Lyrics

[Intro] Music makes me high
Rockin rhythm soothes my mind
Simple songs like this they stop the world
They can set me free
With that melody
And that harmony…

[1] When my thinking—brings me down
Turns my smile—to a frown
Easy answers—can’t be found
Right side up looks—upside down
When I’m sinking—to the ground
And I feel it—pound for pound
I keep listening—for a sound
Then I hear it—and it turns me all around

Music makes me high
Rockin rhythm soothes my mind
Simple songs like this they stop the world
They can set me free
With that melody
And that harmony

[2]When I’m hungry—in my soul
And I’m tired—in my bones
When I’m thirsty—in my veins
And I’m wired—in my brain
When I’m lonely—in my heart
Just about to—fall apart
And the teardrops—fill my eyes
So I listen—and it’s then I realize

Music makes me high
Rockin rhythm soothes my mind
Simple songs like this they stop the world
Get my toes to curl
When that dancing beat
Rushes to my feet

[3] When my mood is—tippin low
And my groove is—just so-so
Can’t be hangin—with my folk
Don’t find humor—in the joke
Got no power—got no flow
Got no get up—got no go
Seems I lost it—my mojo
Then I listen—as the band begins to blow

Music makes me high
Rockin rhythm soothes my mind
Simple songs like this they stop the world
They can set me free
With that melody
And that harmony
