This song is written about aspiring to be the best I can be while staying true to who I am. I recorded & mixed this on January 27 & 28 2015.


I aspire to inspire before I expire
A squire who inquires until I am tired
A desire to be all that I admire
My passion is like an eternal fire

Do you know why you hold your beliefs?
Have you ever examined your reality?
Do you even care to ask yourself why?
Are you your true self or living a lie?

To know yourself is the greatest truth
You can't be happy without a clue
Of the thing that you love and value
This above all: to thine own self be true

Ask yourself is this how I want to live?
If not then what do you want to do different
If your filled with hatred it's time to forgive
Not for others but for your own benefit.


released January 28, 2015
All instruments & vocals recorded by Stephen Hanson. Mixed & mastered by Stephen Hanson.
