lavish livin’ life
Bro’s standing up in court (Court), yeah
Pack your bag, we got a flight
Tell mum and dad I love ’em
I’ll be back again for sure (Sure)
Pack your bag, we got a ride
Ain’t my brother, you can’t come if you won’t **** for me and more
You get a fraction of my life
But the rest, you don’t know nuttin’
So don’t act like you’re on course

They love me when I’m home, but I’m never there
We like it here, but it’s better there
We like it here, but it’s better there
Yeah, we like it here, but it’s better there

Oh-oh-oh-oh-oh, oh, uh-oh, oh, la, la, la, la
Oh-oh-oh-oh-oh, oh, uh-oh, oh

Say a prayer before I hit the stage
Tell God to please forgive me if I misbehave
I ain’t perfect, but I’m learning, all this shit’s a game
I know people ’round me lurking, tryna build a name
Fuck ’em all, I hope they’re living straight
Still wonder how they’re coping since I been away
In the bits they put a hole in you for little change
At this point staying local’s just a big mistake

But how the fuck I’m supposed to leave?
When my brothers are in need, I still got cousins in the streets, yeah
Went from Nuthurst to the quays
Came running straight back, shit weren’t as comfy as it seems, yeah
All this money I don’t need
But ain’t made enough to quit, looks like I’m doubling the fees, yeah
Take me home, I just want peace
Losing focus, this ain’t me, I ain’t been sober for a week

Only happy when I’m close to home
Need no one but my family if they went I couldn’t hold my own
Mum and dad had twins, one of them with extra chromosomes
So I’ma stay by ’em till somebody turns me Holy Ghost

They love me when I’m home, but I’m never there
We like it here, but it’s better there
We like it here, but it’s better there
Yeah, we like it here, but it’s better there

Oh-oh-oh-oh-oh, oh, uh-oh, oh, la, la, la, la
Oh-oh-oh-oh-oh, oh, uh-oh, oh

They love me when I’m home, but I’m never there
We like it here, but it’s better there
We like it here, but it’s better there
Yeah, we like it here, but it’s better there
Oh-oh-oh-oh-oh, oh, uh-oh, oh, la, la, la, la
Oh-oh-oh-oh-oh, oh, uh-oh, oh, la, la, la, la (Oh)
