Keep it Real
Lyrics
Keep it real (2013)
© 2013 Bruce Mills (SOCAN

Oh, you got to keep it real
You got to keep it real, oh

Everything you got to do is gonna have a consequence
Somewhere like butterflies in Africa make rain in LA
And everyone you touch is gonna see your heart and know
Just what you're feeling and if you're OK and if you're really a friend
So what's the matter
When it happens
You got to keep it real

Oh, you got to keep it real
You got to keep it real, oh

Everybody in the world is looking for someone
To hold their hand when things are going bad
And help them find their way
If love is all you got to give then give it all away
To someone looking for some happiness to get them through today
So what's the matter
When it happens
You got to keep it real

Oh, you got to keep it real
You got to keep it real, oh

Chorus
No one ever makes it all the way alone, no
Nothing got to do with right or wrong
Sometimes all we need is someone who is strong
And all we have to do is take the love and pass it on
Just keeping it real, oh

Everybody in the world is looking for a place
To live where people care and everywhere
There's goodness to be found
And everything you got to do is gonna have a consequence
Somewhere so make it good and make it everything you want it to be
Hey what's the matter
It's gonna happen
What's the matter
You're making it happen
No, it don't matter
As long as you're happy
When you're keeping it real

Oh, you got to keep it real
You got to keep it real, oh
