Little Simz – Standing Ovation Lyrics

Little Simz Standing Ovation Lyrics, Standing Ovation Lyrics by Little Simz

Why the desperate need for an applause?
I’ll wait
Is she the GOAT here? Well, it’s safe to assume
Everybody panic when I step in the room
And I can feel that shit a mile off
Niggas is rapping about pieces
People are really dying, is that what’s needed?
I can’t save your soul you need Jesus
Tell me please
Why the desperate need to be remembered?
Everybody knowing what you’ve done
How far you’ve come
I’m guilty, it’s a little self-centred
People change when it’s about personal gain
I stay in my lane ’cause I’m not done with the checks
Give me what I deserve and not speak on the rest
Don’t know what has occurred, then do not aimlessly guess
It’s a gift and a curse to this pretty and blessed

(Blessed, blessed, blessed)
So blessed
Used to plug that £20 mic into the back of the Mac (Mac, Mac, Mac)
Just so you can hear my voice
Always knew this was my calling but I’m here by choice
And things change
Shit been dark for a minute I’m (Blessed)
Delirious, it’s hard to function on this winners time
Mouths to feed, my nigga

Scripts to read, my nigga
Double life, living overseas, my nigga, shit
Left home for it
Jasmine just had a daughter, man, she’s so gorgeous
Told me life is giving life and I’m so for it
Maybe one day
Nothing’s more important and family’s where the love stays
Dealing with society’s pressures is one thing
Let alone all of the problems that funds bring
But no stress
Understand it comes with the process
I follow my intuition ’cause it knows best
I’m so used to getting it on my own, yes
I know my people wanna see me win
I’ll never let you down
Standing ovation for the one who’s wearing the crown
I got royalty In my blood, I was born great
Don’t allow anyone to undermine your fate

You’ve awoken the fearless
High beams and lucid dreams
Don’t be so obsessed with me
You think you know what’s best for me
Take my energy, come to find there’s nothing left of me
Went from being small time to becoming my own entity
Went from being broke as fuck and trying to find identity
To buying the finer things and isolating memories
What is it I’m meant to be?

I think I need a standing ovation
Over 10 years in the game, I been patient
God has always told me to be myself
Let go and free yourself
Tell the truth, I shamed Satan
Know I gotta pave the way for the next generation
That’s coming up under me and I love to see it
Thought I was bluffing, didn’t see it it coming
Hold up, think this is cold? You ain’t see nothing
The glow up, all the discussing
But I don’t let it distract me
Load the pen up, cock it back and get to bussin’
Standing up to who? I make the scene lie down
Get it how I live it, how it bees right now
I got another 20 in the shit, I’m cemented
Take over businesses, tell the kids start investing
We built the pyramids, can’t you see what we are blessed with?

From the hieroglyphics to the hood lyricist
The priests the Imams
The Good Books you live with
The Rumi quotes
The elder sisters
The tribal mantras
The jazz players
Holistic doctors
Spiritual teachers
Doers and the Dulas
The protectors and the rulers
The kids of the future
The immortal soldiers
And the fearless protest-protesters
The motivation speakers
And the honest black leaders
The divine healers
The everyday low-paid believers
The overachievers in the shadow of the gate keepers
Came down to teach us

(Blessed, blessed, blessed)
Blessed, blessed, blessed)
(Blessed, blessed, blessed) All these trophy’s in the crib, got ’em sitting nice
(Blessed, blessed, blessed)
After all the hard work that we put inside
Everybody claim to be boss but I’m a different kind
Hate it or love it, we rise above it
