Ready to Run (Demo Oct 2018)

Written for Why Aren't You Famous? Podcast Season Two Episode 4 with a subject matter of change and transition. Featuring quest songwriter Matt Monta. I was rushing on writing this one (the hustle takes a lot of energy and time) and just thought I would write something in the style of a Dixie Chicks song. More details at:



Pack your boxes and suitcase
Check the mirror for a new face
No more knocking on the door
It’s not locked up anymore

Leave some time do a sort through
Careful what you carry with you
All the lightning and the thunder
May make you stop and wonder, are you?

Ready to run, ready to fly
Ready to do or to do or die
Ready to leave the past behind
Are you ready?

It gets easier to learn
What to keep and what to burn
With a secret up your sleeve
Who to love and who to leave

It’s okay to be so scared
Just as long as you prepare
And stop to pray for help
Especially when you ask yourself, are you?

Ready to run, ready to go
Ready to find out what you don’t know
It might be fast or it might be slow
Are you ready?
