about

Sometimes our hurt feelings, pride, regrets, guilt, etc... get in the way of enjoying any happiness in our lives. This song is about my struggle with these feelings.

lyrics

This Negativity, has defeated me, for the last time
It ain't too hard to see, It'll be the death of me
If the sun keeps refusing to shine
I'll pull back the shade, let the lovelight in
It's a fight for my life I can't not win
This Negativity, has defeated me, for the last time

The thoughts that prey upon, little things that you've done wrong, are the worst kind
They make it hard to see, the forest for the trees, when the occupy your mind
They keep holdin' on, they won't let go
If they had their way, you'd never know
The thoughts that prey upon, little things that you've done wrong, are the worst kind

When all you haven't done, the things you miss become, an anchor holding you down
You gotta let 'em go, drop what you think you know, before you sink and drown
Those thoughts are like an angry sea, they'll hold you down, won't let you be
When all you haven't done, the things you miss become, an anchor

The hurt inside, your foolish pride, will only hold you back
I hope before you die, you will realize, you been on the wrong track
When you're struggling just to climb that hill
Well there's always a way, if you've got the will
Then Negativity, has defeated you, for the last time
Oh Negativity, has defeated me, for the last time
Oh this Negativity, has defeated you and me, for the last time
