What are the lyrics on Stormzy’s track, Lessons?

Here are the heartfelt lyrics from Stormzy’s breakup track, Lessons:

I knew a woman more wonderful than a Disney one
I lost my heart, I just wondered if you could give me one?
I hit you back, you know lately I’ve had some busy ones
I been getting this money just on my Lizzy ones
And now we’re acting like children, it’s so pathetic
I was trying to reach out for ages, I need my credit
There’s a couple lines in our script I think we should edit
Why you gotta b***h all the time? Just read my message

Shit, f**king hell, I’m such a handful
On one hand I’m pissed, but on the other hand I’m thankful
Times when it was bliss and there were times it was a shambles
Times when it was lit and other times we lit the candles
I’m probably reminiscing when you could be hella dissing
Never been the type to be so reckless with decisions
Swear you tried to tell me but it’s like I never listen
And I was meant to share your vision
I was meant to be your rider, put a bit of Henny on my rider
You can stay at home, I’ll send a driver
I’ll be your provider, No, I’m not around but it’s a minor
Cah I don’t like the spotlight and you don’t like it neither
But that was then and this is now
I was pacing ’round my kitchen like this shit is foul
I don’t the dirt and then I figured that you’ll dig it out
But that’s a coward move, I guess you got me figured out
I know you’ll never listen now

You taught me love, oh, what a gift
I know that it’s hard, too hard to forgive
And to be honest if I were you
I’d be the same way
To be honest if I were you
Then I’d be unforgiving too

Fast forward now, my nephew’s still asking for his Auntie Maya
Guess this is the karma for what I done to Maya
I just stood and let it burn, I couldn’t down the fire
Lord, I pray you make it easy, that’s my one desire
God loves a trier, I can’t even fathom what I probably had you going through
You cannot imagine how I’m sorry, man, I’m showing you
Now I haven’t even got the luxury of knowing you
We was even meant to share a seed and let it grow in you
I can’t even look you in the eye, that’s ’cause of shame
Now you’re tryna block me out your mind, that’s ’cause of pain
Greatest love I ever knew, I poured it down the drain
Maybe it’s the only way we both call it a day
You gave me the world and then I gave you disrespect
Hand on my heart, this is my biggest of regrets
Thought I’d say it here then rather fling it in a text
Until you’re ready to forgive I’m always wishing you the best but…

Why did Stormzy and Maya Jama split?

On August 21, it was revealed that Maya Jama and Stormzy had called it quits, with the TV presenter wasting no time in having her belongings removed from the home she shared with her former beau.

Fans were stunned by the news since it was just a few days prior when Stormzy had attended Maya’s 25th birthday bash at Night Tales bar in Hackney, East London.

A source close to the TV presenter shared: “Maya has moved out of their home in South West London.

“The decision isn’t one she has come to lightly, but ultimately the relationship has come to an end. She wants to focus on her TV and radio career for now.”

What were the rumours about Stormzy cheating?

Following news that Stormzy and Maya had split, the rapper was forced to deny rumours he had cheated on his former girlfriend with close pal Jorja Smith.

Fans took to social media to let their thoughts be hard, with a number of them claiming the Shut Up rapper had become involved with Brit Award-winning singer Jorja, 22 – a rumour which a representative for the stars has since denied.

They told Metro: “I can confirm any accusations or reports surrounding Stormzy’s infidelity to Maya are categorically not true.”

Comments on social media included: “So stormzy cheated on maya jama with Jorja Smith, ELITE.”

Another person wrote: “Dude pammed Maya Jama and Jorja Smith… bro Stormzy is GOAT thats the most elite CV ever.”

Elsewhere, another fan continued: “I’m seeing people saying Stormzy cheated on Maya with Jorja Smith ??????????? I- Woz going on????.”

Fans didn’t seem to believe that Maya ended her four-year relationship with Stormzy over her career-related reasons, which seems to have led to the assumption that Stormzy cheated.

But a rep denied Stormzy had cheated with Jorja Smith and told Metro: “I can confirm any accusations or reports surrounding Stormzy’s infidelity to Maya are categorically not true.”
