STORY

We spend a lot of time chasing happiness and there is a endless supply of opinion leaders, celebrities and

even scientists who will tell you the optimum formula or method to achieve it. At the time I wrote this lyric,

a source of my happiness was derived from the simple act of driving around and listening to music with

someone I cared for. Yet, even when I had this source of happiness, I had greater longings for success with

my music and wanted to be sure I was progressing with it. I believe that when we focus and commit to

something, it greatly increases our chances of achieving what we set out to do. When we figure out a way to

make a living from doing what we love, it seems to be that would bring a greater sense of happiness then

simply pursuing wealth, fame or whatever. This song is about deciding what we think we will most enjoy

and going all to pursue it. For me, this is music and writing songs. Well I do mention an everlasting sense

of happiness in this song when I say “your permanent vacation” even my love of music comes with it’s own

challenges. Essentially, without these trying times we wouldn’t know the opposite of ease and delight, so it’s

not worth trying to pursue a state of constant bliss. Simply enjoy what brings you happiness when it comes.
