about

Bold and alluring, “Straight to the Heart of It” is a buoyant waltz about the courage it takes to believe you deserve the best in love.
Heeding the sounds of classic R&B/soul with a jazzy gospel feel, Kristin Fung’s powerful vocal belt and assured piano chops, the buttery voices of twin brothers Jonathan and Kyle Boddie, and an all-star Canadian cast, including rising star Anh Phung (flute) and Toronto veterans Rich Brown (bass), Max Senitt (drums), and Eric St-Laurent (guitar), set sail for a sassy, playful, and somewhat quirky six minutes.

lyrics

This is a love letter
But it might not be for you
It might be for a future you, or someone else
And that's okay
Because honey, I'm looking for a love that I deserve
I'm ready to move forward into the depths of your heart, mind, body, and soul
And if you're not ready for a love this big, baby, I understand
You need some time to sort out your stuff, right?
But for me, I'm not going to waste my time
I'm ready to get right to the point
That's who I am
That's how I love
And I'm willing to wait for the right one, but when the right one comes along...

I wanna go straight to the heart of it (straight to the heart of it)
None of this inconsequential beating around
Straight to the heart of it (straight to the heart of it)
No more wasting time, wasting mine (ooh)
Deep in the zone of it (deep in the zone)
This is a matter of lost and found (this is a matter of lost and found)
And oh, I think I better tell you what I mean...

But I can't go on
Living life in this temporary sort of way (oh no)
When you say, "Love is just for this moment"
"Love is just for today"
I'm going crazy (crazy)
With jealousy (jealousy)
Now, you shouldn't be looking at her (looking at her)
Oh no
You should be looking at me (looking at me)

I wanna go straight to the heart of it (straight to the heart of it)
None of this inconsequential beating around
Straight to the heart of it (straight to the heart of it)
No more wasting time, wasting mine (ooh)
Deep in the zone of it (deep in the zone)
This is a matter of lost and found (this is a matter of lost and found)
And oh, I think I better tell them about it...

I got a lot of baggage, baby
And you got a lot of baggage, baby, too
I got a lot of baggage, baby, but it's okay
Cause you got a lot of baggage, baby, yes, you do
I got a lot of baggage, baby, but it's okay
Cause you got a lot of baggage, baby, but it's okay
Said I got a lot of baggage, baby, but it's okay
Cause you got a lot of baggage, oh, and I wanna go

Straight to the heart of it (straight to the heart of it)
None of this inconsequential beating around
Straight to the heart of it (straight to the heart of it)
No more wasting time, wasting mine (ooh)
Deep in the zone of it (deep in the zone)
This is a matter of lost and found (woah, woah, woah)

I got a lot of baggage, baby, but it's okay
Cause you've got a lot of baggage, baby, but it's okay
I got a lot of baggage, baby, but it's okay
Cause you've got a lot of baggage, baby, now

I got lots and lots and lots and lots and lots and lots and lots and lots and lots and lots of baggage for you
I've got lots and lots and lots and lots and lots and lots and lots and lots and lots and lots of baggage for you
I've got lots and lots and lots and lots and lots and lots and lots and lots and lots and lots of...
baggage for you
And that's how we're gonna carry on
That's how we're gonna carry on
Lots and lots
Lots and lots and lots and lots
Yeah
Lots and lots and lots and lots and lots and lots and lots
(How much baggage you got)
