From the recording Wellington Demo Session (2018/2019)
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.
I speak my truthNot because I want toBut because I have toThat’s what I do, I doThat’s what I do, I doHow’s about you? And you, and you…How’s about you?Hey, I’m not here for just breathingNot here just to earn a buck, no, noNot here for just playing gamesOr, hoping for a little luckI’m gonna be me, be me, be meIn this world don’t want to be stuckI’m gonna free me, yeah, yeah yeahYeah, I’m gonna be meThat’s gonna free meWell, I’m looking for salvationBut not looking to be saved, no, noSalvation comes from insideAin’t gonna find it at that graveNo, ain’t gonna find it at the graveNot me, noI speak my truthNot because I want toBut because I have toThat’s what I do, I doThat’s what I do, I doHow’s about you? And you, and you…How’s about you?
