Hang On To Your Dreams

I wrote this song in 2008. At the time I was working on my first EP and the lyrics were exactly what I needed to hear. Still one of my favourite songs to perform.

Lyrics

Hold on to your dreams little girl. Hang on to your dreams little boy

No matter what they say, joy is absolutely endless

People just don’t know, there’s enough to go around for everyone

So hold on to your dreams little girl. Hang on to your dreams little boy

Chorus:

They keep us out ’cause they don’t know

And we stay out ’cause they say so

Oh don’t you know.

It shouldn’t be a secret

If you believe then you can have it

Hold on to your dreams

Hold on to your dreams sister girl. Hang on to your dreams brother man

You were never broke. Inside you there’s a priceless treasure.

Fear is not a foe. Just a friend who knows what you desire.

Hold on to your dreams sister girl. Hang on to your dreams brother man

Chorus:

They keep us out ’cause they don’t know

And we stay out ’cause they say so

Oh don’t you know.

It shouldn’t be a secret

If you believe then you can have it

Hold on to your dreams

Almost Done

At the end of October, I will be done with the new album. It has been almost 2 and a half years in the making. WHAT?! And I think I will be so happy when the whole album is don When we started working on the album, I thought it would be a few months max. It truly has been exhausting to have taken so long to finish a body of work. It has just left me feeling ‘incomplete’.

Every time I feel so bleh, I try to look back at my journey and congratulate myself. In 2008 I worked on my first EP and wrote Teacup. I was taking piano lessons at the time and it was the first song I had ever written. Listen to the lyrics, I wasn’t lying.

I truly am just a ‘Teacup girl’
