Allday Lyrics


"If Not Now, When?"

My Grandmother always says much wants more
That means no matter how much you got you just want more
I got my first gold plaque I was happy for a second
Then I started thinking of my next one
I guess the key is press on, the car was hot as Szechuan
Driving in a lemon like my name was Ayreton
At Double Dragon restaurant, a city somewhere else in time
I leave clues for those looking they are there to find
But it’s a world where the genuine are left behind
The cold blooded ones, they know how to get their shine
A snake eats its tail, a baby enters as an elder leaves
Sail in ships and your tears made the seven seas
I spit the melodies and words that are sent to me
Teeth yellowy mouth like a lemon tree
Just a soul on a trip but we didn’t pack
Just a soul in a body that I’m giving back

I say if not now, when?
Took you for granted back then
My Grandma used to say
Don’t put off ’til tomorrow what you could do today
Been away now for a month of Sundays
When I see you again it’s a party
Stuff a dragon head hang it in the hallway
Never forget we came a long way

Living on borrowed time can I have an extension?
Then god sent me back down that’s astral rejection
I’ve seen drugs ruin everything that family convention
Yeah, I know I’m walking with an angels protection
I told her I’m not a catholic but I know my angels
She said I’m not beautiful but I know my angles
These loves immortalised in all the songs I write
Thanks for the inspiration even though it wasn’t right
Over waves to Australia on a Qantas flight
I was on the wave of doubt, that I often ride
Far from home, since I cutback it’s another zone
Ya’ll rappers need to cutback before your money’s blown
Call the label on the money phone ask them for another loan…
And they hung up the phone
Did it without a cosign, but they still steal my essence
My mortgage says Tom, I couldn’t ring my parents
I hope you’re dreams come true like there’s a genie present
You won’t know what wished for until you get it
Fame’s a hot seat don’t let your blood boil
I keep my heart in the fridge, don’t let my heart spoil
I saw a flower grow up from the hard soil
These rappers tell you leave your girl because they aren’t loyal
And trade her pancake ass for a bubble butt
All the xans and double cups’ll they got you muddled up
You’ll end up all alone, chasing another rush
Pussy and drugs, a double dragon that’s hard to snuff
I stay with the ones who were there for me
I know there’s crocs in the water like The Territory
I know there’s good people around everywhere surely
But sometimes it feels it just feels like Where’s Wally
I couldn’t get it through my thick Irish head
That I deserve happiness but last night I said

I say if not now, when?
Took you for granted back then
My Grandma used to say
Don’t put off ’til tomorrow what you could do today
Been away now for a month of Sundays
When I see you again it’s a party
Stuff a dragon head hang it in the hallway
Never forget we came a long way
