Lyrics: It's just another Thursday night downtown playing for an inconsistent crowd
Put a dollar in my tip jar, it's all that's in there so far
I'm hoping I can finally make enough
Cause I'm paying all my dues with every show by singing through this worn out microphone
Busy night but no one's watching, my voice unheard through all the talking
Is it worth it? I don't really know

It's hard to know if I should carry on when all my dreams have slowly turned to dust
All I know is that I'm tired of heading down a road that's just a dead end
Questioning if I am strong enough to not give up

The pacing back and forth inside my head has finally got me hanging by a thread
I'm sick and tired of indecisions tempting me to finally give in and give up on everything I've done to get this far

It's hard to know if I should carry on when all my dreams have slowly turned to dust
All I know is that I'm tired of heading down a road that's just a dead end
Questioning if I am strong enough to not give up

It's like I'm always moving backwards
I can't stand to face the fact that everybody's moving up but me
Now these doubts are spinning faster in my head
I'm like the ghost that never left

It's hard to know if I should carry on when all my dreams have slowly turned to dust
All I know is that I'm tired of heading down a road that's just a dead end
Questioning if I am strong enough to not give up

I won't give up

About the Artist
Jamestown Story Jamestown Story

These days, you don't find many independent artists capable of making a living off their music; Dane Schmidt however, has done so successfully for the last seven years, without the help of a record label. When you dig deeper into the Jamestown Story, it becomes very apparent why.

The Jamestown Story began in 2003 and since that time has independently sold over 250k songs on iTunes, 25k albums, toured 35 US states, played 350+ shows including tours in Canada & Japan, and has had over 75 TV placements on shows such as Dr. Phil, Jersey Shore, Snooki & JWoww, The Challenge Rivals 2, Teen Mom 2, One Tree Hill, The Real World, and Keeping Up With The Kardashians.

With an undeniable work ethic and the ability to adjust and change to the always shifting music industry, you can be confident that the Jamestown Story will be continuing to add more chapters to its tale for awhile.
