RKZ – “‘Jhenés Song”

Cover, Freestyle, Hip Hop, R&B, Rap, UK Asian

Score: N/A

RKZ delivers his new ode “Jhené’s Song” in the form of a response video directly targetting the object of his stalkerish tendencies, Jhené Aiko (we wonder why). Taking (and slightly reworking) the instrumental and melodies from Ms Aiko’s excellent “3:16am” RKZ does a solid job, and the singer in question has already voiced her approval on Twitter (she probably downloaded it here for free, too, but you’re too slow and will have to wait until RKZ’s new mixtape is released next month). Just remember, kids, restraining orders ain’t cool. (Posted by Jesal)

LYRICS:

(Intro)
Out of place, out of space and time,
wide awake, out of papers, I am..

(Verse One)
What do you, really take me for?
Do you see this and hate me more?
Can I be, what I used to be to you?
Can I be, something out of here?
Out of us, where I can see you clear,
’cause you ain’t me, and I’m not you now..
But I’m wondering if this is just me,
trying to believe I had you.
You were still right here but now,
it’s like you’re someone else, oh.
I’m wondering, do you still, think I’m yours,
or even could be, yeah..
Could I be? Should I be..

(Break)
..much more
(I’m right back where I was before)
I should be so much more to you
(But I’m not alone, you said take my hand and we go)

(Chorus)
(And we go, and I hope,
that we don’t overdose, ’cause we don’t,
no we don’t, ever know, when we have had enough)
I do not feel the fear of falling, I wanna fly.
If that don’t go well, then I will..
..but what if it don’t? I’ll be right where I was before.

(Verse Two)
This was never meant to be easy,
everything we did, I’d never make it so you’d need me,
trying to convince you, you could be whatever.
And you would always cry, I say I’d help you – never.
Make it so I’m bad, tryna be anything but,
and now I made you stronger.. so what?
Everything you loved and wanted here to stay,
now I’m tryna look at you in a different way.
And now I’m tryna look at you like I don’t even,
even wanna be another, dude that’s gone and fucked you up,
and made you feel like you don’t even,
need to be right here and I just wanna make you happy,
through the pain and the shame and the fame,
and it’s all fucked up.. somewhere

(Break)
(I’m right back where I was before)
(But I’m not alone, you said take my hand and we go)

(Chorus)
(And we go, and we go, and I hope,
that we don’t overdose, ’cause we don’t,
no we don’t, ever know, when we have had enough)
(And we go, and we go, and I hope,
that we don’t overdose, ’cause we don’t,
no we don’t, ever know, when we have had enough)
