1975 [radio edit] - Lyrics

He said goodbye to the canon ball
When Curtis Jackson was yet to crawl
He had a photo of a Gran Torino
From Ohio to the wall

He got deeper into the sound
When the big debate was Watergate
My Lina and my brotha made it clear like makin' love

He remembers the boogie boy down the house
The DJ's turnin' out in 1975
He surrenders this total incomplete down to his dancing feet
And he gave it up for love, and he gave it up for love

He gave it up for love
He gave it up for love
He gave it up for love

Sent in a plane with the wings on fire
And when the world came his heart desire
He met a girl freckles on her face
They found a place for the summer

This was a time of space and rhapsody
His hair was long lord knows the sound was funky
Herby and Stevie held the keys to his fantasy

He remembers the boogie boy down the house
The DJ's turnin' out in 1975
He surrenders this total incomplete down to his dancin' feet
And he gave it up for love

It wasn't gravity that kept him there, umm
But the music and the magic in the air
It wasn't gravity that kept him there, umm
But the music and the magic in the air

He gave it up for love
He gave it up for love
He gave it up for love

He remembers the boogie boy down the house
The DJ's turnin' out in 1975
He surrenders this total incomplete down to his dancing feet
And he gave it up for love, and he gave it up for love

He gave it up for love
He gave it up for love
He gave it up for love
