Story

Original song, written in 2007, which makes it one of my older songs.  Over the years has been performed mainly with my band, Manuka Hunnies. It's a very simple, two chord tune. Here's the 2018 version.

In a world of "Busy Backsoons" (Tao of Pooh - Benjamin Hoff reference) and the mechanical seemingly nudging out human interactions, I still believe in our humanity, in our freedom and frailty. I believe in living that truth, even when it ain't easy, cause at least it's real.

Lyrics

My Truth

I speak my truth
Not because I want to
But because I have to
That’s what I do, I do
That’s what I do, I do
How’s about you? And you, and you…
How’s about you?

Hey, I’m not here for just breathing
Not here just to earn a buck, no, no
Not here for just playing games
Or, hoping for a little luck
I’m gonna be me, be me, be me
In this world don’t want to be stuck
I’m gonna free me, yeah, yeah yeah
Yeah, I’m gonna be me
That’s gonna free me

Well, I’m looking for salvation
But not looking to be saved, no, no
Salvation comes from inside
Ain’t gonna find it at that grave
No, ain’t gonna find it at the grave
Not me, no

I speak my truth
Not because I want to
But because I have to
That’s what I do, I do
That’s what I do, I do
How’s about you? And you, and you…
How’s about you?
