RAYE – Genesis. Lyrics

RAYE Genesis Lyrics

They say the 20s are the best years of your life
But I seem to be spending mine missing sunsets
‘Cause I’m busy on my phone observing everyone else
How I compare and obsess
Just me, my phone and these walls
And I’ve been sober for some months, but I can feel the demons waiting on my downfall
Since I’m so ugly and irrelevant
I’ve been losing friends as if I’m tryna get rid of them
I googled why I’m so desperate for validation and sedatives, huh
Calling men who don’t give a **** about me
Then when my mother called I pretend I’m busy
I’m tryna end up anywhere except from where I been
Curtains closed, bed bound, amphetamines
Mmm, and this devil on my shoulder, man, I’m tryna shake him off
My ex is on my timeline, it’s as if he’s showing off
My self esteem is Facetune and ring lights
My ego is conquering new heights
I think I need some
Do you need some?
Don’t we all need some light?
I think I need some

I lied, I don’t think, I know I need some
I need some light
Some sweet sunshine
To feel alright
Please let there be light

I see a sad little sinner in the mirror
The devil works hard like my liver
I don’t wanna be alive, but I don’t wanna die
A fistful of pills, you’re a nobody

Yeah, yeah
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
Yeah, yeah
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah

Bang bang, that’s depression at the door again
You know he’ll beat the door down till you let him in the room
Since you are already acquainted, you skip the foreplay
He grips you at the neck as you prepare to be screwed
You try to muster a flare to tell somebody you’re sinking
But anxiety is an index finger pressed to your lips
A whiskey bottle it whispers since you’re already bitter
A cocktail fit for a quitter
Come here and give me a kiss

I see a sad little sinner in the mirror
The devil works hard like my liver
I don’t wanna be alive, but I don’t wanna die
A fistful of pills and rivers in my eyes
I got nothing left to lose
Dear God in the sky
Hear my cry! Hear my cry!
When it’s too dark to see, let there be light
Let there be light
Let there be light

Yeah, yeah
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
Yeah, yeah
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah

Yes, I edit my pictures to make my waist look slimmer
And make my arse look bigger so that I’m someone you aspire to
Let me in your algorithm please
I know I’ll only be important if I’m someone you would like, follow, share and subscribe to
If you’re thirsty like me
Mix some pity with some self-hate
Stir it up, then add 12 ounces of rosé
That’s how I make the glass half empty and drink it down
Beneath the curse words and the insecurities, here lies a sorry little soul
And she doesn’t even know what to pray for
Still just a heartbroke bitch
But I traded the back of the nightclub I did for the bathroom floor
I wish I could call my ex
He would know just what to say
He don’t say nothing at all now
It brings a tear to my eye
The only thing I rely on him to do is stay declining my calls now

I see a sad little sinner in the mirror
The devil works hard like my liver
I don’t wanna be alive, but I don’t wanna die
A fistful of pills, and rivers in my eyes
I got nothing left to lose
Dear God in the sky
Hear my cry! Hear my cry!
When it’s too dark to see, let there be light
Let there be light
Let there be light

Little girls that have no self-esteem
A little boy without a father tries to find him in the streets
A girl I used to walk to school with took her life, now rest in peace
Fake democracy
Killing overseas
Killing ourselves
Suicide
Government lies
Discrimination
Hating ourselves
Why hope? Why keep going? Why try? Why?
Genesis 1, verse 3, I’ll dry my eyes
The only thing which darkness cannot coexist is the light

I see a sad little sinner in the mirror
The devil works hard like my liver
I don’t wanna be alive, but I don’t wanna die
A fistful of pills, and rivers in my eyes
I got nothing left to lose
Dear God in the sky
Hear my cry! Hear my cry!
When it’s too dark to see, let there be light
Let there be light
Let there be light

Yeah
I want that light, Lord
Please
