"New Resolution" as written by and Erika Wennerstrom....
my new resolution is to be
someone who does not take everything so seriously
I want to laugh and joke and have a smoke
and have a good time
and join an institution that will fuel my mind
whoever said ignorance, oh it was bliss
well, there's something there
that I declare they surely missed
'cause in the days and modern ways
you'll get passed by
try to have some fun
I always want to take it in stride

I was out there
on an open sea
no direction, and no one to lead

and then I looked back in there
how did we get there?
the water was foggy
but I didn't really care
'cause stagnancy makes me drown
and I really want to live

my new resolution is to be
someone who does not care what anyone thinks of me
'cause I don't even like myself half the time
and what's the use in worrying what's on other people's minds?

I was out there
on an open sea
no direction, and no one to lead

and then I looked back in there
how did we get there?
the water was foggy
but I didn't really care
'cause stagnancy makes me drown
and I really want to live

    General CommentHer voice is honey to my ears. A female voice of that power, singing the rock, is so rare! Love her. Love them. They are my secret jewel listening. Nobody knows them. How come? The power of music industry miseducation I guess. Whatever, I am fortunate to know them.
    Strong song BTW. Not my album's favorite but I love it.

    I love this part. Yeah, they are sort of my hidden gem as well... I've tried sharing a bit, but other people just don't understand. They're all fools who are missing out :)
