01. Move On It
[V1] Death's not freedom from pain, it's freedom from bliss.
Cause perfect moments got me dreaming of a life better than this.
And we thank our lucky stars, but I can see the whole sky.
Taking in its brilliance, I think fuck it get resilient.
Cause today is just tomorrow in disguise.
[P] Can I get you to pick up my flow.
Baby there's something I think you should know.
But words can't express it, it's felt in your soul.
[C] You've got to move on it, and groove on it.
[V2] Life's not just what you see, it can be what you say.
Even if you almost never ever seem to get your way.
And we grasp the low fruit but I can see the whole tree.
Taking in its mystery, I think fuck it this is destiny.
And today is just tomorrow in disguise.
02. Learn To Vibe
[V1] I hope that you feel open when I ask you about the way that you feel.
See my life's about to change for the better, and I need to know that what we've got is real.
[P] See there's no chance, no chance, no chance of me liking anyone much better.
The romance, romance, romance is about to get a whole lot better.
[C] So baby let's take a ride, nothing's gonna kill my vibe.
Cause I got you by my side and nothing's gonna get me down.
So baby let's learn to fly, nothing's gonna kill my vibe.
Cause I got you by my side and nothing's going to get me down.
[V2] I know that you love me much better, in the way you treat me extra fine.
If it's all been done at least we're under the sun and a hottie like you is mine.
[B] You know what I'm feeling.
Not much to conceal from you baby.
So let's not make it complicated.
03. No Word Of A Lie
[V1] You keep on questioning, thinking there's something I'm not mentioning.
I'm not trying to pull one over you.
[P] You know that I'm a do right man. I know that you're a do right girl.
So why would I try and lie to you?
[C] You've just got to believe me. No word of a lie.
[V2] You keep on wondering why, I didn't talk about the other night.
You know there's never too much to say.
[B] I'm one of the honest ones baby. And you've gotta believe me. No word of a lie.
04. Only In Love
[V1] You can't change my heart around. Already planted seeds in the ground.
Man I'm well planted and as stubborn as can be about it.
I don't know why I'm so all about it.
No reason to feel shame about it. Man I just want to scream and shout it.
[C] I'm only in love you with you. You better believe me now.
I'm only in love with you.
Oh yeah. I'm not playing around.
Baby I'm only in love with you.
[V2] Already planted dreams in my heart. Man I'm fantasizing about you and my life around you.
I don't know what I'd do without you. I'll never tire of hanging on.
Oh yeah, your loving makes me strong.
[B] Though I fail to show it sometimes. Well it's strong enough to make me cry.
What's a man to do. I'm only in love with you.
05. No Love Tomorrow
[V] Baby you know I want a miracle. Beauty and a love so spiritual.
And a kiss that makes it difficult to not do again and again.
You've got a side like ebony. And I'm smoked when you kiss me so friendly.
And I move like you mutter lies. But babe it's cause you're giving me butterflies.
[P] And I don't want to wait. Man I want to love.
[C] Love like there's no. No love tomorrow.
Sun like she say. No love tomorrow.
So love like there's no. No love tomorrow.
B] And baby, I'm just so surprised to find.
That I was the man that consumed your mind.
But baby, I don't want to waste my time.
I just want to love.
[V] I've got to find something, yeah.
And it's got to please and satisfy.
And I will be alright.
[P] And it can change your heart
When people are no long true to what you thought they'd do.
[C] We've got kinetic energy. So let's both delete our history.
And we'll roam like we're nomads. Cause we know the world ain't all bad.
And baby when you're next to me. You're the only thing I see.
So we'll roam like we're nomads. Cause we know the world ain't all bad.
[B] No it ain't all bad. No, no, no.
[V2] And I really need something, yeah. And it's got to please and satisfy.
And I will be alright.
[O] Lord it ain't all bad.
07. What's The Deal
[V1] I'll make it easy, believe me.
I've played enough gigs where the man forgot to grease me.
And I sang 'em with my heart and stones.
I'm even paying off an album loan.
But there's math to my equations.
I guess that I just have a little trouble being patient.
[C] Hey man, can you tell me what the deal is?
The real's the real so baby, what's the deal?
I don't ask questions without the desire to know.
[V2] And in the question a lesson.
I've drawn enough blanks maybe it's time for a confession.
But even if I say what's real and true. I'm only speaking to a noble few.
But there's math to my equations.
I guess that I just have a little trouble being…
08. Peace And Power
[C] People with peace need to share their power.
Cause people need power for peace.
How can you live without one or the other.
Power to the people.
[V1] Haters and lovers. Living inside everyone, oh yeah.
Without a doubt I believe. Do unto others in need.
As you'd have them do unto you.
[B] Power to the people in need.
[V2] Wealthy and hungry. Living it so differently, oh yeah.
But stepping in the other shoes, well baby I know what I'd chose.
There'd be freedom for everyone.
09. Sticky Love
[V1] When the situation get to be so sticky?
Life was alright and now it feels so dang tricky.
But I know I should feel lucky about.
All the things that I got when others living without.
[P] I love you so sweet, you're such a sweetie love.
But I get messed up when we're sticky. I can't get high on sticky love.
[C] Love's so tricky. Love's so sticky. Love's so tricky. Love's so…
[V2] I used to get down on a loving so high. But now I'm strapping in for a bumpy ride.
Because sex and money's all we worry about. Maybe cause neither one we can do without.
[B] And it's not the girl. It's just the world. That will never let us be.
[O] I can't get high on sticky love.
