South East London Lyrics

Drivin' in my car like, mh
I don't wanna see you, yeah
Driving 'round your ends like nah
Man, I shouldn't be around here
Shouldn't be 'round
When I'm in, when I'm in South East
I shouldn't be here
I know, yeah, ahh

When in South East London
I was so convinced that you were dead to me, uh
'Til I drove down a high street
Now I can't stop seeing all these memories, uh
When in South East London
Drive past your house I see the lights on
I shouldn't be listening to sad songs
All the things we did are coming back to me, mh

There goes the bar that we first met in, goddamn it
Smoked a couple zoots then we zoned in the Blue Planet, ah
I hate that I do miss you
Eighteen young, dreaming everything was sick
And a couple years on
See you shit and I'm sick of it, ooh
I hate that I do

When in South East London
I was so convinced that you were dead to me, mh
'Til I drove down a high street
Now I can't stop seeing all these memories, uh
When in South East London
Drive past your house I see the lights on
I shouldn't be listening to sad songs
All the things we did are coming back to me, yeah (yeah)

Oh shit
I need to get the fuck out of here quick
Sometimes I wish that you didn't exist
Sometimes I wish that you didn't exist
Sometimes I wish that you would just admit
It was on you, not just something I did
Blue lights are flooding the streets where you live
I need to get out of South East London
Shit, skrrt

I'm never thinking of you
Until I rode through your ends, G
I bet you think of me too, oh no
I'm never thinking of you
Until I rode through your ends, G
I bet you think of me too, ahh

When in South East London
I was so convinced that you were dead to me, mh
'Til I drove down a high street
Now I can't stop seeing all these memories, uh
When in South East London
Drive past your house I see the lights on
I shouldn't be listening to sad songs
All the things we did are coming back to me

When in South East (ooh)
No, when in South East
Oh, when in South East
When in South East, London baby
Mh, when in South East
Yeah, when in South East
(Let me just ride it out here) when in South East
London, yeah
When in South East London

Mmh, yeah
Mmh, yeah
When in
