Keep it UP // SWS

Yet time still moves on
And life is long

I honestly didn’t expext sharing this song in such a way as this. This song was supposed to be a draft demo, and is most likely going to be on my upcoming album/EP (as a re-take). Nonetheless, I’ve decided to just release this song. Because I honestly love this song.

Mostly because it’s partially convicting when I sing this/hear this song.

Look at it as a teaser that is perfectly timed with the season we’re in right now. Still, the song will remain true in the future! Let me tell you a little about this song.

The song talks about the road of life changing decisions. Not just the decisions we make, but also the decisions we face en have to live through. Life also makes decisions for us. Personally I find this pretty difficult, and I’ve started to see this thing we call life as one big adventure. Unforseen circumstances are the cornerstones that make life worth living, and the trick is to let go of these situations. To live through them! This song is so positive. It is filled with so much love from God. Although it isn’t strictly Christian in nature, it is filled with Jesus’ DNA all over.

Tomorrow is a new day to wonder. To ask, saying sorry.

Look at the birds of the air

Matthew 6

lyrics

VERSE 1
I remember when I was young
Playing soldier in the fields
Fighting against my enemies
while no one got hurt

What complicates my life so much
That I want to go back
to weilding my dull wooden blade
running through the dirt

INT.
Yet time still moves on
And life is long

VERSE 2
I wish I knew what it was for
sacrificing what I have
could I not linger on to what is still
still in my hands

INT.
Yet time still moves on
And life is long

CH.
Keep it up, keep it up up up up up up up up up up
Keep it up, keep it up up up up up up up up up up
Tomorrow is a new day
to wonder
to ask, saying sorry
Keep it up, keep it up up up up up up up up up up

VERSE 3
Strength is not all that I will have
anyway, not on my own
don’t rely on what others might think you might need
Cuz maybe you don’t

INT.
Yet time still moves on
And life is long
