I Can Feel The Love

from by Mission Man



I will overcome this writer's block
As I fight this clock
And fit time into the tightest spot
Mine is not
The story that you normally hear
Time to open our hearts with warm and free ears
I won't give you a cold shoulder
As I grow older
I just have to let the ice melt
And tell you how I've felt
And use my passion
To make all this happen
For almost 20 years I've been rapping
It never matters
If I'm a better batter
When the record shatters
So long as I have respect for the game
When I step to the plate what people expect from my name
Is that I'll have left how I came
I was taking a swing with a glimmer in my eye
So it shimmers up so high
That's why the fire never simmers on the side
It always burns full steam
So you'll dream
As strongly as I do
And I'm true
When I tell you
That the way
I play
Makes me feel the love
I can feel the love
I can feel the love

Tour time
Time to lay it all on the line
And see if I can make a living off my mind
And my rhymes
See if time
Is kind
Or if I have to rewind
To find
My glory days
So I can ignore the ways
I've made mistakes in the past
And make this last
Sleeping in my car
I don't care if I'm a star
I'm just doing what I love
And that's more than enough
To overcome the rising odds
And see their eyes and nods
Watching the sparkle grow into a fire light
They can see that my desire's right
So they spare what they can
With their loving hands

I'm on tour and I can feel the love

Sometimes I feel like I'm living the life of a Jedi without the abilities
Silly me
Time to see
If I can move objects with my mind
To find
The strength to lift the ship from the dirt
So we can remove the sith from the earth
I'm back in my hometown
And what I know now
Is that everything has slowed down
I'm back with friends
So it begins again
Feeling the record spin and then
Feeling my heart beat
Lighting the way down the dark street
Letting my memories guide my way
There's no way they'll die today
I'm so happy that I might stay
Until my passion brings me back for more
Eventually I'll be back on tour
But I'm home now and I can feel the love
From my hometown I can feel the love
