Podcast #27 – What You Get (looky, looky here)

This marks the first and, probably, only time I’ll use the phrase “looky, looky here” in a song. That was the prompt. Not a phrase I would typically use but CHALLENGE ACCEPTED! Also, it’s my first ever attempt at playing bass. Thanks to Margaret for lending me her guitar. It was fun. Rudimentary but it was a blast and I look forward to more attempts.

So, yeah, this song is all about those notorious social network arguments and seeking peace. I don’t like to engage too much in debate on social media but sometimes I can’t keep my mouth shut. I hate to see people being unfair to each other. I try to avoid getting into heated arguments because, really, what does it change and what do I learn from it? It’s always a pleasure to learn from someone with a different perspective if they can present it without tearing other people down but, that’s rare. And, that’s sad. We have so much to learn from each other. Anyway,  I’m really diggin’ the outro. I walk around singing it in my head. Peace and love, people. Peace and love.

ALSO: SPURS WON THE CHAMPIONSHIP! Could not NOT mention that. Gotta say this (and glad to hear more than a few people mention it) every time one of the Spurs was interviewed they talked about the team effort and “we”, as in “we did this together”. It wasn’t about one person, it was about what everyone brought to the table. That’s what I love about the Spurs and that’s what I hope for all of us. Everyone taking ego down a notch and acknowledging the best in each other. Can I get an ‘AMEN’?

What You Get

So maybe I had it coming
the hazard of saying something
loud and clear
But why is it all or nothing
where does the peaceful
middle ground appear
Not to argue or to blame
Not to injure or defame
No, just to testify
If it’s not fair and it’s not right
And I am silent
what kind of soul am I ?

Maybe I’m not the kind
you make me out to be
Maybe it’s just that what you get
is what you choose to see

Why are we always jumping
Before we look we’re rushing
Into war
And there’s no way of telling
if we’re winning, even getting
what we’re fighting for
And in the chaos created
We are shattered and wasted
Until we lose our minds
and if I’m raising my voice
Just to add to the noise
What kind of fool am I?

Maybe I’m not the kind
you make me out to be
Maybe it’s just that what you get
is what you choose to

See me with love in your eyes
(and we’re whole again)
I see you in all of your light
(and we’re whole again)

Looky, looky here…
do I make myself clear
I don’t want a fight
Are we not sisters and brothers
Dependent on each other
to make it right

Maybe I’m not the kind
you make me out to be
Maybe it’s just that what you get
is what you choose to

See me with love in your eyes
(and we’re whole again)
I see you in all of your light
(and we’re whole again)
