WHUT!?: When I was 7 years old, I lost my father to suicide.
I learned about the 'what is' at an early age.
I wrote this song for me and for him and for my family.

Lyrics

Standing (R. Selvaggio) (3:32)

Standing in a field of tall grass, I wave goodbye
Hoping this pain will pass, the reasons why
It doesn’t really matter how I feel, now that you’ve gone away
Putting my nose to the wheel, I make my way

And I just want to breathe in the air
Open my mind and I’m on my way there
Just want to be free in my heart
Open my eyes and become more aware of Life

Learning how to forgive, can’t carry the weight
Learning how not to live, I am my fate
Destiny takes you along, nothing you can say, no
Leaving it all up to you to find your way

And I just want to breathe in the air
Open my mind and I’m on my way there
Just want to be free in my heart
Open my eyes and become more aware of Life
I'm talking 'bout life, we live and die here every day

Standing in a field of tall grass, I wave hello
Hoping this pain will pass, I just let go
