Dermot Kennedy

"Temptation (BBC Radio 1 Future Sounds)"

[Pre-Chorus]
This just the way I feel
Mind's been racing so long, yeah
It’s just no way to deal
With these problems alone

[Chorus]
I really can't take it no more
I've been fighting temptations, my Lord
I’m young and I'm restless
And I really can't help it
I never felt selfish before
I've been living so reckless, I know
Tell me Lord, can you help me?
I said Lord, can you help me?

[Verse 1]
Now everybody got problems, yeah
But wouldn't know what way to solve 'em
I really came up from the bottom
Strugglin', my momma on her last dollar
Hustlin' and I’ve been puttin’ in these hours
Government been tryna take away what's ours
Really all about the money and the power
I just wanna see my people empowered
Tell me how we gon’ shape this vision
Complainin' all day, but in the same condition
If you wanna make change, it's gon' take commitment
People enslaved by they religion
Can’t emancipate them from the mental prisons
Seen through optics transform to wisdom
Watch me use my prophets, get 'em all to listen
I've been on a mission, ah

[Chorus]
I really can't take it no more
I've been fighting temptations, my Lord
I'm young and I'm restless
And I really can't help it
I never felt selfish before
I've been living so reckless, I know
Tell me Lord, can you help me?
I said Lord, can you help me?

[Verse 2]
Now everybody got vices, yeah
But wouldn't know what good advice is
Until they leave 'em lifeless
Another mama cryin', it's another crisis
Lord knows we just tryna live righteous
Are you willin' just to make the sacrifices?
I know we can't continue livin' like this
And I'll never sell my soul 'cause that's priceless
Tell me how we gon' make a livin'
Hustle on the block, who gon' save the children?
Man it's all a plot and I'm just revealin'
The media just tryna make a villain
I just take the pain and paint a picture
Voices in my head, I hear the whispers
When I feel this way, inhale the swisher
Or I sip the liquor, ah

[Chorus]
I really can't take it no more
I've been fighting temptations, my Lord
I'm young and I'm restless
And I really can't help it
I never felt selfish before
I've been living so reckless, I know
Tell me Lord, can you help me?
I said Lord, can you help me?

[Pre-Chorus]
This just the way I feel
Mind's been racing so long, yeah
It's just no way to deal
With these problems alone

[Chorus]
I really can't take it no more
I've been fighting temptations, my Lord
I'm young and I'm restless
And I really can't help it
I never felt selfish before
I've been living so reckless, I know
Tell me Lord, can you help me?
I said Lord, can you help me?

[Chorus]
I really can't take it no more
I've been fighting temptations, my Lord
I'm young and I'm reckless
And I really can't help it
I never felt selfish before
I've been living so reckless, I know
Tell me Lord, can you help me?
I said Lord, can you help me?
(Ooh ooh)
