Central cee – Cold shoulder

Cold shoulder
Cold shoulder

[Intro]

God knows my intention, I sin for the sake of progress

Got a big heart when it comes to my family (You are now listening to Young Chencs)

But in the streets my heart is the coldest

My personal life ain’t right but I’m putting this first so I won’t lose focus

‘Member I needed a helping hand, reached out and I got cold shoulders

 

[Verse 1]

They already know I can rap, the mandem trap, I can do that too

I-I picked up the phone, I heard some terrible news that’ll ruin your mood

They made some change and forgot their roots

I made somе change and picked up the young Gs

Took thеm shoppin’ and copped them shoes

This hoe forgot she got fucked

You need a reminder you’re not brand new

I should’ve kicked that one to the curb

There and then, but I’m not that rude

Had-had some hoes back when I was broke

They wanna come home, but I got no room

So many years I slept on the sofa

They don’t know the half, they got no clue

Huh? Said I was a “One hit wonder”, I took that shot and I followed it through

Don’t worry ’bout hollerin’ chicks

Get rich, they’ll switch and holla at you

Sat in the trap, turned one into two

But that ain’t what I wanted to do

The fame get a bit too much sometimes

Fan-page tryna follow the goons

Fan-page tryna follow my pups

The fans love me and I love them too

‘Cah Cench ain’t better than none

La-last time I let that slide

But this time I ain’t gonna let that run

They made, they made a diss track

That shit was too whack to get a response, huh

It’s sad ‘cah I love my hood where I’m from

But that place ain’t where I belong

Clean up the scene, I don’t need no mop

Pull up your jeans, all I need is slops

Don’t believe in greed, I don’t need a lot

Let my Gs all eat off the cream on top

Remember the floor went peelin’ off and damp all over the ceilin’

We trap for a positive reason

All ’cause the rap weren’t bringin’ no Ps in

 

[Chorus]

God knows my intention, I sin for the sake of progress

Got a big heart when it comes to my family

But in the streets, my heart is the coldest

My personal life ain’t right but I’m putting this first so I won’t lose focus

‘Member I needed a helping hand, reached out and I got cold shoulders

 

[Verse 2]

I stay tryna better my life, but I got pain that I can’t get off my mind

I can’t get rid of my demons, all of my feelings, I kept inside

I’d never sell my soul or switch on bro in desperate times

My angel there on my shoulder tellin’ me “No”

I’m bipolar, no Jekyll and Hyde

I gotta think twice what come out my mouth these days ‘cah I know I got a voice

I’m the head of my family now, I gotta get in my bag, I got no choice

I’m bait, I gotta roll safe, there’s a few places that I’d rather avoid

I made it, I might have a baby, I don’t mind a daughter, I’d rather a boy

Bro-bro could’ve went pro in the field, but he broke his Achilles heel

The other, the other day it was free K-Trap, not the one from Gipsy Hill

Fuck a eighty-twenty, I told them “Send me a fifty-fifty deal”

From Bush to Beverly Hills

I’m lookin’ at bro like “Look at the shit we’ve built”

O-OT, I seen a man smoke crack on a Red Bull can

I’m throwin’ my Ws up like Wu-Tang Clan, I’m a method man

Ask my mum what I’m like, she’ll say that I’m selfless and I give back

If you ask my ex what I’m like, she’ll say I’m a narcissist and a sociopath (Came a long way)

Came a long way, still got a very long way to go

Just a yute, I was confused when I saw my family takin’ coke

‘Cah I understand it now that I’m grown

Real trap boy, I don’t play with my nose

Just the way that it goes

I can’t judge them when it made me dough

 

[Chorus]

God knows my intention, I sin for the sake of progress

Got a big heart when it comes to my family

But in the streets, my heart is the coldest

My personal life ain’t right but I’m putting this first so I won’t lose focus

‘Member I needed a helping hand, reached out and I got cold shoulders

 

[Outro]

From Bush to Beverly Hills

I’m lookin’ at bro like “Look at the shit we’ve built”

Said I was a “One hit wonder”

I took that shot and I followed it through
