Jaykae
1000 Nights
[Intro]
That's correct
In that central weekend, they were earlier removed for saying that
The police were under to a nuisance, but
I mean, I recall even, we had the police ring lights on him

[Verse 1: Jorja Smith]
His judgment's clouded as mine, nothing feels right
Wish he could run, but he's seeing blue lights
Knows this it is, thinking, "What if?"
More space in the sky, rep yourself for your life
Can't get past his migraine
Couple seconds back, he would have been okay
Wakin' up in bed to a nеw day
Reloadin' that new Jaykae, Ezrah, and Jorja Smith, feel likе there was a way
Wrong turn down a one-way
Drove too quick for the getaway
Aw, that fool said he left the gate open
Last line, dial silence 'til release day
Heavy on the mind when the heart breaks
Summit for the struggle and the dark days
Won't be home in a thousand nights
Wish you could just tell him it'll all be alright

[Chorus: Jorja Smith]
I know that I've tried every way that I could, oh
It's hard enough tryin' to prove everything that I should, oh
You've already lost a bet today, you can never find a way
A thousand nights, thinkin' all that you never did right
[Verse 2: Jaykae]
The judge just put him inside, nothing was right
Lost his job, so the money was tight
Left two kids and a mummy inside
Now daddy can't give no cuddles at night
Was a troublesome guy, hustlin' by
Everybody's raw, had enough of his lies
Always had Ps, now he's getting on top, and he ain't tryna lose the love of his life
Now he's juggling white
'Cause he's a man and he's got to provide
He's scared, but he's not gonna hide
Got something hot in the ride
Before the red lights, he's got to decide
The blue lights, the cops pullin' up to the side
Just tried doing wrongs for the right
I'll be home in a thousand nights
F**ked up, you ain't gotta tell me twice, trust

[Chorus: Jorja Smith]
I know that I've tried every way that I could, oh
It's hard enough tryin' to prove everything that I should, oh
You've already lost a bet today, you can never find a way
A thousand nights, thinkin' all that you never did right

[Verse 3: Jaykae]
The judge just threw in the book, shoe in the mud
Ain't got a clue what to do when he's short
Knees deep in, can't move when you're stuck
He had one last shot, it was due a bit of luck
So he grew a bit of bud, do it if you could
Better watch out if you do it in the hood
People can't stand when you're doin' alright
And some little pricks wanna ruin somethin' good
Fam', they ran in the house when his kids were asleep
Fam', this sh*t was deep
And the news that he just got rid of his crap, said, "Anything you get, you can keep"
And they slapped him up in front of his girl, cleaned up, never gave it a sweep
And he knew who he was, couldn't let sh*t slide, got mad and jumped into his Jeep
Now, I don't wanna prove myself, but sometimes I gotta go one step further than them
I don't wanna roll with them or smoke with them, I'm real when I heard they pretend
Sometimes you step outside of your house with no intention of servin' a ten
Lose it all, start searchin' again
F**ked up, feels like I'm cursed to the end, trust
[Chorus: Jorja Smith]
I know that I've tried every way that I could, oh
It's hard enough tryin' to prove everything that I should, oh, no
You've already lost a bet today, you can never find a way
A thousand nights, thinkin' all that you never did right

[Outro: Jorja Smith]
Wrong turn down a one-way
Two Js better than one J
Wrong turn down a one-way
Two Js better than one J
Wrong turn down a one-way
Two Js better than one J
Wrong turn down a one-way
Two Js better than one J
