Writing Playlist: I.O.U. by Dappy (No seriously…)

Welcome to the new and improved “Music That Inspires Me”, a few people have asked why the songs are “inspiring” when in reality they’re not, it’s more just music I write too, not necessarily music that inspires said writing. So with that in mind yeah this segment is going to be called “Writing Playlist”, over time I will go back and change previous ones to reflect this title but it may take a while to do them all.

So let’s get to it, the first song is I.O.U by Dappy (from N-Dubz) but before you’re like “LOLWHAT?” seriously just give it a listen, I was very VERY surprised that not only can he actually sing, the lyrics match how I am feeling at the moment and seem very relatable to other people too so yeah, just give it a listen. You can find the lyrics after the jump.

Oh I-I owe you, but how come it’s took me this long to say it?
‘Cause I have been hiding the truth
Didn’t think I’d let you in on this shit.
But you know I wouldn’t be here
If it wasn’t for you, you see I’ve tried this on my own,
Oh, I owe you, imagine if I never got to see you again.

I’m gonna bite my tongue next time that you’re speaking,
‘Cause you deserve the time a day.
I abused your kindness with my weakness,
And threw it in your face.
Way to go, way to go, what a joke, I’m a joke,
If only you could see how I feel.
You bite your tongue next time that I’m screaming,
See, I ain’t angry with you.

There’s no escape in what I’ve done,
I hope you hear these words,
Lord, strike me down if any one of them’s untrue.
You are the reason I am what I’ve become, I owe you.
Even though you don’t want nothing, I owe you one.

Hand on heart, I don’t think there’s any other way to say this.
But I admit being a prick didn’t do me any favors,
I mean, I’ve been called every name under the sun’s in my eyes,
But it feels pitch black inside,
I swear I put you through so much, now I couldn’t lie to you if I tried.
I admit acting a fool didn’t do me any favors,
Imagine if I never got to see you again.

I bite my tongue next time that you’re speaking,
‘Cause you deserve the time a day.
I abused your kindness with my weakness,
And threw it in your face.
Way to go, way to go, what a joke, I’m a joke,
If only you could see how I feel.
You bite your tongue next time that I’m screaming,
See, I ain’t angry with you.

There’s no escape in what I’ve done,
I hope you hear these words,
Lord, strike me down if any one of them’s untrue.
See, you are the reason I am what I’ve become, I owe you.
Even though you don’t want nothing, I owe you one.

Oh, oh

Just bleed with me, at least speak to me,
I’m so sorry if I’ve drained you out.
That’s why I love you,
And I hope you’re glad you made me finally say it
That I’m nothing without you.
Just tell me Imma see you again

I swear I’ll bite my tongue next time that you’re speaking,
‘Cause you deserve the time a day.
I abused your kindness with my weakness,
And threw it in your face.
Way to go, way to go, what a joke, I’m a joke,
If only you could see how I feel.
You bite your tongue next time that I’m screaming,
See, I ain’t angry with you.

There’s no escape in what I’ve done,
I, I hope you hear these words,
Lord, strike me down if any one of them’s untrue.
‘Cause you are the reason I am what I’ve become, I owe you.
Even though you owe me nothing, I owe you one.

I owe you.
But you owe me nothing, ‘cause I owe you one.
