When I was a younger man
 People say don't dream too tall
'Cause if you live your life this way
You set yourself up for big falls 
I stay up late in my room at night 
Play my hoes on my turntable  Opened me to pure phat groove 
Help my soul break down them walls 

I thank you
I thank you for all the music 
That you've shown to me
I thank you
'Cause you set me free
Free to simply just be me

You don't know all the influence 
The subtle positives that you had on me
Came about like a renaissance 
Like a little happy dance, got into my feet
But in your time, the roads you chose 
Led you to your hard luck blues 
I always feared what it was like
To live inside your big old shoes 

Do ya love music, I do
Do ya love music, I do
