Halftime

Album: Lioness: Hidden Treasures (2011)
  • Simple sweet guitar
    Humbled by the bass
    So when the beat kicks in
    Everything falls into place
    And it overpowers me
    I can't help but dance
    You can try to stop me now
    But you won't get the chance

    Half time
    Time to think it through
    Consider the change
    See it from a different view
    Half time
    Time to think it through
    Consider the change

    Rhythm floods my heart
    The melody it feeds my soul
    The tune tears me apart
    And it swallows me whole
    You should thank your lucky stars
    'Cause the music is a gift
    And it's stronger than all else
    Provides me with uplift

    Half time
    Time to think it through
    Consider the change
    See it from a different view
    Half time
    Time to think it through
    Consider the change

    My lyrics revealing
    Some natural vibe
    Some kind of laid back feeling
    Oh, just let it ride
    And when Frank Sinatra sings
    It's too much to take
    So I sing the standard shit
    It pacifies my ache

    Half time
    Time to think it through
    Consider the change
    See it from a different view
    Half time
    Time to think it through
    Consider the change
