Now (New Song lyrics)

With the Dry Bar gig fast approaching on Sunday, I wanted to complete one more new song so there was nothing older than a couple of months on the set list... (aside from cover songs)  I've been jamming with this  for a few weeks now, but decided to give it a final push and finish it off for Sunday.

So this song is called "Now".

I think this year, I have found more faith in myself and realised more so than ever; the importance of being brave, trusting in yourself, exercising self discipline every day and more so than anything; don't over-complicate what is simple.

I saw this picture the other day which explains my last point really well:


I am ready
I have packed my case
What am I taking?
I will travel light
Like the wind
Feel the barriers breaking

They were all
Self inflicted
You don't need them in your life
Didn't realise they were there
Now, how many
Can I find?


I am through
With counting flaws
I only seek solutions
Any extremeties
Lookin' for remedies
With a faith transfusion

I am through
With feeling less
Than everything that I am
I am ready
I am rolling
I am here
I am.

Dry Bar Gig - Now Sun 30th Sept

Just a quick note to say that the Dry Bar gig has now been rescheduled to Sunday 30th September!

Sorry about the change in date - it was beyond my control...

I should also say that today is exactly 4 years since I moved to Athlone - one of the best things I ever did thanks to the people I met there!

Back to music...  I'm being very productive these days, doing the day job all day and then coming home at night and rehearsing / writing all night...

Good times.
