Sampha – What Shouldn't I Be? lyrics

[Verse 1]
You can always, you can always come home
I know you've been out there, out there on your own
Out there on your own
I wake up in my own skin again
Thinking all about me

[Chorus 1]
What shouldn't I be?
What shouldn't I be?
What shouldn't I be?
What shouldn't I be today?

[Verse 2]
Family ties
Put them 'round my neck
I'm walkin' 'round high
A ghost by my side
Challenges come
Challenges come and they go
I need someone to help me down
You can always come home
You can always come home
A mother always knows
I needed to grow
Just, it's all about you now

[Chorus 2]
And what shouldn't you be?
What shouldn't you be?
What shouldn't you be?

[Verse 3]
I should visit my brother
But I haven't been there in months
I've lost connection, signal
To how we were

What shouldn't I be? (What shouldn't I be?)
It's not all about me (What shouldn't I be?)
