Blood Orange – Take It Back Lyrics

Take It Back Lyrics by Blood Orange (feat. Arca, Joba & Justine Skye)


[Blood Orange & Justine Skye:]
Started smirking, system broken
Dogs are barking on the terrace
Such a force, exchange my thought
Change, we’re tired, f--- that
Takin’ that down, drinkin’ that gin
Say it stands for all I am
Bless me father, moving backwards
Falling deeper on my classics
Make a statement, I lost my way
I used to say where I’m heading
Anyway, f--- that
Take it back, (Take it back) f--- that
I take it back, (Take it back) f--- that
I take it back, (Oh-oh, that) f--- that
I take it back, (I’d just take it back) f--- that
Yeah (But f--- that)
(Mm, but f--- that)

I’ve been f----- so the odds aren’t even
It’s time for freedom
Put us right back
All for you

[Arca:]
Vente para acá
Que ya no quiero esperar más a que me llames
Un día cualquiera en que te vi
Tu me has cachao’
No hay otra manera de decirlo
Tu me has cachao’
Papi, como tu no tienes idea

[Blood Orange & Arca:]
Started smirking, system broken (Me has cachao’)
Dogs are barking on the terrace (De una manera)
Such a force, exchange my thought
Change, we’re tired, f--- that
Takin’ that down, drinkin’ that gin
Say it stands for all I am

[JOBA:]
The skies remain broken, you can’t take back a bullet
That s--- will see right through it, one shot to make it through it
See, I’m a bit manic depressive, glad I didn’t do it
If not for you I would’ve, you and your family knew it
See we were both born different, science can’t weigh the spirit
I wish I called sooner, guess that’s my smoking gun
Discovered intuition with you aside an institution
Like you, I pick my truth, not sure what you believed in
But with you I’m something different, in you I find solution
What’s clear as day is dark as night, I cannot see s---
Back out with all my demons, blackout for all my reasons
My reflected image vanished in an instant
