about

This song was written in response to me dropping out of highschool due to some pretty intense situations that happened to my family and I during the middle of senior year. It was also a period where i started to realize what really mattered in my life and what I had acheived in my personal life outside of school, friends, sports or any of that. I set certain goals my freshmen year of high school and by the time I had quit I had accomplished most of those but to the world noone really cares and I'm over that. This was also written in response to the changes people go through going through highschool. We all did and do and will forever but what matters is finding yourself and what your passion is over what people make you believe you should love. People are often misguided. i myself went through a period of it. But its rare that you come out of it with a sense of direction towards something that your heart is completely set on.

lyrics

What's the difference between you and I
When we were kids I think we had a different set of eyes
Is it offensive that I have a thing to say
About how we moved on since our youthful days
I just thought Id let you know that it truly goes to show
That you dont care about anything else
Besides the clothes that you wear and the lies that you sell

Every day gets harder when youre waking up alone
And life gets longer when youre growing up alone

With this reputation that you made for me
Comes a path that isnt my feet
I exemplify myself from those my age
Because theres more to life than GPAs and minimum wage Follow a passion, make a sacrifice but youll sip on that bottle as a climax to your friday night, its all for friday night, but friday night ends eventually

Every day gets harder when youre waking up alone
And the nights get colder when Youre unknown
And every day gets lonely when the sun never shows
And life gets longer when youre growing up alone

Thought id let you know that theres more to life
Than forming a crutch out of your vice

Every morning its a challenge rolling out of bed
Every day its a struggle between body and head
Every moment theres a chance to start again
So lets make the most of this
