about

One Up, my little music project, has saved my life. Right when I was getting sucked into the starving-artist hole of impatience and frustration, One Up pulled me out. It brought out the kid in me and reminded me of innocence, excitement, joy and connection. So this month's song is for that special someone or something that brings you back to... well, you.

lyrics

Verse 1:
I sip my coffee you drink your tea.
You’re the mad hatter,
I’m the princess with the pea.
You’re straight from a story,
one I wake up to every morning.

Chrous 1:
You bring out the kid in me,
the girl that’s wild and free.
The world is your playground
where we can dance around.
You sweep me up
now I‘m 10 feet off the ground.
My friends all agree
you bring out the kid in me.

Verse 2:
I barely made it through our first meal.
I sat there thinking “is he for real?”
I’m glad I gave you the chance
to show me the hidden man.
It was love at third glance.

Chorus 2:
You bring out the kid in me,
the girl that’s wild and free.
The world is your playground
where we can dance around.
You sweep me up
now I‘m 10 feet off the ground.
My friends all agree

Bridge:
I can fly. x 3

Verse 3:
I’m glad I gave you the chance
to show me a real man.

Chorus 3:
You bring out the kid in me
the girl that’s wild and free.
The world is your playground
where we can dance around.
You sweep me up
now I‘m 10 feet off the ground.

Chorus 4:
You bring out the kid in me
the girl that’s wild and free.
The world is your playground
where we can dance around.
You sweep me up
now I‘m 10 feet off the ground
My friends all agree
you bring out the kid in me.
