Lowkey - Sunday Morning Lyrics

When the children see them, they point and laugh
When the children see them, they point and laugh
When the children see them, they point and laugh
But they don't know
When the children see them, they point and laugh
When the children see them, they point and laugh
When the children see them, they point and laugh
But they don't know
They don't know

She lost her son on a Sunday
Her memory's a bloodstain
The paper showed his young face
Who remembered his mum's name?
She sleeps with the blanket he was wrapped in as a child
He's not dead he's just napping for a while
She thinks backwards with a smile
On a clock, the hands stop
Can't accept all the plans
Lost sunny Sundays
Dancing to Vandross like:
I used to be such a bad bad boy
But I gave it up
When I fell in love (ooh)

Hold him close breathe the smell of his skin
Preserving every little thing
How can she ever begin
To move on?
Sunday mornings getting the groove on
His little hands wave, they [?]
She thinks he's coming in from school
Made his favourite dinner too
Sitting talking to an empty chair in the living room
Roams the street calling out things that no one listens to
Tried to treat her but
They thought solution was medicinal
And I don't think they'll ever comprehend it
Schizophrenic or a broken heart that can't be mended
Now she's sitting talking to herself
Where the bench is
Relatives wonder when she's coming to her senses

In her mind, he grew
Walked the passage to a man
They branded it as madness
Never planned to understand
She can't quite touch him
She imagines that she can
Holding the fabric to her face
Squeezing the blanket in her hand

Every Sunday morning, na ya ya
Every Sunday morning, na ya ya
Every Sunday morning, na ya ya
I dance with you
I dance with you

The day they came and took away his son was a Sunday
But he only woke up to the news on the Monday
More times he knows the situation ends one way
But he looks up searching for some hope in the sunrays
A year passed, two years passed, three years passed
Finds it hard to get over the shadow that the fear casts
Four years passed, five years passed, six, seven, eight passed
Still lays a hand for him when they play cards
His bedroom as it was, doesn't dare to touch a thing
Hums himself to sleep with the songs his son would sing, like:
Ain't no sunshine when she's gone
Only darkness every day
Ain't no sunshine now he's gone
Only darkness every day

You might see him by the betting shop
Asking for a spare pound
His shoes are getting tattered
And he's losing all his hair now
Sees him in his dreams but
He doesn't know his whereabouts
Sees him in the mirror
'Cause there's nothing else he cares 'bout
Sees him in the crowd but
The truth is, he isn't there
Goes after him and chases but
Every time, he disappears
Cars pass him by
And passengers just sit and stare
Talking to himself in a cruel world that didn't care

Every Sunday morning, na ya ya (ah ya ya)
Every Sunday morning, na ya ya
Every Sunday morning, na ya ya (hey)
I dance with you (oh)
I dance with you (ah)
Every Sunday morning, na ya ya (every Sunday morning, yeah)
Every Sunday morning, na ya ya (ah oh)
Every Sunday morning, na ya ya
I dance with you (oh)
I dance with you (ah)

I don't think I can do this on my own (no no no)
I don't think I can do this on my own (oh)
I don't think I can do this on my own
'Cause I need you
I need you
I don't think I can do this on my own
I don't think I can do this on my own
I don't think I can do this on my own
'Cause I need you (I need you)
I need you

  42. BoulderShoulders

    Lowkey u legend. I’ve only just discovered these bangers been living under a box these last few years. Nuff love and respect ❤️🛫

  43. E.Flores

    I don't have kids yet but this makes me think of my uncle and aunt that lost their 4 year old daughter to a freak firework accident and then years later their 18 year old son. He was loading a stranded car onto his tow truck when a box truck served into the shoulder and killed him. I could never understand what they feel nor would i ever want to because there is only one way to truly understand it and that's by losing your child. Shit make me cry thinking about it. I don't think you ever truly recover from it honestly. It changes a person.

  44. Gerardo Garcia

    I've watched this video plenty of times, and it makes me cry everytime. I couldn't imagine the loss of a child, this is a beautiful video and song. Mai Khalil and Lowkey have made and continue to make incredible music that have touched me in almost every emotional way. Peace & Love.

  57. Tony 707

    I lost my dad on a Sunday.
    Then my life just want the wrong way.
    Eviction notices piling up.
    Bills coming every other day.
    And mom found the bottle she tried to drink the pain away.
    And my brothers full of anger case he don’t know how to take the pain.
    So he takes it out on me and hurts but I love him anyway.
    He dropped out of school.
    And my sister did too.
    And now we gotta move cause the rent is over due.
    Now I’m doing things I know he wouldn’t want me too.
    Cause my moms still drinking and we’re running out of food.
    And I wear the same clothes to school, everyday it’s true.
    Getting laughed at up and down the
    halls cause the holes in my shoes.
    I remember the way his leather wallet smelled.
    And all the jokes he used to tell.
    His laugh could bring me back from hell.

  58. TomViolenceSA

    immmense respect to lowkey, as always

  59. UltimateMoralizer

    Awesome track. Real hip-hop about life. Salute. A lot of fake emcees from high focus and SBTV can learn something from Lowkey.

  60. Kwazy Cupcakes


  61. Dizmop

    A deep tune with very thoughtful lyrics and video but it like a drop of water in an ocean, Rap music is so competetive these type of sit down and listen tunes don't get noticed, Drill is killing it because it's a party vibe, I can't stand Drill but it get the kids attention, this sounds too "Head knod" good for a 90's album track no so good for the streets of today

  62. louise corbett

    Shash going to miss you kiddo 😪😥

  63. Abacus

    Lowkey: A master of the art. An inspiration.

  64. mind universe

    Max Respect from Portugal 👌💪❤️

  66. Aleksi Laiho

    Dear Lowkey. I hope, somehow, you will see this comment.

    You have the voice of the voiceless. People listen to you. Thanks to you people are more aware of what is happening in the world. But no one ever talks or makes music about Tibet.

    You cannot be against occupation of Palestine, illegal invasions of Afghanistan, Iraq, Yemen etc, if you don't also speak for all the oppressed people. Tibetans have been oppressed for since the 50's. Pretty much same as Palestinians. Why don't you speak your mind about Tibet? Another one is West Papua. Oppressed since '79.

    Please, speak for all of the oppressed. You have the voice that people listen to.


  67. konogomang

    We need more of this; soulful and meaningful, simply beautiful.

  68. steven goulding

  79. Emilio nemo

    Lowkey once mentioned in a song that his brother died, is this him? and his family? if so, that's beyond sad and heartfelt. I lost my niece 3 weeks ago and it took so long to have her funeral it happened this past weekend. She only lived for 5 hours after she was born. Carrying her casket like some parcel package from the train to the morgue and back again to her grace. Really messed with my head, I still can't get those images out of my head, been drinking alot since. And yet only recieve hate from people. Rip


    Emilio nemo I am deeply sorry for your loss. May your niece rest in peace. I wish you all the strength through these times brother <3

    Emilio nemo

    Thank you, sobered up since then. Mind is clearer <3


    Emilio nemo I'm glad to hear <3

  80. Lord Hades

    Lowkey's music never fails to pull at my heartstrings. Straight from the heart.

  81. Imran Amanullah

    The old man is definitely Afghan; those dance moves scream Afghan lmao

  82. UK Rap G

    This raises awareness about mental health in such artistic way, thank you lowkey and mai khalil, anyone going through tough times feel free to message me on my instagram: @wecare_mentalhealth

  83. OutWriting GRAFF!
