Dream bigger

In a previous entry, I mentioned my thoughts on music and the impact it can have on people. In fact, while I was writing, I listened to “Bigger Than” by Justin Jesse & Seeb on Spotify. This song resonates with me on the subjects of achieving dreams and overcoming fears. Rather than try to explain it, I’ll allow the music to speak for itself. You can find the YouTube video and song lyrics below. I hope it connects with someone else as much as it does with me.

“Bigger Than”, a music video by Justin Jesso & Seeb

(Verse 1:)
I don’t wanna end up in a hospital room
Holding nobody’s hand
I don’t wanna end up drunk alone on a roof
Wanting what I don’t have
I don’t wanna end up looking back on my birthdays
Like they’re random Thursdays, no
I don’t wanna end up like that

(Chorus:)
I want a life that’s bigger than
All of the houses I wanna buy for my friends
A life that’s bigger than
Every person who ever told me I can’t
I’ll look back and wanna be remembered
For what I did, not what I had
A life that’s bigger than
Bigger than the fears I have

(Post-Chorus)
Bigger than, oh, bigger than, oh
Bigger than, what what I wanna be the–
Bigger than, oh, bigger than, oh
Bigger than, what what I wanna be the–
Bigger than, oh, bigger than, oh
Bigger than, what what I wanna be the–
Bigger than, oh, bigger than, oh
Bigger than, what what I wanna be the–
Bigger than, oh

(Verse 2)
I wanna say the right words every time that I speak
Have everyone listen
I wanna be my own boss so I don’t feel so lost
And be more ambitious
I wanna learn how to love whoever I want
Like it’s nobody’s business, yeah
I wanna end up like that

(Chorus)
I want a life that’s bigger than
All of the houses I wanna buy for my friends
A life that’s bigger than
Every person who ever told me I can’t
I’ll look back and wanna be remembered
For what I did, not what I had
A life that’s bigger than
Bigger than the fears I have

(Post-Chorus)
Bigger than, oh, bigger than, oh
Bigger than, what, what I wanna be the–
Bigger than, oh, bigger than, oh
Bigger than, what, what I wanna be the–
Bigger than, oh, bigger than, oh
Bigger than, what, what I wanna be the–
Bigger than, oh, bigger than, oh
Bigger than, what, what I wanna be the–
Bigger than, oh

(Chorus)
I want a life that’s bigger than
All of the houses I wanna buy for my friends
A life that’s bigger than
Every person who ever told me I can’t
I’ll look back and wanna be remembered
For what I did, not what I had
A life that’s bigger than
Bigger than the fears I have

(Post-Chorus)
Bigger than, oh, bigger than, oh
Bigger than, what, what I wanna be the–
Bigger than, oh, bigger than, oh
Bigger than, what, what I wanna be the–
Bigger than, oh, bigger than, oh
Bigger than, what, what I wanna be the–
Bigger than, oh, bigger than, oh
Bigger than, what, what I wanna be the–
Bigger than, oh, bigger than, oh
Bigger than, what, what I wanna be the–
Bigger than, oh, bigger than, oh
Bigger than, what, what I wanna be the–
Bigger than
