Song Description

Thrive Winston Churchill said that "success isn't final and failure isn't fatal. It's the courage to continue that counts." New York City-based songwriters, Steve Katz and Jon Klein capture the spirit of such courage in "Thrive," an inspiring tale of being pulled from the depths of despair by a special person in our lives. Both melodic and musically powerful, "Thrive" is uplifting and convincing in its message of the need to live one's best life, especially in our darkest hours, in order to carry on. Here's a message I got on youtube: Hey Steve, A friend of mine asked me to check out your song Thrive. It really helped me in my situation. I am in the Army, but being treated in Landsthul, Germany for heart and kidney failure. I was stationed in Kandahar, Afghanistan and on Jan 3, I woke up unable to breath. I was taken to the hospital where I was told I was experiencing congestive heart failure. My heart is severely damaged with only a 15% pumping ability. Then I was given the wrong medicine and that caused my kidneys to shut down. I really just wanted to die! I still need assistance with walking, dressing and taking a bath. I get depressed facing an uncertain future. I heard your song yesterday and it touched my heart. I have adopted as my motivation song for getting better. I am determined to get as strong as possible and Thrive! Thanks for sharing your gift with others! Sincerely, Brenda

Story Behind the Song

Jonathan Klein and I overheard a guy talking on the phone in a deli on 34th and 5th av in NYC. The guy seemed depressed at the beginning and happy and confident towards the end

Lyrics


Thrive © Music by Steve Katz lyrics by Jonny Klein

I guess it wasn't my time
I must 'a had something to live for
Then I made up my mind
To look inside
'Cause I'm startin' to see who I am
Starting to like what I see
(Chorus)
What I know is I'm gettin' better
I'm growin' stronger, I'll do more than survive
Next stops a brighter place, I'm finding my own space
I'm gonna' Thrive
Thrive

How did ya know ?
Just at that right time to call
Why'd I pick up that phone ?
I know why
Deep down I can see who I am
Starting to like what I see

Chorus)
What I know is I'm gettin' better
I'm growin' stronger, I'll do more than survive
Next stops a brighter place, I'm finding my own space
I'm gonna' Thrive
Thrive
