written in nashville early 2012 and this is an early demo recording
produced in my bedroom at the house in donelson


well life
can only hurt so much
and you and i
can only take so many drugs
but tonight, i've had enough

and love
can be pretty tough
and you and i
we really fucked it up
but tonight, i'm waking up

i'm going to start
becoming a man

and i'm going to
do the best i can

i'm going to stand up
when i've got to
and sit down
when i must

be careful not to hurt
the ones i love

and as much as i
would like to
lock myself away

i can't let the darkness
take my life

and no matter how i try
and you know how hard i try
i will never ever be
bruce springsteen...

but if i can hold my head up straight
i could be
