The LaFontaines – Up Lyrics

Up by The LaFontaines

Getting busy, I’m blessed, life on the road
I’ve been riding round the city, making waves on my own
I’ve been causing plenty havoc, though my pockets are bare
With just a kick and a snare, I lift you off of your chair

I’m coming up, fuck a 9/5, feeling alive
I’ve been 0 to a hundred, since I put it in drive
I’ve been cautious, overthinking like I’m waiting on green
Since I stepped on the scene, I’ve been steady chasing a dream

I’m coming up, tell me I’m wrong, I’m living right
I’ve been stepping up on losers, to gain me some height
Lace up my Docs, kick in any stereotypical box
If you try and serve me something, it’s a whiskey on rocks

I’m coming up, make it a double, or make it disappear
Only here for the moment, grab me that souvenir
I’m on a level so high
They can’t pull me out the sky, man it’s really do or die

I’m coming up

(Chorus: Neil & Jamie)
(Hey!) We’re only going up
So why you getting low?
You say you had enough?
You gotta make your own way
A different kinda luck
Another rule to break
You never have enough
Until you get your own way

(Verse 2: Kerr)
Truth told, I’m feeling the vibe more than ever
I made my mother a promise I’ll be sure to deliver
A little nipper, with dreams bigger than most
Steady trying to up my portion, when my pockets are froze – closed shut

I’m coming up, so ring the alarm loud
Catch me falling from the sky, just to land on a cloud
I’ve been cursing out the heavens, they’re ignoring my plea
Cause I’ve been on the grind daily, steady working for free

I’m coming up though, like it’s a must so, we on
Clock ticking and the Doc says, (patients /patience) are gone
I’ve got the remedy they asking for, triple the dose
And I just say it on a record, then we mix it in post

I’m coming up, like elevators to the top flight
Like I jumped a division, and got the green light
I’m on a level so high
They can’t pull me out the sky, man it’s really do or die

I’m coming up

(Chorus: Neil & Jamie)
(Hey!) We’re only going up
So why you getting low?
You say you had enough?
You gotta make your own way
A different kinda luck
Another rule to break
You never have enough
Until you get your own way

(Verse 3: Kerr)
Now I be short on my time, so let me make it so clear
I’ve been out on my own, I found nothing to fear
I keep it running like hot water, wherever I go
And I’ve been down on my luck, but I ain’t never been low, It’s like…

(Chorus: Neil & Jamie)
(Hey!) We’re only going up
So why you shooting us down
Like you’ve been low before
(Hey!) We’re only going up
You know we’ll never be stopped
You know we’ll never be stopped
You know we’ll never be stopped
You know we’ll never be
