Song #3, March - “Loser”
Updated: May 4
The third song in Project 2020 is now available for you to listen.
I started #Project2020 in January.
Began working on “Loser” about 4-5 weeks ago, when this whole Corona craziness was just starting. I had no idea what things would be like just a month later. So I guess it’s not really topical at the moment, but there’s still some stuff in there that might speak to you. ‘Loser' is about any of us. Me included. You included. It’s about all those time when we couldn’t push ourselves out of our comfort zones. When we wanted to say something but were too embarrassed or shy to say it. When we wanted to learn how to play an instrument or learn that new language but always found an excuse that there was no time. When we gave up on things we loved. When we let an opportunity slip away because we lacked the courage. When we became aware of time ticking away and that made us scared. I can’t be the only one who can’t turn off my buzzing brain at night, thinking of all this and more! I can’t be the only one who struggles with discipline, with procrastination, with beating myself up over it, with working hard and also having a social life, etc etc etc. Does that make me Loser? I don’t necessarily think so. But sometimes if feels like it. But hey, if you’re self isolating, why not pick up that instrument now? Why not finish reading, or even writing that book? Why not check out that online course you were always too busy for? Whoever strives to be better, can’t be a loser. Am I right?
