Lyrics

The Good

Wake up in the morning and I look at the news

Of the world today

Everybody’s fighting ‘cause their rights are being

Taken away

Starting with the right to feel safe, whatever color your skin

Whatever god you believe in

And I can’t believe we have to have this conversation over again

And again and again

‘Cause the climate’s getting hotter

The bigot’s getting bolder

Things are getting harder and harder as

We’re getting older

So we’ve got to appreciate the good that we’ve got

Got to appreciate the good that we’ve got

Got to appreciate the good that we’ve got

Appreciate the good that we’ve got

 

When I go to bed at night I count up all my blessings

And pray

I pray for all the people who are living with oppression

Today

So I speak out in favor of equality and tolerance

No matter who you love or where you came from

We’ve got to learn to love each other, live together with our mother

Or we ain’t gonna last long

‘Cause the climate’s getting hotter

The bigot’s getting bolder

Things are getting harder and harder as

We’re getting older

So we’ve got to appreciate the good that we’ve got

Got to appreciate the good that we’ve got

Got to appreciate the good that we’ve got

Appreciate the good that we’ve got

 

My Heart Beats For You

My heart beats for you

My heart beats for you

All the blood in my veins knows

My love is true

 

My lungs breathe for you

My lungs breathe for you

Every breath that I take

The air I breathe is you

 

My feet dance for you

My feet dance for you

Every move that I make

The beat I feel is you

 

My voice sings for you

My voice sings for you

All the music I make

Is love to you

 

I Can’t Help It

My walls are falling down for you

I want to know what love can do

I’ll give you anything you want me to

‘Cause I can’t help it loving you

I can’t help it loving you

 

I know your love for me is true

It’s in all the little things you do

I want to show you that I love you too

Why don’t we do the things that lovers do

Why don’t we do the things that lovers do

 

My walls are falling down for you

‘Cause I can’t help it loving you

I can’t help it loving you

 

Long Winter (F*** That Guy)

Sleeping alone again

For the first time since I can’t remember when

So I lay down, but don’t want to dream again

‘cause all of my dreams are of you

So I hold my pillow tight

Crying ‘cause you didn’t treat me right

All my friends say I’ve got to let you go

And I know, yeah I know, what they’re saying is true

It’s gonna be a long, cold lonely winter

‘Till I feel the sun again

‘Till I’m over you

It’s gonna be a long, winding road ahead

‘Till I find a place where I

Can live without you

 

Well you know, all that nonsense is just what I told myself

Thinking that’s what it’ll take to break the spell

Then I realize, I see that you were long gone, so long!

And I’ve been doing, yeah I’ve been doing just fine this whole time

It’s gonna be a long, glorious winter

Laying in the sun again

Coming to bloom

It’s gonna be a long wonderful road ahead

Living in the light

That I have found without you

 

Over and over I’ve searched through my soul

Picking up all of the pieces

I pull them together and I fill in the holes

With the beauty and joy of my riches

I’ll be landing on my feet in the community that’s lifted me up

While I fall into a long, glorious winter

Laying in the sun again

Coming to bloom

It’s gonna be a long, wonderful road ahead

Living in the light

That I have found without you

 

 

Love, Come Love Me

Love come find me

Love come find me

Come take a seat, come on and tell me where you’ve been

Love, won’t you come and find me?

 

Love come and sing to me

Love serenade me

It’s been too long since I’ve heard your song

Love, won’t you come and sing to me?

 

Baby put your arms around me let me know you’re mine

I’ll be loving you until the sun doesn’t shine

Since you’ve been away I miss you all of the time

So come on baby now and let your love light shine

 

Love, come love me

Love, come love me

Come right in, rock my world again

Love, won’t you come and love me?

 

Love come be sweet to me

Sweet like a honey bee feeding his queen

Love my peaches, shake my tree

Love, won’t you come be sweet to me?  

 

Elemental

Air my breath and

Fire my spirit

Earth my body

Water my blood

I am a force of nature

Just like the moon and tide

I feel the earth move underneath my feet

And my soul to the sun does rise

 

Trees know where to reach a limb

Fish can always tell which way to swim

Being human isn’t any different

If we look past the skin we’re in

 

Air my breath and

Fire my spirit

Earth my body

Water my blood

 

I am the eye of the storm

I know the light from which we all are born

When the earth quakes and the waves break like thunder on the shore

It’s an echo of the fire in the core

 

Air my breath and

Fire my spirit

Earth my body

Water my blood

 

Equality For All

Lately I see trouble all around me

People shouting, throwing up their hands

Saying “Wait a minute

what have we come to?

Why do we not all have equal rights?”

 

So I ask myself what can I do

When silence is what allows this injustice through

All over fear and hate are coming out in deadly ways

We’ve got to wake up

We’ve got some work to do

 

So whenever you’re in doubt

You don’t know what it’s all about

Keep your feet in time

Put a rhythm to the rhyme

You’ve got to let your voice come out

Artist paint a picture

Writer tell us all

I’ll sing that the solution to the problem is

Equality for all!

Equality for all!

Equality for all!

Equality for all!

 

People are dying, our planet is crying

And when we stand up, they don’t put it on the news

The revolution will not be televised

We’ve got to wake up, got to open our eyes

We’ve got to rise up, we’ve got some work to do

 

So whenever you’re in doubt

You don’t know what it’s all about

Keep your feet in time

Put a rhythm to the rhyme

You’ve got to let your voice come out

Artist paint a picture

Writer tell us all

I’ll sing that the solution to the problem is

Equality for all!

Equality for all!

Equality for all!

Equality for all!

 

I’m talking about Standing Rock and Ferguson and Flint Michigan

And Charlottesville and Puerto Rico and the Southern Border Wall

We’ve got to rise up

We’ve got to look out for each other

We’ve got to love one another

We’ve got to work together

Rise up, nevermind the pain

Rise up, because this is not okay

Rise up, shout the revolution

Rise up, love will defeat the hate

Love will defeat the hate

Love will defeat the hate

Love will defeat the hate

 

So whenever you’re in doubt

You don’t know what it’s all about

Keep your feet in time

Put a rhythm to the rhyme

You’ve got to let your voice come out

Artist paint a picture

Writer tell us all

I’ll sing that the solution to the problem is

Equality for all!

Equality for all!

Equality for all!

Equality for all!

 

Better

Baby ever since I met you I cannot stop thinking of you

Day and night

You took me by surprise when you caught my eye

And I wonder could you be mine?

My heart skipped a beat when I felt the heat of your fire

Burning deep

Never have I ever met an ember bright as mine

Now I want to know your heat

Would it be okay if I called you baby

Would it be alright if we spent some time

Learning about how we go together

I want to know you better

 

Honey when I think about you don’t you know you make me feel a-

Flutter like a butterfly

Spreading my wings, making me sing

So high

You’re the one I desire, you’re the fuel to my fire

And baby I’m burning strong

‘Cause darling when my heart is pumping

you’re the rhythm that it’s thumping

Won’t you be the beat of my song?

Would it be okay if I called you baby

Would it be alright if we spent some time

Learning about how we go together

I want to know you better

 

 

Make Your Move

It’s a beautiful night and we’re out on the town

The music is hot and we’re getting down

Moving and grooving getting into the mood

Positive vibes all around the room

The melody’s playing me, the rhythm is swaying me

If the music moving me moves you too

Why don’t you come on, baby, make your move?

I’m right here waiting, shaking for you

I see you watching while we get on our groove

Come on, baby, make your move!

 

The mood’s rising high and the bass is low

The tempo is up but we’re burning slow

Taking our time to stimulate the mind

Body and soul

The melody’s playing me, the rhythm is swaying me

If the music moving me moves you too

Why don’t you come on, baby, make your move?

I’m right here waiting, shaking for you

I see you watching while we get on our groove

Come on, baby, make your move!

 

Sweetness, Honey

My last lover left a funky taste in my mouth

And now you’ve come along and I need you to help me out

See, I’m all puckered up and sour, need your sun upon my flower

Will you fill me with your sweetness, honey

Why don’t you fill me with your sweetness, honey

Fill me with your sweetness, honey

Whey don’t you fill me with your sweetness, honey

Come on and give me all your sweetness, honey

 

Keep on pouring all that sugar in my ear

Keep on telling me all the things you seem to know I want to hear

If you call me names like “beautiful” and let me keep your hands full

I will fill you with my sweetness, honey

I want to fill you with my sweetness, honey

I want to fill you with my sweetness, honey

I want to fill you with my sweetness, honey

I want to give you all my sweetness, honey

 

Gimme gimme gimme gimme gimme gimme gimme gimme

Gimme gimme gimme gimme gimme gimme gimme that sweetness, honey

 

I get lost in the abyss of your kiss

You know the light in there is all that there is

You found a way in to the place where I live

Baby now that you’re here I’m gonna give you all I’ve got to give

 

I’m gonna give you all my sweetness, honey

Give you all my sweetness, honey

I want to give you all my sweetness, honey

I want to give you all my sweetness, honey

Give you all my sweetness, honey

Why don’t you give me all your sweetness, baby

Give me all your sweetness, honey

I want to give you all my sweetness, honey

I want to give you all my sweetness, honey

Come on and give me all your sweetness, honey

 

Come Here My Darling Lover

Come here my darling lover

Let me see your face

Come here my darling lover

Bring your warm embrace

Come here my darling lover

Let’s go to that place

Under the moon and stars

Dance the night away

Come here

 

Come here my darling lover

I will kiss your face

Come here my darling lover

I will sing your name

Come here my darling lover

However long you stay

All of our time together

Takes my breath away

Come here

 

Come here my darling lover

Take my hand

Show me where we begin

And have no end

 

 

That’s Okay

Baby I know you’ve been broken again and again

I know you’re afraid of love and don’t want to give in

‘Cause you’ve been hurt too many times before

Don’t want to open that door anymore

Keeping your heart under lock and key

Open your eyes, baby you will see

Honey that’s okay

Oh honey that’s okay

I love you anyway

 

I can see you’re trying to be the best you can be

Never lying or cheating or stealing, you live honestly

Trying to make up for all the times you done wrong

Learning your lessons and making the songs

Some people tell you to stop, you’re too much

Yet somehow you think that you’re never enough

Honey, that’s okay

Oh honey that’s okay

I love you anyway
