BENAB – J’ai demandé à la rue (English lyrics)

Intro :
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
Ouh, yeah

1st verse :
I’m around her day and night, everything is carved in her memory
From the smallest to the biggest stories, yeah, the AKs pulled out late at night
And in the city, the police sirens are making melodies, the hard times forces us to rob for money
For pesos, we slang caramelo, a little naive, mmh, it’s maybe a flaw
Sevran, is Palermo, the fiends are pale, I don’t leave my finger prints around, the streets told me : “stay away from prison visits”
There’s a lot of vegetarians and the drug dealer has everything, weed, dime bags, on the dope spot, I do the tuen (yeah, yeah, yeah)

Pre chorus :
I lost all hopes of getting away
Five hundred kilos from Spain, the streets are gonna slice it up
What are you going to do with all kids hanging out in the alley ?
Why are you putting in our minds that we’re condemned ?

Chorus :
Oh, oh, oh
I asked to street to keep me away from the devil and his tricks
Im’ still not the tyep to show off
I asked, ouh, I asked, ouh
Oh, oh, oh
I asked the streets to give the kids back their sight
The more I advance, the more I need to be reassured
I asked, ouh, I asked

2nd verse :
I’m around her day and night, dark stare behind the sun glasses
No way out deep down in those coridors, only victory seperates us
Yeah, pretty, we spotted you at the hotel, while your father is praying for you well being to the most high
You’re sending nudes, you’re renting your body for money and in the street, avery one says bad things about you
They’re getting locked up, the streets are merciless, it’s either a shovel to burry you or the slammers
It’s contradictory : the street doens’t die, she sells death for their well being, that’s what she would like to make believe

Pre chorus :
I lost all hopes of getting away
Five hundred kilos from Spain, the streets are gonna slice it up
What are you going to do with all kids hanging out in the alley ?
Why are you putting in our minds that we’re condemned ?

Chorus :
Oh, oh, oh
I asked to street to keep me away from the devil and his tricks
Im’ still not the tyep to show off
I asked, ouh, I asked, ouh
Oh, oh, oh
I asked the streets to give the kids back their sight
The more I advance, the more I need to be reassured
I asked, ouh, I asked

Bridge :
I asked the street (X4)

Outro :
I asked the street to keep em away from the devil and his tricks
I’m still not the type to show off
I asked, ouh, I asked, ,ouh
I asked (X9)
