Headie One – Breathing Lyrics

Breathing Lyrics by Headie One

I’ve been through dark times, I’ve had some dark thoughts
I guess we’re just some niggas with some fuckin’ dark hearts
Look into my eyes and you can see my soul leavin’
Nigga, I ain’t livin’, I’m just fuckin’ breathin’
I been through dark times, I’ve had some dark thoughts
I guess we’re just some niggas with some fuckin’ dark hearts
Look into my eyes and you can see my soul leavin’
Nigga, I ain’t livin’, I’m just fuckin’ breathin’
Been through dark times, I’ve had some dark thoughts
Just some niggas with some fuckin’ dark hearts
Look into my eyes and you can see my soul leavin’
Turn, turn, turn, yo

Boogie was the first one his age to go grip it (One)
Sanje been in jail for three years, ain’t had a visit (One)
SJ went through his whole trial and kept it trillest (One)
But when it’s time for sentencing, they claimin’ that he snitchin’ (Turn, turn, turn)
I guess they’ll do anything to numb down the litness (One)
What’s to expect out here when your whole team winnin’? (Why?)
We’re just drillers tryna make a different way of living (Turn)
Them niggas dissin’, but’ll kill to be in this position (Told me turn)
This life that we livin’, you can make the wrong decision (Told me turn)
Then have to spend longer than you live, stuck in prison
Them letters to your brodie tellin’ stories, reminiscin’ (Suh)
You get the wrong ship out, they might lose you to the system (Real talk)
Everything that my Pops once told me, I should’ve listened (One)
Was a little nigga thinkin’ I could trust my intuition (One)
Them sentences for rapists and them dealers should be different (Turn)
I guess that depends on what the colour of your skin is (Real talk)
Ever sat back in the dock and felt that pain from all your peoples? (Suh)
You think we like being ’round them crack pipes and them needles? (Suh, suh, suh)
Staring at this dirty money all the fiends will give you (Ah)
Thinkin’ “Either me or them”, this money payin’ for my dinner, One (Turn, turn, told me turn, told me turn)

Look into my eyes and you can see my soul leavin’ (Told me turn, one)
Nigga, I ain’t livin’, I’m just fuckin’ breathin’ (One, yo)

I’m tryna right my wrongs (One)
The life so short, sometimes I’m feelin’ like this life is long (Turn, turn)
Shorty convinced that I don’t like my home, she say it smell like my cologne (Turn)
Still clear a thirty in my city, catch a flight, I’m gone (Turn, turn, turn, turn, ayy)
Sharing’s caring but some things I want is mine alone (Told me turn)
Because when the feds came, I done that time alone (Told me turn, ayy)
Give them a glimpse of my thoughts, they said it’s “Hopeful thinking” (One)
Thoughts turn to things, now they know what I was thinkin’ (Suh, suh, suh)
I was in custody (Suh), still was in love with me (Suh)
I bought myself roses (S-S-Suh), yeah, that’s double digits (S-S-S-S-Suh)
I can’t trust a woman when you know you’re nothing to them
Now the roof down on the tunnel, we got tunnel vision
