I’ve been experimenting with stream-of-consciousness writing, but trying to use some type of structure at times as I write. With this piece I had my FunkBox app on and followed the beat and this starting coming to me, and I went with it. I’m not over analyzing it at all, I am just accepting it as it is right now. My soul needs to write, so I have learned to appreciate whatever comes out.
Lyrics: Someone needs to write them.

When I wrote this song, the message felt strong. I just wonder who had to write this type of letter to someone they loved because they had to let go so they could find themselves. Good luck to everyone trying to “make it.” Whether you are outside of America or in New York, Los Angeles, Austin, Kansas City, St. Louis, New Orleans or the beautiful Nash Vegas…keep pressing on. Let the whole world know you exist. Your music will speak to someone.

LOL.

Have you ever experienced being close friends with someone that wants to be more than a friend, but you just don’t see the potential for something more or you are afraid of ruining the friendship? Even though they are always there for you, you still keep going back or staying with someone else who doesn’t deserve you. Well, I wrote about it. If I could go back to high school and make different decisions. If I only knew then what I know now, things would be so much different. Or would they?

I have been writing this song for years. I was so focused on the topic of truck driving that I was missing the main focus of the song. “A woman’s story.” Finally recently, a voice came into my head and said, “focus on her story, tell her story, that is what the song is about.” And so I did. Less about focusing on the technical jargon regarding truck driving, and more about the dream a woman has, that she plans on making come true.
