Upcoming outgoing

I was recently inspired by some colleagues at the 'ole day gig who have moved onto bigger and better things. For the record, if there is such a thing, I am happy for them and sad to see people that I’ve worked and shared the struggle with go at the same time. In the age of social media we still stay connected but it’s still not the same. Maybe that’s a good thing? I leave it you to ponder.

It is a cliché that relationships are hard. A songwriter and performers job is to take that idea and make it work.

Upcoming outgoing - Timothy Pratt (c)2015

We all want to get more
To make our dreams real
to the pain we defend
all that was promised
But things don’t always happen
The way we think they will
 
Always knew that you were
Upcoming but outgoing
Always figured soon you’d be
Outgrowing all of this
Hey, you’re on your way
Upcoming but outgoing
So confident carefree moving on
that’s great
 
Feels like you’re leaving again
But this time it’s real
I hope we’ll still be friends
But let’s be honest
Probably too hard to happen
Vultures are circling your wagon
 
Always knew that you were
Upcoming but outgoing
Always figured soon you’d be
Outgrowing all of this
Hey, you’re on your way
Upcoming but outgoing
So confident carefree moving on
that’s great
