Sam Fender Tiktok Song Lyrics

I remember the sickness was forever
I remember snuff videos
Cold Septembers
The distances we covered
The fist fights on the beach
The Bizzies round us up
Do it all again next week
Embryonic love
The first time that it scarred
Embarrass yourself for someone
Crying like a child
And the boy who kicked Tom’s head in
Still bugs me now
That’s the thing it lingers
And claws you when you’re down

I was far too scared to hit him
But I would hit him in a heartbeat now
That’s the thing with anger
It begs to stick around
So it can fleece you of your beauty
And leave you spent with nowt to offer
It makes you hurt the ones who love you
You hurt them like they’re nothing
You hurt them like they’re nothing
You hurt them like they’re nothing

See I spent my teens enraged
Spiralling in silence
And I armed myself with a grin
Cause I was always the f^^kin’ joker
Buried in their humour
Amongst the white noise and boys’ boys
Locker room talkin’ lads’ lads
Drenched in cheap drink and snide f^^s
A mirrored picture of my old man
Oh God the kid’s a dab hand
Canny chanter, but he looks sad
God, the kid looks so sad
God, the kid looks so sad

She said the debt, the debt, the debt
So I thought about shifting gear
And how she wept and wept and wept
Luck came and died round here

I see my mother
The DWP see a number
She cries on the floor encumbered
I’m seventeen going under
I’m seventeen going under
I’m seventeen going under
I’m seventeen going under
I’m seventeen going under

Over a combination of guitars, piano and saxophone, Fender describes the struggles he had when he was 17. He said: “17 is when all the challenges begin: you’re not a baby, but you’re definitely not an adult (turns out that bit takes a lot longer than you think).”

This is the title track of Sam Fender’s second album, which is centered on the North Shields singer-songwriter growing up and coming of age. “I’ve had a lot of time to look back and there’s a lot of things I’ve processed, stuff that happened when I was in my late teens and early 20s,” he told Apple Music. “I was carrying a lot of pain around, and with writing this [album], I’ve been able to put some of those things to bed – which has been very, very humbling and good for the soul. I feel like it is a celebratory record, and it’s full of hope and full of yearning. It’s a triumph over adversity.”

Fender’s longtime friend Bramwell Bronte produced the song. Bronte produced all the tracks on Fender’s debut album, Hypersonic Missiles.

Fender debuted the song live on August 13, 2020 in Newcastle.

I see my mother
The DWP see a number
She cries on the floor encumbered
I’m seventeen going under
