Do you feel the fear In the center of your chest? You know it's no one's fault, not even yours, You always try your best to find some love and happiness wherever it may be the moment's telling you hey, you won't be finding it in me so go and Change something, change something, Just try to rearrange something, here goes nothing, There's always more than you know, So know wherever you go it's hard, But you can always try. If you've had enough Of everything you've seen, If you think you've seen it all Then you feel the same as me, But that don't mean I get to lie in bed, With my hands above my head, Saying no to the world when my heart wants to say yes So go and Change something, change something, Just try to rearrange something, here goes nothing, There's always more than you know, So know wherever you go it's hard, But you can always try. We always need something else We forget to remember It's already there on the shelf Where we like to keep ourselves Beyond our worn out broken habits. I'm a dollar short And a half a second late, I couldn't quite express What I really had to say, I know it's fine to feel down, I know I'll turn it all around When we forget who we are It means we get to remember we can Change something, change something, Just try to rearrange something, here goes nothing, There's always more than you know, So know wherever you go it's hard, But you can always try.

Can someone please tell me Why I can't quite seem to find things out? I want to be honest And just lay down all of my feelings, I don't know why I can't seem to go where you go, It's time I started to listen to me, Oh there's nowhere to go, Nothing to be, Time doesn't stop playing its melody, Nowhere to go, Nothing to be, Time doesn't stop playing its melody. Well everyone knows What it's like to live in a prison, Just repeating ourselves On the moments that we come to find, And sometimes I start to wonder if I'm the only one to find this out, Well I need to stop, dead in my tracks, If I'm gonna try, might as well try to relax There's nowhere to go, Nothing to be, Time doesn't stop playing its melody, Nowhere to go, Nothing to be, Time doesn't stop playing its melody. I don't know how to work this out, I don't know how to give up my doubt, Lying awake I clench my fists till I see No one's holding me down, This emptiness I see, well it's actually solid ground, There's nowhere to go, Nothing to be, Time doesn't stop playing its melody, Nowhere to go, Nothing to be, Time doesn't stop playing its melody.

I can hear your footsteps from here I can hear your mind as it races down that path you've worn for years Show me something you think is true I'll show you something else I saw a week ago that I thought was, too. The world keeps spinning faster I don't know just what we're after, no There's not much left to say Our lives are just a debt to pay Does anybody ever get to choose? Life seems true But how do we know what to do? And how do we see right from wrong? I don't know why I wrote this song Floating down a river of doubt We had our creed but we lost it Too bad science figured it out Put a microchip in my brain Plug me into the wall Do what you can to keep my soul from feeling how (Prechorus) (Chorus) x2

You're so much more than I can say, You're so much more than you can feel today, I see your troubled heart, I know just how hard it is to start, But you're already on your way, so, Let it go Let it go Let it go Maybe leap Leap before You look, It's okay love, It's okay love, It's okay love I love you, don't worry, 2x And when you think you're on your own, In my heart you'll always find a home, I see you're worried mind, I'm right here throwing you a line, And you're already on your way, so, Let it go Let it go Let it go Maybe leap Leap before You look, It's okay love, It's okay love, It's okay love I love you, don't worry, 2x Well who am I to save you from your fear? When I have so much of my own, Maybe my heart is not a home, But if we aren't afraid to shed a tear, Then we can make it through the years, No you'll never be alone. Let it go Let it go Let it go Maybe leap Leap before You look, It's okay love, It's okay love, It's okay love I love you, don't worry, 2x

I take a walk, I take a stroll out on the town, See people hanging out, Out on the corner looking down, All the lonely people, oh, They all just stand side by side, Nobody tries to fight the lies, give up their pride. I choose to hope, I choose to love this blessed life, And always reach for something better, Even in the stormy weather, I choose to love, Even when it's raining outside, Until I die, I choose to hope, I choose to hope. So now I sit, At a dime a dozen local bar, People sittin' back, Buck fifty drafts of PBR, The people just pretend they don't care if things work out in the end, I'm still gonna try, I'm still gonna try, I'm still gonna try. I choose to hope, I choose to love this blessed life, And always reach for something better, Even in the stormy weather, I choose to love, Even when it's raining outside, Until I die, until I die, until I die. I choose to love, I choose to love, I choose to love x3 (Chorus) Got to have hope, yeah that's for sure, Gotta get that lovin' even more, I choose to love, I choose to love, yeah.

about

These songs are all, in some way, about getting comfortable with your true self. They mean the world to me, and I hope you’ll give them a listen.
