Liner Notes: 

Sad to say this was my line of thinking at 19/20! LoL!

It's been very interesting bringing our kids through this stage with probing questions, suggestions the proverbial "... and after that?...." We've said you always need a plan/map between "here and there" I told my daughter when I was 20, what I thought was a plan was really swiss cheese. Don't plan your life on a piece of "swiss".

While parenting can be a challenge and nerve wracking at times, for me, there is no greater calling.

Stepping off the soap box now.

Lyrics: 

Too Much Talent

Let’s drive out to the horizon,
Stand there at the edge
I’m on my knee knowingly
Here to make a pledge
Only you, and you alone
For me along this road
There’s nothing now
Or will ever be
That can keep our talent down
Have a car,
get some cash and gas
Nothing can stop us now.

Yeah, maybe we could get some cash
And steal away from here
What we’ve got should fit in the trunk
Head out west this year

You could finally write that book
I could pump some gas
Get some head shots find an agent
Take a an acting class

Let’s drive out to the horizon,
Stand there at the edge
I’m on my knee knowingly
Here to make a pledge
Only you, and you alone
For me along this road
There’s nothing now
Or will ever be
That can keep our talent down
Have a car, get some cash and gas
Nothing can stop us now.

You so killed the high school play
And I jumped your father’s car
Too much talent to be held down
In LA we’ll go so far

We might be on TMZ
Once we settle in
Casting calls, You’ll smoke them all
No way that we can’t win

Let’s drive out to the horizon,
Stand there at the edge
I’m on my knee knowingly
Here to make a pledge
Only you, and you alone
For me along this road
There’s nothing now
Or will ever be
That can keep our talent down
Have a car, get some cash and gas
Nothing can stop us now.

Yeah, maybe we could get some cash
And steal away from here
What we’ve got should fit in the trunk
Head out west this year

That urge to physically put into action the dream of creative success leading to "hollywood" (read "hell in a handbasket") is perfectly expressed here. The ambition and the innocence (school play)! Well done.
Thanks for your kind words earlier! Smile

Nice lyrics….We control so much the trajectory of our lives in our teens and twenties….when our brains aren’t fully developed yet!!! Good thing that we never stop learning.
