Alkaline – Hard Tackle Lyrics


(Intro)
Life’s so crazy
Life’s so f**king crazy
Man, they used to think I’d never glow up
Glow up
Life’s so crazy
Life’s so f**king crazy
Man, I did a tell more up

(Chorus)
That’s why me say hard tackle, hard tackle
Hard tackle, hard tackle
Life everyday is a hard battle
But mama can’t feed pon salt mackerel
Me a free myself from all shackles
Hard tackle, hard tackle
Hard tackle, hard tackle
Don’t ease up, no make nobody stop you
Right now we young and we unstoppa-
Unstoppable, that means dem can’t stop you

(Verse 1)
Ghetto youth, you haffi deh pon your guard
Worse when you make it inna the upper echelon as an underdog
Dem see your car and a wonder hard
See life a change fi you and a say you fi deh inna the morgue
The system weh we grow up inna a fraud
Dem shoot the bloodclaat man fi nothing, him just inna him yard
And dem a wonder why the crime so mad
Dem make anybody sin, all make the Devil waan fi do a record

(Bridge)
I’m not the same old me
Me know it a kill dem fi see mi chains pon me
Me been through a lot, see nuff people change pon me
Do a lot for dem, but dem no do the same for me

(Chorus)
That’s why me a say hard tackle, hard tackle
Hard tackle, hard tackle
Quick fi buss your face with a glass bottle
But mama can’t feed pon salt mackerel
Me a free myself from all shackles
Hard tackle, hard tackle
Hard tackle, hard tackle
Don’t ease up, no make nobody stop you
Right now we young and we unstoppa-
Unstoppable

(Verse 2)
Hey, tell dem say fi lock chat, say fi lock chat, say fi lock chat
So much time me make dem nyam dem words and haffi stop chat
Still waan make the Forbes, maybe one day hit the jackpot
Probably star in a movie, me know mi fans dem woulda watch that
It used to f**king burn me when dem talk ’bout me no that hot
Inna mi early stage, likkle before me get the matte black
Now that me a soar the pussy dem waan take back dem chat
True dem see say a the prettiest girls dem a give me slop top
I don’t know
If me nah go hard, then I don’t go
Since dem say dem ago make it dem duty fi make sure I don’t grow
Who dem think dem is? I don’t know
If me waan go fast, me go fast; If me waan go slow, then I go slow

(Bridge)
I’m not the same old me
Me know it a kill dem fi see mi chains pon me
Me been through a lot, see nuff people change pon me
Do whole heap for dem, but dem no do the same for me

(Chorus)
That’s why me a say hard tackle, hard tackle
Hard tackle, hard tackle
Life everyday is a hard battle
But mama can’t feed pon salt mackerel
Me a free myself from all shackles
Hard tackle, hard tackle
Hard tackle, hard tackle
Don’t ease up, no make nobody stop you
Right now we young and we unstoppa-
Unstoppable, that means dem can’t stop you

(Verse 3)
Me used to wait up every night for mi mother, eventually me fall asleep
She used to work overtime pon overtime fi make sure me get mi things (believe that)
And now a my time fi take care of her, me ago buy all, everything she need
Me done see the game everybody a play, and now me decide me nah go ease up

(Outro)
That’s why me say hard tackle, hard tackle
Hard tackle, hard tackle
Life everyday is a hard battle
But mama can’t feed pon salt mackerel
Me a free myself from all shackles
Hard tackle, hard tackle
Hard tackle, hard tackle
Don’t ease up, no make nobody stop you
Right now we young and we unstoppa
