Jordan Rakei – May lyrics

[Verse 1]
It was a dark night, when I heard the news
Rolled up my sleeves and walked
Like a landslide, overly abused
Yet told myself to call
Yes my mother, vaguely confused
She told me not to bawl
Bawl my eyes, ‘cause my eyes are red
With nothing left at all
So I gather, my composure
Head quickly for the door
And yet alarm bells ring, maybe not enough
Frequent the lady called
Called me, your grandmother, I loved her so much more
Than nobody else, left on this earth
I’m in this state of raw

[Chorus]
As we marched through the madness
April was unclear
Suddenly it turned to sadness
Hopes turned into fears
And it was May, it was May, it was May, it was May

[Verse 2]
Guess it was a day, the day of reckoning
Six feet beneath the soil
Yet we held on, held each other tight
With standards soon to storm
‘Cause we’re here now, yes we’re here now
Moments like this are raw
It's my family tree planting it's roots stronger than before

[Chorus]
As we marched through the madness
April was unclear
Suddenly it turned to sadness
Hopes turned into fears
And it was May, it was May, it was May, it was May

[Bridge]
You left
You left
Without a chance to say
Without a chance to say goodbye at all
A chance to say goodbye at all

[Chorus]
As we marched through the madness
April was unclear
Suddenly it turned to sadness
Hopes turned into fears
And it was May, it was May, it was May, it was May
