about

Obviously I'm a sucker for quotes. They are distilled truth. I try to collect them like some people collect postage stamps or baseball cards. “A coward dies a thousand deaths, a brave man only one” was said first, I believe, by Shakespeare. Of course it's attributed to many people online, everyone from Lincoln to Snooki, but I'm pretty sure William said it first. It strikes at the very heart of something for me, something I can't quite name. Especially in the current climate. But that's what this song “Best Of You” is about. Of course you're afraid, that's normal, that's healthy even. Just don't let it get the best of you. Don't let it steal your life away from you. “Fear is a poison well, a ringing bell, you can hear it now”. This is a song written to myself. A Memento-style tattoo on my arm to remind myself to push through that feeling in the pit of my stomach on those particularly challenging days. A sticky note on the steering wheel saying, “change oil”. I need those now and then.

lyrics

Fear is a hypocrite, A derelict
A counterfeit
Fear is a poison well, A ringin' bell
You can hear it now because
Everybody feels like they're fallin'
It's part of bein' alive

But don't let it get, don't let it get the best of you
It's not over yet, you got more to give
Don't let it break, don't let it take the rest of you
Yeah we all feel it, but don't let it steal
The best of you, the best of you, the best of you

Fear is a diplomat, It's gonna focus on
Everything you lack
Fear is a wrecking ball, Comin' through the wall
To try to take it all away
We've all got that voice on the inside
Sayin' you're not enough

But don't let it get, don't let it get the best of you
It's not over yet, you got more to give
Don't let it break, don't let it take the rest of you
Yeah we all feel it, but don't let it steal
The best of you, the best of you, the best of you

I'm talkin' to myself
Nobody else

Don't let it get, don't let it get the best of you
It's not over yet, you got more to give
Don't let it break, don't let it take the rest of you
Yeah we all feel it, but don't let it steal
The best of you, the best of you, the best of you
