Podcast #46 – Look Up

It is really easy to focus on all the reasons you can’t do something. You have the fear of failure on the one hand and the fear of success on the other. I know fear of success sounds kind of silly but, it’s there. With success comes change and the raising of expectations and going way, way, way beyond your comfort zone. For someone like me, who is apt to set up my own tiny little fortress of solitude wherever I land, it’s threatening to leave the safety zone. I tend to stay a little too long in one place and wait until it becomes unbearable before I break and run for the next plateau. So, count this as one of my ‘cheer yourself up, self encouragement’ songs. I’m actually in a good place right now. This song was written for week #46 and its week #48 now. 🙂

Now that the 52 week podcast (a full year of songs!) is almost up, I’m looking forward to doing an hour long online performance via Concert Window on NOVEMBER 12TH for you! The first 5 people who sign up get to choose a song from one of my solo albums or this podcast for me to sing (except for: Hard Rain or Suedehead). And, you can pay what you want for access so, yay! The first 20 people who sign up (including the first 5) will get a signed and personalized postcard from yours truly to anywhere in the world. That’s right! I’m paying for postage 🙂

Look Up 
Under the covers, your favorite place to hide
Safer than facing the world that lurks outside
Losing the waiting game
Nothing ventured and stay the same

Bright is the light that you’re doubting with the curtains drawn
How many tears are you counting while the sun burns on
every chance you could take
to welcome the light of the day

Look up, I know it’s hard to face it
Look up, I hear what you’re saying
But turn your worried head around
Look up
Down and out but bound to rise above

You want it so bad you can taste it, well, go on and cry
None of your tears will be wasted if you want to try
The only ground you can lose
Is on a path that you never choose

Look up, I know it’s hard to face it
Look up, I hear what you’re saying
But turn your worried head around
Look up
Down and out but bound to rise above

The first day of the rest
Best days of your life
Going after it all
after all this time
And even if it goes wrong
Everything is alright
everything that you are
goes on and on and on

Look up, I know it’s hard to face it
Look up, I hear what you’re saying
But turn your worried head around
Look up
Down and out but bound to rise above

Look up, there’s a light up above you
Look up, look up look up
Look up, there’s a light up above you
