about

Words that I wanted to share with the world, though I wrote them as if they were from a higher authority (aka my grandpa and my father) In memory of our pristine origins and ancestry.

lyrics

Well one morning my grandpa, many years ago,
he saw the world around him as he always took it slow
he caught me small and spying, how he lived I had to see
and then I'd come to find, it was he who spied on me
crying in a corner, he tried to stop my tears
said I'll tell you something that I've learned in all my years
he said

don't you let this world ever get you down
cause I know a thing about love, love
he said a man can be a man
a man could be a king
but oh he don't know nothing not until he knows what it means,
that love is all you need and loving its an art
so son you don't know nothing not until you know your heart
until you know your heart

and one morning my father this was so many years ago
he saw the world around him as he always took it slow
he caught me as I'm yelling, I was cursing all this world
I said I'm so sick of this liven and I'm never gonna find a cure
now ho are you so angry son how could you be so mean
to swear before your mother you are disappointing me
now you could be a rebel, or you could be a saint,
but any road you go I know you're gonna feel some pain so,
don't you let this world ever get you down,
cause I know a thing about love
