David-gold-record

When I saw the name of this song on David’s blog, I just had to wonder what he’s thinking. I know what I’m thinking…

Hey, stop, do you hear an echo?
I do, but does anyone know?
Same old thing we heard an hour ago
Different band, the same radio

We broke down on the side of the road
East coast, we had to cancel the shows
I’m trying as hard as I can
But I’d rather write a song than a business plan

Because this is me saying words I actually mean
I won’t compromise this thing just to make it

I want to, that’s a given
But, I can’t imagine the same way as you, oh, you
No, I’ll never do the things they do just to make it

Ohh ohh
Ohh, woah
Ohh ohh
Ohh

Singing soul, you say you got it in you
Something to say, well, I don’t hear it in any one of your tunes
The words you heard you reused
You got a hook but it’s no book
Got no soul, just a look

And this is me saying words I actually mean
I won’t compromise this thing just to make it

I want to, that’s a given
But, I can’t imagine the same way as you
Oh, you
No, I’ll never do the things they do just to make it

Ohh, oh

[Spoken]
Honest and real
What happened to having something to say?
Where is the purpose?
What happened?
You made this all become about nothing
This song is not a business plan
We’re losing hope in the world
Create something you love
Follow the formulas
What does it take?
Say what you mean, and not because someone else said it, but because it’s what you feel

Do you even know what you’re even saying?
Or are you just saying it cause someone else said it?
Do you even know what you’re even saying?
Or are you just saying it cause someone else said it?
Do you even know what you’re even saying?
Or are you just saying it cause someone else said it?
Do you even know what you’re even saying?
Or are you just saying it?

I want to, that’s a given
But, I can’t imagine the same way as you
Oh, you
No, I’ll never do the things they do just to make it

I want to, that’s a given
But, I can’t imagine the same way as you
Oh, you
No, I’ll never do the things they do just to make it

Ohh, oh
Ohh, woah
Ohh, oh
Ohh, woah
Ohh oh
Ohh, woah
Ohh, ohh
