This is a feel good tune with one of my favorite basslines I ever wrote. Inspired by Sublime for sure....had my lovely partner Demi Mays singing backups on this and I'm looking forward to featuring her more in my music and helping her with her own originals....she brings down the house!


I tell you what I really need
I said I need this air that I breathe
I need the water, I need the sea
like I need the river, to sustain me
but what I really need,
I need that good love within me to shine through me
and I need good friends by my side
I don't need no deception I don't need those lies
as I don't need to worry for the rest of my life
cause I got what I really need oh
I need that good love within me to shine through me

and I would take that Pocahontas if she's free
I'd love Odysseus's Penelope I'm talkin bout
the kind of woman that could help me get along and
be beside me all of my life long
as we swim along the river naked in the sea
can't ask for nothing long as she's with me
that's what I really need, oh
I need that good woman's loving to stand by me
