I uncovered this song from my countless song files and thought it was too HPZ not to put it out. I wrote this song back in April 2019 when I had been living in Olympia for about 6 months. This song really reflects where I was mentally after leaving everything I was familiar with in the midwest, thrust into a totally new landscape, physically and emotionally. It's wild to see how far I have come even since the recording of this song, but I thought it was very fitting for HPZ and that some of you may relate to it. We are living during a time of great change and we are all being urged to fall in love with life again. Enjoy!


I'm dreaming again though I still can't remember them
Been talking myself down, been picking myself up
If I open up my heart and if I open up my eyes,
I'm both afraid and so excited for what I might find
My home is a studio, the perfect size
on the west coast, 2500 miles away
From everything I've ever known,
To say the least it's taking me time to find my way, my grind

And I wanna get back on track
and I want to believe in myself again
if a bringer of change is what I seek,
then I'll turn to myself and I'll love what I see
I need to be the person I know, I'm capable of being

Doubt myself til I cry, apologize for what I like
Mistake after mistake, impulsive or complacent
I'm harder on myself than anyone else
And I'm trying to shake that curse, that mindset is absurd
I expect perfection but I see my flaws,
No expectations for anyone but myself
I'm done trying to fit inside this box
I've gotta trust my gut, gut, gut

And I wanna drive real fast
and I wanna sing until my voice cracks
if a bringer of change is what I seek,
then i'll be my own symbol of peace
I need to be myself, because I know thats what I do best
