1. Ambition

From the recording Storybook

This song is about trying to encourage someone else, trying to be uplifting to others in pursuit of shared dreams and interests. The other name I had considered for this song is "Platform"


Don't you know
Deep in the corner of my soul
There's a goal that will never erode

Some hold on so strongly to their dreams
Some let it go (don't let it go)
Some just are too lazy
Some hold ambition close

Well, it makes me feel whole
Music makes me whole
and it fills the hole
It's better than 14 Karat gold
and I also see it in your soul

Tell me why do you hide
Tell me why you take fear's side
Won't you tell me why
you keep it all inside?
Tell me why you never cry
Tell me why your ambition died

Take my hand
Come partake in this show
Let it loose, all the genius that you know
We can both succeed together
in the same boat
Here's the platform
to let your ambition float

Swell the half to whole
Leave your love exposed
Feel it in your soul
