Born and Raised

Ok, it is no secret how much i love John Mayer and his way to write songs, specially because everything that he writes i feel like i could have written myself.

The way he sees things are so similar to my points of view that sometimes when im listening to one of his albums i don’t know how he can write exactly what i think or how i feel, it is truly amazing…. Well the albums and the lyrics grow as he does and as i do too, so that makes me even more static cause every album he does, seems to follow my train of though as i mature and grow along with him even though he`s older than me…

This song is something that speaks deep to my heart…

Now and then I pace my place
I can’t retrace how I got here
I cheat the light to check my face
It’s slightly harder than last year

CHORUS
Then all at once it gets hard to take
It gets hard to fake what I won’t be
Cause one of these days I’ll be born and raised
And it’s such a waste to grow up lonely

I still have dreams, they’re not the same
They don’t fly as high as they used to
I saw my friend, he’s in my head
And he said, “You don’t remember me, do you?”

CHORUS
Then all at once it gets hard to take
It gets hard to fake what I won’t be
Cause one of these days I’ll be born and raised
And it’s such a waste to grow up lonely

I still got time, I still got faith
I call on both of my brothers
I got a mom, I got a dad
But they do not have each other

CHORUS
So ride on up, take your place
And show your face to the morning
Cause one of these days you’ll be born and raised
And it all comes on without warning
