about

'The Wisdom' is a song about finding your voice and having the confidence to be yourself in a world of people who are all too ready to tell you what to think, do and believe. It expresses the freedom felt when you learn to trust and believe in yourself.

lyrics

The Wisdom

I walked the streets where ancients roamed on cobbled stone, on cobbled stone
And in the crack I saw a flower, life had grown, a flower had grown
Why do we make things complicated? Just be silent, a wisdom of old
It’s my own voice that has spoken and I’m not broken, if truth be told

He said the apple doesn’t fall far from the tree, far from the tree
And if I opened up my eyes then I would see, then I would see
He preached the word of God in the market, but I didn’t hear it, it left me cold
Said that if I didn’t believe him, I’d regret that I didn’t save my soul

I’m the jack-of-all-trades, master of none, master of none
But I’m the master of myself and time has gone and time has gone
Why do we make things complicated? Just be silent, a wisdom of old
It’s my own voice that has spoken and I’m not broken, if truth be told
