about

Music video is here: www.youtube.com/watch?v=EFfysM8SJxc

This song was written at Berwick Camp by myself and Marc Richard, with help from a few others. The song is not really supposed to have a deeper meaning than the idea that we should all chill out just a bit more =)

lyrics

Gimme a break, gimme a break now
Sweet relief
Gimme a break, gimme a break now
Don't be my thief

[Marc scats]

Marc what you singing about?
you're just singing your song
you're just singing the words as they come along

Are you just singing the words
that you feel you should say
but are you singing the same old stuff everyday

'Cos if you're doing the same thing
that you always do,
do you sometimes wish that what you do would be through?

Like when the pressure gets too high,
do you feel you're gonna cook?
Would you rather settle down to a good book?
Gimme a break!

Gimme a break, gimme a break now
Some time to relax
Gimme a break, gimme a break now
Before my skull cracks

Gimme a break, gimme a break now
Sweet relief
Gimme a break, gimme a break now
End my grief

[keyboard solo]
Gimme a break!

Gimme a break, gimme a break now
Sweet relief
Gimme a break, gimme a break now
Don't be my thief

Gimme a break, gimme a break now
Cut me some slack
Gimme a break, gimme a break now
We'll get back on track

Yo I just need a friend
Not an enemy trying to play pretend
Everybody seems to have a need
I just want someone to let me breathe

The world seems so stressed out
but it's the little things they worry about
--Gimme a break!

Gimme a break, gimme a break now
Sweet relief
Gimme a break, gimme a break now
Don't be my thief

Gimme a break, gimme a break now
Let's be who we are
Gimme a break, gimme a break now
Piece of that KitKat bar!
