"Came a Long Way" as written by and Erika Wennerstrom....
sometimes a silence seems
so loud to me
and i'm thinking out loud
and i'm trying to keep

too much reflection
isn't healthy for me
present and future
is where i need to be

but i'm stalling this story
i'm gonna fill it with glory
cause theres no place to go but up
and i'm changing my outlook
cause looking inwards
isn't always a good place to go

and i hold my head now
with a tear in my eye
cause i don't really
care no more
always so little things
that eat at your soul
and i'm not gonna
worry about them no more

i came a long way
came a-a long way
came a-a long way
came a-a long way

day by day
living this way
i'm gonna carry on
i'm i'm taking my time
gonna do things just right
i'm gonna carry on
ohohhh ohohhhm..

oh my head's always
been filled with worry
and i think it apart
and it will always bleed
i got no expectations
ain't got no regrets
when i was living that way
i wasn't living at all

well i'm stalling this story
gonna fill it with glory
cause theres no place to go but up
and i'm changing my outlook
cause looking inwards
wasn't always a good place to go

and i hold my head now
with a tear in my eye
cause i don't really care no more

oh it's those little things
that eat at your soul
and i'm not gonna worry
about them no more

i came a long way
came a-a long way
came a-a long way
came a-a long way

day by day
living this way
i'm gonna carry on
I'm I'm taking my time
gonna do things just right
i'm gonna carry on oh ohhh

into despise
let me discover
don't want to rewrite
my lover
and living thereby
cause i'm in your life and

how did i get here?

    My InterpretationThis is simply about her going through some hard times within herself, and overcoming, being resilient and finally being completely unapologetic about it.

    If there's ever a song I can relate to the most, this one takes the cake. It always makes me cry. Erika Wennerstrom is my soul sister, she has no idea how much she's helped me. Thank you.
