LYRICS

Verse 1

Well look is music
Iíve been, loving for so long
Well look is music
Within me, well is so strong
Say you may never know how I love it so
(Possesses me,
could never see (never see)) x 2
Well look is music
you may think that Iím crazy
Well look is music
feel no pain Iím so happy
Well look is time to go, to put on a show
Itís in my heart
could never part (never part)
Deep in my heart, could never part

Chorus

Everyone into this world
have their own pot of ah gold
When all stories are told music is,
Is meh business
If you could see it, yes it so true
Ah say between me and you
Thereís so much we can do
You better believe -
Itís no fantasy, I tell yuh -
So music alone, music alone
Is meh business I say

Verse 2

So when is music -
donít you know, no skylarking
So when is music,
Look at me Iím not joking
So when you come to me, for my ability
(Donít ever feel
Itís not for real (not for real)) x 2
So when is music itís my pain,

Say well is music
Itís my gold, only treasure
So well is just like you,
and the things you do
How you does elevate
What they appreciate (appreciate)
How you just cyah wait
For them to compensate (compensate)

Every man into this world

You better believe itís no fantasy
I tell you so - music alone,
Music alone is meh business I say

Verse 3

Say well is music keeping me above water
Say well is music
Blessing me with every measure
So when I soar to-be, reach my destiny
(Must understand

Say well is music
Everything that Iím feeling
Say well is music giving my life,
Oh that meaning
So whether rain or shine all I want is mine
Then you and I
would be in harmony (in harmony)
Then you and I
could be In perfect harmony

Chorus

Every man into this world
have their own pot of gold
When all stories are told music is -
Is meh business
If you could feel it, yes itís so true
Ah say between me and you
Thereís so much we can do
You better believe itís no fantasy
I tell yuh so - music alone
Music alone, is meh business I say
