about

Song commissioned and inspired by Beth Hain for Kickstarter 2015

lyrics

Why does everyone seem to have more?
The perfect body the perfect hobby
The cutest clothes from the finest stores
Yoga class and cafes with a new age attitude
Yeah, there all after something
Or just something else to do

But sometimes I wonder
Should I stretch myself thinner
Do I appear to be a winner?
Am I good enough?
But then I remember
Life is more than survival
More than a glorified arrival
It’s hear and now

And right now I am grateful
For a good man to hold me
A family that loves me
A home of my own
I can say that I’m thankful
For the job that supports me
Old friends that surround me
And I’m never alone
Life may keep me running till I drop
But baby I love what I got

I’m not saying I don’t have dreams of my own
When you’re buried under, don’t we all wonder
If there’s another life we could have known
What might have been, what could be, what remains to be seen
I”m still allowed to question
It’s still okay to dream

But this morning
I wanna count all my blessings
Feel good in the knowing
That I’m good enough
Someone out there somewhere
Might be looking at me
Thinking how lucky I must be
To have so much love

So right now I am grateful
For a good man to hold me
A family that loves me
For a home of my own
I can say that I’m thankful
For the job that supports me
Old friends that surround me
And I’m never alone
Life may keep me running till I drop
Sometimes I feel I’m running till I drop
But baby I love what I got
