Lyrics

BRING IT BACK

Written By: Brent Strathdee

Chorus:
Bring It Back!
Bring it all back
Bring back the feeling that we used to have
Bring It Back
Bring it all back
Classic music, I keep that intact!

DIRTY

Written By: Seth Suter

Chorus:
I will follow you and
I will question you
I will pull you back
If you turn your back on me
Dont turn your back

BREAK

Written By: Brent Strathdee

Verse 2:
What you think and what you say matters
Misconceptions and doubt I shatter
Put in a verse and spin it on the platter
While the poor get poorer and the rich get fatter
What ya think is cool and whats not
When on your own or just one of the flock
Ive said it before and I'll say it again
Dont get wrapped up in your own opinion
