This started out with me wanting to write a more laid-back, folky song. That classic constant snare strategy was something I wanted to do for sure.

From a lyrical standpoint, I got to writing and thinking about how in my life at least, the focus is always on what's next. I'm so driven by ambition that I think I take for granted what I have in my life already: the successes I've achieved, the friends and family I have, the happiness even. I wanted to remind myself to slow down sometimes and look around. Life is pretty great! So be happy about how things are now, even if you're pushing yourself to greater heights.

LYRICS
---
Onwards and up, every time I look at my life
Gotta keep moving just to feel alive
It's hard to take in all I've got
Hard to take in all that I've got
Over and out, too busy for friends
Distracted by the little things again and again
It's hard to take in all I've got
Hard to take in all that I've got

The sun is coming up now, its heat a sacred cow
I wait for it to move first
And while I'm waiting outside, I look it in the eye
Ask for what guidance it births

Eternal lifebringer, can you tell me how
To satisfy a dreamer who's never satisfied?

Ambition isn't a friend, he takes over my hands
But he's a partner I'll never leave
'Cause I want to rise up high, but still be satisfied
Whether or not I succeed
I just want to mean a lot to me

'Cause onwards and up, every time I look at my life
Gotta keep on moving just to feel alive
It's hard to take in all I've got
Hard to take in all that I've got
Over and out, too busy for friends
Distracted by the little things again and again
It's hard to take in all I've got
Hard to take in all that I've got

Onwards and up, every time I look at my life
Gotta keep on moving just to feel alive
It's hard to take in all I've got
Hard to take in all that I've got
Over and out, too busy for friends
Distracted by the little things again and again
It's hard to take in all I've got
Hard to take in all that I've got
It's hard to take in all I've got
Hard to take in all that I've got
