You Could Do Anything (50/90 Challenge)


My dad always told me to be an author
He said I'd get so rich I could buy him a yacht
But is it really easier to pen a bestseller
Than make a living wage if I give this everything I've got?
My mom was more patient, she'd just say...

You could do so many things
You could do anything
What do you want to do?

I've always had a knack for numbers so if it's just money
I would have been an engineer or a CPA
But it's hard to find the space inside my mind for those numbers
When I'm writing a song in my head every minute of the day

Everybody's always getting at some different way that I should be
But I'm not here to please anyone, I'm only here for me
And the more this life disappoints, the more certainty that I seem to find
That this is what heart wants most, by a catastrophic landslide

You could do so many things
You could do anything
And this is such a simple thing
Might never lead to anything
But it's all I ever wanted to do

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

This was really pleasant to listen to! I like the structure and the lyric change at the final chorus.
