Love, Funk and Soul

from by Mission Man



Chorus: This isn't sex, drugs, and rock'n'roll
It's just love, funk and soul

I don't care if you drink or not
Until you think I'm hot
I'm coming everyday giving it all I've got
Waking up, driven by love
Everyday, yes, now I'm giving enough
It's not about living it up
It's about staying grounded
And hopefully leaving this place better than I found it
It's not about drinking 'til I'm plastered
Making everything go faster and faster
It's about staying sober
Taking it slower
Breathing it in
Feeling the grin
Chillin' with friends
And I'll do it again
It's not about spending my money, it's about earning my time
And learning to find
All the simply joys
Instead of being annoyed
By the little things
I won't let them give me brittle wings
Instead I'll soar with the strength of an eagle
And I choose to be full
Spreading love to my people


Right now
I'll spend the night out
But I'll remember that tomorrow matters too
And I won't let the sorrow splatter through
As I follow after you
I'm not a wham, bam thank you ma'am
One night stand
I won't hit it and quit it
Because I believe in commmitment
We've been together for 2 decades now
And I still feel like I'm getting this down
Because it's building me up
Filling my cup
With the water I need
Loving the air that I breathe
And for this reason I believe
