Wise Up!

Sunday's Lyrics

We often hear the saying “The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting a different result.”  Sometimes, the first step to improving one’s circumstance or making changes, is to first confront the brutal facts.  That means assessing where you are now with things – the good and the bad – and carving out a plan as to how to move forward.  The beautiful thing about life is that it is never too late to become what it is you hoped to be when you grew up.  Let me say that again… it is never too late to become what it is you hoped to be when you grew up. 

So, although your current reality may not be ideal, it marks only a starting point as you take giant steps in the direction of what it is you desire.  And each step forward is an increase in distance from the place you use to be.  Wise up, speaks to this, with the last line challenging us to wise-up or we might as well give up.

Life is beautiful.  And the best thing about it is that we can always start over.  No matter where we are in life… Choose your own adventure. 

Wise Up by Aimee Mann





It's not
What you thought
When you first began it
You got
What you want
Now you can hardly stand it though,
By now you know
It's not going to stop
It's not going to stop
It's not going to stop
'Til you wise up

You're sure
There's a cure
And you have finally found it
You think
One drink
Will shrink you 'til you're underground
And living down
But it's not going to stop
It's not going to stop
It's not going to stop
'Til you wise up

Prepare a list of what you need
Before you sign away the deed
'Cause it's not going to stop
It's not going to stop
It's not going to stop
'Til you wise up
No, it's not going to stop
'Til you wise up
No, it's not going to stop
So just...give up
