This one is so soppy I almost didn't post it.. I wrote this some weeks ago for my 10 year old, Reuben, who I call champion as he gives everything 100% and is such a great kid.. We had a bit of a wobble over the last few weeks as he was sitting some very difficult exams for grammar school entrance (selective secondary school but non fee paying so highly sought after) and there were some tears and panic about not feeling ready and possibly failing... It's quite a lot of pressure for such a young age. life eh?
On a recording note.. can anymore more experienced tell me how I can stop the popping that happens when I sing words like 'palpable'?! I have a pop shield but it hasn't done much! Thank you muchly!!
Mountain of work on your desk, still a child no less
The growing pains are palpable, this juncture inescapable
Pressure like you’ve never known before
Fear and worry mounting at your door
This ride is so emotional, teardrops are inevitable
Whatever happens, whatever happens, you’re my champion (x2)
Failure is a hard thing to accept,
Faith is a difficult concept to understand
But trust me, if things don’t go to plan, it won’t be the end
I’ve watched you fall down and get up many times, it’s not that different this time (x2)
