about

The world is inundated with endless information and problems these days. It is truly hard to realize where you fit and how you actually feel. There is an urge inside to get back to our roots, back to love, and simplicity. Don't fight the feelin'.

In our day and age, human interaction has become a rarity. Everyone is overtaken and overwhelmed with the sense of immediacy, outward appearance, and the EGO overall. Technology and social media have replace normal social interaction and numbed our hearts and minds. We have this call beckoning inside us, in our humanity, that seems to almost demand us to slow down and connect again. This feeling is the one the song is describing. It's a gut feeling, but more so a feeling of love that intertwines with the idea of the mass-consciousness that we are all a part of. No matter your religion, or lack there of, we are all spiritual beings. We are all animals. We are all in this together. We are all simply trying to find our purpose and survive. Maybe it's time we evolve instead while remembering our basic roots and what makes us the beings we are. Don't fight the feelin.

lyrics

Dont Fight The Feelin’ (written by Donna Hopkins and BJ Wilbanks)

Oh baby I know you’re trying
with all your might to just get by
that you forget to slow yourself down

And things move so fast these days
the world’s too buys for us to see
the real things are what we really need

Oh so want you just, take me back to the younger days,
when thing weren’t so complicated
And maybe we could finally change, Baby!

(Chorus)
Don’t Fight the feeling
It’s alright to take it in
Just let you worries disappear, far away from here
Oh far away from here

Slow it down honey don’t go so fast
Grab a piece of something and make it last
There ain’t no use in working your life away

Don’t look around honey look inside
What you put in you’ll get back in time
Express yourself and let your freak flag fly

Oh so won’t you just, take me back to the younger days
When things weren’t so complicated
And maybe we could finally breathe, baby

(Chorus)

Far away from here (let your worry disappear),
Far away from here (cmon let your worry disappear)
Far away from here (let your worry disappear)
Far away from___________here!

Oh so won't you just, take me back to the younger days
throw on some Marvin Gaye, and maybe we could finally change, baby

(Chorus)
