November 20, 2023 (The Life of an Artist Lyrics)

A new single dropped today called The Life of an Artist. You can listen to it on Spotify here.


I made this song with my friend, Alex Rivers, who played violin on the song. This song is for artists and people who want to be better than they were. Follow your dreams and never give up. You are unique to this world, and so is your art. Go change people's lives and your own, you can make it.


Lyrics:


I wish that I had courage

I wish that I had fight

You wish that you had people who loved you in your life

I wish my brain was normal

As an artist I am stuck

Between the line of poverty

And being poor as fuck


But I will use my words as tools

To help people who think like me

I will use my brain and tongue to try to do this music thing

And I will make a song and show you all that I am not useless

I am more than I was

I am more than I was


I can be much better than I was

And the life of an artist is a truly brutal one

But I have these stupid songs I have to sing

And I'm making the choice to not fuck up everything


And my father's words they always stuck with me

Be who you want to be and sing what you want to sing

Be who you want to be and sing what you want to sing

Be who you want to be and sing what you want to sing


I can be much better than I was

And the life of an artist is a truly special one

But I have these stupid songs I have to sing

And I'm making the choice to not fuck up everything


And my father's words they always stuck with me

Be who you want to be and sing what you want to sing

Be who you want to be and sing what you want to sing

Be who you want to be and sing what you want to sing
