Measure of a Man Lyrics

 

Measure of a Man Lyrics by FKA twigs (feat. Central Cee)

 

Nobody feels the pain behind the love you show
Nobody feels the burden that is yours alone
If when the morning comes you’re not with me
I know that you’ll return with destiny

Only you can truly understand
The measure of a hero is the measure of a man
(I wanna kiss it better, the measure of a man)
The measure of a man
(I wanna kiss it better, the measure of a man)

Your body bears the scars of every man I know
So softly I wanna kiss it better, the scarlet letter
To me you don’t belong
If when the morning comes you’re not with me (Destiny)
I know that you’ll return with destiny

Only you can truly understand
The measure of a hero is the measure of a man
(I wanna kiss it better, the measure of a man)
The measure of a man
(I wanna kiss it better, the measure of a man)

It’s the manners that make a man
But the hammers that break a man
Damn, they wanted to see me broke
But I flipped the script and I broke the pen
Young and wealthy
Don’t let it overwhelm me
I still give thanks
Still can’t tell me
Nothin’, the system failed me
I still bounced back
I run this ting, got a lot of endurance
What you know about drastic measures?
I married the hustle
Me and the game like Harry and Meghan
Some man in my hood too jealous
Why d’you think that we carry a weapon?
Take time and trust the process
Life’s a game of chess, not checkers
Told bro that “You gotta stop stressin’
Gotta stop thinkin’ you won’t get through it
It’s all in your mind
I failed a couple of times
I got up and got back to it”

Only you can truly understand
The measure of a hero is the measure of a man
The measure of a man

Only you can truly understand
The measure of a hero is the measure of a man
The measure of a man
