Devlin – Yesterday's News lyrics

I've been here for a period of time
So long that my brain has gone delirious inside
I think back on all the years that I've survived
Holding back the tears that keep appearing in my eyes
But now I'm yesterday's news
And I'm tomorrow's promise but I've got my mince pies
Open wide trying to visualize devils in disguise
Devz I'm like Picasso cause I've been through every shade of blue
I'm walking under rainy skies but the flame never died
It stayed alive cause I was made to ignite
Like dynamite I'm from the cold with heavy night
I'm riding tight notice flows slip and slide
Like a tire in the snow cause there ain't no grip on ice

I'm cold in the Moscow when it's minus 29
So welcome to my life, I've cleverly designed minds
Lost souls just trying to live the higher life

I've been here so long through the sadness and the blues
But it's funny how I'm still here, when a lot of men are yesterday's news
I've been here so long through the sadness and the blues
But it's funny how I'm still here, when a lot of men are yesterday's news

Devlin, I'm dangerous I'm dead guys
And every week forgotten like yesterday's headlines
I've been through the blues just like Elvis's best time
But I ain't wearing suede shoes, I've just got the best rhymes
I refuse to die, you could attempt to kill me twenty times
But I'll still rise like I'm the day walker Wesley Snipes
So let me stick my teeth into the game and bleed it dry
When I witness blood seeking through his veins
This has become apparent I've got a talent that these other rappers haven't
So what would be the point of bloody keeping it in chains
I'm not sure what you think of other artists
But if we're talking about bars, you can't speak to me the same
So cut the conversation cause I've been lower rating
Taking anything I pleased taking off the aviation
To a better place in time better for leaving this place behind

I've been here so long, through the sadness and the blues
But it's funny how I'm still here, when a lot of men are yesterday's news
I've been here so long, through the sadness and the blues
But it's funny how I'm still here, when a lot of men are yesterday's news

I can't see no reason why I can't retain success
I just need a breather time away from all this stress
I can't see no reason why I can't retain success
I just need a breather time away from all this stress

I've been here so long, through the sadness and the blues
But it's funny how I'm still here, when a lot of men are yesterday's news
I've been here so long, through the sadness and the blues
But it's funny how I'm still here, when a lot of men are yesterday's news
