The song marks twigs’ first collaboration with Central Cee, but seeing as their voices mesh so well together, we certainly hope it isn’t their last. For her part, the Cheltenham native lends her signature sultry vocals to the first few verses and the chorus. On his turn, Cee comes in with a grimy verse, rapping “It’s the manners that make a man / But the hammers that break a man / Damn.”

As The Fader notes, the track’s “lush” production can be compared to famous James Bond-like tracks of the past, such as Billie Eilish’s “No Time To Die.” Along with the collab, the English songstress also shared a cinematic version of the song that includes only her voice.

Lyrics

[Verse 1: FKA Twigs]
Nobody
Feels the pain behind the love you show
Nobody
Feels the burden that is yours alone

[Pre-Chorus: FKA Twigs]
If when the morning comes, you’re not with me (Destiny)
I know that you’ll return with destiny

[Chorus: FKA Twigs]
Only you can truly understand
The measure of a hero is the measure of a man
(I wanna kiss it better, the measure of a man)
The measure of a man
(I wanna kiss it better, the measure of a man)

[Verse 2: FKA Twigs]
Your body
Bears the scars of every man I know
So softly
I wanna kiss it better, the scarlet letter
To me, it don’t belong

[Pre-Chorus: FKA Twigs]
If when the morning comes, you’re not with me (Destiny)
I know that you’ll return with destiny

[Chorus: FKA Twigs]
Only you can truly understand
The measure of a hero is the measure of a man
(I wanna kiss it better, the measure of a man)
The measure of a man
(I wanna kiss it better, the measure of a man)

[Bridge: Central Cee]
It’s the manners that make a man
But the hammers that break a man
Damn, they wanted to see me broke
But I flipped the script and I broke the band
Young and wealthy
Don’t let it overwhelm me, I still get fed
Still can’t tell me
Not when the system fail me, I still bounce back
I run this ting, got a lot of endurance
What do you know about drastic measures?
I married a hustle, me in the game like Harry and Meghan
Some man in my hood too jealous
Why do you think that we carry a weapon?
Take time and trust the process, life’s a game of chess, not checkers
Stop ballin’, you gotta stop stressin’
You gotta stop thinkin’ you won’t get through it
It’s all in your mind
I’ve go down a couple of times, I got up and go back to it

[Chorus: FKA Twigs]
Only (Only), you can (You can), truly (Truly), understand
The measure (Measure), of a (Of a), hero is the measure of a man
The measure of a man

[Outro]
Only you can truly understand
The measure of a hero is the measure of a man
The measure of a man
Ooh-ooh-ooh
