I made this my junior year of high school.
This is the second single released off of my sample-based project titled THIS IS NOT MINE

80 beats/min


As I wrote most of it, I could hear jazz music behind it. But for the benefit of those who might like to hear the music that I heard in my mind as I wrote, those are reproduced musically...that is for those who may not quite understand

How can I be sure?

How can I be sure the time is right?
Lost in silver lining
Looking for a light

How can I be sure there's really more than this?
Hold on tight as hope starts to slip

How can I be sure all of this will end?
Searching for an answer
Unknowns pose a threat

How can I be sure I'm ready to move on?
The past is gone
It went by like dusk to dawn
