So I did it! I made a video within the first month of the new year AND as a bonus, I wrote a new song. NY resolution = on point.
If you've ever been to a show or had a conversation with me about songwriting, you know that I simply write what I know. I write from my heart, I write from my happiness, I write from my fears... I write from my fears a lot.
This is called "Searching For You Again" because I feel like I'm always searching for one thing in particular, especially as I get older. A relationship that I feel has eluded me because to be honest, I haven't put the time in or done my part yet. Relationships are two way streets no matter what; you have to be actively involved to make them work.
I'm still searching. Always. This is my new song, lyrics below. It's a work in progress... ha, kind of like I am...
Searching For You Again
I don’t have a single thing figured out
Thought I’d have a better plan than I do now
I’m still struggling to find my way to higher ground
Here I am, searching for you again.
Friends I love, and people that I’ve barely met
Ask me how I am and how we came to this
They say I’ve been distant, but they don’t get
That’s just me, searching for you again
I’ve been runnin’ headfirst into the dark
Welcomed sorrow like an old friend I’d forgot
And I’ve been prayin’ to feel your warmth again in my heart
