about

This song was written about some of the advice my parents gave me when I was growing up :)

lyrics

My Mama never told me what to spend my life on
But she used to say that you've gotta stay strong in the world
Cause it's just crazy

You gotta know who you are when you step outside
And if you walk in a room, hold your head high
Cause you know who you are

And there's people that'll give you a hard time
And there's people that'll give you a good time
And there's drive you crazy
And there's people that'll leave you in the gutter
And some will forget to love ya
But you can't afford to change

And I wanna know just where I should go
Just where I should go
And I wanna know whose hand I should hold
So I'm not alone
On this crazy, crazy road

My mama used to tell me that there's people out there
Who will hate me just because they can
And I said I didn't care

But I did a bit of growing
And I lived my life
Learned enough to know that the world outside
Is a whole lot bigger then me

And there's people that'll give me a hard time
And there's people that'll give me a good time
And there's people that'll drive me crazy
And there's people who will leave me in the gutter
And some will forget to love me
But I can't afford to change

And I wanna know just where I should go
Just where I should go
And I wanna know whose hand I should hold
So I'm not alone
On this crazy, crazy road
