Soul Singer

Pay attention. 
The notes I play 
may move your hips 
and nod your head 
but I'm trying  
to tell you something. 

There's pain in these lyrics. 
Ain't nothing pretty 
about where I came from 
and what I've been through. 
Life's been hard and all 
I can do is sing about it, 

let the aches and pains, 
the tears and heartbreak, 
let it all out, 
tell my story and turn it 
into a groovy tune so 
you all can dance the night away 

and I shine in the spotlight. 
But nights on stage don't 
solve all the problems that 
torment my soul.  So while 
you're enjoying yourself, just 
take a moment to pay attention.
