Devlin – Gift & Curse lyrics

[Hook:]
You wanna see the best of me
You gotta see the worst of me
You wanna see the gift of me
You gotta see the curse of me
You gotta see the world I’ve seen
You gotta see the dreams I dreamed
Where nobody sees me at all,
The rise and fall.

[Verse:]
You'd have to see what I'd seen,
Be where I’d been, to have dreamed these dreams.
Be a teen on a uk street,
Scarred for your life, getting chased through the night,
Now the world’s getting ruthless.
You gotta ride out, everybody’s on a hype,
And the manors got stupid, so have I.
All you ever do is bring me down,
I’m living up to the name that you gave me tonight,
And now I'm signed.
It's like everybody wants me to live a lie.
I ain’t chirpy I'm dirty, I come from a place where the good die young,
And the bad die when it's their time.
This ain't a screw face,
Just know that my head’s inside two worlds so my new name’s two face.

[Hook:]
You wanna see the best of me
You gotta see the worst of me
You wanna see the gift of me
You gotta see the curse of me
You gotta see the world I’ve seen (world I've seen)
You gotta see the dreams I've dreamed (dreams I've dreamed)
Where nobody sees me at all (anymore)
The rise and fall.

[Verse:]
I've showed you the gift, let me show you the curse,
You get big, then vultures emerge,
And so called friends -tried poling- your bird
Once again, I gotta roll on the curb
And I try and live my life with morals,
But find myself in many more quarrels
So I seek salvation in words,
I'm Emily Rose, I got a gift and a curse,
The reason I flourished and grew
Might be the reason I feel malnourished and blue
I felt the pain of the world,
My arteries run to the chambers of hell
All I know is from a young man’s view,
I’ve seen some things so amazing as well,
Sometimes the grass is greener,
Sometimes it's quite hard to tell.

[Hook:]
You wanna see the best of me
You gotta see the worst of me
You wanna see the gift of me
You gotta see the curse of me
You gotta see the world I’ve seen (the world I've seen)
You gotta see the dreams I've dreamed (the dreams I've dreamed)
Where nobody sees me at all (anymore)
The rise and fall.

[Outro:]
Head in the sky, but my hands on the floor
-Hard, but this night, there's surprises in store, -
You gotta see the world I’ve seen
You gotta see the dreams I've dream
But nobody sees me at all, the rise and fall.
