light years lyrics – jamiroquai

people tell me i’m no good
cos i’m expressin’ all my sentiments
now i got to channel all my vehemence
for the benefit of my self defence
and you can be a do gooder
but true sincerity ain’t charity
it can take a life time to be
how you wanna be.

you can be light years
away from serious intention
and i thought i knew it all
someday
i’d get to turn mankind
this way
if you don’t know you can be light years
away from your true destination. no conscious escalation
until i get with good vibration
i’m never gonna get to use that
use that earthly power
subst*tutes
can never take the place of peace of mind
losing all sense of direction.

when you’re light years.
too far away to turn you back on subst*tution
there is no u-turn on a one way route
goin’ up when i learn to love the life i can bite the fruit
now i got sunshine in my life.

light years
never to return to babylon
see money don’t make a man
but if you really want you get there anyway you can.
