"Work It Out" as written by Traci Colleen Hale, Christopher A. Stewart and Thabiso ...
[Dave Matthews - Chorus]
A don't stop stop your dreamin
Let yourself float upon the notion
We can work it out, we gon work it out baby
Go ahead lose yourself inside this opportunity
That we gonna make it right now, make it right now

[Marc 7even]
We live and we learn, we crash and we burn
Right now my only rhyme is this lesson I learned
You talk about trust, I talk about lust
Its not appealin as you truly speak your feelings
I be lookin at the ceiling, so concealing
I shoulda put my heart on the table
Knowin I was good and able but instead I fed your fables
If I could have you back best believe it'd be forever
Cause each and every day you would hear those four letters


[Chali 2na]
These are different times but we feel the same pains
The blood of mankind runnin through the same veins
We'd like to make it right some which it remain tame
Same crimes even though they names changed
And we like different minds workin off the same brain
Passengers on different cars steppin off the same train
In the end, makin it rights the main aim
Different parts of the picture highlight the same frame


Now if you know what I know you need to work it out (work it out)
If you ain't happy with yourself you need to work it out (work it out)
You havin problems with your family then work it
The things we go through just to work it
I work it out when the situations seems unworkable
Unreversible but God is most merciful
Many works, Many men converse
With soul search sweat it out
When they tryin to work it out

With the constant complaint, we either gonna make it fly
Or we ain't, I already know what some of ya think
Ima talk a hip hop and how bad its got
Then tryna pull a brother, I'm not
Lookin for nobody to judge
You said you ain't I never thought you was
I'm just tryna get with ya and pose in the same picture
So this mic thing can move the right thing do the right thing
Made for your life game, plus my man might sing

[Chorus: x 2]

    General CommentOkay well I think this song is about working out (fixing the problems in) all aspects of your life!

    You and your lover -> work it out

    You and society -> work it out

    You and yourself -> work it out

    and then just explaining the song in the last verse I suppose. They aren't saying they know everything or that they're judging people and their problems, they're just saying if a song can help then try to work it out.

    I love the song and I love how someone different does each verse and Dave Matthew's smooth, dreamish voice links them all together.

    General Commentyeah i must say i think J5 puts a positive picture in my head about hip hop........... never been much of a rap person however j5 is soooo about the music............its nice for lyrics in rap to mean something instead of "lean back" or "everybody in da club gettin tippsy" i swear its soooo fuckin lame but this great stuff i think i am gonna look further into these guys

    General CommentLame heartbeats. Why would you point that out to someone else? Its like one of those things you either dont notice or it doesnt bother you until someone else points it out. THANK YOU, I REALLY APPRICIATE IT.

    Anyway, no one actually wrote what they thought it was all about. Anyone want to give feedback on the song?
