Carrio Xanders – We Stay Afloat Lyrics (feat. Jesko)

[Verse 1: Carrio Xanders]
Look, just speaking my heart
I had two wings to fly but they clipped one
And I remember you telling me to be strong
But my pain was your pain, I saw your heart ache
Till you couldn’t hold it anymore, you let the walls break
See, love plus pain gives you dedication
We turned to the holy pages for some meditation
You’re a miracle I never knew I needed
Part of me knew it, but weren’t always with me
I guess what I’m saying is I love how you love me
What I’m saying is I don’t know why you trust me
You got firеd from work, unbelievable
I hopе Martin looks back now and sees his ridicule
You’re a titan, you’re a fighter
You let me know that inside of me, there’s a Kaiser
So I knew all I could do was keep fighting
Keep trying and stop crying over spilled milk
I was quivering in the storm and I’m being real
Till you read Mark 4:39, be still
You’re a Queen, you’re queening over your queendom
May all arise and bow whenever the Queen comes
Never have to second-guess your allegiance
We’re spiritual, to hell with religion
You are blind to the ways of the world
Even in the prison cell, I had to pray for you, girl
Family over everything, above you I could never place anything
Look, I was always the pessimist but I draw from your strength when you’re next to me
Now they wanna keep us separated
My true friend in a room of many haters
I ain’t mad, I take it as education
We ride together, on two wings yeah we fly together
[Chorus: Jesko]
We are who we are even when we’ve been separated by seas
They can have my body but they can never take my spirit from me
What will be will certainly be, you’re my destiny
Naysayers don’t ever ever want us to be at peace
We stay, ooh ooh ooh, we stay afloat, we stay afloat
We stay, ooh ooh ooh, we stay afloat, we stay afloat

[Verse 2: Carrio Xanders]
A troubled beginning don’t guarantee a happy ending
But we made it through, taking in all the lessons
It felt different for me, a troubled adolescent
But you only took part ‘cos you’re just sympathetic
Lord knows I would have done it different
But the moon don’t shine when the sun is missing
And my sequence couldn’t just con sequences
And our race is different, it’s no competition
Who knew all that was for a reason
We’re short-sighted, couldn’t forecast the vision
What we did was keep running the distance
Never giving up on each other was the mission
They tried to put a crack in our wall
A crack in the window and a crack in the door
You made your choice and you fight for it
I mean your choice was me, you fight for me
From chains and handcuffs in a prison cell
We made it to the world stage, a pre-written tale
And if my name don’t ring a bell
It’s ‘cos they left me dead in the streets like Stringer Bell
Your love is tough, your love is strong
Your love ravages like a storm
Your love is gentle, your love is calm
Your love is your word and your word is bond
Your love is refined, your love is pure
Your love is defined, your love is sure
Your love is divine, your love can cure
You do it real big, no miniatures
Now they wanna keep us separated
My true friend in a room of many haters
I ain’t mad, I take it as education
We ride together, on two wings yeah we fly together
[Chorus: Jesko]
We are who we are even when we’ve been separated by seas
They can have my body but they can never take my spirit from me
What will be will certainly be, you’re my destiny
Naysayers don’t ever ever want us to be at peace
We stay, ooh ooh ooh, we stay afloat, we stay afloat
We stay, ooh ooh ooh, we stay afloat, we stay afloat
