Liner Notes: 

I wrote this for a song challenge on another site. It was inspired by sea glass and river rocks. Thanks for checking it out Smile

Lyrics: 

Better Under Pressure

V1

Sometimes I feel just like
A rock in a river bed
Worn down by some
Never-ending current

It crushes me relentlessly
Chips my mind apart
Smiling all the while
As if it weren't

Chorus

But I let it all wash over me
Because I'm better under pressure
I'm better under pressure
Let it force me down, but I won't drown
Yeah, I'm better under pressure
I'm better under pressure
Usually

V2

Sometimes I feel just like
Glass shards in the great blue sea
Cast adrift with no
Sense of direction

Too low to see the sunlight
Far too worn down to care
That I don't recognize
My own reflection

Chorus

But I let it all wash over me
Because I'm better under pressure
I'm better under pressure
Let it force me down, but I won't drown
Yeah, I'm better under pressure
I'm better under pressure
Usually

Bridge

When the currents have all died
And the river beds have dried
I'll find that I've turned into something new

No, there won't be any cracks
After the ocean recedes back
I'll find that my sharp edges have worn smooth

Final Chorus

So I let it all wash over me
And I revel under pressure
'Cause I'm better under pressure
Let it force me down, but I won't drown
Yeah, I'm better under pressure
I'm better under pressure
Usually

Funny how we both used sea glass for the other challenge, but in very different ways. I love this so much. It has a strong sense of inner strength and self belief. That ideal to never give in or give up. Your bridge is the icing on the cake. A really strong write all around!
