Stock Music track: Lately

This song was written to get some frustrations out of my system. When everyone seems to have these ideas and plans for you but they aren't what you have planned for yourself but you can't get anyone to listen. The lyrics are about turning it around and seeing yourself more positively. Not everyone is perfect but you can't worry about letting other people down, you need to take care of yourself. Available as a vocal version and an instrumental version.

Lyrics: Lately when I'm staring out of my window
When I rest my head on my pillow,
I just think of all the things you want me to be

You say, that I've got to live up to your reasons,
You're always coming up with new ones
And all these expectations
Are crashing down on me

But darling can't you see
I may talk a little too much
I may be a little out of touch
I'm a little crazy
And I'm not around enough

I may be a little wound up
I may play a little too rough
I'm a little lazy and I tend to interrupt
But lately I've been thinking that it's you
That doesn't measure up

Lately when I'm driving my car down the highway
And when I stay in on a Friday
I just think of all the things you want me to be

You say that I've gotta live up to your deadlines
You say that I'm wasting all my time
And all these expectations are crashing down on me
