Growing Pains

Growing up is hard isn't it?

We laugh, we cry, we smile, and we fall in love. Only to watch it pass by, and wonder if it was all worth it.

We try so hard to find ourselves, and sometimes we end up back at the same place wondering if we learned anything at all.

But that's okay. Because that's growing up. We're still learning. We're still chasing our dreams. We're still smiling. We're still loved. Someday, we'll figure it out.

I'm sure of it.

Every time I see you, and talk to you, you always bring back memories of the days when I was running around going wild and full of energy. Thinking I knew better, but realizing I didn't know anything at all. Back when I was trying to figure out who I was, or who I wanted to be.

Not that you're the same. You're probably a lot smarter than me, and you're doing big things already.

Just promise me you won't do anything you'll regret. You only live once, so make it a story worth telling. Make it a dream worth living. Make it a journey worth traveling.

This is for you. It's not much, but it's about all I can do to make something that's uniquely yours.

This song is my story of you. The story I hear every time I see you. The story of me, watching you grow.

So, don't disappoint me.

Show me something amazing.

I can't wait to see what you'll do.

It's just too long without any actual evolution. 2,5 minutes would've been enough

Zodiax responds:

You're right about that. I made it a bit too long in the tooth. I probably got caught up in the moment, and pushed too far forward with the bars.

There's intention to add lyrics though, so there's that.

Thanks for checking it out though, I really appreciate.
