about

Searching for an answer to anything requires a lot of effort
and determination but some people look for answers in the
strangest of places and always expect others to find it or
reveal it for them.
As usual, answers always hide where you look last, and
come just when you least expect them!
A Funky slice of Blacktop with a monster groove and some
nice Alto Sax work too.

lyrics

You’ve been down, following this and that.
Under a frown yeah, wearing a wishing hat.
Chasing a ride, hoping to cut some slack.
Always denied yeah, with never an answer back.
Chorus
Who can live life a diplomat?
And never ask this or question that
Taking a chance of falling flat.
It don’t work like that.
It don’t work like that.
It don’t work like that.
It don’t work like that.
You gotta’ run, before you can walk they say.
Chasing the one yeah, keeping the wolf at bay
It’s mighty strange, how many get in your way
Pursuing change yeah, avoiding their judgement day.
Chorus
You’d be excused, for thinking it gone to Rats
But don’t refuse yeah, to sit on a wisdom mat.
Truth be told, it’s never that far away.
A heart of gold yeah, will save you on any day.
Chorus to end
