Autopilot (Original Song) - Mason Chapello

208 views 2 months ago
My performance from the 2014 SHS Showtime. This was my first time ever performing one of my originals in front of a live audience. This song is extremely personal, so it was difficult to sing it on stage. I felt vulnerable and exposed... but I have never felt more connected with an audience in my entire life. Thank you to everyone who was there to support me during the tough times that inspired this song, and to Lauren Licursi for accompanying me and helping me bring my music to life.

LYRICS

Said I'd never do wrong
Truth is I'm not strong enough to keep myself
Away from the words of someone else
All I've come to know Is acting like I know how to kill the hurt
Moving on doesn't always work

Why do I try
Running away like I didn't hear a word they said
Why do I go
Blaming myself for the things somebody else did

Why do I
Gotta jump the line
If I take the time
I'll learn just how to
Fly oh I
Gotta hop up on cloud 9
Once I finally find it
I'll be in autopilot

Now I'm breaking down the walls
You won't notice at all because of the words you say
I'm not gonna let the hate block my way
I built another road it's a place that only I know
Try'na keep it real
You're never gonna know just how I feel

I respect the pride in people's eyes when they come and tell me
even though I can't see
it wouldn't be the same without me

Why do I try
Running away like I didn't hear a word they said
Why do I go
Blaming myself for the things somebody else did

Why do I
Gotta jump the line
If I take the time
I'll learn just how to
Fly oh I
Gotta hop up on cloud 9
Once I finally find it
I'll be in autopilot

Wish you knew just what a smile hides
Do you know what it's like to live a life of 1000 lies
Loving you I didn't get that far
Here I am now bleeding with all these scars

Said I'd never do wrong
Truth is I'm not strong enough to keep myself
Away from the words of someone else
