This track was intended to be part of a compilation recorded in 2012, but I'm releasing it as a single. It's too fun NOT to!


Pour this tired body into bed
Soft and heavy like lead
I feel lucky to have a place to rest my head, sleep five hours and wake up feelin' dead.
'Cause I run as fast as I can,
Sprinting hard in a thirsty land.
I have many faults, but one of them is not stopping short of giving all I've got.

Go, go, go, 'cause you've got to know who you are.
So, so, so, so what if they say that you're crazy and you won't go far?
You've got to follow your star.

A dream is a slippery thing,
Just as fast as lightening.
Lace up them sneakers, leave your regrets at the door, 'cause you won't need them anymore.
