You thought you lived like a movie star,
breakfast was sushi and caviar,
never suspect that you went too far,
but now you live in your rental car.
You never thought that you would ever be ashamed.
You took your time defending every step that you take.
You always knew there would be someone to blame
but every check you wrote was screaming your name.

Every second chance comes about
’cause you’re stuck in a pit.
Every second chance lets you
build a bridge and get over it.
Every second chance is just
another turn to dance,
so don’t tell me that you can’t
you know that you can g- g- get over it.

You think that you’re getting cynical;
you used to think life was beautiful.
Maybe you feel hypocritical,
but baby you’re not that pitiful.
You keep on persevering if you’re not dead,
you can’t wait for the cheering just to get out of bed.
You learn from all the shit that hurts you instead
and never let it all get over your head.

And it’s okay if you fall down
’cause even William Shatner failed and he’s still hanging ’round.
He came back to save the day.
You’re not him, but that’s okay,
I still love you anyway.

I call myself a piano rocker, but I’m really just kind of a goofball. I’ve been playing the piano since age 5, discovered electronic music at 12, and made this stuff my career in '99. Since then I’ve played the Grand Ole Opry, been quoted in Rolling Stone, and made a name for myself in new media. I’ve been playing piano rock full-time since 2007 and since then I’ve never looked back. ... more
