lyrics

Dear Me at 15...

I know you don't want to hear this, I remember how I used to be
Advice from someone older, on what they think you'll need
but I'm here to tell you, I've done it all before
and if there's anything I've learned it's there's always something more

You're gonna look around and wonder
"Just where to I belong?"
You're gonna try a lot of places
You're gonna get it wrong

But they're just stops you have to make
so be brave and see it through
and know that there's a place out there for you

The boy you'll cry over in college
The one you'll follow out West
The who'll teach you 3 chords
The one who'll think he knows best

They're just stops you have to make
so be brave and see it through
and know that there's someone out there for you

When you're feeling small, and unheard
Try and remember, these words

There will be a lot of joy
A lot of sadness in between
Plenty of second guessing while you wear your heart out on your sleeve
But they're just risks you have to take
so be brave and see it through
and know that there is room out there for you
know that there is room out there for you

Love me,
From 2017
