"ON POINT"

EVERYDAY WHEN I WAKE UP ALL I WANT TO DO IS SING

MY VOICE IS NOT THE BEST BUT THE MUSIC HEALS ME

SO I WRITE ANOTHER SONG THAT MOST WILL NOT HEAR

CAUSE PEOPLE DON’T HAVE TIME TO LISTEN TO ME DEAR

 

I UNDERSTAND PEOPLE WANT PERFECTION BUT THAT’S NOT POSSIBLE

YOURE BIGGEST CRITICS WILL NEVER GET IT SO YOU JUST GOT TO LET GO

 

I DREAM ABOUT THE EARTH AS I WATCH THE CLOUDS PASS BY

THINKING TO MYSELF THE QUESTION WHY

WERE HERE IN THE FIRST PLACE AND MY ANSWER TO THIS IS

IF WE DONT DO WHAT WE LOVE WHATS THE POINT OF IT

 

I UNDERSTAND PEOPLE WANT PERFECTION BUT THAT’S NOT POSSIBLE

YOURE BIGGEST CRITICS WILL NEVER GET IT SO YOU JUST GOT TO LET GO

 

I’LL TELL YOU WHY MY BIGGEST FEAR IS NOT DEATH ITSELF

AND IT’S A SILLY THING TO WORRY ABOUT IF ALL YOU WANT IS WEALTH

TRUE HAPPINESS IS ALL THAT MATTERS WHEN YOU THINK ABOUT YOURSELF

DID YOU LIVE YOUR LIFE THE WAY YOU WANTED OR WERE YOU LIVING FOR SOMEONE ELSE

 

I UNDERSTAND PEOPLE WANT PERFECTION BUT THAT’S NOT POSSIBLE

YOURE BIGGEST CRITICS WILL NEVER GET IT SO YOU JUST GOT TO LET GO
