Something More – Twice the Speed of Life

Something More

Monday, hard to wake up
Fill my coffee cup, I’m out the door
Yeah, the freeway’s standing still today
It’s gonna make me late, and thats for sure
I’m running out of gas and out of time
Never gonna make it there by nine

There’s gotta be something more
Gotta be more than this
I need a little less hard time
I need a little more bliss
I’m gonna take my chances
Taking a chance I might
Find what I’m looking for
There’s gotta be something more

Five years and there’s no doubt
That I’m burnt out, I’ve had enough
So now boss man, here’s my two weeks
I’ll make it short and sweet, so listen up
I could work my life away, but why?
I got things to do before die

Some believe in destiny, and some believe in fate
I believe that happiness is something we create
You best believe that I’m not gonna wait
‘Cause there’s gotta be something more

I get home 7:30 the house is dirty, but it can wait
Yeah, ’cause right now I need some downtime
To drink some red wine and celebrate
Armageddon could be knocking at my door
But I ain’t gonna answer that’s for sure
There’s gotta be something!

I have played this song so often that my ipod now throws it into whatever random mix I’m listening to. It gets me pumped! It keeps me motivated; believing for something more, something better.

There are so many people in my life who have spent their entire working lives doing something that supports their families, pays the bills, looks great on a resume….but does nothing to fuel their soul and allow their passion to burn. As I stand at this very spot in my life I realize the dilemma and internal conflict that not living out your dreams can cause. Do you stick with the job that you’re good at and allows you a reasonable means for living? Or do you step out in faith and pursue the career that will make you jump out of bed everyday? I don’t have an answer to this as both options have their benefits. But as someone who is continually searching for fulfillment and happiness, I know which choice I’m leaning towards. So now how do I get there?

Dedicated to my Dad who now spends his time living out ONE of his dreams!!
