about

This is the first single of my new album Be, due out 01 Nov. 2019. I wrote this song thinking about the phrase 'you can be right or you can be happy'. Sometimes we want to be right so badly that we end up hurting the people around us just to prove appoint. This song is about my own journey to have open and honest conversation, and leave the daggers at the door.

lyrics

Here we go again
Same old story, same old picture, same old lecture

I wish we could let it be
Instead of inciting a riot in all our words of wisdom
It's such an easy fight, It's such an easy fight

When you're too busy bein' right
& I'm too busy bein' happy
You're too busy bein' right
We're slippin' away, until there's nothing left to fight for
Slippin' away, and we're both too busy bein' right

It's my turn again
crackin' jokes, givin' opinions not requested

I try to clear my head
But all I can focus on is this sounding board that never seems to lessen
If I could make you listen....

When I'm too busy bein' right
& you're too busy bein' happy
I'm too busy bein' right
We're slippin' away, until there's nothing left to fight for
Slippin' away, and we're both too busy bein'

Bein' right ain't bein' beautiful
It's just another way to show there's something wrong with everything you know
& though you're simply irresistible
I just can stand the fight

We're too busy bein' right
We should be busy bein' happy
We're too busy bein' right
Far too busy to be happy

We're too busy bein' right
We should be busy bein' happy
We're too busy bein' right
We're slippin' away, until there's nothing left to fight for
Slippin' away, and we're both too busy bein'

I'm too busy, you're too busy, we're just too busy
and it's about time we start bein'
