Song Description

Change, not willing to settle for a life that is not what you wanted. Rejecting the status quo and moving ahead on your own path.

Story Behind the Song

Inspired by a good friend who was suffering from work place mental abuse from a demented manager. He stopped by one day when he was about to crack and I suggested he take a stress leave. He did and never went back and ended up moving to Maui.

Lyrics

I Want a New Life
©2011 Bruce Gerrish, SOCAN

Verse 1
I want a new life, gonna quit this fight
I know I've done my best but my best it just ain't quite
Don't wanna play that same old game
I'm getting sic and tired of days like today
Gonna take a chance, wanna little romance
You only live once so you might as well dance

CHORUS
This time around I'm gonna do things right
Starting tonight (yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah)
I wanna new life (that's right), I wanna new life

Verse 2
Wanna set him free, the man inside of me
The one this old world makes it so hard to be
Just wanna sing, gotta do this thing
Live this life see what tomorrow brings

CHORUS
This time around I'm gonna do things right
Starting tonight (yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah)
I wanna new life (that's right)
I wanna new life (that's right), I wanna new life

Bridge
I've tried it your way, now I'm tryin mine
I'm looking up ahead, not lookin back behind
Taking second chances, rollin' the dice
I've gone through the darkest days, now I see the light.

Verse 3
I want something new, it's gotta be cool
Every dog has its day, hey, what about me and you
Gonna take a chance, wanna little romance
You only live once so you might as well dance

CHORUS
This time around I'm gonna do things right
Starting tonight (yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah)
I wanna new life (that's right)
I wanna new life (that's right), I wanna new life
