Song Description

All of us have our own individual path we need to pursue in this life. We can't let anyone tell us how to live.

Story Behind the Song

I wrote this song after watching my husband work too many long days and nights at a job that he wasn't passionate about.

Lyrics

That Can't Be You
Verse 1
I see your Daddy sittin' there, he's lived an honest life
He worked a job he hated for his children and his wife
But, behind his eyes I see the spark of passion fade away
Cause he lived the life others thought he should and never seized the day
And the weeks turned into months and years and he watched life pass him by
All the woulda, coulda, shoulda beens, starin' him in the eye
And tomorrow holds such little hope for such a tired man
Cause he never spread his wings to fly
The way God knows he can

Chorus
That can't be you
Well that won't be me
I'm gonna live my life true to my heart
and do it passionately
I can't live another's lie
I've only got one shot, ready or not
I'll live my life
Cause it's mine (mine, mine, mine, all mine)

Verse 2
I see you leave for work each mornin' well before the dawn
You work all day, it gives nothin' back and leave when daylight's gone
Well, there has to be much more to life than a paycheck already spent
You got hopes and dreams, so many things, for only you were meant
But the weeks turn into months and years and you watch life pass you by
with all the woulda, coulda, shoulda beens, starin' you in the eye
And tomorrow holds such little hope, for such a tired man
Cause you never spread your wings to fly
The way I know you can

Chorus

Bridge
Well, it can be a scary thing to leave your comfort zone
But if you never try you'll miss
The life you've never known
