out on your own

What a delightful surprise!  This winter, my dad- Bill Hession– was clearing out some old computer files, and he came across a song we recorded when I was 15 (in 2002).  It isn’t a great song, and clearly of the two of us, my sister Melody Page has much more of a musical talent, but it isn’t a bad song either.  And the lyrics are pretty great.  It’s like Younger Me knew some of what Today Me would be doing, and wrote this little message to herself.  Or maybe it means I’ve been destined for this Wandering Journey for some time now and the signs are just catching up to me.

Anyway, now forever enshrined on the internetz- “Out On Your Own” by…Me.

 

Here are the words, in case you can’t understand my teenage rock star voice:

OUT ON YOUR OWN

Out on your own

You’re never ever alone

What you get

In life’s

What you make of it

Don’t know where you’re going

Or where

Where you’ve come from

But that’s all the fun

You know

When all’s said and done

Can’t believe you got this far

Could it be you don’t know where to go?

Just take it slow

Out on your own

You’re never ever alone

What you get

in life’s

What you make of it

Don’t know who or what you are

But don’t worry cause

No one ever really does.

Just take a hold of it

What you see is what you get

Oh NO!

The biggest lie you ever meet

You control it!

How you live is your whole life

Don’t give it up without a fight

Just live it right

Out on your own

You’re never ever alone

What you get

in life’s

What you make of it

Make it good

You should

Do what you want to do

Don’t take crap from anyone

Make sure your life’s fun

How you live is your whole life

Don’t give it up without a fight

Just live it right

Out on your own

You’re never ever alone

Out on your own

Out on your own

Out on your own
