**Chorus** Don’t know what it is But you’ve got me smiling again Well it’s something you do Now I’m believing in love again **Verse 2** I know you’ll treat me like a queen Now I know what the singers mean When they croon about cloud nine And the beauty they have seen But it’s right in front of me I’m gonna get it, I’m gonna get it Although you don’t belong to me It’s by your side I wanna be Yeah you give me good feeling My soul’s healing Got me believing in something And even if you end up leaving me Got me believing in something **Chorus** Don’t know what it is But you’ve got me smiling again Well it’s something you do Now I’m believing in love again Yeah you give me good feeling My soul’s healing Got me believing in something And even if you end up leaving me Got me believing in something **Chorus** Don’t know what it is But you’ve got me smiling again Well it’s something you do I’m believing in love again Well it’s something you do Now I’m believing

**Verse 1** She said that she would wait for you That’s what she said She said she’d never be untrue That’s what she said No you don’t care what people tell you bout Time the magician They just want you to feel better but you don’t wanna listen You’ve heard it all before And even if you did, you wouldn’t give a shit Cos it doesn’t stop the pain, believe me I know But you’ve got a friend, why don’t you call on him Time the healer He heals all wounds Time the healer **Verse 2** It’s not the load that weighs you down It’s how you carry it around, the healer Hold your head up and be proud You were lost but now you’re found, the healer Scars to prove the pain was real Drugs to change the way you feel Call yourself and make a deal to beat it Well that’s the way to go, it’s hard i know But it doesn’t stop the pain, believe me I know You’ve got a friend, her name is Time the healer Time the healer Time the healer Time the healer

about

The Sunday Times:
"a cast of impeccable musicians bathe the Dubliner's neo-soul songs in crisp and uncluttered R&B, pop and funk."

Goldenplec:
"With ‘The Lookout’, Danny G & the Major 7ths have a produced an album that is a groove-laden joy to behold, a record that delivers perfectly polished positive vibes."

TLMT:
"The Lookout is all about style. A sharp and sophisticated sophomore album from Danny G & The Major 7ths, The Lookout makes an impression that begs repeat playthroughs. From its tailored production, rich musical interplay and slick songwriting this is a record that is genuine in its stylistic design."

IndieBuddie:
"Danny G & the Major 7ths’ ‘The Lookout’ is a smooth dose of retro soul, drizzled in R&B hues and lush pop tones. Exuding velvety vocals bathed in silken musicianship, each song is a wonderful easy listening experience to indulge in"

2nd album from Irish neo-soul group Danny G & the Major 7ths. Featuring an all star cast, 16 musicians in total. Conceived for vinyl but also available digitally.

The Lookout is a natural progression from the retro soul feel of debut Love Joints (2014) to a deeper, more mature, richer sound. The title is a nod to looking outward. Whereas 'Love Joints' was mostly introspective, the songs on The Lookout are either about other people and relationships (Time the Healer) or wider issues (When It All Runs Out) - with this song in particular the title 'The Lookout' also doubles as a warning (Look out!).

The album is inspired by artists such as D'Angelo, Erykah Badu, Marvin Gaye, Prince, Stevie Wonder, CSN, Deniece Williams, Roy Hargrove, Lauryn Hill, Jimi Hendrix and many more. For inspiration & influences, check out the song-by-song breakdown on my podcast made especially for this album:
