    IT'S WHAT YOU DO 
    (Jason Mitchell) 

    It's what you do, when no one's watching you 
    A thing so right, you hit it all the time 
    It's how you feel, about a thing so real 
    It's who you are, ain't gotta be a star 
    Ain't gotta be a star 

    It's what you do, like a jones inside of you 
    It's what you need, the thing that keeps you free 
    It's what you do 
    It's what you do, like a jones inside of you 
    It's what you need, the thing that keeps you free 
    It's what you do 

    A burning light, it gets you through the night 
    It follows you in everything you do 
    Just like a need, you gotta do the deed 
    Stuck in your mind and running out of time 
    Running out of time 

    It's what you do, like a jones inside of you 
    It's what you need, the thing that keeps you free 
    It's what you do 
    It's what you do, like a jones inside of you 
    It's what you need, the thing that keeps you free 
    It's what you do 
    It's what you do, like a jones inside of you 
    It's what you do

  • 05:17 Lyrics It's up to You

    IT'S UP TO YOU 
    (Marvin Scott) 

    I got this feeling for you baby 
    I know that you're feeling me too 
    We can do a little something 
    And I gotta leave it up to you 

    I'll be honest with you baby 
    Don't want you for my lady 
    I got my thing to do 
    You and me we can start a groove 
    So what you want to do 

    See it's up to you girl if we're gonna make it 
    You're walking a line and I can't take it 
    It's up to you girl if we're gonna make it 
    This question is real so let's not fake it 

    You say you don't know if you trust me 
    But I say that you just can't hang and go 
    You got a history of heartache 
    And that's something that's out of my control 

    You got to look inside your heart girl 
    Don't mock what you're afraid of 
    Got a cloud hanging over you 
    That's why you're stuck in the blues 
    So what you want to do? 

    See it's up to you girl if we're gonna make it 
    Don't fight the truth, you can't escape it 
    It's up to you if we're gonna make it 
    So give your heart so you can break free 
    Girl talk to me 

    It's up to you 
    It's up to you 

    It's up to you girl 
    It's up to you

NOTES

Break Down on Me

  • 03:18 Lyrics Break Down on Me

    BREAK DOWN ON ME 
    (Jason Mitchell) 

    I found you on the lonely shelf 
    While at the all-night store 

    We got together on a new thing 
    Though we had met before 

    We tried to keep that thing on track 
    Me looking forward, you looking back 

    Never look back if you want the future 
    'Cause you're bound to miss on what's today 

    There's a story inside you 
    But it's too hard for you to say 

    It took a minute to settle in 
    This wasn't gonna be whole again 

    You had to break down on me 
    You had to break down on me 
    A cruel illusion of a fantasy 
    You had to break down on me 

    We tried to keep that thing on track 
    Me looking forward, you looking back 

    Never look back if you want the future 
    You'll rob yourself of what's today 
    And you can't relive it anyway 
    Just an attic filled with your dismay 

    You had to break down on me

NOTES
Break Down on Me is a bit of a departure from our funky sound. This one is more southern soul with rock and blues elements.
