Tom Prasada-Rao: songs

Yes

(The Sherpas)
TPR & Tom Kimmel
TK asked me a question one day when we were trying to figure out what our next song was going to be. What's the sexiest word in the English language?
yes

it ought to be easier
to talk about love
shouldn’t be a problem baby
to keep it on the up and up
when the whole world gets complicated
it gets out of hand unless

I say yes, I say yes
I say yes I will, yes I do
hold the line I walk with you
with every little step I confess
that’s the way I feel about it when I say yes

we could read a lot of books about it
we could spend a lot of dough
to get to where we started baby
to get to where we need to go
and the whole world gets complicated
but baby love is unimpressed

til I say yes, I say yes
I say yes I will, yes I do
sanctify my love for you
it’s not the kind of thing you finesse
ain’t no way around it baby when I say yes

and the whole world gets complicated
like it’s all some kind of test
then it feels like we’ll never make it
and it’s anybody’s guess

til I say yes, I say yes
I say yes I can, yes I do
love the dream I dream with you
baby when the dream is undressed
nothing more to say about it when I say yes
