Song Background: Keep That Energy

The song length is 3:15, which is one of the longest I’ve made. The song felt like it was meant to be which ultimately led to me posting it online. I made the beat one morning just playing around with a new piano plug-in I had recently found. It had a laid-back vibe to it, so telling people to keep negative energy was the only way to go.

I made this song this time last year and felt like it was something the world needed to hear. Fast forward to now and I still feel the message is helpful. When I made the song, I was looking outward hoping that someone would hear it and it would make their day better. But over the year of it’s been out, I’ve found myself going back several times to it to get me out of a rut. Read the lyrics and let me know how the song makes you feel.

Lyrics:

This is BFK
And all y’all out there with that hate
You can Keep That Energy

If you hating how I look
Gone Keep That Energy man
Trying me to see me shook
Gone Keep That Energy man
Tryna read me like a book
Gone Keep That Energy man
We don’t need negative energy be positive man
If you hating how I look
Gone Keep That Energy man
Trying me to see me shook
Gone Keep That Energy man
Tryna read me like a book
Gone Keep That Energy man
We don’t need negative energy be positive man

I ain’t the tallest
That’s easy to see
Yet I’m, still reaching all these goals
Long as I am me
Ones with the bad vibes
Time to move you out the way
We’ve got to fill this place with love
It can not wait another day
When I said Keep That Energy I mean it
A battery explodes when it is low
I’ve seen it
Believe it or not, love is never hot
Unless your hand is in the cookie jar
Then you’re getting caught
For the ones that’s here supporting me, I thank you
Been on a ship that’s on a shore that shoulda sank too
Oh there’s someone else, that I wanna thank too
Anybody telling me, what I can and can’t do
Hey dude, can’t you be happy least for a day
And not tryna fight somebody cause they in yo way
Okay I get it looking hard its for the females
But love is something that you’ll never find in retail

If you hating how I look
Gone Keep That Energy man
Trying me to see me shook
Gone Keep That Energy man
Tryna read me like a book
Gone Keep That Energy man
We don’t need negative energy be positive man
If you hating how I look
Gone Keep That Energy man
Trying me to see me shook
Gone Keep That Energy man
Tryna read me like a book
Gone Keep That Energy man
We don’t need negative energy be positive man

So you damn near past the point of no return
Getting angry fast
Gone let that incense burn
Give yourself time
Can you breathe a little slow
You be just fine
This is how you learn to grow
Think about your past
Look at what you’ve overcome
Pain be coming fast
This from what you will become
You’ll be on to something
Saying it’s for a reason
Every flower blossoms
Within it’s own season
Keep That Energy is something I will need to say
When I’m so upset
That I don’t want to play today
I know it’s not okay for me to snap on everybody
Hoping you get the message its not gone be my hobby
Am I snobby cause I need a little space
I can promise you that ain’t gone ever be the case
Some respect is, all that you can send to me
If you don’t like me you can gone with that energy

If you hating how I look
Gone Keep That Energy man
Trying me to see me shook
Gone Keep That Energy man
Tryna read me like a book
Gone Keep That Energy man
We don’t need negative energy be positive man
If you hating how I look
Gone Keep That Energy man
Trying me to see me shook
Gone Keep That Energy man
Tryna read me like a book
Gone Keep That Energy man
We don’t need negative energy be positive man

This is to all of those out there
That got hate for no reason
Gone Keep That Energy
