Song Description

Verse one describes a remorseful look back at one's life, seeing the "countless wasted days. The chorus is a realization that "It's About time" to take a risk, a leap of faith, anything in order to realize the dreams and goals that is rightfully theirs. Verse 2 is a realization that future dreams and goals are waiting "like a sunrise out across a distant ridge" and it's time to put aside the regrets of a wasted past "like water underneath a burning bridge." The verse also describes the risks that would be gladly taken to achieve said dreams and goals, walking on a wire or jumping across a firey lake. The bridge is a frantic realization that this race must be ran in order to achieve desired goals, and that one must jump at fleeting chances and opertunities before their gone. The last chorus reiterates the fact that the risks must be taken or one might die before they're able to realize their dreams and feal truely alive and awake: to put aside a wasted past, and breathe each breath like it's the last one.

Story Behind the Song

I wrote this at a time when I was feeling like I hadn't achieved my full potential. I was 28, and already felt too old for the music business as an artist. I felt as if I had wasted years of my life with frivolous things and had not truly focused on my career. I felt that it was now truely time to forget about all of that and push forward, no matter what the cost and finally realize my dreams.

Lyrics

1. I sit and think about the time,
and all the countless wasted days.
Without a reason or a rhyme,
I've gone and pissed them all away.
Now I regret the time I lost,
and all the wondering what whent wrong.
I count the hours but not the cost,
and my eyes have not been open for so long.

Chorus
It's about time to take the leap and plunge into the water deep.
I know the casm here is wide but I can reach the otherside and finally claim what is mine.
It's about time.

2. My future dreams are sturing in my mind,
like a sunrise out across a distant ridge.
I gotta leave the past behind,
like water underneath a burning bridge.
I'd gladly walk out on this wire,
if it meant that I would finally see my prize.
I'd gladly jump across a lake of fire.
If it meant that all my dreams were realized.

Chorus
It's about time to take the leap and plunge into the water deep.
I know the casm here is wide but I can reach the otherside and finally claim what is mine.
It's about time.

Bridge
I gotta run this race, but sometimes I lack the strength to carry on.
I'm sick of losing face, so I gotta take the chance before it's gone.

Chorus
to take the leap and plunge into the water deep.
This is the chance I gotta take or I might die before I wake.
So I'll forget about the past and take each breath like it's my last.
I know the casm here is wide but I can reach the otherside and finally claim what is mine.
It's about time.
wowe.
I gotta claim what is mine.
It's about time.
Wowe.
Yeah.
