lyrics

Because you asked I’m going to tell you
How my road brought me here where I belong
I wanted acclaim, I needed admission
Into a world full of fame and glamour life

I hopped on a plane, a mustang of freedom
That took me away far beyond from where I was born
I landed these docks across the Atlantic
Eager for crowns, gold and grandeur in Kodak dreams

But then I began the schooling of life
The one that is real and the one that is tough
I learned from mistakes, my ego got roughed
Down to the depths of my natural self

Because you asked I’m going to tell you
I paid an arm and a leg to earn this prize
The man I was then, cosmetic and fragile
I buried behind and my soul is placid again

Because you asked I’m going to tell you
The warnings were there, on the wall, for all to see
I trained to be me, I learned to be helpful
And tend to the child deep inside, unspoiled and true

All of those years I fought to become
The one that I always imagined I’d be
The path was abrupt, tough and obscure
I couldn’t perceive how it ends or begins

All of those days of hard work and strain
All of them turned to be wonderful grains
And then there were sprouts, the blossoms of self
They taught me to be as sincere as I can
