"In Front of the World" as written by and Stephen Kellogg....
It’s hard to live in front of the world
There’s only so much that you can pretend
Write down what it is you’re thinking
Take each day as it comes
You never know what’s hanging ‘round the bend

As far from the world as we get I can swear that the two of us will always be the same
Figure out what it is you believe in
And if you must choose
try not to trade your fortune in for fame

And you’ll learn, learn, learn
You’ll wait your turn, turn, turn
You’ll get sick on the way
By the things that people say
It’ll break your heart against the wind
But you will just keep breathing in

If you’re scared to live in front of the world
I’ve got news for you, you should be then
When your confidence gets low and you’ve got nowhere to go
Just remember how you felt about me and our friends

And we’ll learn, learn, learn
We’ll wait our turn, turn, turn
We’ll get sick on the way
By the things that people say
It’ll break our hearts against the wind
But we will just keep breathing in

Watch the way you fall in love
If you’re smart, you’ll take it slow
Don’t ask me about it, cause I don’t know,
I don’t know, know, know

But I’m gonna learn, learn, learn
I’ll take my turn, turn, turn
If I get sick on the way
By the things that people say
It’ll break my heart against the wind
But I will just keep breathing in

    General CommentThis is a song about getting through life, taking it day by day, never taking yourself too serious, not letting fear take over your life and knowing that your friends will always be there.

    Its such a good song about never giving up on yourself and on life.

    General CommentStephen wrote this song for his little brother when he graduated (either from high school or college, I forget). It's his advice to him about life.
