Liner Notes: 

I work for Jared and the phrase "dare to be devoted" is their new slogan. Something I was thinking about doing but finally worked on today.

Lyrics: 

(c) 2019 - Deanna Sweidel

Dare To Be

Live life on your terms
Others can’t decide
How you want to be
How your life will thrive

Love with all your heart
Others cannot say
How your heart should feel
How your love displays

Dare to live life freely
Dare to be misquoted
Dare to dream big daily
Dare to be devoted

Laugh with all your might
Others need to hear
How you conquer hate
How you fight the fear

Dare to live life freely
Dare to be misquoted
Dare to dream big daily
Dare to be devoted

Live and laugh and love
Cause a big commotion
Show them who you are
Show them your devotion

Dare to live life freely
Dare to be misquoted
Dare to dream big daily
Dare to be devoted



Please keep your comments respectful, honest, and constructive. Please focus on the song and not the demo.

Love the concept of this. Very stable as it should be with such a message!

This is a really good first draft !! I can semi hear the melody but personally there are lines I would take out - in the spirit of less is more. PM me in FB if you want a small discussion about it.

The dare to be misquoted line is funny. I hope you don't mean the price? Wink

Nice jingle -- but could go rock or any number of styles as well!

I like that you've taken a company slogan, found what is universal in it, and distilled it into an inspiring song like this. Some of the lines are very challenging - 'dare to be misquoted' is something not many would be prepared to do (please don't quote me on that, though)!

Empowering and strong write! Lots of wonderful rhymes. The chorus sums up the message so succinctly. Great song!

Nice one. Very deep and meaningful, yet universal at the same time. I like the dare to be misquoted line, it shows character and backbone. It scans very well too.

Can I demo this?

Laugh with all your might//Others need to hear//How you conquer hate//How you fight the fear

I feel this is a very powerful verse.

Such great empowering lyrics here that need something anthemic to go with them!

Basically, live the life you want to lead, not the life that everyone expects you to! That doesn’t mean to ignore people, but to weigh it up and still decide in the end if it fits with who you want to be!

Great lyrics!
