Lightworks 03:06
Red sky no stars Blue lights slow cars Sirens black cats Chrome filled fat caps Cheap thrills cheap meals Buy more cheap deals Still can’t pay rent Heads on the pavement Broke backs brave hearts Push chairs graveyards Make up tired eyes Lizzy's face white lines Tracksuits push bikes Bad things good guys Handcuffs handshakes Beats bars and breaks Tower blocks steeples Coffee cups needles Black cabs night buses A baby's born and a nine busses A pool of blood canvas the floor Both crying out for mum and the balance restored Fresh faced as I step out the rubble Elevating keep my head outta trouble Head out and hustle Never hating get the best out the struggle Got stuck tryna write the right words God, drugs, lost loves that never quite were Its pot luck watch studying as time turns Nothing long trust its Lightworks

Lost a Father and a partner what's the answer to the misery Mother is a martyr watch what karma delivers she's Hard in spirit soft physically Mad hardship it's really deep Dark marks scar the heart visibly Still I, bill something spill another beer Nothings clear still nothing like my Mothers ear Only real is love and fear still we're here still stuck in the sphere There's nothing up above but the sun outta dust we're born Outta love we're formed But fears here still I see the destructive force It'll crush what you love put your trust in more Looking for the answer to the ultimate Look inside the heart to feel close to it Cos that's that thing That thing yeah thats that thing Looking for the answer to the ultimate Look inside the heart to feel close to it Cos that's that thing That thing yeah thats that thing That feeling is the thing right there, yeah That feeling is the thing right there Looking for the answer to the ultimate Look inside the heart to feel close to it Cos that's that thing That thing yeah thats that thing Pour another for Bill Hope for more for my Mother for real Know the score me and my Brother will Hold the torch know it's fucking real Something still feels missing Still nothing still Still spinning like a truckers wheel Some'll feel what we feel know the fucking deal This how the Summers feel, yeah This how the Summers feel

Still reclining Still reside the brighter side find the silver lining Chilled vibes what i'm still providing Blaze one and recline Laid under the sky Sun rays make love to my mind Save none we got nothing but time I buss a rhyme with my brother and a cousin of mine Take a moment to bill it Take a toke and I float in infinite Blaze a cone straight potent is in it Slow motion the motive is chilling Take a moment to bill it Take a toke and I float in infinite Lyrics spoken with spirit Really hope that you feel it Take a minute let my bro flip it Roll my indo up And my window down Everything goes up Everything comes down

Took a moment to bill it Had to zone for a minute I need space so I breathe vapour Beat lacer the dream chaser Streets grey feel I need nature Need paper create me a green acre Weed blazer from days of a teenager Bad behaviour number 133 taker So street danger is nothing new Need a place with another view The team major we coming through For the Queens face need the money to Feed the babies and pay rent Seems lately the days spent In a sleep state as we chase pence Feet pacing the pavements in the same ends Same lens we circulate the same ether Break beater I stay leaner Blaze cheeba get the weight cheaper Sixteen, thirty two, eight speaker A shade deeper what my page feature Gatekeeper came to resonate realer Really feeling like a milli miles an hour In the city shit is gritty for the power Witness how we living feeling sour Ain't grinning for that minimum an hour Really feeling like a milli miles an hour In the city shit is gritty for the power Witness how we living feeling sour Ain't grinning for that minimum an hour We keep it really real Half these rappers never told us how they really feel Find strength in the weakness I still reveal Every feeling shit is really real I'm still missing Bill feel your physical is missing here Spirit missing in the sphere This fulfilling all my realest fears My vision isn't clear cos I'm spilling tears But you taught me never live in fear Smoke billows Wet pillows Keep your widow dear Smoke billows Wet pillows Keep your widow dear

Blue Skies 02:37
Hit the country for a drive just to clear my mind Blow a blunt into the sky got me here in time Slim bumping by my side you can hear the vibe Stress nothing don’t fear the ride Just take a hit to the lung Roach stinging in my finger and thumb Send it flying in the wind straight into the sun Smoke lingers on the tip of my tongue Up high been baked in the fragrance Sunlight beams straight in my statements Sometimes seem faded and vacant But I been away chasing paper and pavements In the jungle keeps me on my toes Real humble still keeping it low Real hungry trying to reap what I sow But my belly still rumble need the seeds to grow Dark and cold but I see the light Heart is gold I just need to shine Dark and cold but I see the light Heart is gold I just need to shine All my tribe on my back when I scrawl a rhyme Leave it all on the track so we all survive Fall from fools pride and the falsified Honour fam or we all divide Let it fall from skies the vibe rain on the streets Life ain’t on a beach put my pain on the beat On the pavement my feet match the pace let it play on repeat Bleed a deep red mark on my sleeve Bare my heart in every bar that I speak Share the parts no armour should keep And shine a light to the darkness beneath Dark and cold but I see the light Heart is gold I just need to shine Dark and cold but I see the light Heart is gold I just need to shine
6.
Seek the light Been deep at night seems recently we need to shine I see the streets life defeated in the people's eyes Speak a piece of mine for the peace of my mind My healing these beats I write to But it's deeper than rhymes, true Find meaning read between the lines Keep repeating keep seeking the light Make tracks for the people Since way back with The Prequel Laid back Tapp came back for The Sequel Make tracks for the people Since way back with The Prequel Laid back Tapp came back for The Sequel C.Tappin: Shine your light, shine your light Shine your light, shine your light Shine your light, shine your Shine your light through the darkness Shine your light, shine your light Shine your light, shine your light Shine your light, shine your Shine your light through the darkness Old friends new surroundings The road don't bend we move mountains No solo flex the crews down Still no pence but who's counting Flow sense like blue fountains No tension we too grounded 2022 bound to be plenty new albums We out here C.Tappin: Shine your light, shine your light Shine your light, shine your light Shine your light, shine your Shine your light through the darkness Shine your light, shine your light Shine your light, shine your light Shine your light, shine your Shine your light through the darkness Make tracks for the people Since way back with The Prequel Layed back Tapp came back for The Sequel Make tracks for the people Since way back with The Prequel Layed back Tapp came back for The Sequel The last leaves are late falling Rays of light fade with Autumn The rain keeps pouring The rain keeps pouring The last leaves are late falling Rays of light fade with Autumn The rain keeps pouring Shades stay drawn on late nights and lazy mornings But kinda beauty in the melancholy Find a kinda beauty in the melancholy Kinda beauty in the melancholy Find a kinda beauty in the melancholy Kinda beauty in the melancholy Find a kinda beauty in the melancholy

C Tappin on the keys tapping Keep the heat cracking All the elements present so we keep reacting Get up out your seats heads nodding and the feet tapping YKD brought the sweet yak in 28 g’s got the green pack in Generic ain’t we watch the team pattern I never let it slip Unless I’m penning this Confessing everything I ever did All the positive and negative I never hid Ever present in the edifice Miss the melodies and memories of relatives Let it hit home Let it bleed light the sedatives No energy to waste No envy or jealousy or hate Won’t empty my energy for fakes No enemies I make No energy to waste Plenty melodies to make Flows remedy I let it be replaced I be the centre piece nestled in the breaks No time for games No mind for fakes Flow nice not riding waves No tides I chase Waves rise and they crash Waves rise and they crash Waves rise and they crash Don’t chase tides just a drop in the ocean No energy to waste No envy or jealousy or hate Won’t empty my energy for fakes No enemies I make No energy to waste Plenty melodies to make Flows remedy I let it be replaced I be the centre piece nestled in the breaks No time for games No mind for fakes Flow nice not riding waves No tides I chase Waves rise and they crash Waves rise and they crash Waves rise and they crash Don’t chase tides just a drop in the ocean

Find comfort in the company But minds restless when I'm alone Distractions keep me occupied Keep at bay thoughts inside a zone Drink a cup of something with an aftertaste A little burn makes me feel alive The minds something that you can't escape Try to numb but hurts still inside Drinking worries smoke our pain away Mix the substance in a hurry just to fade away Link a something little loving honey say my name Fixing nothing how we play the game Thinkings funny sinking money in a vain escape Stays afraid city slumming in the rain again Shades of grey Nothing sunny but we radiate Reveal the realest me Look underneath my skin and see my vulnerabilities Spill what I really feel With nothing but sincerity Its killing me the shit I see in my vicinity Real love is all we really need All we really need Real love is all we really need Blue moon now the spring blossom New bloom Brushing everything off them Blue moon now the spring blossom New bloom Brushing everything off them The stress is high but we're getting by Getting high and forgetting why The stress is high but we're getting by Getting high and forgetting why I'm still staying consumed With the real and what I'm saying to you I gotta feel it its the way that we do Making moves every statement is true Stay faded stay making it loop Ain't chasing paper just a lady or two Apple of my eye get a taste of the fruit Your shapes so graceful got me crazy for you Wanna get inside your body and your cranium too Stay patient stay -

Orange Moon 02:58
Sex and dank in the air Light a candle untangle your hair The first one that could handle the glare Stand and declare all the things I don’t standardly share You divine Wanna get into your mind Into your heart and into your thighs Feel the feeling when I look into your eyes My truth defined words only serve to disguise You remind me of the moon at night I’m bathed in lunar light Two combine Lose my pride Losing time Lose my mind Losing you and I My orange moon reflecting the sun The son was stunned new perspective begun Met the one soon connected become In tune can’t be separate as one My orange moon reflecting the sun The son was stunned new perspective begun Met the one soon connected become In tune can’t be separate as one She’s beaming She’s beaming Yeah she’s beaming She’s beaming She’s beaming got a shine of her own Reflect mine but got a shine of her own You divine Wanna get into your mind Into your heart and into your thighs Feel the feeling when I look into your eyes Intoxicated red wine from your rose petal Piercing pink soft as feathers and snow speckles Bathe in your honey so sticky and sweet Sunshine caresses as I’m kissing your cheek

Holding onto a picture of you Though your gone still wishing that it isn’t true Think it through think of you and all the things that we do In the mood for a drink or a few Sitting still in silence feel your guidance from a higher place Horizons changed still its vibrant as advice you gave Only difference is the time and space Sitting still in silence feel your guidance from a higher place Horizons changed still its vibrant as advice you gave Only difference is the time and space These words confirm the burden of death Stomach churning burns hurting my chest Don’t let it surface we just learn to pretend Too close to the nerve so we circle instead Served the worst turn of events But stay certain that the earth stay turning my friend Words burst from the pen Gotta perpetrate my purpose in the verse that I vent The fear of death is part of life Clear my head see the spark of light Near the end from the start of time But here I rest hear my heart align Another tear hits your grave Another year shits the same You ain’t here just the pain Raise another beer in your name Fear the struggle and strain Here with my Mother in the rain It's fucking insane Ain’t left the house in a couple of days Struggle with the pain and the trouble in my frame Down in a muddle in my bubble again Let me drown in the puddles of rain Sitting still in silence feel your guidance from a higher place Horizons changed still its vibrant as advice you gave Only difference is the time and space Bouts of depression Now I’m out and I’m counting my blessings Found lessons In every ounce of the stressing Break outta my settings Suns out I’m about what i’m repping

“The Rain” is the second full-length album by South London jazz rap group Summers Sons. Summers Sons are Turt (vocals) and Slim (production). They are actual brothers, Summers
is their surname.

“'The Rain' is a story of loss, love and new beginnings.”, Turt explains. “It's our most personal and experimental work to date. Written after the sudden passing of our step dad, a vulnerable and honest album exploring the lows and the journey to try and pick up the pieces. Over a stripped back production style, we bare ourselves more than ever before. The sun doesn't always shine but we need The Rain to grow. The album was recorded over an 18 months period immediately following his death and recorded entirely in the house we all shared. It's the most conceptual album we've made, and the themes stay present as a strong current throughout." Since then Turt and his partner Chess’ life has come full circle with the birth of their first daughter on Nov 1st.

Clash Mag who premiered Summers Sons’ second single “Bittersweet” states: “The gloriously infectious new jazz-leaning cut 'Bittersweet' (…) is worth filing alongside everyone from Gang Starr to Loyle Carner, but with a neat sound of their own.”. Summers Sons are gracing the cover of Spotify's “Coffee & Beats” playlist where “Bittersweet” enjoys the pole position. The singles “Blue Skies” and “Bittersweet” are also in Spotify’s “Butter” playlist.

Since signing with Melting Pot Music in 2017, Summers Sons have released a mini-album “Undertones” and their debut album “Uhuru” (a joint venture with pianist and singer C.Tappin). They have been featured on albums by Twit One and Flatpocket, toured with Children of Zeus and played shows with Melodiesinfonie and FloFilz. The latter also remixed one of their songs as did Twit One and Cap Kendricks. Both Summers Sons projects “Undertones” and “Uhuru” accumulated more than 3 million streams each and the band has build a strong fanbase in UK and Germany.
