New Music | "First Try"
2022 | New Song No. 4
With traveling over (for now), I figured it’s about time to jump back on the 1 new song/week train.
When I first started to write this song last year, I thought it was going to be a love song. It turned into more than that though.
It’s become a song about feeling stuck. It’s so easy to not know what to do next, whether you’re stuck in a position or a relationship that you’re unfulfilled or unhappy in, or your in a waiting period in your life. The most beautiful thing is that we get to make a *choice* as to what we do next.
Sometimes we make a choice that leads us to exactly where we need to be right away. Other times (most of the times) it takes a couple of tries to get it right.
If you feel like this, please know you’re not alone. I’m praying for you.
Sending love always,
She’ll make it around the corner so soon
She’s thinking about why she does what she’s doing
All eyes on her now, she’s the talk of the town
Got what she wanted, but the tables are turning now
One foot forward, one behind
He’ll wake up alone in a pool of his sweat
Just reliving the day, worst mistake that he made, when he left
And he’ll wonder if she thinks about him when he goes to sleep at night
Got what he wanted, but he’s starting to change his mind
One step forward, two behind
A lot can change in a little time
So don’t beat yourself up if you don’t get it right the first time
You were made for more than this life
Just keep trying and praying and fighting, you’ll be alright
