O, I hope I don't get knocked out by the energy

And I won't be giving up so easily

Yeah, I'm moving with your body and I love it's vibe so godly

 

Girl I want to be messing with some funky shit

 

Now I wanna make you feel so beautiful

Without using all those words that feel so typical

But maybe there is something I can say

And say it with my body, That I love your vibe so godly

 

Funky lover, Funky lover

Funky lover, Funky lover

02. Love You Back

A lot of ladies want a one night stand

It's like the end of the world when I'm behind a baby grand

But I've got someone who loves me

And so I'm gonna love them back

And it's okay if you just want some fun

Go and do your thing if you don't hurt no one

But I've got someone who loves me

And so I'm gonna love them back

I don't mind how life can turn me around

Let's roll the dice and take our turn

Not concerned if we ever learn

Cause baby you love me

And so I'm gonna love you back

Oh yeah

Let's rejoice and feel alive

Not concerned if we ever fly 

Cause baby you love me

And so I'm gonna love you back

Oh yeah

Love you back, love you back

I'll love you back

03. Right Now

(True love takes true imagination)

 

It's a difficult situation

Baby you don't need an explanation

Maybe you need a getaway

Somewhere Caribbean

Fresh fruits and sleeping in

But I know now your pulling back the sheets

Wishing you were back asleep somewhere deep

If it's not the world you were hoping for

Then explore the damn thing for something more

 

I can tell you right now

That it won't be easy

I can tell you right now

No, it's gonna be hard

I can tell you right now

That it won't be easy

But remember the pain that you feel

Will be the blessing that's making it real

 

It's a lot of work just believing

Hoping to see a little joy in a season

Maybe I need a better way

But it's been nine weeks of fucking rainy days

And I just want to get back on my feet

Make a dollar and get something good to eat

Following my gut and my gut keeps growling

Drinking like a jazz club Ginsberg, howling

And love I found

It means everything to me right now

Oh yeah

Cause the love I found

It means everything, oh baby

It means everything, oh don't you see

I'll tell the world how I feel, feel for you

04. Bath Water

I'm going out with the bath water

I'm going down, down, down, down

And baby if we go out, we go out together

With the bath water

 

Somebody pulled the plug

And let it all go

Problems never solve themselves

All on their own

Nothing's gonna be the same

Without it

But we're so clever, clever

Never say never, never

Stubborn like a reckless son

They've already won

 

Let's just sit and watch

The water go down

Watch it disappear away

From the ground

Nothing's gonna be the same

Without it

But we're so clever, clever

Never say never, never

Never, never, never

Don't be stubborn now

Yeah, they've already won

With the bath water

We'll go out together

With the bath water

We'll go out together

05. Deep Love

I would never try to put her down to stand my ground

I think it's working 'cause the girl's still hangin' round

Kissing me like I'm a prince about to come a king

Take a ring, take a crown, baby anything

And what matters is the truth of how I see you babe

More than lust honey, we commiserate

Talk to me like we can see through each others eyes

And least to say that I think I can sympathize

 

We look at our reflection

(Look at our reflection)

Do you believe in connection?

 

Deep love so affectionate

I got respect for my girl it's so definite

And it's real how we feel

Nothing feels so real to me

 

Deep love

You're so affectionate

She says she feels lucky

Oh yeah

 

She tastes like flowers or something sweet

I went off to see her for a whole week

Morning sex with a scent of lavender

Yeah, I'm a lucky man just for having her

06. Little Bit Famous

My girl,

She's the height of intellect

She knows,

What not to say on the internet

She's like a movie star

And they wonder who you really are

And I'm starting to figure it out

And I can't let her slip away (slip away)

Away (slip away)

Away (slip away)

Cause she's a little bit famous

And I get to have her for myself

My babe,

Yeah she's so articulate

She knows,

How to dress immaculate

She's like a movie star

And they wonder who you really are

And I'm starting to figure it out

 

West coast, east coast

Girls like movie stars, driving in nice cars

New York City, Detroit City

All around the world girls looking so pretty

But a girl from far, like a movie star

Got me hooked on her, and they wonder you are

I'm starting to figure it out

07. A Love So Nice

Sun shines on windows and buildings

Places I've known still bring feelings

Somethings change while some don't seem to

But your love so nice never fails to

Put words back on my blank papers

Work with me and chill on vapours

Babe you know I'm so selective

But your love I want it protected, yeah

Never thought I'd find a love so nice

So nice, so nice

So nice, so nice

Baby

So I'm gonna be so faithful

With our love I can't be wasteful

Treasure all of our inclinations

That lead us to sweet sensations, yeah

08. Sexy Unreal

The more that you look

The more that you touch

The more that I feel

Babe I know you're sexy unreal

You're sexy unreal

Baby it's killing me

When you coming back from the whack shit you tend to be

I give you everything

No holes in my pocket, when I got it you can get it from me

Got to see it straight, all the facts from the fiction

Simple situation, so listen, listen

Yeah you're so fine darling

So fine you're like a deep sip from a glass of wine

You steal my body from my mind

And my heart from it's time

You suspend rationality

I'm feeling factuality

And it feels

 

From the top to the bottom

You're the way that I dreamt that a woman should truly feel

Take the odds, I've fought'em, made these plans and got'em

Waited 'til I got dealt the deal

Got to see it straight, all the facts from the fiction

Simple situation, so listen, listen

09. When People Come Together

Still up to no good

A trickster head in a cloud

And I'm learning

That a man can't be too proud

Many steps are steps I'll take without you

But life is never better when I'm without you

 

Make the time

When people come together it's the real thing

When people come together

 

You've got to see a young man as a brother

Not just now and then,

I mean man to man no matter the colour

And we can make it all so simple

By giving love to one another

 

No let's hear it for our ladies

Eternal feminine

10. Dance Move Shake

I was fuelling, not in the mood

But you bring it to me smooth, so I'm tempted to groove

But I feel a little bit dangerous

Like I might say something without thinking first

You keep a hand to me

I love you so close don't set me free

I wish we could keep moving

Grooving to a sound so soothing

Dance, move, shake

You make me dizzy with your love

Now I'm vibin' under the beat

Up in my shoes and I'm moving my feet

To the faces so serious

Drinking 'till they're delirious

And I just want to keep the flow

Like nobody here as got a place to go

So I hype the mic, hype the mic

Do what you like, what you like

 

And so I hype the mic, hype the mic

Do what you like, what you like

Babe I'm feeling so good when I...
