Welcome

RPM 2013

I’m not who I was
don’t judge me
on memories and dust
they’re nothing
but footprints in my past
forgotten
never coming back
I’ve lost them

but I’m searching pretty hard
for new life
step out from the dark
into light
lean against the wind
that pushes
breathe a little bit
and trust this

welcome to the here
and now
welcome to
how the hell does this work out
welcome to the
cuts and bruises
working through it
trying not to
let them down

I come off sort of rough
and ragged
my edges may be much
too jagged
but give a little time
and maybe
I could learn to shine
like they need

but everything’s so fast
and fragile
I feel the threads of this
unravel
hope I have the strength
to mend it
be the one that they’ve
expected

trying not to
let them see
all the doubt that’s lingering
in my head
in myself
I try hard to do this well
I try hard to do this right
I am trying not to let them down

Wow…..I am impressed! I love the honesty in your voice and lyrics. I also love how this song sounds like conversation, almost. Beautiful voice, great bgv’s, love the cello.

This kicks butt – I like how the different vocal layers interact with the stringed instrument (cello?) and the drum track.
