"Salvy" as written by and Arthur Carl Enders Chris Badami....
Everybody wants to be the person be who you look up to
And you see on t.v. but you know you're not,
Yeah you know you're not.
No rather, he's been running since the day he was 12
He knew he could be something, he just couldn't tell.
Cause' he was too cool, but he knows he could.

I think it gets him everyday.

Look at yourself, tracing circles of life.
That everybodies on.
Walk on your own, trip and you'll fall. get up.
But you love who you've become.

Maybe it's the people that you see on t.v.
Like the doctor who thinks that he knows everything.
Oh i'm sure you do, you should live it too.
Now deby she's been wrong since the day she was born,
There's always someone telling her of how shes wrong.
She knows she's not, yeah i know you're not.

At least listens everyday.
Look at yourself, tracing circles of life.
That everyones on.
Walk on your own. trip and you'll fall. get up.
But you love who you've become.

Look at yourself, tracing circles of life.
That everyones on.
Walk on your own. trip and you'll fall. get up.
But you love who you've become.

Now salvy he's been yelling for about 50 years,
Hes such a family member let me telling you something,
Oh he knows he's right, oh he knows he is right.
Everyones been telling me for my whole life
They know i was wrong, and i know you're right.
But i'm still unasigned, well i know you're right.

    General CommentLook at yourself, tracing circles of life.

    i think its saying we all seem to follow the leader through life and we are just walking in circles. but if we break that, go on our own. we may screw up but it wont matter because we are our own person and thats what counts.

    General CommentI can really relate to this deby character.

    I mean, she's been told that she's something that she knows in her heart and her mind that she definately isnt. She just puts up with it her entire life and just listens to it. She knows who and what she really is, what she's really capapble of, but listening to all the pessimistic people around her, and that's what humbles her.

    General CommentAs cheesey as the theme is, it's true and it's a good lesson. Just be yourself in life. Sure, you'll make some mistakes and trip once in a while, but it'll make you into your own person.

    General CommentIf you guys didn't know, Ace (the singer) has a person that's really close to him named Salvy. I just figured that this song is kind of about him. In one of the video's ace made for his recording studio, he said that Salvy just kind of yells at him but he loves him anyway. So maybe Ace has been living his life with mistakes and such, when there are people like Salvy telling him that he's screwing up since he's experienced it. He knows they're right but does it anyway.
