You don't need to reinvent the wheel You don't need a Michelin star for every meal And you don't need to stay afraid of anything you feel Breathe deep, back straight and keep an even keel 'Cause we all live in scary, reactionary times Where mapped out muscle memories Call the shots, and trace familiar lines So hold the kneejerk still, see if something else will Show itself to save the day If we can just be kinder and step out of our own ways Negativity seems to follow me My monkey brain just needs a helping hand To feel secure and satisfied, and connected sometimes Don't we all, my friends? Don't we all, my friends? I hope you understand You don't need to reinvent the wheel You don't need a Michelin star for every meal And you don't need to stay afraid of anything you feel Breathe deep, back straight and keep an even keel Negativity seems to follow me My monkey brain just needs a helping hand To feel secure and satisfied, and connected sometimes Don't we all, my friends? Don't we all, my friends? I hope you understand

Sometimes I feel so tired, all I'm doing is killing time And waiting til the time my head hits the pillow The work day drags on slow and long Dream of staying home alone, get up late And sing my songs to the mirror 'Cause it ain't no kind of life to never feel inspired Feeling wired at 9, pacified at 5 Never really feeling quite alive Never really feeling... Never really feeling quite alive So I propose a toast to the things we love the most So here's to my own family, who raised and still look out for me We didn't choose each other but I'm still happy And here's to all those friends I love We don't see each other quite enough But when we do, it hasn't changed all that much 'Cause it ain't no kind of life to never feel inspired Feeling wired at 9, pacified at 5, oh at 5 Never really feeling quite alive Never really feeling... Never really feeling quite alive So I propose a toast to the things we love the most So here's to music, my old friend The one whose love will never end The one thing I will never, ever get sick of And here's to food and coffee, Battered books and gangster movies Football, zen and good good company 'Cause it ain't no kind of life to never feel inspired Feeling wired at 9, pacified at 5, Never really feeling quite alive Never really feeling... Never really feeling quite alive So I propose a toast to the things we love the most

So I fall back on my tribe when I'm feeling half alive And I've struggled and I've strived to no avail And though sometimes, I may protest I feel less stressed, and oh so blessed When I am sharing with the ones I love the best When I am sharing with the ones I love the best I've got to coax myself out of my shell Change 'I' to 'we', you change that 'ill' to 'well' Like a lonely hermit living underneath a rock Or a sheep who's wandered too far from her flock So if you're stuck, and feel you're running out of luck Just reach out to the ones who give a fuck If you're stuck, and feel you're running out of luck Just reach out to the ones who give a fuck I've got to coax myself out of my shell Change 'I' to 'we', you change that 'ill' to 'well' Like a lonely hermit living underneath a rock Or a sheep who's wandered too far from her flock So if you're stuck, and feel you're running out of luck Just reach out to the ones who give a fuck If you're stuck, and feel you're running out of luck Just reach out to the ones who give a fuck So I fall back on my tribe when I'm feeling half alive And I've struggled and I've strived to no avail And though sometimes, I may protest I feel less stressed, and oh so blessed When I am sharing with the ones I love the best

Lay your longing on the line Shed your skin upon the wayside It's a tough old road Even without that heavy load you're carrying (Lay it down, lay it down) Allow yourself a skip in the step, A song in the heart, a deeper breath Allow it all just for a little while Lay your trust upon the wind Let the cards fall where they may, and greet the day 'til Tomorrow unfolds, a brand new hand to play Allow yourself a skip in the step, A song in the heart, a deeper breath Allow it all just for a little while

about

That Bright And Living Spark was written, recorded and produced by Jamie B Sings, 2019-20. Everything played and programmed by me, except Saxophone on 'Things' by Chris Foyle. Many thanks to Chris for his Ruthless Saxbastarding, to BarnOwl Dixon for his awesome photo, to my family for putting up with me and my strange ways, and to you, for listening, when you could be doing anything else.

Love, JB
XOXO
