here i go
mixedtapes Released Jul 27, 2013

i wrote a little song for the "grass is greener" collab.  this one is personal to me.  i might have cried a little while writing it.  it's very bare.  recorded on my phone, using voice memo as always.  i found inspiration in a beautiful text record by musing5225 called "The Journey".  please find it in the resources.  it is full of such gentle wisdom.

lyrics:

open up your eyes
take a deep breath
it takes strength to speak your truth
there’s a quiet voice below the noise

open up your eyes
take a deep breath
it takes courage to face your fears
here i go, here i go

“i hate when you do this to me”

so follow me through the trees
hear my call
let the world say what it will
and watch me fall
where the grass is green
where the grass is brown
it doesn't matter anyhow
when you are where
you can be who you are 

open up your eyes
take a deep breath
all the feelings you push away
are calling out for freedom

open up your eyes
take your first step
there are no guarantees
here i go, here i go

“i hate when you do this to me”

so follow me through the trees
hear my call
let the world say what it will
and watch me fall
where the grass is green
where the grass is brown
it doesn't matter anyhow
when you are where
you can be who you are

so the grass is green
so the grass is brown
it doesn’t matter anyhow
when you are where
you can be who you are
