about

I wrote this for Brian's niece Patricia Castillo. She inspired both the song and Brian's production. (Brian and Patricia share a birthday, so she is very special to him.) This is driving down the road with the windows open singing at the top of your lungs kind of music, so get ready to rock. Thanks Dawna for helping to make this happen!

Here's to you Patricia, in your 21st year of life. May your story keep unfolding in beauty.

lyrics

I am shy and I am bold
I am young and I am old
I am telling my story
If you think that you know me
Take another look you might see
I am a brand new story

And I am flying down this wild wide road
I’m tearing up the scripts I used to know
Got a little bit of time and a little bit of money
Burning through me
Got a hole in my shoe and a rip in my jeans
And I don’t think about it
If you wanna know me now
You better set aside your judgements
I am here…it’s my story

I am rich and I am poor
I’m ecstatic, I am bored
I am telling my story
I am soft and I am stark
Slivers of light and bones in the dark
I am all of these stories

And I am flying down this wild wide road
I’m tearing up the scripts I used to know
Got a little bit of time and a little bit of money
Burning through me
Got a hole in my shoe and a rip in my jeans
And I don’t think about it
If you wanna know me now
You better set aside your judgements
I am here…it’s my story


I am turning the pages
Of my life
And if you want to meet me
I am here, I am here, I am here

I am quiet, I am loud
I am humble, I am proud
I am telling my story
Magic comes and blows through me
I listen to the wind, it sets me free
I am living my story

And I am flying down this wild wide road
I’m tearing up the scripts I used to know
Got a little bit of time and a little bit of money
Burning through me
Got a hole in my shoe and a rip in my jeans
And I don’t think about it
If you wanna know me now
You better set aside your judgements
I am here…it’s my story

I am shy and I am bold
I am young and I am old
I am telling my story
