Emeli Sandé – Kingdom Coming lyrics
[Intro: Emeli Sandé]
Ho-oh, ho-oh, woah
Ho-oh, ho-oh, woah
Ho-oh, ho-oh, woah

[Verse 1: Emeli Sandé]
Daddy been cleaning windows
Daddy been shining shoes
Daddy's a taxi driver
Driving all night surviving on a couple hours sleep in the afternoon
Daddy's so home sick
Twenty years past, Daddy's job and still no promotion

[Hook 1: Emeli Sandé]
Fuck that, Daddy
You're a king and the kingdom's coming, no more running
Fuck that, Daddy
You're a king and the kingdom's coming, no more running
Fuck that, Daddy
You're a king and the kingdom's coming, no more running

[Verse 2:Emeli Sandé]
Mommy been lighting candles
Mommy been saying prayers
Mommy don't think she can handle
No more thugs or thieves or dogs or sharks or grizzly bears
Mommy's so fed up
Four-night shifts in a row but the debt won't let up

[Hook 2: Emeli Sandé]
Fuck that, Mummy
You're an angel, and this ain't no place, for an angel
Fuck that, Mummy
You're an angel, and this ain't no place, for an angel
Fuck that, Mummy
You're an angel, and this ain't no place, for an angel
Fuck that, Mummy
You're an angel, and this ain't no place, for an angel
Fuck that, Mummy
You're an angel, and this ain't no place, for an angel

[Verse 3: Emeli Sandé]
And I know she loved to travel
Take a picture in the album
But that's something come and gone
And the kids need uniforms
And I know he loved to hold her
I mean really get to know her
But that's something come and gone
And the kids need uniforms

[Hook 3: Emeli Sandé]
Fuck that, Daddy
You're a king and the kingdom's coming, no more running
Fuck that, Mummy
You're an angel, and this ain't no place, for an angel
Fuck that, Daddy
You're a king and the kingdom's coming, no more running
Fuck that, Mummy
You're an angel, and this ain't no place, for an angel

[Bridge: Wretch 32]
I pray you get home safe
I pray your date of birth, to come boat to those cold gates
I pray you don't lose faith, pray you don't lose faith
Life begins at 40 momma, I pray you see old age
I've seen you go to work and come home and go to work
And not moan about your worth
Because there's nothing in your purse
But that money don't define you
Plus, you hate being lied to
That's probably why there's no fella beside you
But besides that, I'm beside you
Hospital bedside, thinking how the fuck can I [retired?] you
There's no quittin', there's no quittin'
What good's a fire in the booth if I could burn with those lyrics
Clock's tickin' and it's getting hard for me
They just said my mother's got heart disease
Man, I swear I felt that in my artery
If we could swap I'd give you every part of me
Every lesson that you taught me was priceless
I mean it's funny how you add value when you're a minus
Corned beef sandwich for dinner when we were rice -less
Had that shit time after time, I guess it's timeless
The candles stayed lit when the electric gave in
I kept our fire burning, mom, we never gave in
And if the kingdom's coming man it's best waiting
'Cause I ain't leaving your side, it's gonna be a long night

[Hook 3: Emeli Sandé]
Fuck that, Daddy
You're a king and the kingdom's coming, no more running
Fuck that, Mummy
You're an angel, and this ain't no place, for an angel
Fuck that, Daddy
You're a king and the kingdom's coming, no more running
Fuck that, Mummy
You're an angel, and this ain't no place, for an angel

[Outro: Emeli Sandé]
Kingdom coming
Don't you lose your heart right now 'cause kingdom coming
Don't you dare give up right now 'cause kingdom coming
Don't you lose [?] 'cause kingdom coming
I know you been down sometimes but kingdom coming
Don't you dare get down right now 'cause kingdom coming
Don't you dare give up right now 'cause kingdom coming
I can't see the lane right now 'cause kingdom coming
Kingdom's coming
Kingdom's coming
Don't you dare give up right now 'cause kingdom coming
Don't you lose [?] over kingdom coming
Don't you dare give up right now 'cause kingdom coming
Don't you lose your heart right now 'cause kingdom coming
I know you get down sometimes but kingdom coming
Don't you dare get down right now 'cause kingdom coming
I can't see [?] kingdom coming
Don't you dare give up right now 'cause kingdom coming
