Sinner
June Haze Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

Oh lord you know I′m a sinner
Heart been cold I'm villain
Ghetto gospel oh what a feeling
All this hurt done made me appealing

Write my name in all of these lights
Numb my pain I burn thru this life
Keep me sane I hurt and don′t cry
Paper planes are blurring my eyes

You know I feel more at home with the sinners
Corners mob with the villains
Woke up oh lord what a feeling
To live is to die & this is the beginning
Never gon switch for my brother I clip 'em
Harm my son and you end up missing
This is all true to the judge I was willing
Stick In the backpack we wasn't kidding
Now a nigga grown got a kid of my own
Infused with soul he a never be a victim
Grab my pole if this is your intention
Squeeze to the ending you know a nigga meant it
Born on the fences birth my defenses
Barefooted in the dirt or the trenches
So I built me a church understanding
Gotta be a wolf when a sheep is the standard

Oh lord you know I′m a sinner
Heart been cold I′m villain
Ghetto gospel oh what a feeling
All this hurt done made me appealing

Write my name in all of these lights
Numb my pain I burn thru this life
Keep me sane I hurt and don't cry
Paper planes are blurring my eyes

Cut my wings then I chase me some paper
Cold stare at a hater
Less fear how they made us
Always prepared for magus
Sinners in the back all quiet & dangerous
Keep that fire equivalent of angels
Me and my guys we choose to be saviors
Family ties & loyal to who raised us uh
Line is drawn thru the storm to ya seed be the confidant
I came thru barefooted where the monsters are
I came up then I raised the bar
Lord knows
I′m a sinner do whatever it takes
Drop you off at the pearly gates
I lost faith in the face that you kneel to pray
Amazing still made a way
This amazing grace
On pace I be on the way
& If it's drama it be on delay
Don′t believe in karma had hell to pay
Made a rack today off Melodies
Dodge felonies In New York streets
& More peace is all I need
Sit back blunt lit, sex back to back
Then relax in a New York greed
Both my feet to the ground
Eyes to the sky phone stuck on brb
Fix my crown & took that vow
Nigga I could never be a npc
Build that mound & pitch to the masses
Conjuring magic thru these beats & so you would have it
Cut thru the static
You got a sinners life on repeat

Oh lord you know I'm a sinner
Heart been cold I′m villain
Ghetto gospel oh what a feeling
All this hurt done made me appealing

Write my name in all of these lights
Numb my pain I burn thru this life




Keep me sane I hurt and don't cry
Paper planes are blurring my eyes
