"Uphill", Single. 2014.
Indie / Progressive / Riff Rock.


In my life things aren't pretty
When I'm going uphill
I keep trying to run a little faster
But I'm going nowhere still
...we all keep running uphill

In my life things aren't easy
When I'm swimming upstream
I get snagged by the first line
That falls in front of me
...throw me back in the stream

In my life things move slower
When I can't see a plan
I just need to breathe and not worry
All my friends will understand
...I'm doing the best that I can

My life's been good to me
But I can't help but think about
All the things that got away
I think it's time I move on
And forget about days
When things were looking really gray

Like the day when I was all alone
Like the day when I was alone

I don't know what it is
I don't know what's happening
right now
But it needs to happen right now

I don't know what it is
But it needs to go uphill right now
Right now
