Amos Lee

Standard

Randomly picked up his cd at starbucks because he looks super cute and racially ambiguous on the cover (the face of a young lion–strong)….omigod. I haven’t heard anything this good since the first time i listened to my norah jones cd riding the bus home from downtown seattle on a rainy night…that too was a random cd purchase that worked out for the better. John legend too. i feel like he’ll make it big. Or at least i can guarantee he will be in heavy rotation on my itunes.

Keep it loose, Keep it tight
Well I walked over the bridge
Into the city where I live
and I saw my old landlord
Well we both said hello
There was no where else to go
Cause his rent I couldn’t afford
Well relationships change
Though I think it’s kind of strange
how money makes a man grow

Ah, some people they claim
if you get enough fame
You live over the rainbow
Over the rainbow
But the people on the street,
Out on buses or on feet
We all got the same blood flow
Oh in society every dollar got a deed
We all need a place that we can go and feel over the rainbow

Some times we forget what we got
And who we are and who we are not
I think we got a chance to make it right
Keep it looseKeep it tight Keep it tight

I’m in love with a girl
who’s in love with the world
Though I can’t help but follow
Though I know someday
she is bound to go away
and stay over the rainbow
Got to learn how to let her go
Over the rainbow
But sometimes
we forget who we got
Who they are and
who they are not
There is so much more in love
than black and white
Keep it loose child
You gotta keep tight
Keep it loose child
Keep it tight
Keep it tight
Keep it tight
