lyrics

Leave a light on for me, yeah,
Leave a light on for me, yeah,
Leave a light on for me, yeah,
Leave a light on for me, yeah…

Verse 1: (Nari)
Cold city your lights pretty, you never sleep
Cold city, your life gritty, you never leap
I disappear, like I ain’t a part of it,
There can be no heart in it, what’s a heart without a beat
Beat, beat
Beat, like a life line, life like the past 9,
9 like the bullet that struck my brother,
So I pray for him one time,
So I pray for them all time,
Then I push off, and push on,
Hustle never stop coz I’m charged like protons,
Positively prone to condone phenomenons,
Definitely prone to dethrone the last con
City side-eye, too low to high brow,
So I cast mine, too high to stand down

Chorus: (Ashe)
Leave a light on for me, till I find what I need
Just a leave a light in for me, in case I…
Leave a light on for me, in case I don’t find peace
Just a leave a light on for me, in case I…

Verse 2 (Nari)
See I, I make a haste, time I don’t waste,
The ones who talk snitch, all ride the rat race,
They step to save face, I walk the 10 pace
I shoot from the lip, not hip, it’s quick grace
Never fade to black, no stars to light ways
Only street lights, console the dark days,
All made up, night shifts and night daze,
Lookin different woke up with eyes glazed,
Sometimes, the city, yes she lie to me,
I try to solve the puzzle of catastrophe
Not that she deserve to be reserve with me
I gave her all my love, so I’m obliged to be
Humble even when I rumble, trouble always find me
Stumble through the bustle, coz I’m leading blindly
Simply stated, hungry, some don’t feed you kindly
So I fill my pots and cups and portion wisely

Chorus (Ashe)
Leave a light on for me, till I find what I need
Just a leave a light in for me, in case I…
Leave a light on for me, in case I don’t find peace
Just a leave a light on for me, in case I…

Verse 3 (Nari)
Cold city your lights pretty, you never sleep
Cold city, your life gritty, you never leap
I disappear, like I ain’t a part of it,
There can be no heart in it, what’s a heart without a beat
Beat, beat
Beat, like a life line, life like the past 9,
9 like the bullet that struck my brother,
So I pray for him one time,
So I pray for them all time,
Then I push off, and push on,
The hustle never stop coz I’m charged like protons,
Positively prone to condone phenomenons,
Definitely prone to dethrone the last con
City side-eye, too low to high brow,
So I cast mine, too high to stand down

Chorus (Ashe)
Leave a light on for me, till I find what I need
Just a leave a light in for me, in case I…
Leave a light on for me, in case I don’t find peace
Just a leave a light on for me, in case I…

(add lib)
Cairo , leave a light on for me yeah
Toronto, leave light on for me yeah
East Side leave light on for me yeah
West Side leave light on for me yeah
North Side leave light on for me yeah
South Side leave light on for me yeah
World Wide leave light on for me yeah
