Now Is Not Forever

Somebody get me out this mess I'm in
See i've been tryin' to do the best I can
But I keep on stumblin' over and over again
I ain't got no more excuses for ya
All that I can say is sorry
Won't you please come rescue me as quickly as you can

It's crazy how far we go
Just to put a little gas in our ego
That's what happens when your self esteem is low
We'll do anything to get people to notice us I know
It's tough but hey, imagine us throwin' our lives away
Because we're listenin' to the voice inside that chants
Says we'll never be significant if we can't
Fit in so we get into all kinds of trouble tryin' to be somebody we're not
Since in the beginning we've been givin' into the lie that says that we got
To keep up with the Jones's or get left behind
So we end up in debt tryin' to catch up it's messed up
'Cause ten years from now we can't press rewind
I want to invest in what stands the test of time

Iím so sick and tired of being down and out
Tryin' to do whatís right but wrong keeps comin out
I keep on tryin to write but songs ainít comin out
Plus now Iím getting older and time is runnin out I know,
Growthís a process but I canít see my progress
And Iím startin' to feel that my laborís in vain
So I hold on to the promise instead of my problems
Otherwise this stress is gonna drive me insane
Yes there's more to life than workin' 9 to 5
Buyin' things that make you feel fuzzy inside
I tried it and it worked at first for five minutes
But left me in the cold to hang like icicles oh!
Now I'm froze like a popsicle
Feel's like my mission's impossible
I'm stuck up in a maze full of obstacles
Keep on ending where I'm not supposed to go

I just want to be okay with who I am, not have to run away
I'm so tired of trends I can't keep pretending
Playing these foolish games

(Brian Reith)

Behind the Song:
"Too often we act like we have it together. But the reality is that we don't. Mess is an honest and vulnerable song about my mistakes, frustrations, failures and regrets. It's one of the more catchy songs that I've written, and probably the one that has made me comparable to Jason Mraz. I love the organic sound and groove of the track, horns and strings especially, thanks to Phil Lassiter and David Davidson." - B.Reith
