Story

Life can be hard! It's a jungle out there! I wrote this song as a dedication to all of us who are often very hard on ourselves, and we're always worried and thinking, "Man - I should be doing more! - Achieving more!!!!!" - I guess it's trying to make the point that usually, if you take step back, you find that you're actually doing pretty well with it all, and maybe what we've all got going on right here and now already, ain't so bad. : ) The success is in the journey not the destination, right?

Lyrics

Front Door

 

Morning has broken she pulls the shades open and watches the people below

She pours her coffee and heads to the office and wonders, "Where'd the time go?"

She thinks back to when she was just a girl

and all of the big dreams she had for this world

 

And she'll wait, and she'll pray

For something much better to come along her way

But just maybe there's always been so much more, 

Than she ever gave herself credit for

Right at her Front Door

 

Angel's a baker who works down on Bleecker he wakes up each morning at three

he knows all the customers it may not be much but, he gives them their refills for free

and back home he kisses his family goodnight

and wishes there was so much more he could provide

 

and he'll wait, and he'll pray

For something much better to come along his way

But just maybe there's always been so much more, 

Than he ever gave himself credit for

Right at his Front Door

 

All of us spinning 'round in this mysterious ferris wheel

grasping for pieces

Trying to hold tighter the wheel's spinnin' faster so hard to feel

like you're gaining ground, gaining ground....

 

So you'll wait, and you'll pray

For something much better to come along your way

but just maybe there's always been so much more

than you ever gave yourself credit for

Right at your Front Door
