The Resolution

about

The epitome of self-realization is what birthed this song. We all make promises to ourselves, to change this or improve that, but after weathering a storm and finally hitting bottom, I resolved my self to all that makes up, "The Resolution"

lyrics

BEEN SO BUSY WITH THE TAKE

THAT I'VE FORGOTTEN HOW TO GIVE

WHEN MY DEFENSES LEAD THE WAY
THEY WAGE A WAR I CAN'T FORGIVE
I BUILT AN ARMY OUT OF SHAME
WHEN I WAS JUST A LITTLE KID

AND NOW I'M ASKIN' IS THIS HOW I WANNA LIVE?

BUT I SWEAR TODAY

WILL BE THE LAST

DAY THAT I LIVE

MY PRESENT IN THE PAST

I'LL MAKE FRIENDS WITH CHANGE

MAYBE SHE'LL HELP

ME TO MAKE FRIENDS WITH MYSELF

I SPENT A LOT OF TIME WITH HATE 

SHE NEARLY BROKE MY BACK

I BUCKLED UNDERNEATH HER WEIGHT

BUT SHE HELD ON LIKE A CHAMP

WHEN I TRIED TO SHAKE HER LOOSE

SHE CALLED HER OLD PAL, FEAR

AND TOGETHER WE MARCHED ON ANOTHER YEAR

BUT I SWEAR TODAY

WILL BE THE LAST

DAY THAT I LIVE

MY PRESENT IN THE PAST

I'LL MAKE FRIENDS WITH CHANGE

MAYBE SHE'LL HELP

ME TO MAKE FRIENDS WITH MYSELF

LONGING TO FEEL

THE FREEDOM THAT WARMS ME LIKE THE SUN

GENTLE VOICE AND OPEN ARMS

TO HOLD ME, YA, TO HOLD ME –

IT'S TIME TO OPEN UP THE SHADES

LOOK IN THE MIRROR AND DECIDE

IF THE WAY I HAVE BEHAVED 

IS ENOUGH TO SATISFY

LIKE A BABY BIRD, WHO SPREADS HER WINGS TO FLY

I MIGHT FALL DOWN BUT I'LL NEVER STOP TRYIN'

BUT I SWEAR TODAY

WILL BE THE LAST

DAY THAT I LIVE

MY PRESENT IN THE PAST

I'LL MAKE FRIENDS WITH CHANGE

MAYBE SHE'LL HELP

ME TO MAKE FRIENDS WITH MYSELF

BUT I SWEAR TODAY

WILL BE THE LAST

DAY THAT I LIVE

MY PRESENT IN THE PAST

I'LL MAKE FRIENDS WITH CHANGE

MAYBE SHE'LL HELP

ME TO MAKE FRIENDS WITH MYSELF
