I love it when I find a gem that hasn’t been released yet, like this one.
I’m so feeling this whole song right now, from the sweet and raspy vocals to the tired and honest message in the lyrics. I also really love the guitars and the beat and the major verse to the minors in the chorus… It’s exactly describing my feelings about life these days.
Someone randomly said to me today, “Sometimes, you have to be the one to make the first move.”
Maybe to be moved, you have to first move yourself.
I encounter this conundrum with creativity all the time. In every area.
The first step to freedom is always movement: saying what you want out loud.
Move the lips.
“I want a better schedule.”
“I want to sing songs.”
“I want to go on a trip.”
Spoken aloud, it exists. It has a chance to survive and become something real.
OR, you hear how ridiculous it sounds, and you can put it away for good.
Either way. Honesty is the best policy. (HA! Didn’t we learn that in…. school? See the first lyrics…)
Every step’s been shown to you
Like all those years you were in school
What they said is what you say
What they saw is what you see
You like a clear drawn line
Partitioned and defined
So you can rest in knowing everything’s as it should be
But I want you to move me….
Oh, we’ve got our back and forth
And always stay the course
Talking quickly doesn’t leave much time for questioning
So much is repetition
We mimic all decisions
And walk the same line just because we know we’re in the lead
But I want you to move me…
I always give you all I’ve got
But I fear you’ll disapprove
Underlined and opened eyes
The heart will follow through
Take you up and bring you back
But you will not be moved
I want you to move me…
