"Writing songs is super intimate. It's a bit like getting naked"~ Gwen Stefani


I look around to see
All the possibilities
Deep inside of me
I look to see

Who I really want to be
Cause I have a choice in life
Yes I have a voice in life

I have a say in the things I want to happen
The things I want to change

When I look around I see people so hard to believe
There so overcomplicated and completely overrated
I see if I want change
It has to be me to make it

Cause I don’t want to be just another face in the crowd
I want to be the one to figure things out

And I really do not mind if I stick out sometimes

Chorus
I look around to see
All the possibilities
Deep inside of me, I look to see

For a first song, this was really good. My favorite part was "'Cause I have a choice in life / Yes I have a voice in life."

Wonderfully written and awesome message. 5 stars.

The third stanza brought it down. It just doesn't fit I think you should rewrite the third stanza so it has about 3 or 4 lines instead of two, and I agree with brian on the third stanza part :) other than tht it was good

Thanks so much for the feedback!!!:) The point I was making was that I don't want to blend into the crowd of people who just go about life ignoring the truth. "I want to be the one to figure things out" it could also mean I want to be the one to find the truth! I really appreciate the constructive critisism.....and I hope I helped you to understand my point and I'm glad you like everything else!!!!:)

Firstly, i must give you congrats for another great peice. Secondly, and this was the first, and only real problem i had.

In the 5th part of the song, you said "I want to be the one to figure things out.", I didn't particularly get why those words were chosen, but i see where you going with the peice, and i full heartedly agree with you.
