FOR THE LOVE OF MUSIC

I'm not in it for the money, I'm not in it for the perks
I'm not in it to be big time, I don't need the soundtrack or the t-shirt
I don't care if I'm on the tele, I don't need to win awards
I just want to feel my own feet tap dancing on the floor boards

For the love of music For the love of music I live my life

People always ask if I know where I'm a going
Well, I say I'm headin' south now where the chilly winds ain' blowin'
I've been looking my whole life, been chasing the devil's muse
From the mountains to the cities to the foothills of the blues

For the love of music For the love of music I live my life

Never thought I'd live past the age of twenty-five
But the older I get, you know the more thankful I'm to be alive
And if there's one thing that I know, it's that music stirs my soul

I'm not trying to fool any one, I'm not motivated by greed
I just wanna share my flowers that are blooming among the weeds

For the love of music
For the love of music
I live my life
