IT'S A GROOVE, THIS LIFE

It’s a Groove, This Life (JVE ReMix)

The album, Subtlety & Passion (Blue Infinity Music) with the original version of this song … is my homage to Chicago. The band wasn’t feeling good about recording, so I just carried on with songs that could have easily been Chicago’s early 2000’s album. The lyric is about dear loved ones and acquaintances, some of  whom cause dismay … but life flows on.

IT’S GROOVE, THIS LIFE

I'VE ALWAYS BEEN A DREAMER

I HIT THE FLOOR A-RUNNING

BUT I DON'T FORGET TO PRAY

JOY JOY IS A COMER

SOON SHE'S GONNA HAPPEN

A THINKER WITH A LOT TO SAY

IT'S A GROOVE, THIS LIFE

MY DEAR FRIEND IS A DRINKER

TAN AND ALCOHOLIC

HIS BONES ARE BLEACHING IN THE SUN

MACKIE IS A SCHEMER

SAYS HE GOT SOME MUSIC

COULDN'T GET ARRESTED WITH A GUN

BUT IT'S A GROOVE THIS LIFE

IT'S A GROOVE

FRANKIE IS A DRIVER

PAST THE AGE OF REASON

USED TO BE A GREEN BERET

WHAT'S UP WITH THE SUMMER?

BOOM! AND THEN IT'S OVER

GO AHEAD AND MAKE MY DAY

BUT IT'S A GROOVE THIS LIFE

IT'S A GROOVE

I GET IMPATIENT WITH TOO MUCH TALK

LUCKY I CAN STILL WALK THE WALK

CAN'T BE RUNNIN' FROM THE DEVIL NOW

SO YOU TRY TO MAKE HIM INTO YOUR FRIEND

FASTER AND FASTER YOU PLAY

CLOSE AND CLOSER YOU GET TO THE DAY

SO CLOSE TO THE END
