ILL-TACKTEEK's 'Heaven Can Wait' lyrics






Stay with me

Don't fall asleep too soon

The Angels can wait......for a moment

          [X2]



I know the night is long, but don't you fall asleep/

before i write this song and put it on repeat/

With every stroke of that pen i feel your heartbeat/

Don't let it be the last/

Promise me that you'll fight/

Promise me that you'll find a reason to keep a nigga breathing.......at least just for tonight/

I know heaven couldn't wait but juss gimme one more day/

Gimme one more nite (coz) there's still a lot I need to say/

To these words I give life/

Poems I recite/

So if only for tonite, you didnt have to die/

They could take away the flesh but the spirit still exists/

So even when you gone, through this music we gonn speak/

[So only for tonite]



Stay with me [staaaaay]

Don't fall asleep too soon [not a minute soon]

The Angels can wait......for a moment [heaven wait x3]

          [X2]

I felt the devil in the room, it sent shivers down my spine/

Are the angels too late?

I juss hope you prayed to God hommie, it's never too late/

Look at what we been through, we've made it through worse/

Tonite is no different, so stay a little while/

Let us reconcile/

Let us run back the clock, take a little time/

so pour another glass, perhaps light a cigar......and toast to the memories we had/

You and me were bad/

Michael Jackson BAD/

Remember Kanye's song and how we used to laugh?

Lyrics in our school books like 'who was there to ask?'

So straight up to the booth after school we made a dash/

[So only for tonite]



Stay with me [staaaaay]

Don't fall asleep too soon [not a minute soon]

The Angels can wait......for a moment [heaven wait x3]

          [X2]



"If you heard me say Legion_Of_One, it's to the death

Give my niggas reason to 'dumn', you get left/

Somewhere on the other side of town in dirt......"

I remember when you wrote that other line like yesterday/

You and me gonna die without a doubt, juss not today/

If you ever thought of giving up, juss not tonite/

Time we showed these industry niggas that hiphop alive/

So even without Pac or BIG, we be 'alright '/

we be alright hommie, we be alright/

if I'm to let you die, how could I live with myself/

I'm on my knees, I'm breaking down and couldn't face......another season in hell/

Couldnt walk this lonely earth without a part of myself/

[So only for tonite]



Stay with me

Don't fall asleep too soon

The Angels can wait......for a moment

          [X2]

ABOUT ILL-TACKTEEK



Illtackteek is a Harare-based song writer/

hiphop artiste.

His first recognisable musical effort was the release of a mixtape titled Legacy

Blood Legacy Bars (2015) which comprised of

13 tracks, material of which was mostly

recorded along his journey towards the

mainstream music arena.

"The CD is a documentation of my life's

experiences, the things that i have seen

and been through and ultimately the

things that have helped in shaping me as

the man/artist that i am today", said Ill-

tackteek.

From sampling the music, his lyrical

prowess is undoubted, neither is his

hunger to succeed and put local hiphop

on the global stage.

Having started writing songs at the early

age of 12 the rapper says he draws

inspiration from the likes of Nasir 'Nas'

Jones, Immortal Technique and the late

Tupac Shakur, just to name a few.

"These musical 'bars' are my legacy and i

believe they will inevitably cement my

name and place in hip-hop's present and

future history", he said

Work on his debut album is currently underway.

The song "Heaven Can Wait" is the first single to be released from this forthcoming album that is aptly titled  "Timeless Pieces" and  is to be released this September.

" It is basically a self-motivational track.

The core of it appealing to one's self not to give in or give up too easily.

"It is my hope that the fans can also relate to it and identify with the track and its message the very same way i do"

said Illtackteek.

 As to why he chose September 13 as the day to release his first single,  the hiphop emcee said:

" It is a significant date in hiphop and the day that one of my icons,  Tupac Shakur passed away and largely a date that many people actually associate with the 'death' of  'real' hiphop. 

" So its only right that i begin my journey where he left off and bring back that real hiphop again",  he confidently asserts.

Whether he will be one of the artists to lead this new surge of local hiphop and not only carry it going forward but give it that much needed direction remains to be seen but he has taken it upon himself to carry that mantle and the track "Heaven Can Wait" is true testament to that.

Once in a while a talent comes along and makes everyone else stop and take notice,  once in a while the gods do indeed smile upon us.  

This is one talent history wont forget to take note of.



ILL- sublime, with the connotation of

being so in a singularly creative way

TACKTEEK/Tactic - an action calculated

to achieve a certain purpose
