Biography

Their songs are not only an impressive collection of honest, hook-laden work, but also a statement of celebration – both of Beat Express’ own achievements and the culture and community that they are part of.

Lyrics

Stress

Written By: Beat Express

Teachers at school stress me out
They don’t really know who I am
When I get fits it stresses me out
I wish they wouldn’t happen to me
Being at work stresses me out
People just aren’t really there
No respect it stresses me out
People just don’t really care

But playing my music stops me stressing me out
A little bit of love stops me stressing me out

It stresses me out, it’s driving me mad
