One day I'm going to buy a bottle of whiskey and tie a note around it's neck. The note will say 'be mine'

Let's complicate things

Let's complicate things

Let's go get what we really want

Even if it messes things up


Let's get out of here

Let's run away

Doesn't matter where


This need to be needed is too strong

This craze to be crazy

To stand out

To blend in

To be better than who you are


No one can just let it be

Let it breathe


Be kind to yourself first

Stop torturing yourself with comparisons and compromises


Live your best life

Tell your best lie

Be honest with no one but yourself


You'd think I'd say it doesn't matter in the end

But it does

To me it does


Don't take away anything from here

Let the sun rise

Let the birds chirp

Let the darkness fade

But find a way to get what you want

Find a way to figure out what you want

Without getting held up on how long it took you to get here

Or how much further you still have to go


If you have even the faintest idea of what you want your life to be like

Go complicate things

Go shake things up

Until every naysayer falls off that tree

And you get to bite into that sweet sweet fruit

No, it didn't just fall into your lap

But it stayed there and you got it

And you did that for you.

Yes, that would be it, wouldn't it?

That would be the dream.

This indeed is complicated but I certainly like the way it speaks directly to complexities of life. Well crafted.
