Gregory Porter - Don't Lose Your Steam Lyrics




Sitting on the top of the roof, the bridge is all mine
Steam engines roll by, the bridges fall down and so do my dreams

Boy, you hear me calling your name
The bridge is your time
Your engine rolls hot
If the bridges fall down, don't lose your head of steam

Young man, I'm counting on you
And whoa, young man, I'm counting on you

Boy, I didn't make it too far, but baby you are
The family star
I'll tighten your seams
Don't lose your head of dreams
Boy, you hear me calling your name
The bridge is your time
Your engine rolls hot
If the bridges fall down, don't lose your head of steam

Young man, I'm counting on you
And whoa, young man, I'm counting on you
To get me to the other side
Hey, hey hey hey, hey

This foot-pound pressure is new
Whatever you do is up to you
But do me this do: don't lose your head of dreams

Young man, I'm counting on you
And whoa, young man, I'm counting on you

Young man, I'm counting on you
And whoa, young man, I'm counting on you
And whoa, young man
You are now the man

Whoa, whoa, young man
I'm-a counting on you, hey hey hey
You are now the man
Can you get me to the other side?
Can you get me to the other side?
Hey, hey hey hey, huh huh
Hey hey, huh huh, hey hey hey
Don't lose your head of steam
Don't lose your head of steam

  9. Joshua Fraser

    I appreciate and kove his music...but his wife is a santanist. If dalls into the industry we who feel will feel the soul go away. Never since Nina Simone have I ever been so mentally and emotionally moved through the band and the voice are one. There isn't another entity that can produce such rarity.

    TWLuck

    +jimipurple123 How do you turn a duck into a soul singer? Put it in the microwave until it's Bill Withers.

    orangecucamonga

    Withers is close. Or maybe (in this song only) Jack Sheldon from Schoolhouse Rocks: "I am just a bill...and I'm sitting here on Capitol Hill".

    Danyell Cole

    I just said that, on one of his other songs, ole skool, yeah real music with meaning is coming back :-), thank you Gregory

    Miles davis
