Alec Benjamin – The Boy In The Bubble Lyrics

[Verse 1]
It was 6:48 I was walking home
Stepped to the gate and I’m all alone
I had chicken on the plate but the food was cold
Then I covered up my face so that no one knows
I didn’t want trouble
I’m the boy in the bubble
But then came trouble
When my mum walked into the living room
She said boy you gotta tell me what they did to you
I said you don’t wanna know the things that I had to do
She said son you gotta tell me why you’re black and blue
I said I didn’t want trouble
I’m the boy in the bubble
But then came trouble
[Pre-Chorus]
And my heart was pumping
Chest was sceaming
Mind was running
Air was freezing
Put my hands up
Put my hands up
I told this kid I’m ready for a fight
[Chorus]
Punch my face
Do it ’cause I like the pain
Every time you curse my name
I know you want the satisfaction
That’s not going to happen
Knock me out
Kick me when I’m on the ground
It’s only going to let you down
I’m the lightning and the thunder
You’re the one that suffers
[Verse 2]
Well I squared him up with my chest exposed
He threw a quick left hook
And it broke my nose
I had thick red blood running down my clothes
And a sick sick look ’cause I like it though
I said I didn’t want trouble
I’m the boy in the bubble
But then came trouble
[Pre-Chorus]
And my heart was pumping
Chest was sceaming
Mind was running
Air was freezing
Put my hands up
Put my hands up
I told this kid I’m ready for a fight
[Chorus]
Punch my face
Do it ’cause I like the pain
Every time you curse my name
I know you want the satisfaction
That’s not going to happen
Knock me out
Kick me when I’m on the ground
It’s only going to let you down
I’m the lightning and the thunder
You’re the one that suffers
[Verse 3]
It’s 6:48 he’s walking home
With the blood on his hand from my broken nose
But like every other day he was scared to go
Back to his house
Because his pop was home
Drowning his troubles in whiskey bubbles
Just looking for trouble
Well there’s no excuse for the things he did
But there’s a lot at home that he’s dealing with
Because he’s dad’s been drunk since he was a kid
And I hope one day he’ll say to him
Put down those bubbles
And that buckle
And this broken bubble
[Chorus]
Punch my face
Do it ’cause I like the pain
Every time you curse my name
I know you want the satisfaction
That’s not going to happen
Knock me out
Kick me when I’m on the ground
It’s only going to let you down
I’m the lightning and the thunder
You’re the one that suffers
